MONO RESIDENTS PACK TOWN HALL TO VOICE CONCERN WITH PROPOSED VIOLET HILL PIT 12/6/2017 9:43:05 AM
Many people who moved to Mono did so because they wanted to get away from the busy and noisy city.
But they're concerned that they will lose the quiet nature they've come to enjoy if a proposed gravel pit in the Violet Hill Spillway is approved.
Residents attended a public meeting Tuesday (Dec. 5) to express their concern with Greenwood Construction Ltd.'s application for a sand and gravel pit between the 3rd and 4th Lines south of Highway 89.
Greenwood plans to extract one million tonnes of sand and gravel per year from the 358 acres property.
Doug MacLeod says it will be disruptive.
Members of Protect Mono were in attendance.
Director Richard Baird says he doesn't want to see the Violet Hill spillway dug up.
On average, the site is expected to generate 12.5 truckloads per hour. During the off-peak season the volume is expected to be approximately half of that.
That has Kelly Werner worried about the air she breathes.
Another meeting is scheduled for January 2 before a statutory meeting on January 24.
Mono is still waiting for input from other organizations and agencies.
