MERIDIAN PLANS TO CLEAR-CUT 34 ACRES OF FOREST IN THE WINTER OF 2017 / 2018
PROPERTY VALUE BOMBSHELL! "A study conducted by economist Diane Hite ... suggests a large pit or quarry can reduce the value of residential properties within a half kilometer by as much as 25%, and homes within one kilometer by as much as 15%."
AND It could be EVEN worse - see THIS.
HIGHLIGHTS of MERIDIAN's PLAN
Meridian will start tree cutting even if the Noise / Dust / Archaeological / Ecological studies are not completed
Meridian can change their Phasing Plan at any time - the end result will be the 'death' of ~9,000 trees
The quarry will be ~20 meters distance from some of the homes on Westhaven Drive.
We are unaware of any testing for carcinogens resulting from the current quarry digging operation
Many questions from the audience were not answered or were so vague / convoluted as to be meaningless.
Meridian's contempt for proper procedure seems to be a result of a 1972 license and our dismissive politicians
