Welcome to Lake Harwinton tucked away in the Litchfield Hills of Connecticut.
 
A private lake community open for the enjoyment of its members and their families.  Swimming from our three sandy beaches, kayaking, fishing and boating with electric motors provide our members with a tranquil experience on one of the cleanest lakes in the state.

Building Permits

Over the last couple of months, and with the arrival of spring we anticipate an increase in work being done on Association member homes and properties.  Please take this as a reminder that prior to initiating many projects, home owners are responsible to complete an Association Pre-Building Permit and then apply for a Town of Harwinton Building Permit.
 
According to Jeff Neuman, Town of Harwinton Building Official, Building Permits are required for all work. Exceptions are the listed below:

* One-story detached accessory structure used as tool and storage sheds, playhouses and similar uses, provided the floor area does not exceed 200 square feet. (zoning approval required)
* Fences not over 6 feet high 
* Retaining walls that are not over 3 feet in height measured from finished grade at the bottom of the wall to finished grade at the top, unless supporting a surcharge
* Papering, painting, tiling, carpeting and similar finish work 
* Prefabricated swimming pools that are less than 24 inches deep. 
* Swings and playground equipment. 
* Window awnings supported by an exterior wall which does not project more than 54 inches from the exterior wall and does not require additional support.
 
The Association Pre-Permit form is available on the LHA Website and can be sent to President@lakeharwinton.com with a verification that the home's septic tank has been pumped within three (3) years. 
 
If you have any questions on the above please do not hesitate to contact me and/or see the Building section of the site, found here
 
Thank you in advance for your cooperation on this matter.

LHA Board President
