I noticed some Lake Eliza and Flint Lake homes listed recently. How are those areas? Is there much history of flooding? Any problems/issues that are notable in either of those communities?

All I know about these areas is that they are convenient to Valpo, are older communities, and were once mostly summer residences (but most or many are now full-time residences.)

Perhaps the biggest difference is Lake Eliza is not in Valpo - but Flint Lake is.

Lake Eliza has Boone Grove schools - Flint Lake has Valpo schools.

Lake Eliza is semi-isolated - Flint Lake is most definitely part of Valpo propert.

With that difference comes a fairly big price difference - with Flint Lake being on the higher end. And most of the lake front homes on Flint Lake are high end.

As for flooding, not really. But 2007-2008 really brought a whole new level of water issues to many places in NWI that never had water problems ... places that NEVER had ponding issues were flooded out.
