In 2014 the SHPOA committee tackled
a number of projects. On the 2015 membership renewal form, we conducted
an informal survey asking members to rate their satisfaction with these
projects. The survey was divided into 6 categories (ditch drainage,
road repairs, signs, bulletin board, clean enviro presentations, social events)
were 38 replies to the survey and It should be noted that not all forms had
comments on the 6 categories. For those that did reply the results are as
draining; 61% approval rating
repairs; 73% approval rating
80% approval rating
board; 84% approval rating
enviro presentation; 78% approval rating
events; 80% approval rating
were some additional comments which ranged from some drainage issues to the
wellness centre and to the beavers. Some of these issues will be discussed at a
meeting with the RM as some of the projects are on going.
Report…In 2015 the RM in
consultation with the Silver Harbour Property Owners Association began a major
effort to alleviate the drainage issues that have been neglected over the past
many years. With new properties and the installation of new culverts,
vegetation growth in the ditches and culverts, there has been a gradual buildup
of barriers that have prevented natural water flow. Based on feedback from the
general population through the Annual General Meeting, and a review and
inspection of the issues submitted, a survey was conducted on the entire Silver
Harbour area. The result was a dredging assault on the community ditches. The
water flow has been improved. There are a few areas yet to be completed but it
is hoped that we can address these remaining issues this year.
The bulletin board with an area map has been installed and is ready for
community use. We encourage all members of the community to post their notices
and messages. An informal monitoring system will be in place to attempt to keep
the bulletin board current.
There are a few signage issues that will be addressed in the coming
Wayne Harden, previously vice president, has moved to assume the
Treasurer duties in the wake of the passing of Don Fast. We are currently
looking for a volunteer to replace Wayne as vice president.

Dog Owners Please Help ;
on Earth Day, two of our members took it upon themselves to help clean up the
area. It seems that some people with four legged friends neglected to
dispose of their doggie doo in a proper manner. Jim and Diane Swaile
picked up 42 little blue bags of poo along Einerson and
Silver Creek. We appreciate that you took the time to pick your
doggie poo; we would really appreciate if you threw it in
the garbage rather than in the bush. Please also remember that a
leash is required on the roads and dogs are not allowed on the beach.
Help keep your Silver Harbour clean!
