With global warming and the environment being hot topics these days (pun intended), the Town is looking for a few good and talented people for it’s new Grimsby Green Advisory Committee (GGAC).Continue reading
The Region will be presenting as a delegation at tonight’s Council meeting on the proposed Livingston Avenue Extension, as part of the Regional Official Plan Amendment 13 (ROPA 13).Continue reading
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.Continue reading
Well, thanks to a tip from a reader we now know that the Region will be hosting their Public Information Centre #2 for the Livingston Avenue Extension EA on Tuesday May 28th. It should be interesting to see what plans they have for the Irish Grove Woodlot.Continue reading
With fall in the air, our local enclaves of forests (well, we don’t really have many left below the escarpment) are starting to turn into beautiful hues and the much loved Irish Woodlot in Grimsby is no exception. As such, we thought it would be apt to turn our “How They Voted” eyes onto the Irish Woodlot and the proposed “Livingston Avenue Extension” through it.
The Region sent out a letter to residents along Casablanca announcing a “Stakeholder Workshop” will be held on September 27, 2018 at Southward Park Community Centre in regards to the Casablanca Environmental Assessment (EA). While the letter was sent to those on Casablanca Boulveard, if you have an interest or simply live in the West End of Grimsby, you should attend.
We are going to hand over the reins of this post to Bruce Mackenzie, a local and noted naturalist who has championed conservation of natural resources both here in Grimsby and around the province. You might recognize his name as part of Hawkwatch, saving the Biggar Lagoons bird habitat or his dedication to preserving the woodlot.
The Council Chambers were packed again as two hot issues were on the agenda – the potential Livingston Avenue Extension through the woodlot and ongoing dumping of fill on Kemp Road properties. And don’t miss the New Business piece at the very end … the Biodigester!
Council is back for another summer session on Monday August 21st, 2017 at 6:30 PM (summer start time). There is a couple interesting delegations on the Agenda including one to speak about the dumping that is occurring on Kemp and another landowner family *supporting* the idea of a Livingston Avenue Extension.
It was standing room only at the August 16th Public Works Committee meeting, literally…. the Chambers did not have enough seats, so many stood in the doorway throughout the proceedings. A “tip of the hat” definitely goes to all those residents who attended and show their support for saving the Irish Woodlot.
