Springfield Council rejects Diamond Construction application
Posted: November 3, 2015
On Sept. 29, 2015, a notice was posted on the East St. Paul website regarding a proposal from Diamond Construction to open an aggregate (gravel pit) operation near Springhill Winter Park on Oasis Road in the R.M. of Springfield.
The majority of East St. Paul's municipal water is supplied by four wells in the immediate area of Springhill Winter Park.
East St. Paul Mayor Shelley Hart identified concerns about municipal water safety during one presentation to Springfield Council, and at a public information meeting in Springfield.
At its Oct. 20 meeting, Springfield Council rejected Diamond Construction's permit application in a 4-2 vote.For additional information, click HERE to read the original website notice posted on Sept. 29. This notice includes Mayor Hart's presentation to Springfield Council on Sept. 15.
