Mayor’s Welcome

Greetings, friends, visitors and fellow citizens! In this fast-changing world, more and more entrepreneurs, vacationers and retirees are quickly realizing what the local people have known for generations. North Frontenac’s quality of life, fascinating culture, friendly community spirit and commitment, and economic opportunity are jewels that are quickly making this area a destination of choice. Statistics show that our population and property values are growing quicker than in neighbouring municipalities. Blessed with over two hundred pristine lakes, beautiful forests, rich minerals, an abundance of wildlife, and indisputably “the darkest skies in southern Canada for observing the Milky Way”, we have every opportunity to preserve our rich heritage for future generations and to enhance their opportunities at the same time. Before long our struggles to acquire dial-up and high-speed Internet, cell phone towers and our own radio station will become distant memories just like the earlier efforts to obtain telephone, radio and television. Now the latter are commonplace and we take them for granted. Along with these technologies, however, come legislative responsibilities and moral commitments by everyone to ensure that these advances and our quality of life keep pace with environmental, health and safety standards. Please accept this brochure in that spirit of cooperation. Best wishes to all of you and may you have a happy and healthful future. Mayor Ron Maguire June 2009

Welcome to North Frontenac North Frontenac is in the heart of eastern Ontario’s cottage country. Cottages and campsites dot the shores of the Township’s many clean lakes. Located entirely on the Canadian Shield, the landscape can often be rough and unpredictable, but at the same time provide for scenic backdrops and vistas. The two-lane roads take you through small hamlets and villages, through valleys and forests, around lakes, and over mountains. The spectacular Mazinaw Cliffs overlooking Mazinaw Lake in Bon Echo Provincial Park features over 260 native pictographs that are a huge recreational attraction. Also, the Mazinaw Cliffs are as high as the lake is deep. There is an assortment of residential living options in North Frontenac. People choose to live in the small hamlet areas of the Township, along private roads in the backcountry, or on the shores of the hundreds of water bodies. Also, a large number choose to live in North Frontenac on a seasonal basis, spending weekends and holidays in the Township. The natural beauty of North Frontenac is what most residents love about the area. The active lifestyles of residents, both permanent and seasonal, enjoy a wide variety of outdoor activities. In the summer many people spend their time on the large network of trails, hiking, hunting,

and off-roading with ATVs. But equally as entertaining, and possibly even more popular, is enjoying time in and around the water, partaking in activities like swimming, boating, fishing, water-skiing, tubing, canoeing and kayaking. The winter season is also enjoyed by residents, and significant snow falls blanket the landscape, replacing the scenery of North Frontenac with an alternatively beautiful appearance. Residents commonly enjoy snowmobiling and snowshoeing the large expanse of trails, and continue to fish through the ice, as you’ll see the frozen lakes scattered with the presence of fishing huts.

In all, the vast expanse of natural setting that exists in North Frontenac, with a seemingly endless array of scenery to take in, is equally beautiful, and stunningly unique, during all of the four seasons. Bon Echo Rock, Mazinaw Lake

North Frontenac Quick Facts The Township of North Frontenac is a 1,135.75 km2 (438.5 mi2) municipality home to over 1,900 permanent residents. In addition, there are an estimated 5,000 seasonal residents. The low density of the population (1.7 people per km2) makes for the preservation of an amazing landscape. Also, North Frontenac is beautifully set in the heart of eastern Ontario’s cottage country. For these reasons it one of the best destinations for hikers, bikers, bird watchers, cottagers and retirees in southeastern Ontario.

North Frontenac is lucky to have some of the most southerly exceptional dark skies in Canada. The darkest region in the area, known as the ‘Dark Peninsula’, encompasses 4 Counties, Frontenac, LennoxAddington, Hastings and Renfrew. For millions of people in southern Canada and the north-east US, this is the best view of the night sky and the Milky Way that they will most likely experience.

The Sky Brightness Map shows levels of light present in the night sky. This ranges from Black (no light) to Red (lots of light).

This ‘Dark Peninsula’ has captured the attention of many scientists, who wish to utilize its natural darkness for telescopic surveying. If you are lucky enough to experience this natural phenomenon, then you would be familiar with the fascinating spectacles it presents, like the one in this photo taken of the Milky Way from the top of Mallory Hill.

Economic Development North Frontenac is constantly developing and implementing initiatives that will stimulate the economy of the region. In order to better our Township and improve our global interconnectivity, we must strive to accomplish our goals and seek out new improvements to the way we operate as a community.

Broadband Internet The Township has submitted to the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, an application for the Rural Connections Broadband Program. The application has been identiďŹ ed by the Township as a top priority for our municipality. Broadband access and education programs will improve and have a very positive impact on economic and community life for many residents and businesses in our area. There is a strong need for Broadband services to make our community healthier and more prosperous. With the low population density in our rural area, the business case for Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to deliver broadband is not favourable, without investment by the provincial government. Council supports this exciting initiative and hope the Ministry will give it their favourable consideration.

