In the previous news post, I shared a letter sent to the Municipality of Wentworth. It explains the Lake Louisa Property Owners Association’s concerns and objections to the Summary Report on Wentworth residents responses to the WITRI concept prepared by Ryan Affaires Publique. There is an issue with the sentence in bold:
The two obvious omissions refer to the LLPOA/APLL and the Dunany Community Association (DCA), and these community organizations represent the views of the largest Wentworth community groups, as well as the views of the majority of Wentworth community. These organizations have conservatively held over 100 meetings in 2019, and consistently communicated opposition to golf and the large scale development envisioned by WITRD for zone RU6.
The wording should have been more clear. I did not intend to create the impression that the LLPOA has had more than 100 meetings with the Dunany Community Association on this topic. What I meant is that the directors and the executive of the LLPOA have had over 100 meetings on various aspects of this topic since February 24th, 2019. In addition to the AGM and other large meetings at the town hall, these include smaller meetings and conference calls with:
a) other community organizations (of which the DCA has been one), b) our lawyers, c) meetings with councilors and administrators in Wentworth, d) meetings with concerned members of our community, e) the WITRI Opposition executive team have meetings most weekends, and several conference call meetings per week.
There have been two meetings of the DCA in which members of the LLPOA were present. There have been information meetings of the LLPOA which some members of the DCA have attended. These are the only ones I know about where members of the two groups have been present together.
I apologize for any misunderstanding my letter may have caused. Keeping the lines of communication open between the two groups is very important.
