POLITICAL REPRESENTATION


The LPRA emails/corresponds with staff and elected officials from all levels of government to protect and put forth the concerns of our members.


COMMUNITY WATCH


Community Watch replaced Cottage Watch in 2018 to align with Provincial programs and also communicate the improvements to property surveillance in Long Point.  This cornerstone LPRA program is designed to report suspicious activity throughout the year. Suspicious behaviour or signs of a possible property violation are reported to the OPP non emergency line 1 888 310-1122.  For violations in progress, volunteers call 911.  OPP are also instructed to contact  LPRA when they are investigating a case in Long Point.   LPRA will make every effort to contact members who are affected.  Finally, LPRA has created a video surveillance network to assist the OPP in making convictions.  To learn more or to volunteer for Community Watch, please write to:  info@LongPointRPA.com.


SPECIAL ISSUES


Over the past years the LPRA has been actively involved with the lakeshore planning issues, municipal assessments, lake levels and other specific issues affecting Long Point.


SOCIAL ACTIVITIES


The LPRA organizes the Annual General Meeting with guest speakers who present topics of special interest to Long Pointers.  The LPRA has also held social events such as dances and golf tournaments in the past.  Unfortunately interest has waned from these events so our 'Big" annual event now is Rockin' On the Point.  We hire a live band, conduct a silent auction and this event has proven to be an opportunity for the Long Point Community to come together with neighbours and friends to enjoy.
