NABRA 2023

North Alport Bay Ratepayers Association
Services

Welcome!

Special thanks to Tim & Lorraine Kennedy for hosting their delightful afternoon NABRA get-together on Saturday, August 12th. A friendly gathering enjoyed by all.

NabraOnline is an online scrapbook of information where members can post and exchange information about their community. And we most certainly welcome your input and contributions!

 

There is a calendar where NABRA dates and events can be found, as well as events in the area that people might find of interest. In our Resources section, there are listings for plumbers, electricians, handymen, and more, all submitted by members who've used those professionals. 

 

If you have a recommendation for a favourite shop or restaurant, why not share that with your neighbours? In the Members Only section, you can find a contact list for other members, download NABRA minutes, and such newsletters as the Muskoka Lakes Association (MLA) updates.

About

WHO WE ARE

The North Alport Bay Residents' Association (NABRA) was founded in 1965 by a group of residents that included Orb Kennedy, Blake Heathcote, Cliff Roberts, Reg Danko, Isobel MacAskill, Lou Specht, Glen Coates, and others long since departed from the area.

The road was originally built by Isobel MacAskill (Isobel and Blake Heathcote's grandmother) in the 1940s. She'd purchased land from her brother, Jack McVittie, who had previously purchased a large quantity of land from around Alport Bay from Max Beaumont's father in the 1930s. The Association was originally known as the Alport Bay Cottagers Association, and its objective was simple: to unite the community in maintaining the road for the benefit of all residents and to investigate what services could and should be provided by the City of Bracebridge through our payment of municipal taxes. In those early years, there was no garbage collection, and so one objective the Association pursued was approaching Bracebridge City Council to request a container be placed near Beaumont Farm.

The Association continues to maintain the road and monitor shared community concerns as younger generations of original owners and new residents continue to enjoy this spectacular corner of Muskoka.
