Just a quick reminder that the Public Information Centre/Meeting/Workshop on the Environmental Assessment for the Livingston Avenue Extension will be held on Tuesday (May 28th), starting at 6:15PM at the Casablanca Winery Inn.

According to the E-Bulletin from Niagara Region, the schedule for the evening will be:

Registration: 6:15 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
Workshop Session: 6:30 p.m. – 8:45 p.m.
Workshop Close: 8:45 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Bruce MacKenzie who has tirelessly fought to preserve and save the Irish Grove Woodlot stated it quite succinctly in an e-mail we received:

“We hope that you will be able to attend this important PIC and if the recommendation is push a road through the Irish Grove Woodlot we all need to tell the Region to stop dead in its tracks. The community does not need or want the road. This was proven in the last election and in our fight to keep the Greenbelt and the Tender Fruit Lands in Grimsby.”

Last summer we posted a guest article from Bruce about the “east-west transportation” issue in town. You can read more in the post “14 Lanes Are Enough” by clicking here.

Whether you are in the majority who want to protect the Irish Grove Woodlot by preventing a road through it, or the small group of land-owners who want to pave through it and financially benefit… this is a must attend meeting.

Once again, the PIC will be on Tuesday May 28th at the Casablanca Winery Inn, beginning at 6:15PM.
