Summer Village Mission
Summer Villages are sustainable municipalities that are a well respected, recognized level of government and stewards of our lake and river environments.
Summer Village Vision
Through ADVOCACY, COMMUNICATION, and EDUCATION, the ASVA empowers summer villages, like Lakeview, to achieve strong and effective local government.
Summer Village Goals
