Welcome to the Village of Lakeview
Montcalm County, Michigan
With the arrival of winter, we are reminded that our Department of Public Works will be working to remove snow and help maintain our streets and parking areas for everyone's safety. This is a friendly reminder that there is no parking on any Village Street between the hours of 2AM - 6AM. Also, there is no parking for more then 72 hours in any municiple parking lot. Please note there are designated areas to park, if you are using a public lot. Signs are located at these locations for your convenience. Unfortunately, vehicles that remain in the restricted areas will be towed.
We would also like to remind business owners, and home owners to keep side walks cleared and to clear snow from fire hydrants on, or in front of properties, in case we need one in an emergency. Valuable time can be lost if firefighters need to shovel out a hydrant in the event of a fire.
Take a look at the Village Historic Downtown page to see long-ago photos of Lakeview and learn more about our community's history.
