An important aspect of the Gilbert Lake Management Plan has been enhancing communication with our lake association members. In that regard, we added a Facebook page for sharing pictures, asking questions of one another, and posting items of a more social nature. The centerpiece of our communication strategy was developing a website. With no previous experience in web development, I have learned to build and maintain our website. We are now able to share timely information with our members. We have posted a great deal of information about our Lake Management Plan, including information about such topics as shoreland restoration, water quality, and invasive species. When a tornado blasted across our lake, we were able to keep our members updated with the latest information, and we have added information about the high water issues we are facing.
