Michaywé Governance


The Association is a non-profit organization which was formed to manage and administer the affairs of an association of property owners in a Planned Unit Development (PUD) known as Michaywe; to promote the welfare of its members by maintaining and beautifying the several developments and subdivisions in which its members own or possess real property interests; to enforce building and use restrictions; to represent members before governmental boards or bodies; to promote social and recreational activities; and to engage in such other activities as are incidental thereto and not forbidden by the laws of the State of Michigan.

Deed Restrictions – Restricted Properties


The Master Deed Restrictions for the Michaywe Planned Unit Development (PUD) is the governing document upon all the property within Michaywe.  This document defines what the restricted properties are (i.e. lots, parks and other lands) and how they can be used (building requirements, restrictions, fines, etc.).  This document is recorded at the Otsego County Register of Deeds and is a lien and encumbrance upon the land.

Opal Lake Park Rules & Regulations Changes


A new "Opal Lake Park Rules & Regulations" policy was adopted by the MOA Board of Directors at their regular meeting  on February 22, 2020 at which a quorum was present. 


The changes are intended to define the principal hours of use so the park can be open longer, and also to clearly define small non-powered boats as required in the deed restrictions. The bottom line is that Opal Lake Park will be open daily from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm, May 22, 2020 through October 4, 2020. The Board is very excited to offer the membership better access to our beautiful park.

These rules and regulations were approved at the February 22, 2020 board meeting.
