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.

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
