Upon seeing that site preparation was underway, the MLRA executive contacted Geranium Homes for an update regarding the Copperstone development on Lakeshore Road . Geranium Homes immediately addressed our concerns and supplied us this update for area residents.
A resident has reported to us about going through the ice last Saturday while shovelling his rink. Fortunately he just went through up to his waist and with him being a Markham firefighter, his ice survival training helped him out of a bad situation.
Please be aware of constantly changing ice conditions on the Lake even in mid-winter but even more so this time of year.
Many factors affect ice thickness including: type of water, location, the time of year and other environmental factors such as:
The colour of ice may be an indication of its strength.
It has been a process that has taken over seven years to complete but thanks to Councillor Phil Bannon’s vision and perseverance, the Community of Musselman’s Lake is not only getting a community park but, a legacy to be handed down from generation to generation.
The former Wagon Wheel Ranch property/Coultice Estate consists of 150 beautiful acres that is now going to be used for a community park of approximately 5 acres and the remaining environmentally sensitive land will be left almost entirely natural under the management of the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority.
The Town and LSRCA have spectacular plans for this location which will be presented by Town staff in a community meeting (date to be announced) for residents to review. Residents have had input into these plans at previous community meetings held by the Town.
A Big Thank-You!
On behalf of the MLRA, we would like to thank Andrew McNeely and the Town Staff who worked so diligently to put the proposal and deal together. We would also like to thank the Mayor and Council who supported the park plan these many years. Especially we would to like to thank Councillor Phil Bannon, who has worked tirelessly and attended an endless number of meetings in order to get the residents of Musselman’s Lake a community park.
And finally thank you to all the residents who united in support of this amazing project.
“If Phil Bannon can do for Whitchurch-Stouffville as Mayor what he has done for Ward Two as Councillor…Stouffville will benefit immensely”
Dear Whitchurch-Stouffville Resident:
This year’s municipal election is important for all of us!
On October 27 this year, we’ll be electing our new Mayor and council.
Our new Mayor will be leading the management of the $70 million municipal budget and 400 full and part time town employees.
Our new Mayor needs the experience, energy and vision to manage growth, exercise fiscal responsibility, and maintain taxpayers’ trust while staying closely involved in the community and community events. The mayor also needs to be able to work effectively with other levels of government within the region and the province.
I have the “Experience And Energy” to be mayor and I am asking for your help and support to get elected this October.
I have 11 years experience as the councillor for Ward 2 and I have helped bring positive change to Whitchurch-Stouffville, which is now the third-fastest growing municipality in Canada!
I’ve been a full time, energetic and involved member of council, pouring my energy into clearly communicating and actively listening to the residents of Ward 2 through newsletters, community meetings and successful social and fundraising events.
I will be a full time Mayor, working to improve local services and strengthen our local economy while respecting taxpayers’ dollars.
An effective election campaign takes a candidate with energy, ideas, leadership ability and vision. It also takes the commitment of great volunteers to donate their precious time.
I would very much appreciate your support this October, and, if you would like to volunteer in what promises to be an exciting and fun campaign, it would be great to have you as part of Team Bannon!
