Lion’s Head Campground
Mayor McIver advised that a public meeting was taking place in regards to the Fees and Charges By-law. Mr. Gerry Gregory expressed some concern with the use and availability of the pond at the Lion’s Head Campground. He indicated that the pond area was available to the public in the past and is no longer for public use due to siting of trailers in the park layout. He noted that, for the loss in revenue of two (2) trailer sites, the public could have access to the pond area year-round.
Mr. Gregory stated that, with the influx in visitors to the area, the pond area would be a great asset as it provides shade and space for visitors to rest. He recommended renting the pond area to visiting groups for the day. Mr. Gregory emphasized the importance of rethinking the use of the area and how greater opportunity can be achieved.
Mr. Cameron informed Council that, when reviewing the Fees and Charges By-law, staff compare fees to other municipalities in Grey and Bruce Counties.
Council noted that they will review the campground rates in 2020 for the Fees and Charges By-law and further that a stop at the campground during the Road Tour (Special Council Meeting) on June 3, 2019 be scheduled. Mr. Gregory asked that the two trailer sites in question not be rented until Council has carried out a site inspection.
Mr. Gregory recited seasonal trailer site rates for several local campgrounds indicating that the Lion’s Head Campground is undercutting businesses in the private sector by charging less than other campgrounds with waterfront sites.
With no further public comment, Mayor McIver closed the public meeting.
