PARKING PERMITS AND MEMBERSHIP CERTIFICATES

For 2022, Parking Permits will continue to be purchased through WWKCA. In future years, Parking Permits will be purchased through the Municipality:

On April 19, 2022, the Municipality of Whitestone passed a motion to be responsible for parking at both Wah-Wash-Kesh public landings.  The Municipality will be responsible for maintenance, enforcement and collection of parking permit fees in the near future. This year, 2022, will be a transition year, as WWKCA has already begun selling permits. Enforcement will be a joint venture in the short-term, transitioning to full Municipal responsibility.  As enforcement efforts will begin this year, IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU DISPLAY YOUR 2022 PARKING PERMIT IN YOUR VEHICLE!

The Membership Certificates have been changed in an effort to cut costs.  You will be receiving an emailed letter containing the Membership certificate once the design is completed.

 Thank you for continuing to support our lake!
