Some History

The Association was started in 1973 by a few concerned and farsighted owners on Silvery Lane. The state of the road, especially in the Winter and Springtime, was of concern. Although owned by the developer, the responsibility for its upkeep had been passed to the residents. In addition, the developer had plans for massive expansion on both lakes “which would result in the over- development and degradation of the pleasant, quiet environment”, said Ken Jackson, the first president, in a letter outlining activities of the Association

There has been considerable activity by the Association in presenting the position of the residents in various planning/development issues, including appearing before the OMB. Between 1985 & 1990, the Association provided liaison with Lanark County regarding spraying for the Gypsy Moth infestation.

The Little Silver Lake Property Owners Association was incorporated in 1982 and in 2004 the name was changed to include Rainbow Lake property owners.
