District of Muskoka, merging of municipalities - a review from GBA

The Provincial Government  would like to merge municipalities in the district including the Township of Georgian Bay into one municipality to achieve greater efficiency & effectiveness.

Issue: For coastal GB is that with this type of merger, we would potentially lose control over planning regulations, planning management & enforcement.

Suggestion: Encourage our members to submit their comments by May 21st.

Caretaker Site Planning Project Update -- Next Steps

Next steps for the Caretaker's Site

The Task Force has reported on the ideas and opinions generated from the summer's focus groups. (See Mad Club website). Now it's time to explore these ideas in greater depth and greater numbers. Please encourage and support as many people of all ages who use your site to fill out our survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SZPPVRPWe'll ask about each one's preferred community activities and potential uses they might make, or not make, of the site. The survey Introduction on-line gives more background  or you can skip right to the questions. We will use these results to inform the spring and summer work of the Task Force. The survey will be live until the end of day Jan 15, 2019.

It's fast, it's easy, it's thorough! Please take about 10 minutes and help the Caretaker's Site Task Force.

We really appreciate all the input we are receiving. It's very helpful.
