Lake Charlevoix is Getting a New Marina


Charlevoix Yacht Club is getting a new home just north of Ferry Beach Park on the shores of Lake Charlevoix, according to Petoskey News. Planning commissioners reviewed and approved the project plans during a monthly city hall meeting, despite objections from residents who live nearby.

“They were a little concerned about noise and traffic, but mainly about noise,” Jonathan Scheel, the Charlevoix Zoning Administrator, told Petoskey News. “Commissioners thoughtfully discussed that and put a condition that events follow the existing ordinance on noise, which means the noise level is gone by 11 p.m.”

Construction will start near the vicinity of one of Irish Boat Shop’s Charlevoix operations in the spring. For more information, visit
