Welcome to Long Beach



Set along the shores of Lake Michigan in a unique setting, Long Beach boasts its small town charm and access to the lake. Long Beach was originally established in the 1920's when it was predominately a summer getaway. With close proximity to Chicago, Michigan's Harbor Country and all that Indiana has to offer, Long Beach is a great community to raise a family, enjoy the seasons or just visit. Welcome.

TOWN ENTRY SIGN
Earlier this year, the Long Beach Civic Association agreed to fund a new Town Entry Sign, which will be located along Karwick Rd., on the East Side, in front of the new Country Club Fence, just past the Hacienda entrance. Designer Stu Franzen came up with the original concept, which has been modified and Landmark Sign Group has been engaged as well. A draft design of the latest version can be found here: Long Beach Entry Sign 10-16-2017.pdf


STOP 24 IMPROVEMENT PROJECT
As part of a long-term community improvement plan, demolition of the pump house structure was issued for public bid and a contractor was selected. Demolition work is expected to commence this fall. Meanwhile, a concept plan for the site has been considered and developed, but a final construction plan has not been decided.

A public feedback session was recently held. If you were unable to attend, please send any questions or feedback to Councilman Nick Meyer at meyernick@hotmail.com or call 219.313.0000 (cell).

Proposed Ordinance Revisions - Garbage Toters and Bins
All of us want Long Beach to look its best. The existing ordinance says that residents must not place their garbage/recycling bins curbside sooner than the evening before they're picked up, and they must pull them back by sundown of the day they're picked up. The visibility of garbage bins continues to be one of the top concerns raised by residents. A revised draft will be posted shortly.
