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.

Final 2016 Long Beach Comprehensive Plan for Council Adoption
Following a nearly year-long process, with considerable input and involvement from residents, the 2016 Comprehensive Plan has been passed by the Advisory Plan Commission to the Town Council for adoption. Thank you to everyone for your feedback and engagement throughout the process. And, thank you to the subcommittee members who worked to develop the process with McKenna and Associates. The Town Council will vote on adopting the plan at the January 2017 Council Meeting. Here is a copy of the plan: Final 2016 Long Beach Comprehensive Plan For Adoption.pdf


Proposed Ordinance Revisions - 30 Day Rentals
Following direct feedback from the comprehensive planning process, the Advisory Plan Commission has provided a revised 30-day rental ordinance. It does not eliminate the existing ordinance that has been in place since 2002, prohibiting short term rentals less than 30 days. The revisions have been a topic of discussion during the last several APC meetings, and the latest version can be viewed here (REVISED 30 DAY RENTAL ORDINANCE DRAFT 12-16-2016.pdf). Feedback can be submitted by attending a future APC meeting in-person or by emailing towncouncil@longbeachin.org.


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. The APC and Town Council are seeking your input in helping to adhere to this Town rule in a way that is fair to all. A revised draft of the existing ordinance can be found here (GARBAGE TOTERS UPDATED ORDINANCE DRAFT 12-17-2016.pdf). Feedback can be submitted by attending a future APC meeting in-person or by emailing towncouncil@longbeachin.org.


Proposed Ordinance Revisions - Non-Conforming Structures
Existing ordinances prohibit you from making a structure/lot more non-conforming. But, did you know the existing ordinances also prevent residents from making modifications to non-conforming structures - in some cases, resulting in reducing the level of being non-compliant? A proposal to modify the existing ordinance can be found here (REVISED NON-CONFORMING USES AND STRUCTURES ORDINANCE DRAFT 12-16-16.pdf). Feedback can be submitted by attending a future APC meeting in-person or by emailing towncouncil@longbeachin.org.


Proposed Ordinance Revisions - View Protection Standards
Draft revisions are being proposed to the existing View Protection Standards ordinance dealing with situations that occur when multiple lots are joined. A revised draft can be found here (REVISED VIEW PROTECTION STANDARDS DRAFT 12-16-16.pdf). Feedback can be submitted by attending a future APC meeting in-person or by emailing towncouncil@longbeachin.org.
