Unfortunately, the news regarding the development at the Legacy property is not good. Legacy filed an appeal with the LPAT (formerly the OMB) challenging the failure of the District to approve a condo development on the previous Lakeside Lodge property (43 residences with up to 6 bedrooms each, and 9 docks with capacity from 38 to 53 powerboats). The hearing in late February was very unsatisfactory: it lasted only four hours, third-party witnesses were not allowed to testify, and there was no provision for cross-examination. We received the LPAT decision in March confirming that they won their appeal.
We have time to consider our options, as the deadlines to respond have been extended indefinitely because of the COVID 19 outbreak. We will need your help to stop this development from setting a precedent for all of the Muskoka lakes.
Stay tuned—there’s more to come. Check the "Stop Legacy" page on the Save Muskoka website for the latest information on what we're doing to stop this unsustainable development.
