DL Committee & Board Updates

Come back often.  Watch for updates on a regular basis.


  • August 4, 2022, the DL Board sent a survey to members, asking if they would like the board to pursue an ordinance similar to other area lake associations/districts.  Taking into account any duplications, 44 households responded to the survey.  38 voted YES, 4 voted NO, and 2 voted NEUTRAL.  See the Fall Newsletter 2022 for more information.

  • September 14, 2022, Bob Jacobel, Scott Johnson, and Raye Lahti met with the Grand View Town Board  (GVTB) to present our case for a need  of an ordinance.  The board was receptive and understood the situation.  They had a few questions that they are currently pursuing with the DNR and other town boards before proceeding.  Stay tuned.  We will be sending our Diamond Lakers a copy of a DRAFT ordinance, polling our members, and asking for comments.  The entire process towards GVTB approval to proceed, DNR review, public hearing  and vote by the Town Board will take several months.

  • March 10, 2023, 2023 Audit Report

  • April 12, 2023, The Grand View Town Board signed a Wake Boat OrdinanceSee Ordinance.

  • April 29, 2023, New Loon Platform - has been completed, and put in place.  Thank you Raye Lahti and Mark Wilhelm.


  • Shoreline Assessment Education—The Board approved tentative plans for shoreline assessment education in July, 2023 in which the entire shoreline of Diamond Lake will be evaluated according to defined footage (not by parcels). This will be the preface to future, long-term efforts toward improvements to the water quality and ecosystems of Diamond Lake which is the core of our strategic plan.

  • Wash Station – An area has been examined near the boat launch that should serve as an adequate place for a self-service cleaning area. A pre-application  grant letter will be sent to the DNR in mid-September

It is amazing how excited the new board of directors were to attend their first board meeting on July 27, 2022.  They came via kayak, bicycle, foot and car.  They are off to a good start. (Not pictured: Tom Kraker and Dave James.)
