In May 2005, over 50 Mitchell Lake residents joined together to plant a visual and sound barrier of 55 trees along Hwy 5 by
teaming with MN_DOT and the City of Eden Prairie.   After the planting we gathered to celebrate, eat and talk.      
Someone said, “Wouldn’t it be great if we could organize like this and clean up the lake.”  
Many said, “Yes!!” ... thus planting the seeds for the formation of a Lake Association!
