EBlast Post House Update
As most know from previous EBlasts and other media sources, The Post House made application for rezoning. Your LKO Board of Directors became involved for the sole purpose of ensuring the health of our lake. In an appeal to the Ontario Land Tribunal, the application was approved in April. The Board is satisfied that the process went through the proper channels and we look forward to working with The Post House and all other businesses to ensure compliance and the continued health of our lake.
