Quarry meeting Feb. 10


The Concerned Residents Coalition (CRC) will hold its third community meeting at the Rockmosa Community Centre on Feb. 10 at 7:30pm.

The guest speaker will be Carl Cosack, the “quarry-breaking cowboy” and former Chair of NDACT (North Dufferin and Community Task Force).

Under his leadership NDACT won its bid against a U.S. hedge fund when they stopped the application for the Melancthon mega-quarry, the largest proposed in Ontario.

He will talk about his experience fighting that quarry, which, like the proposed “hidden quarry” near Rockwood, was located in an agricultural community.

In March 2013, residents of Guelph-Eramosa, Milton, Erin and Halton Hills formed the CRC to respond to the proposal by James Dick Construction Limited to open a gravel pit and quarry called the “hidden quarry” on the north side of Highway 7 at the 6th Line, between Acton and Rockwood.

Since then, CRC has held two community meetings in different parts (Eden Mills and Acton) of the potentially affected region to keep residents informed of progress on the application.

The Rockwood meeting will bring residents up-to-date on CRC research and presentations to council.
