As the days of summer wind down, our thoughts turn once more to the regular patterns of school, work and our fall leisure and social activities. On behalf of Council, I would like to thank all who contributed to, and participated in, the summer's many activities and celebrations that make our community so vibrant! A special note of congratulations to the Larrimac Golf Club who celebrated their 90th anniversary this year, making them one of the oldest community groups!

The Municipality of Chelsea wishes to inform its residents and tourists traveling within its territory that it will be lowering the speed limit on Scott Road as of Oct 4, 2014.
The Municipal Council made this decision at its regular meeting of July 7th. All of Scott Road will be affected; areas where the speed was 60 km/h will now be 50 km/h and the school area will become a 30 km/h zone. The objective is obviously to improve the safety for all using this road, as well as for the students of du Grand-Boisé, located in the heart of this area.
The Municipality of Chelsea is happy to present the Active Transportation Masterplan, created in partnership with Chelsea Trails. The plan was tabled during last Municipal Council meeting and will be adopted at the next one. This plan will be an important tool for the development of trails and bicycle paths in Chelsea, in order to serve the needs for utilitarian and recreational trips as well as to promote healthy lifestyles.
