Dear Mayor Whelan,

Re Proposed Development of Fraser Property, Stony Lake

I am writing to you to express my concerns about the proposed development of the Fraser property on Stony Lake.

I am a third generation summertime resident of Stony lake, occupying our family island every summer for 66 years. I look forward to many more years with my children and their families- my grandchildren.

However, I believe the proposed development threatens this cherished experience for me and succeeding generations.

It is well recognized that water quality inherently affects the usage of our lakes. The threat to the wetlands of this property by the proposed development would have an impact on quality of the water which we all depend on for our use and enjoyment of Stony Lake.

Beyond my concerns for the environmental impact, are my concerns for the impact of the increased watercraft usage of the lake. We have already experienced a huge increase in boat traffic with more and larger craft. This is local traffic, not just from the Trent System. Adding many more vessels to the already saturated waterways would be deleterious.

The unique nature of the property and its wetlands make its environmental and possible archaeological importance exceed any possible gain from development. I do not see how or have any belief that the proposed development would do anything but jeopardize the fragile ecosystem which is already stressed to the near “tipping point”.

I thank you in advance for your consideration of my concerns.

Sincerely,
Robin Brooks-Hill, M.D.
