Our Mission and Objectives (Goals) provide a good idea of what we are about and demonstrate the benefits for our Residents.  Some problems that you may encounter are barking dogs, loud parties, grass too long in the playground, fallen trees, holes in the roadways, noisy vehicles – these types of issues can all be addressed by either the RCMP, (phone # 826-3100) or HRM (phone # 490 4000).  If you do not receive satisfaction and it is a major concern, present it at the Homeowners Meeting and perhaps with greater numbers, we can get the problem resolved.  It is hoped that we can all work on projects together, projects that come as a result of Residents/Members input and help.  Please remember, we are all volunteers and as such, we are donating our time to our community.  If you have any ideas or suggestions, please drop us an email at hana@sheldrakelake.com so we can help to improve our Community and attend Homeowner meetings.
