Rules & Regulations
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.
Pre-Building Permits
Dear Association Member:
With the coming of Spring, over the past couple of months, there has been an
increase in work being done on Association member homes and properties.  These are great efforts to improve properties, but we are continuing to have issues with home owners not following the Association and Town of Harwinton procedures for requesting Building Permits.
I have been asked by Jeff Neuman, Town of Harwinton Building Official, who is  
responsible for Building Permits to remind Association Members that permits are required for all work except as 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.
I have also been asked to remind Association Members that no construction work can be started without a Town Building Permit and in order to obtain a building permit from the Town, you must first contact the Association and provide the following:
1) A completed Building Pre-permit, SEPTIC AND TAX COMPLIANCE FORM found here.
2) Verification that the home's septic tank has been pumped within three (3) years. 
3) Verification from the Association Treasurer that all Association taxes on the property are paid.
If you have any questions on the above please do not hesitate to contact me at president@lakeharwinton.com. and/or see the Building section of the site, found here
Thank you in advance for your cooperation on this matter. 
Paul M. Rosin
LHA Board President

Beach and Parking Lot Improvements
Dear Association Member:
Happy Memorial Day!  Over the past week a group of volunteers, including Dave Blouin, Claude Adair, Mark DeNegre and myself, with the assistance of Bill Gilbert, have accomplished the following:
  • Resurfaced the three Association beach parking lots with a composite material that is environmentally safe and hopefully resistant to the wear and tear of use and the New England weather.
  • Installed parking curbs to hopefully create additional parking spaces and safety.  Please make every effort when utilizing the lots to pull straight up to the curb and center on the reflectors installed at each space.
