Runyan Lake Information
This page is intended for property owners seeking information about Runyan Lake and Runyan Lake Inc.
Runyan Lake Inc. (RLI) has jurisdiction over the lands abutting Runyan Lake, and also other properties around Runyan Lake by virtue of being a Summer Resort Corporation. RLI was issued a corporation charter by the state of Michigan on November 10, 1950, and is authorized and empowered by Michigan Public Act 137 of 1929, and Michigan Public Act 44 of 2006. A complete description of the territory under RLI's jurisdiction can be found in the recitals of the RLI Bylaws. A MAP of the territory can be accessed below.
Association Basics: RLI has jurisdiction over the lands within its territory, but limits that jurisdiction to matters which directly affect Runyan Lake. RLI is not involved with architectural standards, neighborhood developmental standards, roads, or utilities. Tyrone Township zoning regulations govern property developmental standards. The Livingston County Road Commission (LCRC) owns and maintains the road systems, except where private roads are established. RLI manages lake access, lake water quality, lake use safety, aquatic weed control, association sponsored social events such as the 4th of July fireworks and Music Night on the Island, and owns and maintains the boat ramp and island properties.
There are also three neighborhood associations within the RLI territory: the Runyan Lake Heights Association, Inc. (RLHAI), the Runyan Lake Point Property Owners Association, Inc. (RLPPOA), and the Runyan Lake East Condominium Association. More information about these associations can be found HERE.
Dues are established by vote of the Membership during the Fall General Meeting, and invoiced in January of each year to each property within the RLI territory having a unique property tax id. RLI does not prorate dues. Unpaid dues will result in a lien being placed on the property as set forth in the RLI Bylaws. Please reference the RLI Dues page for annual dues assessed.
