Proposed New or Revised General Ordinances

Watercraft Restrictions, Proposal to Amend Section 40-23

The Bloomfield Township Board of Trustees is examining an amendment to this existing ordinance that regulates boating on certain lakes in the Township.  The intent of the proposed ordinances is to update the current restrictions in order to maintain the status quo in light of dramatic technological change. Maintaining the status quo means expanding restrictions beyond “motorboats” to also include high-powered electric-propelled watercraft and to preclude speeds above no wake speeds and/or 10mph. 
Last winter, the Township Board held Public Hearings during which these ordinances were discussed. 
 Proposed Watercraft Ordinances
In order for Bloomfield to adopt the proposed ordinances that regulate watercraft on a lake in the Township, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (“DNR”) must approve.  The DNR will issue an initial assessment and conduct formal Public Hearings in our community.  The timing for issuance of the initial assessment and scheduling of the Public Hearings is set by the DNR.
This is a summary of the ordinances, the project, and upcoming steps.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Clerk’s Department at (248) 433-7702.  If you cannot attend, but have a comment to pass along to the DNR, please email
