The Committee expects to release, for public consideration and submissions, a draft Reserve Management Plan before Christmas.

The Reserve Management Plan will address the long term vision of the use, enjoyment and protection of the lakes;
It will also address the appropriateness of continued use of the lakes by powered craft – including safety and environmental issues; and