Business Advancement Group Members of the business community meet regularly to discuss and implement ideas to improve the economic climate and business sustainability throughout North Frontenac. For information on how to become involved, contact Steve Smart at (613) 336-2222, or fax (613) 336-8773, or at smartsmarina@xplornet.com.

Schools The Limestone District School Board (LDSB) serves the counties of Frontenac and Lennox and Addington. Their 55 elementary schools, 11 secondary schools and Limestone School of Community Education have an attendance of over 24,000 students. LDSB operates one school in North Frontenac, Clarendon Central Public School in Plevna. Clarendon Central PS serves students from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 8

Clarendon Central Public School in Plevna.

Residents of North Frontenac can attend any of the schools in the neighbouring municipalities including, the North Addington Education Centre in Cloyne, and Sharbot Lake Public School, Sharbot Lake High School and Land O’ Lakes Public School in the adjacent Township of Central Frontenac, which may better accommodate students in the east or south portions of North Frontenac. The North Addington Education Centre serves students from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12. North Addington Education Centre ďŹ rst opened its doors to 125 secondary school students in 1962 under the name North Addington High School. In 1971 it took on the new name still used today and also took in elementary school students. It became unique in that it had all school grades in one building. Surrounding elementary schools were closed and children were bused to North Addington. North Frontenac is fortunate to have facilities in proximity to serve elementary and secondary public school students. The elementary school in Plevna is centrally located and easily serves North Frontenac.

911 and Civic Addressing & Mapping Initiatives For issues regarding safety, it is vital that every inhabited property, permanent and seasonal, is issued a 911 civic address and blue blade sign by the township. These numbers are calculated strategically to indicate to any emergency response a precise location is in need of services. Lack of proper addressing greatly hinders the ability for emergency response personnel to locate and service your property. Make sure you have a civic address and it is properly posted! For all residents, it is necessary to acquire an address before building permits or road entrance permits can be issued.

Mapping Initiatives The township is excited about the comprehensive mapping initiatives that are currently being undertaken. It is our goal to create and provide maps, not only for general information of the area, but also including specialized maps for various other outdoor activities and services. We intend to fully utilize available resources, such as provincial datasets, and high-quality landscape imagery data, to make various maps available to all residents, tourists, and others interested. Due to the large datasets that need to be constructed, it will be some time before these initiatives take ight, but certainly we can look forward to acquiring all types of maps available online in digital format, or available for purchase in paper format from the municipal ofďŹ ce.

Fire and Emergency Services A fire department is essential to the well-being of the residents of a given municipality and to sustaining a certain quality of life. A certain assurance is provided by having a group of individuals who are willing to volunteer their time and energy to make sure that the quality of life is upheld. North Frontenac is entirely reliant on the efforts of volunteers who operate out of four fire halls/stations spread across the municipality. FRONTENAC

NORTH

TOWNSHIP FIRE DEPT.

The fire halls are located at 14105 Road 509 in Snow Road Station; 10200 Road 509 in Ompah; 6648 Road 506, just south of Plevna, and at 14833 Highway 41 in Cloyne. This last location is operated by the Kaladar / Barrie Fire Department, and provides protection to both North Frontenac Ward One and Addington Highlands. Helipads The Township of North Frontenac owns and maintains two emergency helipads that can service emergency air transport for the most severe circumstances. Police Services Police services are provided to North Frontenac by the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP). The closest detachments are located in Sharbot Lake and in Kaladar. Call 9-1-1 in an emergency! Paramedic Services The County of Frontenac operates the regional land ambulance service that serves the County of Frontenac and the City of Kingston. The service’s ninety paramedics and fourteen vehicles respond to over 20,000 medical emergency calls each year. There are six ambulance stations in Frontenac County and are spread out from North Frontenac to Frontenac Islands. North Frontenac is served by Station 5 at 11586 Road 509 in Ompah, and other cross-border services depending on where you are in North Frontenac.

HELP US, HELP YOU!

To provide a high quality of emergency response services to North Frontenac, it is essential for YOU, the resident, to do your part. This includes ensuring that property access roads are at least 6 metres wide to allow fire and service trucks through. Also, having sufficiently maintained access roads to your property is essential for the emergency services to provide the proper care you may need. Everyone likes trees, snow, and ornaments in their yards, but don’t let them obstruct YOUR lifeline.

Fire Prevention DON’T BE THE CAUSE OF A WILDFIRE! FireSmart your chimney Chimneys should be constructed to meet current Ontario Building Code requirements and should be screened in with the appropriate approved spark arrestors. Annual chimney cleaning is recommended. Burn barrels and ash pits

For safe disposal of wood debris you should consider chipping and composting or bringing it to a landfill site. If you must burn, ensure that your burn barrel is at least 5 metres from any forest or woodland, 2 metres from buildings or other combustible sources and that a 2 metre area around the barrel is cleared to mineral soil. Burn barrels should have proper ventilation, screens and should never be left unattended. (See “Burning By-law” on page 27.)

