So do we! This public resource should be accessible to the tax-paying public who for 60 years have made Gleason Road and Bahia Point a treasured home away from home. We need your help to stop a plan by the Bahia Resort which will severely limit and change the make-up and access this location.
Bahia Point Paddle & Appreciation Day Saturday, March 10th at 9am.
Thank you to the hundreds who got together on a cold wet morning (on and off the water), to put city council on alert that the submitted plans that would irreparably harm the public’s use (as protected by the MB Master plan) of Bahia Point and Gleason Road as well as celebrate in solidarity what a special place it is. You can see more video and pictures posted by attendees at the Citizens Facebook Group.
NEXT STEP: Contact Your City Council!
Help protect Bahia Point from becoming privatized. #KeepMissionBayPublic
