In early 2015, a concerned and growing group of village residents began discussing the creation of a community development organization that could link the past to the present and onward.  Together, through coordinated efforts, residents, businesses and visitors, could organize year-round activities, services and events, addressing community needs.  With this common mission in mind, Crystal Beach would then be empowered to develop renewed community pride including appreciation for the entire village and its unique history and assets.

ACB is strongly positioned for success as a key organization in the development of new opportunities.  Through collaborative outreach with municipal and regional service providers and others interested in helping us achieve our objectives, we are focused on key projects around:  affordable housing, securing a community hub, a publication centred on historical interests of Crystal Beach, developing a broad range of events welcoming family, tourist and business participation – and more.

If you have an idea you believe would contribute to the advancement of Crystal Beach, please reach out to us.  

We welcome volunteers!
