Proposed Kite Ban Lagoon City

Postby irwe » Tue Nov 06, 2018 2:27 pm

If you are a Kiter at Lagoon City ON please contact me as to how to best approach the Town Council to discuss the proposed Kiteboarding ban for Lagoon City Beach.

One of my patients is on Town Council and he knows I am an avid Kiteboarder.

If you are not proactive we will loose this popular site.

I was successful creating a Kite beach with another Town Council about 15 km away which has had zero kiteboarding complaints in the last 5 years.

Regards,
Ian

What is the reasoning for the proposed ban? Injures, wildlife, conflict with other user groups ?

If I was to speculate....
I am not sure what the problem is as I do not kite there but I know there are two beaches one on either side of the channel that have "Private Beach Access" this means that residence of the area are allowed to use the beach... this will likely be a similar arrangement to the beach where I live, such that the beach was purchased by an association and in return for no property taxes the association allows all residence of the local municipality to use the beach... my guess is that there is a stream of kiters coming from the Greater Toronto Area and using the beach as if it was public, likely using up all the parking spots or just parking illegally, there will likely be no public washrooms so there will be some public urination, and generally the locals don't like non locals taking up the space.

Access 1 (if memory serves me correctly there are overhead wires here to keep the geese and seagulls off the beach)

Hi Lagoon Kiters

As a volunteer OKA rep of many years in Lagoon area I attended Monday's meeting with Ramara council regarding Parks use bylaw 8.2 proposed changes

Presentation was well received and bylaw 8.2 proposed changes have been held off for further review in the spring...specifily Steps launch issues and swim only proposal that would effect kiting

Will work with council this spring to establish continued access for all

I would like to thank all the local kiters for there ongoing support of signage @ Main Lagoon Beach ....self management goes a long way with council and beach goers alike.....LETS ALL WORK TOGETHER TO KEEP OUR BEACHES OPEN😎

Sooooo.......Van is almost packed and ready for another winter in Los Barriles Baja......SEE ALL IN THE SPRING

So page 7 of 22 says it all, one person is using the "public beach" as a school training area which pissed off a local resident...
