Echo Lake Community Speaker Series

Traffic & Safety Forum for Echo Lake Community

The first Zoom to discuss Traffic Safety was a great success - Jul 28, 2020

There was a short presentation followed by an interactive discussion.

The details and video of the meeting are available for you if you were unable to attend. Further discussions will continue to address the deteriorating traffic and safety issues. You can find more information HERE. If you would like to be part of the solution, please contact

Echo Lake Community Group


The Echo Lake Community board is re-launching the Speaker Series using online meetings on Zoom. This reaffirms our commitment first and foremost to the safety and health of the families in our community.

The Echo Lake Community Group is hosting a series of events to inform, educate, and provide everyone an opportunity to socialize with neighbors and dialog about some of the community concerns.

Community strength comes from the people living here. Your attendance and voice is important so please put the dates on your calendar.

The planning for these events is ongoing. As more detailed information becomes available, it will be posted below. The schedule will depend on the topics and schedules of the speakers. Confirmed events are shown in RED.
