The Informal Survey voting reveals a clear preference

Thank you to everyone who took the time to vote. The informal survey revealed a clear preference to using the apostrophe “s”. We will forward these results to Councillor Phil Bannon so that hopefully our new signs will read “Community of Musselman’s Lake”. See Letter to Phil Bannon below.

Copy of letter from Rick Wigmore to Councillor Phil Bannon

Good Morning Councillor Bannon,

As you are aware the Musselman’s Lake Residents Association has been polling the community to find out whether the residents prefer our community to be known as Musselman’s Lake or Musselman Lake.

We conducted the poll both on-line for those with computers and by mail to capture those residents without a computer. 171 Residents participated in the poll (152 on-line and 19 by mail). The results were overwhelmingly in favour of calling our Community “Musselman’s Lake” with 138 Residents (81%) preferring “Musselman’s Lake” and 33 Residents (19%) preferring “Musselman Lake”.

We would appreciate if you can let the Mayor and Council know that the residents have decided that the community going forward should be known as Musselman’s Lake. The Residents have also expressed that they would like this name to appear on the beautiful blue community signs that the town has been erecting throughout Whitchurch-Stouffville at the entrance to each community. We would also appreciate it if you could let us know a timeline for erecting these new signs at Musselman’s Lake. We are also happy that these signs will finally reflect the same name as the Ministry of Transport has had on their signs for years and there will be consistency and one name “Musselman’s Lake”.

Thank-you for awaiting a community decision before proceeding with the new signs.

Best Regards,
Rick Wigmore

Musselman’s Lake Residents Association

Again, thank you to everyone who participated in this Informal Survey. We will keep you informed on any updates on the status of our new signs.
