Our action plan for this year :

  1. Continue our efforts in the promotion of the new “Montée Jean-Marc” road for our members in Newton Bay.
  2. Intensify our efforts to improve the tranquility for our members at the boat launch which is managed by the Air-Eau-Bois Outdoor Base in Bowman.
  3. Communicate with those who manage the water level of our lake to extend the stable period from May to October.
  4. Find a compromise, which is respectful of the surrounding environment, at the new boat launch on GPB.
  5. Increase our community activities.
  6. Improve our network of buoys.

Resolution that has been adopted and included in our rules:

“Representation by sector:

Given the size of our lake Poisson Blanc, it is important that all owners be represented. To facilitate this representation, each area, if possible, will be represented by a member in the Board of Directors. This representative receives the name of vice-president and is responsible of the interests of the members of his sector. “

NEWS SCOOP FOR OUR MEMBERS

For our members of the BOWMAN AND BAY NEWTON sectors:

Our detailed action plan will be presented next month.

In the meantime, we must congratulate the municipalities of Denholm for improving signage.
on Poisson Blanc Road towards Bowman:

 

 

Installation of this sign, on Poisson Blanc Road.

This one was bought jointly
with the Base de plein-air Air Eau Bois and the Association.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Installation by the municipality of Denholm
of this sign indicating the direction towards the municipality of Lac Sainte Marie.

 

 

 

 

 

 

At the intersection of the Trans Outaouais and Chemin de la Solitude
and also in this photo:

Installation by the municipality of Lac Sainte Marie

 

 

 

 

Notice the improvements on the TransOutaouais?? Thank you DENHOLM!

We would like to thank the municipality of Bowman for installing a new recycling bin and a new multi-opening waste container for the users of the boat launch and residents.

Finally, a guessing game …

To improve the peace of mind of residents of the Bowman descent area.

Decide which panel was installed by the “Base de plein-air Air Eau Bois” ?? The one on the right or the one on the left?

 

 

 

 

 

As an Association, we are very disappointed with the approach of the management of the “Base de plein-air Air Eau Bois” has chosen to respond to our suggestions.

For our members of the Lake Newton area:

THANK YOU to the Municipality of Lac Sainte Marie

for the installation of two safety signs and for speed reduction on the road.
