Notice – Community of Malpeque Bay
Special Meeting - Thursday, November 23, 2017 - Spring Valley Hall

Municipal changes will soon be a reality for residents of Malpeque Bay.

Part of the new requirements includes establishing an office within the community where Building Permits will be issued as well as providing general municipal information, land use and related requirements under an Official Plan. These extra responsibilities will result in an increase in municipal taxes. We will present a general budget at the meeting based on information provided from other municipalities/The Province and Federation of Municipalities.

We are hosting an information session on Thursday, November 23 at 7PM at Spring Valley Hall to discuss building a Malpeque Bay office at Spring Valley. The plan includes establishing a committee of residents along with members of Council to design an addition to Spring Valley Hall.

This meeting is for all residents of Baltic, Darnley, Hamilton, Indian River, Malpeque, Sea View and Spring Valley. Your opinion matters. Please join us.

Refreshments will be served.

The Council for the Community of Malpeque Bay
Purchased an automated simple to operate AED for Keir Memorial Museum from St. John Ambulance. This easy to use AED is designed specifically for the first person responding to a person having a cardiac arrest and allows organizations to help area residents and visitors in such an event.

The unit is easy to operate, safe and requires no medical background in order to use. The defibrillator provides step-by-step instructions via prompts from a calm, confident clear voice.

FLAGS OF REMEMBRANCE

On behalf of the residents of the Community of Malpeque Bay (Baltic, Darnley, Hamilton, Indian River, Malpeque, Sea View and Spring Valley), the Council sponsored a Flag in Remembrance of the Veterans from the community who lost their life fighting for our freedom.

128 Canadian Flags were raised at a recent dedication ceremony in Charlottetown paying tribute to Canadians who lost their lives in military service. Similar ceremonies took place in other Canadian cities.


Flags of Remembrance
Flags of Remembrance Plaque The 128 Flags are in remembrance of the 128,000 Canadian soldiers killed (116,000) or missing in action (12,000) from the Boer War to the present.

The Flags and Plaques will remain in place until November 14. The Community’s Flag and Plaque will be donated to the Keir Memorial Museum.

The flags are a spectacular display of Remembrance and you are encouraged to visit the Charlottetown Event Grounds to see that for yourself.

Pictures here show the plaque dedicated by the community and most of the 128 Flags!

COMMUNITY OF MALPEQUE BAY
SHEDS NEW LIGHT ON
INTERSECTIONS

The Community of Malpeque Bay has recently contracted Maritime Electric to install street lighting in a number of areas within our community.

The areas identified as priority include: Malpeque corner, Penderosa Beach Road, Spring Valley Road and Memory Lane, Rte. 20 and 102 South, Ball field in Spring Valley, and the intersection of Rte 103 and Rte 20.

We have asked the Department of Highways to have a light installed at the corner of Rte. 20 and Rte. 104 since it has been deemed as a busy and dangerous intersection.

Farming, fishing and tourism make up a large part of the local industries.

Malpeque Bay is one of 36 sites in Canada, designated as Wetlands of International Importance (Ramsar Sites). It is a coastal lagoon system protected from the open sea (Gulf of St. Lawrence) by a 25-km long coastal sandspit and dune formation.

The Bay is a nesting site for the globally threatened wader, the "Piping Plover". It is also an important staging area for very large numbers of geese and ducks during spring and autumn migration periods. For more information about Birding on P.E.I. , click here.
