Patrick Crammond has installed an honour system payment box at the marina and that he is working on an application form for casual moorage.

Bob asked that the Board refine requirements and procedures and suggested that Gavin would be available to attend a future MLPOS meeting, perhaps in September.

Marina

Glenn reported that he still in contact with the piling company, but that no estimate has been provided as yet.

Noting that the late Bill Baird had done a lot of work over the years at the marina, Glenn advised that the marina team will install new floats to replace the old ones at the dock adjacent to Louise Baird’s home.

The marina team will act on the issue of derelict boats to require compliance with the marina policies.

Glenn noted that some marina users are sub-leasing or assigning people to take their vacated marina slips, contrary to marina policies. He will be in touch with those individuals; and with people who are simply pulling into empty slips without contacting the marina team.

Ian Syme, Art Curtis and Dave Reed reported on progress related to the 2018 marina work parties including:

Widening and improved stabilization of C dock;

Improvements to A dock;

That the marina shed has been refloated and the fish cleaning station rebuilt;

Upcoming installation of additional non-slip mini mesh by the ambulance dock;

Upcoming water line installation;

On-going installation of new or additional signs.

Glenn advised that there will be a volunteer appreciation dinner, likely in late June.

Recreation / Tennis Report

Mike Wiley stated that resurfacing of the tennis courts is imminent. He will also investigate installation of non-slip mini mesh in problem areas of the tennis courts.

Director-at-Large

Dave advised that the Magic Lake Estates Water and Sewer Committee has recommended to the Capital Regional District that the sewer system upgrades be carried out incrementally in order to spread out the costs.

Dave advised that the Water and Sewer committee has formally objected to an amendment to the North Pender Island Land Use Bylaw that would see secondary suites allowed. The basis for the objection is related to infrastructure capacity, specifically the Magic Lake sewer system.

Dave suggested that the Board consider what projects might be appropriate to be undertaken, such as playground improvements, with a view to asking for a grant-in-aid from the CRD. He noted that Area Director Dave Howe has the ability to fund projects benefitting the community.

Seconded by Mike Wiley
