August 8 LITC Picnic.
Bill Fitzpatrick, of Aquatic Environment Consultants, will be treating the three lakes for bladderwort and pond weed Wednesday morning, June 17th. He has advised us of the following:
"The treatment of all three lakes is scheduled for the morning of June 17th. There will not be any restrictions on swimming, fishing or boating following the treatment of the lakes. There will not be any restriction on domestic animals drinking from the lakes, as long as it isn’t their main source of drinking water. There will be a restriction on using the lake water for irrigation purposes for 5 days following the treatment."
RULE CHANGE: Friday, October 11, 2019 the LITC Board of Directors adopted a change in the rules and regulations. It will be found under BEACH & BOATS. It was: 1. No boats propelled by gasoline engines are allowed on the lake.
1. No boats or personal water craft propelled by gasoline engines or forced pressure by the use of a powering water jet pump are allowed on any lakes within Lake in the Clouds East or Lake in the Clouds West.
Some of the most exciting "events" experienced at Lake in the Clouds are provided by Mother Nature. We are quite fortunate to see a variety of animals that roam our community.
The office hours:
CLOSED: Monday, July 27

Now that spring is here, and many are planting and tending their gardens, the Greenspace Committee of Lake in the Clouds would like to remind people about the National Wildlife Federation recommendations of plants that help sustain and support wildlife in our area, especially birds and butterflies. Please feel free to use the link below for more information, and consider being a certified habitat!
tree of heaven
A stand of Tree of Heaven trees in LITC East has been identified and work will be undertaken to eradicate them. These trees, which are non-native and invasive, are like magnets for Spotted Lantern Fly. If you see any more that look like the pictures below, please contact Jim Griffin, chairman of the Greenspace Committee at 201-953-0598, so he can include those on LITC common property in the treatment plan. He can also provide advice on managing any on your own lots. Do not just cut them down as they will re-sprout 10x over. You have to use herbicide.
To be in compliance with a mandate by the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Lake in the Clouds had do a robotic survey this fall of our sluice gate. The video showed that additional information was needed. To get this, it was suggested the lake could be lowered. The BOD opted to hire Underwater Consultants to bring in divers to do the research.
The team came on Sunday, January 26. There were five divers, one that actually went into the water while the others monitored the equipment. The diver checked the perimeter of the tower as well as the interior. They were here for about six hours.
We will be getting a report with their recommendations and a video that will be sent to DEP.

Learn to play this fun sport that combines elements of tennis, badminton, and ping-pong. Two or four players use solid paddles to hit a perforated polymer ball (think Wiffle Ball), on a badminton-sized court. The game and rules are easy for beginners to master
(https://www.usapa.org/what-is-pickleball/). As you become a more experienced player, the game will be more fast-paced and competitive.
In order to be in compliance with state guidelines until LITC (both Monroe and Pike Counties) is in a green zone the Board of Directors decided at their May 8th meeting that:
Pavilion and clubhouse rentals are discontinued.
Clubhouse - If you belong to a group that needs a place to meet or plan to form a group, please call the office at 676-0900.
The Pavilion is available for parties. Call the office for details.
Adopt Your Road - LITC is usually very free from road trash, pristine even. But, occasionally there is a cup, a bottle, a paper of some sort along the road or in the grasses. When you're out for a walk, consider carrying a bag and gloves and picking up that trash. If we all do that, we will ensure that LITC remains one of the cleanest in the Poconos. Thanks for your help.
Reminder - Please clean up after your pet on roads and in community areas.
FALL/SPRING CULVERT CLEANOUT - All property owners are responsible for keeping drainage ditches and culverts on or bordering your property cleaned out and free of leaves and debris. When water cannot run freely it backs up and erodes our roads increasing our community maintenance costs. PLEASE! Once in the Fall after the leaves are down and once in the Spring before the heavy rains - take the time to clean out all your drainage areas.
