Recreation Lake Safety Management Plan - Draft Lake Use Bylaw

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

In 2018-2019 the City embarked on the development of a Recreation Lake Safety Management Plan to detail how the City can help to improve safety on Chestermere Lake for all users.

In 2019 the Recreation Lake Safety Management Plan was completed and approved by Council. Based on the recommendations made in the Plan, pilot safety initiatives were successfully implemented during the 2019 spring/summer season. The initiatives included an electronic boat launch permit system, a lake safety education program and a safety and speed limit buoys system.

To find out more about these initiatives please visit: www.chestermere.ca/boats

Draft Lake Use Bylaw

The next step in implementing the recommendations made in the Recreation Lake Safety Plan was to develop a bylaw that would address lake safety management. Administration has worked hard to incorporate the feedback collected from the public through the development of the Recreation Lake Safety Plan as well as consultation from RCMP, Municipal Enforcement, Fire Services, WID and Transport Canada in the Draft Lake Use Bylaw.

Now we are asking for your feedback on the draft bylaw to ensure it will support a safer experience on the Lake. Your input will be important to adjusting the bylaw to make sure it serves lake users while also ensuring the City has the appropriate level of control over activities to ensure public safety on the Lake all year round.

Join the conversation in the forum tabs on this page. Each section of the bylaw has been separated into its own forum (14 sections in total). There you can read the bylaw section and provide comments, questions and general feedback. To read the full bylaw, click the icon below.

The forums will be open on Nov. 20th and will close on Dec. 11th, 2020.

We look forward to hearing from you!
