Cottage Succession Seminar - Registration is Required
Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (705) 749-3622 to register for your space at the Cottage Succession Event on Crane Lake.
It's not lack of interest, capital gains tax, or other financial pressures that result in most family cottages going up for sale, it's a consequence of friction within the family that arises from sharing ownership and usage.
Join us after the business portion of the AGM for a presentation by Peter Lillico, a lawyer specializing in estate planning who will be speaking on Cottage Succession. Peter has been affiliated with FOCA for many years and his presentations always receive terrific reviews. We are fortunate to have him joining us!
This event is FREE to FOCA members, including all members of the Crane Lake Association and Blackstone Lake Cottagers Association. $10 at the door for non-members.
The Annual Crane Lake Golf Tournament returns on August 27th, 2016.
Organized each year by local residents, this tournament has a reputation for being a great day on the course!
This year, the cost will be $85 per player, which includes Golf, Dinner and a Bus.

Public Hearing July 15 at 2pm - Crane Lake Resort
Recently, the Township of the Archipelago forwarded a proposal regarding potential changes to the Crane Lake Resort property. We have recently learned that changes have been made to the original proposal following concerns already expressed by several property owners on Crane Lake and members of the CLA Board.
As a follow-up to the original TOA mailing, on June 6th, Ian Mead (Township of the Archipelago Counsellor) emailed all residents on Crane and Blackstone Lakes currently on his email distribution list. For those who have not yet received the original package, we encourage you to visit: http://www.thearchipelago.on.ca/index.php/departments/planning/condo
Public Hearing - Crane Lake Resort Proposal
It is important to recognize that the revised proposal will be presented at the Public Hearing on July 15th, 2016 at Crane Lake Resort, 2PM. This meeting is obviously open to everyone and provides an excellent opportunity to learn about the current proposal and voice any concerns or ask any questions.
In our communication with the TOA, we have learned that early feedback from local property owners has brought light to a serious concern regarding access to docks and parking. It is our understanding that recent negotiations have been successful between the TOA and Crane Lake Resort, who have now come to an agreement that will reduce the potential loss of docking and parking to water access property owners. We are not yet privy to these recent changes to the proposal and there is still more than a week until the Hearing, so more change is possible yet. But we are confident that the changes have been made to the best interests of the Crane Lake community.
The importance of the continued presence of the Marina to our lake community is clear. This proposed severance will provide Mike's Crane Lake Marina Limited with the opportunity to continue operations and continue to service our community.
Regardless of recent changes to the proposal, the overall change in the use of the Resort property is significant and the proceedings must be watched closely. True to our mandate, the CLA will be communicating with the TOA on behalf of members, specifically monitoring potential impact to our environment, water quality, and the values identified by the community in our recent Lake Plan.
CLA Annual General Meeting
We are looking forward to seeing everyone at the Crane Lake Association Annual General Meeting this Saturday, July 9th, 2016, where this will be a topic of discussion in advance of the Public Hearing. Our AGM is open to the entire Crane Lake community and we hope all will attend.
The Crane Lake Association is closely monitoring the Resort application and will be in attendance at the Public Hearing on July 15th. This Hearing will provide us with the recent changes to the plans and, we are told, the TOA planners will listen to concerns, if any, and are still able revise the proposal again as may be necessary. While many public hearings may not allow much time for a response, we are told that due to the importance of this particular topic, the TOA will allow time for property owners and interested parties to respond in writing or by phone after the meeting.
Following the Public Hearing, the Crane Lake Association will be in a far better position to understand, evaluate and, if necessary, respond to the TOA and other parties on behalf of our members. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us email@example.com.
