The Dwight Community Centre was the site of an invitational workshop on the future of Langmaid’s Island on the afternoon of Tuesday October 24th, 2017. About 20 invitees gathered to hear Langmaid’s Island’s new owners outline their intention of seeking approval to subdivide the island into cottage lots (see Appendix A for List of Participants).
The new owners have summer roots in the Lake of Bays area and have enjoyed cottaging there. They plan to keep several lots for themselves and family members and eventually build their own cottages, so they are particularly sensitive to the importance of meeting and talking with members of the community.
The new owners also made it clear they wanted to hear from the workshop group before moving ahead with a formal submission for the cottage lot severance on the island. They also announced that a public open house will be held in December in Lake of Bays where details of a preliminary cottage lot plan will be available for further discussion and comment.
