Mission Statement - To promote and to operate as a community of common interest to protect and enhance the water quality, water safety, land values, enjoyment of property and social relations at Lake Cora, Van Buren County, Michigan. To buy, sell, hold, lease and control real or personal property as may be incidental to the foregoing purposes but not for profit.
History - Prior to 1972, some small groups made attempts to form some kind of lake homeowners' association, but it wasn't until 1972 that the corporation as we know it took shape. At that meeting, the group set six specific goals: to promote social activities, the general welfare of the lake, regulations on boats and non-residents as needed, historical interest, conservation and pollution control, the organization to air any suggestions beneficial to the lake.
Residents pay a yearly fee to cover the costs of maintaining water quality and other expenses as they occur.
Lake bottom is fibrous peat, pulpy peat and sand
Public Access site off West St. and Hill Drive with parking and toilets. Ramp is hard surfaced. Limited water depth may make launching and retrieving larger boats difficult.
2017 Weed Treatment and Water Update In May the lake was treated for the invasive weed Milfoil. The chemical we used was 24-D, the same approved chemical we have been using for a number of years. As we have stated in the past, we are in good shape with the small amount in our lake and we continue to hold our own. Dennis Tebout, and others successfully applied the chemicals. Thank You! During this past winter, with little ice coverage, we had a very limited fish kill. However, with so little ice we did not have the winter kill of the weeds we normally have.
