Looking to the future

Our major objective is to develop and implement a lake management plan to identify and protect natural, physical and social values that contribute to the "quality of life" on Charleston Lake. This plan has been included in the Official Plan for our Townships. The purpose of the lake plan is to recognize and protect the unique character of Charleston Lake and to ensure its long-term health and character for present and future generations.
