Fish Netting Results in Waseosa

In August, the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry (MNRF) conducted fish-netting tests in Waseosa. Their report is not expected to be available until mid-winter, however the MNRF has given us a brief summary of their results.

An updated and more precise depth map was created for the lake, and temperature and oxygen profiles were collected to compare to historic data and provide context for the netting results.

UPDATE: Waseosa severance appeal outcome (Bradley)

On October 15, 2014, the Huntsville Committee of Adjustment and Planning Advisory Committee reviewed a proposal to subdivide an existing waterfront lot into two. As we have noted previously, the LWRA opposed the proposal, because there is insufficient frontage to create two lots, according to Huntsville's Official Plan and Zoning By-law. The committees supported our position and defeated the proposal.

844 North Waseosa Lake Road (Wright/Jager)

To: LWRA members

 

As you may know, the LWRA appeared, last month, at a Huntsville Committee of Adjustment hearing to oppose a plan to redevelop 844 North Waseosa Lake Road (owned by Wright & Jager).  The Board had looked very closely at this application and found a number of serious problems with it. The Committee of Adjustment accepted misleading information and erroneous conclusions in approving it.

 

pieper 2009 application

Sybil Pieper is trying again. She has filed a new application to subdivide her property. This latest attempt is similar to the last in that she wants to create 3 new lots, but this time she wants to make the lots smaller! We have examined the application (attached as a PDF file to the bottom of this notice) and can only surmise that, if successful, this application leaves enough retained lands to create even more lots in the future. There will be a public meeting to consider her application on February 17th at 9:00 am in Council Chambers.
