5. Please tell us about any other factors that are important to you that you would like to comment on? 1. Clear Lake has never been a quiet lake but that is part of its draw. It is a great lake for long time residents and knowing everyone around the lake. 2. Less speed boat traffic!! 3. Shoreline being destroyed by wakeboarding boats. Need more controls. 4. Mutual respect regarding neighbours is very important. A sense of warmth in our community. Community bonds on the lake bring families together. Maintaining property values both as investments and as permanent homes. A depreciation of lake value property can virtually wipe out a home, a business and a lake community. 5. Too many boats and too big for this lake As we are on a point we have been in danger swimming in front of our cottage with the speed boats. 6. Consideration of wildlife use of the water BEFORE our own (ie. polluting the only natural habitat available to a variety of species with recreational use as a form of 'relaxation' on the weekends) 7. Water and shoreline protected. 8. Maintaining shorelines without further deterioration. Thanks for a TON of rich input 38. I enjoy the quiet times of canoeing and fishing both, ice fish winter and canoeing spring,both here and in the park--also enjoy the busy period thru July August-the boating and sport related activities of skiing with freinds on the ski coarse,barefooting and wakeboard--important to maintain or improve water quality-motor tech has improved in both outboard motor and skidoos -this should translate into less pollutants being fed into our lake--this also applies to septic systems-possible monitoring to improve quaity of new and existing systems to ensure 39. 1) Shoreline erosion due to boat wakes 2) Maintenance of public boat launch
Lots of passion about boat traffic: wakes, safety, noise, common courtesy Concerns about the environment Concerns about peace and quiet (music playing from docks and boats) Recognition that we are a busy, fun lake Q5. Other Comments Summary
Q6. Best Memories Summary Bonfires Dinners with family Skiing and tubing with the kids Paddling and kayaking Fishing Quiet Mornings and Evenings Swimming at the Dock Hearing the Loons
