Lake Court Center
The Lake Court Center (LCC) building is owned and managed by the Lost Lake RCD for the use of the property owners within its taxing district. Located alongside the lake at 404 Lake Court, it was built with the aid of the local property owner's association. The building not only houses the RCD's office and the Lost Lake community library, but also provides meeting and event space for community clubs and groups, pancake breakfasts, blood drives, and more. The LCC complex also includes a tennis court, a basketball hoop, fishing dock, shoreline fishing, sand volleyball court, a playground, bike racks, a large grassy area for other recreation opportunities, and parking for approximately 40 vehicles.
Additionally, the LCC is also available for rent for private functions such as birthday and anniversary celebrations, bridal and baby showers, wedding receptions, family holiday gatherings, etc. The LCC has an occupancy rating of 335 standing room, or 157 seated with tables and chairs. The building is fully heated and air conditioned and includes a large kitchen with appliances, WiFi, a piano, television, table games, restrooms, a pop machine, and great views of the lake.

Lake Court Center (LCC) Rental Forms / Documents
Illinois Statue Governing Lake Court Center Rental:
"If the board determines to operate any such recreational facilities, it shall establish for the revenue-production facilities rates and charges which at least defray all fixed maintenance and operating expenses."
The RCD must use income from the rentals to defray the fixed costs of running the facility. It costs approximately $15,000 each year just to pay the bills to maintain the Lake Court Center. If rental income falls short of this amount, the taxpayer makes up the difference. It is our goal to substantially meet or exceed the $15,000 expense figure each year. Please consider this facility first when planning a social event, celebration, club gathering or other event/meeting. Without your support, the burden on the tax payers will be such that the RCD will not be able to justify the building's use.
