CONCERNS RAISED ABOUT NEW QUARRY PROPOSED FOR BLACK BAY ROAD
11/8/2017 8:49:09 AM
The possibility of a new quarry on Black Bay Road has some residents up in arms. There was a public meeting held during Monday's (Nov 6) council meeting, where council and the public could hear from the developers of the proposed quarry. The developers and the owner are hoping to get amendments to the official plan and to zoning to allow them to extract aggregate and turn that area into a gravel pit. Some of the main concerns raised by the public and council were concerns for the provincially significant wetlands in the area, noise created by machinery, the increase in traffic and how the trucks would impact the road. At the end of the day, the meeting was just for information purposes and to hear any concerns there may be about the quarry. Council will table these amendments and vote on them at a later date.
