The primary mandate of the Restoration Group is the full recovery of the lake to its former state of nature prior to the 1890s. This will not be easy to accomplish, however, this city has made great progress in restoring the natural vegetation that once covered our hills and was almost completely destroyed therefore we hope the same can be achieved with our water resources.
Our Group, together with all three levels of government has done much to make this area attractive to local residents and visitors. Much remains to be done to improve the quality of the water and to maintain our waterfront and hilltop parks, plus the other recreational facilities that so many enjoy.
Development of the Minnow Lake Place Site (the former St. Jean School) continues based on original plans.
