Lakes CommissionPurpose

The Lindenhurst Lakes Commission supports a comprehensive program that incorporates both protection and restoration activities, as appropriate, to effectively improve and maintain the quality of our Village lakes.

Meetings are held on the 3rd Tuesday of every other month in the Village Hall board room (January, March, May, July, September, and November).
