LADA update… projects continue
LADA has a number of large projects underway, including the senior housing committee & trail committee. The senior housing committee is seeking new active members to see this project through to fruition. The trail committee has accomplished many amazing things this summer, including building and upgrading trail and building many new bridges along the route, a huge feat for a small group! A great way to support the trail committee is to go out and experience the trails for yourself. Watch for events and workshops and please let us know if you would like to become involved in adding signage, benches and rest stops to the new trail network in the future. If you are on Facebook you can watch for updates on the Lake Ainslie Development Association page.
