Ratepayers and Regulatory Affairs

We all love our beloved cottages, and we all love our pristine Pointe au Baril’s natural setting. Well, like all great love affairs, sometimes these two loves don’t always dovetail naturally!  Enter, the Comprehensive Zoning By-Laws. (CZBL’s). 
The bottom line is we need
  • regulations to keep excessive building and over-development out and
  • our human footprint in keeping with the magic that is Pointe au Baril – a natural and well-managed paradise. 
  • We do not want what has happened further south of us to creep north. 
The rules are fair, the rules are reasonable, and the rules have been rigorously vetted by your PaBIA Regulatory and Ratepayer Committee. Based on the most recent member survey, input has been provided to the Township as they conduct their review of the CZBLs and prepare their updated plan that should have a public hearing later this summer. 
 
PaBIA’s Regulatory and Ratepayer Committee supports the CZBL’s purpose and serves to recommend compliance.
