Circulation Letter


Circulation Letter from the City of Hamilton

As a resident in the immediate neighbourhood of the proposed Lowndes Holdings Corp. (now owned by St Marys Cement CBM) Carlisle Quarry, you may have received a letter from the City of Hamilton on this issue. This letter has been sent in response to the application for Official Plan Change and Zoning Change that Lowndes Holdings Corp. has finally delivered to City Hall. We believe the letter was delivered to all property owners with 120 meters of the proposed development as well as those citizens that have explicitly asked to be notified about this application. It is your first official opportunity to register your displeasure at this intrusion into our neighbourhood and our lives, but it will certainly not be your only opportunity

FORCE suggests that any resident who received such a letter should reply to it, by email or by letter. The reason that a response is desirable, even at this early stage, is that each and every objection is recorded and appended to the official record associated with the Lowndes Holdings Corp. application file. A massive file, containing many objections from the community, cannot help but enhance the credibility of the arguments against the establishment of this quarry.

There are many reasons to object to this proposed quarry. A few suggestions are:

An email or letter, outlining your objections in your own words, using any or all of these points, and of course any others you may have, should be sent to:
