FORCE Summer 2005 Activities Update

Summer is now unfortunately behind us, and everyone is busy catching up and settling into fall routines. The same holds true for FORCE. Here is a summary of our activities over the Summer.

Summer 2005 demonstrated to us how the aggregate application planning process will ebb and flow. Sometimes it will be very visible and public, requiring actions by FORCE supporters and generating lots of media attention, and sometimes it will be invisible and seemingly inactive.

The City of Hamilton's process continues to move forward, though at a very slow pace, with respect to the Carlisle Quarry application. The City's Peer Review Team commenced its work once Lowndes Holdings Corp. finally posted their bond. We expect to see the first results of that work this sometime fall.

In the meantime FORCE was involved in a number of activities. These included:

In addition to the activities highlighted above, FORCE volunteer canvassers have been busy throughout the summer meeting with community residents and businesses securing financial commitments and distributing lawn signs. Please contact FORCE at info@StopTheQuarry.ca to make your 2005 financial commitment or order a lawn sign, if you have not yet done so.

The Steering Committee has also continued to meet every two weeks to plan and oversee execution of both short and long term activities as well as monitor the work of our Experts

If you have feedback, questions or time that you can volunteer to help, please contact FORCE at info@StopTheQuarry.ca.


Together We Will Succeed!
