Our VISION for the future of our lakes is..."A place where water quality, wildlife habitat, natural beauty, recreational opportunities, and peace and tranquility are maintained and improved for present and future generations to enjoy."
We will protect the natural, social & historic character of Bella and Rebecca Lakes, through a balanced approach in education, communications & voluntary compliance over legislative & regulatory constraint, within our targets:
Strive to rehabilitate the water quality of both Bella and Rebecca Lakes to pristine levels.
Fish & Wildlife
Support a sustainable fish population including optimal habitat for naturally reproducing lake trout and small mouth bass, and maintain stability in the biodiversity of wildlife species and their habitats.
The protection and rehabilitation of the shoreline (littoral, riparian and upland areas) should be promoted to increase the amount of natural shoreline.
Trees & Vistas
The natural vista should be maintained. Buildings and structures should have a minimal impact on shoreline, and all shoreline structures other than docks are to be discouraged.
A cooperative working relationship has to be fostered between all community members to ensure that new development respects the environment and character of the lakes, as well as maintains property values.
The historical, cultural, natural and recreational character of the lake is to be recognized, protected and restored, where appropriate. Future development must complement and be compatible with the historical, cultural and natural character of the lakes.
A range of social and recreational activities should be promoted that are consistent with the natural character of the lakes, preserve the health and ambiance of the lakes and foster a sense of community.
