Ambleside Dundarave Ratepayers Association



The Ambleside and Dundarave Ratepayers’ Association (ADRA), a legally constituted society, run entirely by volunteers, strives to inform and involve residents on issues that impact their community.

Initially incorporated by resident Eddie McKye in 1979 in order to mobilize residents to respond against “spot zoning”, our focus has been on the Ambleside and Dundarave areas and the people that love this special place.


ADRA Annual General Meeting – Saturday May 13th – 1PM, WV Seniors Centre. Mayor & Council have been invited to attend for a Q&A after the business section of the meeting is finished.

Arts and Culture Survey and Meetings – Many of our members had strong opinions on building an arts centre on the waterfront. Make your opinions known by taking the online survey at or by attending one of the World Cafe meetings on May 15, 25 or 27. (please RSVP to District at 913-2772 for meeting attendance)

Public Hearing – June 5th, Council Chambers. The first part of a revised Official Community Plan (OCP) is based on the Marine Drive Context Study (MDCS) This area plan was based on three large development proposals for the area near Taylor Way and Marine Drive and public input was only sought after it had been drafted by the Planning Department.
