Lake Management Plan - Safety

The City is embarking on the development of a Lake Management Plan to detail how we can keep Chestermere Lake in great condition for everyone to enjoy.

The plan will include a description of the vision for the Lake, especially in terms of recreational safety and ensuring long term environmental sustainability. The development of this plan will take place from 2018 -2020 (approximately).

Phase 1: Safety

Numerous homes with lakefront access, the narrow geography of the lake, shallow shoreline conditions, and a large number of users increases the potential for conflicts and accidents.

While there have been few incidents on the lake so far, we want to ensure it remains a safe recreational space for all.

As part of the first phase of the safety plan we will be conducting in-person and online public open houses to collect data about experiences on the Lake.

In some cases, the implementation of future restrictions may be considered to ensure for the safety and comfort of all lake users. As such, we invite all lake users to actively participate in this process and be heard.

How to Participate:

  • Register (using the link in the top right) so you can participate in all the opportunities.
  • Take the survey below in the 'Survey' tab to let us know how you use the lake (always open).
  • Leave a question below in the 'Q&A' tab (always open).
  • Participate in the mapping activity (in the 'Places' tab) which is always available.
  • Join the live forum discussion (in the 'Forum' tab) on December 12 from 7:00-8:30. If you can't make it, you can still add comments after on the forum site until December 14 but there will not be live facilitation.
  • Join one of the in person open houses (dates and details to the right).
