July 11, 2017 – Kawartha Conservation staff will hold an open house on the Four Mile Lake Management Plan to present key findings and draft recommendations at the Burnt River Community Centre on Saturday, July 29.
The two-hour open house, from 10 a.m. to 12 noon, will provide an opportunity for staff to discuss feedback received from the community on the second draft of the plan, as well as to receive public input on the content of the draft plan.
“The open house on July 29 will be the culmination of public input and consultation and represent the feedback we have received during the past year,” explained Aquatic Biologist Brett Tregunno. “We have heard from lake residents and incorporated a lot of their recommendations and feedback.
“This is a plan for the long-term health and sustainability of Four Mile Lake,” Mr. Tregunno continued. “This plan is unequivocally for the lake residents and in consultation with them.”
Now in its second draft, the open house will be the final round of public consultation before staff finalize the plan and present to the Kawartha Conservation Board of Directors later this year for approval.
“We are looking forward to sharing this draft and the recommendations we have included during our open house on July 29,” said Mr. Tregunno. “We welcome and look forward to feedback on the revised draft at the open house and to presenting a final Four Mile Lake plan which we can all support and implement to our Board of Directors later this year.”
The open house will be held at the Burnt River Community Centre on Saturday, July 29 from 10 a.m. to 12 noon. Everyone is welcome.
