Crystal Beach Lakeview
Our community was originally developed in the 1960s in the City of Nepean. Now part of Ottawa, it is one of the city’s most desirable locations for new families.
The Crystal Beach Lakeview Community Association (CBLCA) is a volunteer organization elected by the community. The Association's objectives are to promote and protect the interests and quality of life of the residents of the Crystal Beach Lakeview community, in accordance with the constitution [link]:
- to act as a community spokesperson and advocate in promoting and protecting the interests of the community;
- to monitor current or proposed legislation and government policies and practices that affect or may affect the community;
- to inform community residents of any matters that may have an impact on the interests and quality of life of the community;
- to organize activities that foster a sense of community;
- to promote opportunities for citizen engagement with City of Ottawa initiatives and planning processes;
- to encourage the participation of local businesses, residents, and organizations, in community activities; and
- to establish mechanisms to ensure inclusiveness and to encourage the participation of residents in the affairs of their community.
The community is divided into 5 zones (as seen in above map), each with its own representative. Zone Reps keep their finger on the pulse of their zone.
The association is comprised of an elected executive including the Zone Reps, plus several Committees established to address the various issues that affect the community. Please feel free to contact your Zone Rep or other members of the executive with any issues or concerns.
