Crane Lake Gas Community Funding

$26,607 of $17,000 goal

Help Keep Gas on Crane & Blackstone Lakes
With the final approval of the Crane Lake Resort Development Plan, all commercial operations, including the sale of gas, must now move away from the residential condo development lands, to the property designated for commercial Marina Use. While all parties are working to help with the transition, the current pump at Crane Lake Resort is over 25 years old, extremely fragile, and no parts are available to repair it if it fails.  

The capital expenditure to the Crane Lake Marina to purchase and install a new gas pump and storage tank is overwhelming. At the Annual General Meeting of the Crane Lake Association, members unanimously agreed with the need for a public fundraising campaign to Crane and Blackstone Lakes to support our local Marina. 

The Marina's total cost to purchase and install the new gas pump and tank facilities is $32,000. The Crane Lake Resort Owner has generously contributed $15,000 towards these costs, leaving a goal of $17,000. 

All funds raised from the campaign will be held in a separately earmarked bank account of the Crane Lake Association, a not-for-profit organization with a strong banking infrastructure already in place. The funds are to be released to Crane Lake Marina and accounted for as the project invoices are presented to the Marina for payment by the various contractors involved. At the CLA AGM, membership indicated that any funds collected in excess of the $17,000 goal would be used towards assisting Mike and Sue Steele (marina operators) with store relocation, new boat launch facility, etc.

The Crane Lake Marina is a vital community member providing our community with services including boat/snowmobile/ATV repairs, winter storage, water access parking/boat slips, and a store offering sales of propane, water, snacks and ice cream.  Mike and Sue Steele are committed to continuing their services for many years to come. This is our chance to ensure professional gas sales continue to be a part of the Marina operations and available to all property owners of Crane and Blackstone Lake well into the future.
