REWORKING the Aggregate (Gravel) Policy

The County's Draft Aggregate Policy is being revised.

The County's Draft Aggregate Policy is being revised.

The County's Draft Aggregate Policy is being revised. Thank you to the many Bearspaw residents who copied me on more than 50 emails with expressed concerns and recommendations to the County. These comments ranged from a couple of paragraphs  to others with up to 15 pages of detailed critique. The Lowther family also submitted our concerns and comments. I know of several others who followed up their submissions with personal discussions with staff at the County offices.

Although the way people expressed themselves varied, it seems to me that the key themes and concerns are similar. Many submitted detailed recommendations for specific improvements.

My understanding at this point is that County staff are collating all feedback received and will use the feedback to revise the draft Aggregate Resource Plan.  (see County Site)

I believe that the input received  will result in a new draft, hopefully sometime in April, if not before. 

Thank you for your help. It makes a difference.
