The purpose of this plan is to provide a framework for the protection and improvement of Gilbert Lake. Implementing the content of this lake management plan (LMP) will enable citizens and other supporters to achieve the vision for Gilbert Lake now and in the years to come. The plan was developed by community members who learned about the lake and identified features important to the Gilbert Lake community to help guide the fate of the lake. It is a dynamic document that identifies goals and action items for the purpose of maintaining, protecting and/or creating desired conditions in a lake and identifies steps to correct past problems, improve on current conditions, and provide guidance for future boards, lake users, and technical experts. Because many entities are involved in lake and land management, it can be challenging to navigate the roles, partnerships and resources that are available; the planning process and content of this plan have been designed to identify where some key assistance exists. The actions identified in this LMP can serve as a gateway for obtaining grant funding and other resources to help implement activities outlined in the plan.
