RM of Springfield Informational Meeting

Aggregate Operation Proposal

Tuesday, September 29, 2015

 
 
On Tuesday, September 29, 2015, the RM of Springfield is hosting an Informational Meeting regarding a proposal from Diamond Construction to open an aggregate operation (gravel pit) in the area of Springhill Winter Park on Oasis Road, within 27-11-4E.

The RM of East St. Paul has an interest in this proposal as the majority of our municipal water is supplied by four wells in the immediate area.  The wells are situated on provincial Crown lands in the RM of Springfield. 

Near the end of August 2015, East St. Paul Council learned that Springfield Council would be hearing a proposal from Diamond construction to open the aggregate operation at their September 15, 2015, meeting.  East St. Paul requested to appear as a delegation.  Subsequently, we learned the item was not on the agenda but attended the meeting as scheduled where Mayor Hart made a presentation to Springfield Council. 

In her presentation, Mayor Hart outlined:
  • East St. Paul’s concerns regarding ongoing access to clean, safe water;

  • Potential development conditions for consideration if Springfield approves the operation;

  • A request to work closely with the RM of Springfield on this project so that the interests of both communities can be addressed.

 

Two days after Mayor Hart’s presentation to Springfield Council, we learned the RM of Springfield had decided to host an Information Meeting regarding the proposed project.  East St. Paul has registered to speak at this meeting and Mayor Hart will be making presentation on behalf of the RM.

Date:Tuesday, September 29, 2015
