NOTICE

Town of the Blue Mountains Council Meeting

April 16, 2018

FINAL APPROVAL NOT TO CHANGE THE OFFICIAL PLAN TO REZONE

Place: 32 Mill Street Municipal Offices

Time: 7:00 PM

Please see the Resources section below for Ian Sinclair's Deputation to Council Nov 2016

 The Pit

A proposal has been submitted to the Town of the Blue Mountains by the owners of the Conn Gravel Pit seeking changes to our community's official plan. The changes would allow a new pit to be established bordering the Pretty River Valley Provincial Park and enable the operators to destroy the significant wildlife habitat buffering the park. Increased noise and dust from gravel extraction will impact the Pretty River Valley and more large trucks will haul large loads on roads around the Valley and Three Stage.

We need your help to keep this rural land as significant woodland and forest. Help us convince our council that changes should not be made to allow its destruction. Please sign our online petition or contact them directly at the municipal office.

Sincerely,
Friends of The Pretty River Valley
