Recreational Use of Shorelines along Public Park Areas

To the Residents of the Summer Village of West Cove:

As we approach the Summer boating season, a number of issues have been brought up with regards to piers and lifts placed in the public park shorelines.  In the past, all the Summer Villages (Alberta Summer Village Association) have asked for a formal policy from the Federal and Provincial Agencies that are responsible for Lakeshores and Beds.  This has not happened to date and, as such, the Summer Village has no jurisdiction over these shorelines.  We ask, however, that those who use these shores to place their equipment in the lake are considerate to the others who use the park as access to the lake for recreational purposes.

If you have the time, please contact your local MLA and voice your concern to this issue, as well, further information may be obtained by contacting Alberta Environment & Sustainable Resource Development (information below).