Emergency Preparedness For Your Home Emergency situations are unpredictable. Are you prepared to deal with them? Do you know the hazards and risks to yourself and your community? In Ontario, the responsibility for emergency management is shared among individuals and families, communities and municipalities and the governments of Ontario and Canada. We all have a role to play when disaster strikes. Additional resources may be requested by the community through Emergency Management Ontario (EMO). Visit www.ontario. ca/emo to learn more about the Provincial Emergency Response Plan. Everyone should know what to do in the event all family members are not together when an emergency happens. Discussing emergency situations ahead of time will help to reduce fear and anxiety and will help everyone know how to respond. When you should evacuate: • Evacuate only when instructed to do so by your local emergency officials. In some cases it may be safer to remain inside (shelter-in-place). • If ordered to evacuate listen to media reports to learn about areas being evacuated and which routes are safest to take.

What should you do if ordered to evacuate? • Offer to assist neighbours who may not be able to evacuate on their own. If possible, make these arrangements in advance. • Take your family emergency survival kit, important documents (e.g., medical and vaccination records) and your personal valuables (e.g., cash, credit cards). • Evacuate the area affected by the emergency exactly as directed. Remain calm, do not speed and obey official directions as some roads may be closed or rerouted. • Don’t take shortcuts. Doing so might lead you to a blocked or dangerous area. • If evacuating during a chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear (CBRN) incident, keep your car windows and vents closed and air-conditioner turned off. • Avoid using the telephone unless you are reporting an emergency or it is absolutely necessary. Emergency responders and those who need immediate emergency assistance will need all available lines.

Pets and Emergencies Pets are part of our families. During an emergency situation, it is important to know how to keep our animal companions safe. Assemble a pet emergency kit and make arrangements for your pet in the event that you must evacuate.

(See pages 16 and 17 for more information.) Integrated Waste Management Plan – review draft on www.northfrontenac.ca, or contact the municipal office. Wood Bug Alert! Emerald Ash Borer – The Emerald ash borer, Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire, is an invasive insect species from Asia that was first found in North America in June 2002. Despite substantial research and control efforts, the beetle has continued to spread to new areas. Some of this spread has been natural dispersal, but the long distance spread has been helped by people, especially through the movement of nursery stock or infested firewood from infested areas. (See “Firewood Alert!”) If not effectively controlled, the emerald ash borer is expected to spread across the entire range of ash, causing widespread tree mortality. Emerald ash borer adults are metallic green, 8.5 to 13.5 mm long, and slender. The head is flattened, with black compound eyes that cover most of the side of the head. Short antennae extend from the face, then curve back to just past the eyes. The upper side of the abdomen is copper to purplish, and is visible when the wings are open. Asian Long-Horned Beetle – The Asian long-horned beetle, Anoplophora glabripennis, is a large black insect, with white spots scattered on its back. Its distinctively long antennae, that give the beetle its name, are as long, or longer, than the length of its body. This creature is considered an invasive species in North America, because it is a threat to many species of deciduous hardwood trees. The larvae of this beetle bore deep into a tree’s heartwood, where it feeds on nutrients.

The tunnelling that it creates greatly damages a tree and usually kills it. This beetle has the capability of flying for distances of 400 metres, however, they tend to lay eggs from the same location where they emerged as adults. Only once the tree dies, or gets over populated, will the beetle migrate to another host tree. Quarantines have been established around infected areas to prevent spread in the past, throughout Ontario and Canada. Report signs and symptoms of infested trees to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) by phone 1 (800) 442-2342 (toll free) or online at www.inspection.gc.ca, or contact the MNR at 1 (800) 667-1940 (toll free), or your local municipal parks or forestry department. For more information go to www.mnr.gov.on.ca. Wood Burning Appliances – A W.E.T.T. (Wood Energy Technology Transfer) inspection by a certified private contractor is required for the installation of any wood burning appliance (Woodstoves and inserts, fireplaces, etc.). Complete inspection of any wood burning appliance involves an evaluation of every part of the heating system, from the floor pad to the chimney cap. All of these parts are covered in the codes, so compliance can only be determined if every part is inspected. Woodstoves and inserts are more efficient than open fireplaces and, if properly installed, can be quite adequate. However, many difficulties have been experienced, especially with poor connections between fireplace inserts and original chimney flues. A copy of this report is to be submitted to the municipal office, as a Building Permit is mandatory. Zoning By-Law – Make the Township Zoning By-Law your first resource reference when considering any and all forms of development or excavation. Be safe! Get your facts first. Your knowledge of this information and compliance with Municipal By-laws is paramount. The By-laws allow everyone to live in harmony with one another and the environment, while having a continuous regard for our beautiful neighbourhoods, pristine water bodies and natural areas. If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact the Municipal Office at (613) 479-2231 and your call will be directed to the appropriate department. For Municipal Contact numbers and e-mail addresses please see the “Municipal Office” Section of this brochure on page 5.
