Opinion: Gravel pit concerns

By not phoning to oppose gravel pit plans says you wouldn't mind having this happen in your neighborhood.

Please write/call The Ministry of Energy and Mines to let them know that allowing Rolling Mix Concrete  and Rock'n Roll Aggregates to go ahead with their plans to mine directly behind Evergreen Trailer Park and the community of Rosa Rd is wrong. We have seniors, children and people that are already vulnerable to the air quality problems.

My understanding is they can mine as close as 5 metres to properties behind them. Yes, we need gravel, but this plan is too aggressively close to people, after Rolling Mix and Rock'n Roll cut down all the trees in the 100 metre buffer. The winds are severe now and debris from the mine has also picked up and noise is high.

By not phoning to oppose gravel pit plans says you wouldn't mind having this happen in your neighborhood.

In new plans it says the hours of operation, then in brackets (extended if required for customer needs). Say what? They could be a 24/7 day operation? This operation will adversely effect everyone if it goes because it will set a precedence for future operations as well.
