Taylor Lake barriers go up with more coming

Port Edward Council brief discusses the success of minor baseball and the Taylor Lake barriers to prevent overnight campers.

Barriers have gone up to curtail camping at the Taylor Lake parking lot.

Trailers and campers will no longer be able to fit into the parking lot at Taylor Lake. The mayor and district councillors discussed that the ministry of transportation has installed restrictive pipe upon entering the Taylor Lake parking area.

“You can go in with your kayak or your vehicle,” Mayor Dave MacDonald said.

In the past, people were using the area to camp out for weeks. There were some health and safety concerns over where they were going to the bathroom.

Barriers are also expected to go up by the Tweedledee and Tweedledum lakes.

North Coast Minor Baseball Association update

The president of the recently formed minor baseball league on the North Coast, Ken Veldman, presented an update to council as the first few games have already begun.

“This couldn’t have happened without the district and I have to give so much credit to your public works group,” Veldman said.

The practices and games are held at the McKeown field in Port Edward, and Veldman said he hasn’t heard anyone complain about having to drive out to the district for their kids to play.

He said the installed benches has created a real sense of community and it may be the single best park on the North Coast.
