Big Lakes County Releases Community Driven Services Maps for Residents and Visitors

Written by Kaleb Brink, Grants Officer

Whether you’ve lived in Big Lakes County (BLC) your whole life or it’s your first time here, you may not realize how embedded community organizations are in each of our hamlets.  Our community organizations really do a ton. They operate campsites, manage recreational and social infrastructure, provide cultural and recreational activities, host farmers markets, support seniors, plan and host community events, maintain public areas and amenities, and even pursue hamlet beautification activities. Their good work has a major impact on our quality of life and even on our economy.

With their broad scopes and far-reaching activities, the important roles these organizations play in our communities sometimes go unrecognized. That is why BLC’s developed Community Driven Services – Maps. The maps showcase these services and make them easier for residents and visitors to access. 

These vibrant maps, much like BLC itself, are all about the colourful experience one has in Big Lakes County. That’s why they also highlight amenities such as shops and fuel, natural assets, and fun activities. We made these maps to enhance your experience. For example, if you’re spending a weekend at the Joussard Community Association’s Lakeshore Campground, you should check out the water access, swimming, fishing, shops, parks, walking trails etc. just look to the community map! You’ll have a better, more enjoyable time in our county. 

Our community organizations are our boots on the ground, influencing community development and growth neighbour to neighbour. This personal, collaborative approach to community enhancement sets the bar high, and it’s why we’re so excited to be able to share our community driven services – maps with you. So, you can experience for yourself how BLC has been investing in our communities for you.
