Hello Diamond Lake Association members.
Below, please find a copy of the “Strategic Plan for the Diamond Lake Association”. This plan emanates from a need and desire on the part of the Board of Directors to become more proactive regarding significant issues facing the Diamond Lake ecosystem, especially the threat of AIS. More specifically, a subcommittee’s charge (see membership below) was to create a Plan to address both immediate and long-term issues facing the Board. These include the following:
as a “living document” the “Plan” both defines and monitors the progress and future problems facing the Association
a Plan is a prerequisite for most sources of external funding, especially for the DNR and its grant programs
this Plan will serve as a formal guide and charge for the DL Board and its stakeholders and is an expression of the vitality of the organization
This Plan was designed and drafted by a subcommittee on water quality/lake management during the early part of 2021 and presented to the DL Board for review at its meeting on May 29, 2021. Approval was granted and the Board now seeks Association member input for a 30 day period for any subsequent revisions that are deemed appropriate. Thereby, the Board requests your perusal of the document. Questions or comments may be directed to any member of the DL Board or the subcommittee. Also, we welcome your informal input at any of the DL gatherings during the summer season. Thank you!
President, DL Association
Ed Wallen, 2021 Coordinator of the Subcommittee on Water Quality/Lake Management
