Lake Echo Residents Not Pacified by Waste Facility Open HouseLake Echo Residents Not Pacified by Waste Facility Open House
March 3, 2016
An open house held Wednesday night to give Lake Echo area residents a closer look at a proposed construction waste processing facility didn't go far to ease their worries about pollution, dust and noise.
Kiann Management has applied to rezone 14.7 hectares of land to build a construction and demolition waste processing facility off Highway 7.
A citizens group called the Coalition for Safe and Healthy Communities of Preston, Mineville, Lake Echo and Porters Lake is opposed to the possible rezoning. Deb Day, who heads the coalition, attended the open house.
"It doesn't matter which format you use, the citizens and the residents of the four communities are going to be upset. They're going to be concerned, angry and they have so many questions." said Day.
