What is Your View of Muskegon Lake and White Lake? What is best about these lakes? How do they compare to other places in West Michigan? What investments should our community make in order to continue to improve the quality of the lakes and access to them?

Please share your thoughts on these and other questions by following one of the links below and completing a 12-minute confidential survey. The two surveys are nearly identical, so we assume you will have time and interest to complete one survey only. If this is the case, complete the survey for the lake with which you are more familiar – White Lake or Muskegon Lake.
