Charlo Coastline Association

“Hello from the Charlo Coastline Association (CCA).

It is the time of year once again, where we will be holding another membership drive.  We thank those who have already renewed for 2017-18.  Our President Willy Blomquist, or myself (Penny Malcolm-Theriault, Treasurer) will be contacting members from our 2016-17 group requesting their continued support via membership renewal.

Over the coming weeks and months, the CCA’s intent is to carry out another pass along the shoreline.  LCL’s Luc Levesque will again be seen slowly working his way along the Bay, with his excavator, to pick up and return rocks that have crept out from the bank.

Thank you to all our current members who made all this effort possible.  Through you, we have begun preserving an important component of both Charlo’s, and the Bay of Chaleur’s present and future.

The Vice-President position on the CCA has become vacant.  Thank you to Jean-Marie Pelletier for his help and contributions to this worthy cause.  Anyone interested in becoming a volunteer would be greatly appreciated.  Contact us, through the village office at 684-7850.  Thank you from your Committee, and we look forward in continuing our efforts in 2017-18.”

Planning Division

With the arrival of spring, many of us have started planning this year’s renovation or construction projects. Whether the installation or renovation of a deck, a fence, a swimming pool or the construction of a new home, there are standards applicable to your project that will help ensure the health and safety of the users, and ensure an improved or maintained living standard for yourselves (as property owners) and of your neighborhood. These standards are implemented and ensured through the building and development permit process. Is a permit required for your project?

The Restigouche Regional Service Commission Planning Division, in partnership with the Village of Charlo, oversees the implementation of land use planning services including, among others, building permitting and inspection. If you are planning a project, or if you have any questions relative to your proposal, we encourage you to contact a representative of the Restigouche RSC Planning Division. It will be their pleasure to work with you on the planning and development of your property.
