The County of Haliburton is developing a Shoreline Preservation By-law.
Our lakes, rivers and associated natural environmental features support Haliburton's way of life and our stewardship is central to the creation of a Shoreline Preservation By-law. Building on the current policies and by-laws, the County may:
Healthy, natural shorelines on lakes and rivers protect aquatic communities, fish habitat, source water and mitigates flooding.
We encourage all Horseshoe Lake Property Owners to be learn more about this By-law. In our Keeping in Touch dated January 23rd, (see below) I indicated that the Haliburton County Council would be meeting to discuss the public consultation process for the draft Shoreline Preservation Bylaw. Council met on January 27th and have decided to put the public consultation process on hold and are moving forward with an RFP to hire an independent consultant to further the process. We will post further updates on our website as they become available.
