Acton Island is located in beautiful Lake Muskoka near the towns of Port Carling and Bala, Ontario. The island has road access from the mainland by way of the Gordon Sinclair bridge and is home to over 300 cottages and full time residences.
Acton Island Association
The Acton Island Association was founded in 2002 by residents, cottagers and property owners from the island as well as properties accessed by way of Acton Island Road. The association was formed for the purpose of:
- Safeguarding the environment and quality of life on Acton Island and the properties accessed by Acton Island Road
- To encourage and facilitate better communication between it's members
- To monitor proposals for development and change
The association monitors town council meetings, MLA and other association meetings for matters potentially affecting its members and also deals with zoning or other matters that arise during the year.
During the winter of 2001/2002 Acton Islanders pulled together and successfully defeated an attempt to change the zoning of part of Acton Island from residential to institutional. It took a lot of work but it was worth it. It became obvious that we needed an ongoing association to ensure that property owners have a say in matters affecting the island, its environment and development.
