Kawartha Highlands Signature Site Park Management Plan held on this site    Executive Summary

Township of Galway-Cavendish and Harvey POLICE SERVICES BOARD AGENDA November 18, 2006 KHSSP Beaver Lake Parking Concerns - -  this details the agreements and participants to the interm parking lot.

The plan is at http://www.ontarioparks.com/english/kawa.html
Postings are at  http://www.ebr.gov.on.ca/ERS-WEB-External/

http://www.ontarioparks.com/English/planning_pdf/kawa/kawa-ESR-2008.pdf the approved access road study note this study is identical in its pagination and sepup to the original document

the Appendix section  B  to the above holds the comments from the public.
There are 8 pages of single line comments against the park, almost all from the western side, concerning the Beaver Lake road these comments are not located on the index and are about 2/3rds of the way through the document  We have extracted them and numbered the pages (onto this site). the reader should note these are Ms Walls comments of the meeting and information she received, not an independent recording. There was no secretary or recording device.
Ms. Wall answers 11 concerns - they have also been extracted (
To this site). 4 of the 11 comments detail road improvements to come  which we are now told will not happen.  2 detail parking lots  garbage handling, and washroom facilities. One comment is with regard to the Beaver lake road parking facility that is "within the existing right -of -way and does not encroach on anyone private property" neither statement is correct. One section details Beaver Lake road improvements - -not going to happen.
In summary none of the comments were incorporated into the report itself that we can see.

Conclusion,  everything we as public said,  and all that effort, is blown away in 3 error filled pages.

Peter Chown writes to the minister MNR. I think he is pleased with the AMP  - SGKH has not yet met with the membership.
