Animal Bylaws

We ask animal owners to use good judgement and manage your pets with consideration for your neighbours. To implement more stringent by-law's are complicated and require enforcement, which takes time and resources. Things to be considerate of: barking (day time and night time), keeping animals on leash and out of neighbour's yards, and animal waste pickup.

Revised Bylaws

At our AGM, 2011, there was a motion to allow Executive to use their discretion and have authority to spend or pay bills up to $5000 without the consent of membership through a vote at AGM.

Instruction Manuals

Our community uses an above ground water system that is turned on by volunteers on or about May 15th. Our community maintains a boat launch and dock that is installed on or about May 15th. Both of these services are removed and or serviced prior to winter on or about October 15th. 

Volunteers are relied on for the services required to service these systems. We have enclosed information on these and other systems in this page. Our community thrives on volunteerism and getting these jobs done. We welcome assistance and individuals willing to get involved. Please ask someone on the executive how to be better involved if your interested.
