This is the agenda and a very interesting report regarding public feedback from the CRD open house events held with regards to the Viewfield/Hartland site. 20130703agendaoptirb
Thanks again for attending the meeting tonight and showing support for your WPCA committee as well as providing direction on the issues with regard to the site for the proposed biosolids (sludge) plant. It was a great turnout and I think it was very important to participate as a community talking to our local politicians.
Most importantly, HERE IS THE LINK TO THE FEEDBACK FORM! http://www.crd.bc.ca/surveys/Survey.aspx?s=3751575c8d1e437287a749def502c787
IT MUST BE SUBMITTED BY FRIDAY (tomorrow) JUNE 28 – supposedly by midnight but I’d do it by the time the CRD closes at 4pm just to be safe. The most important part of this form is the “extra feedback” portion where you can write comments in. Please take the time to do this form.
You can also keep up to date with community events at www.willispoint.ca
For those that didn’t get the emails that I had previously sent out with pictures of the Burnside open house, the pictures of the leachate line coming down from Hartland, or the direct responses from the CRD representatives with regards to the questions that we posed, please email me and I’ll be sure to forward them to you so you’re up to speed.
We will be talking about this again at our next WPCA meeting on July 8th and will be acting on some action items such as setting up a committee to represent Willis Point specifically on this issue. Stay tuned for upcoming info.
Thanks again to Wally Vowle, Mike Hicks and in particular, Judy Brownoff for attending our meeting.
Remember that all feedback needs to be submitted by MIDNIGHT on June 28th – that is THIS FRIDAY! Here’s the link again if you need it: http://www.crd.bc.ca/surveys/Survey.aspx?s=3751575c8d1e437287a749def502c787
Mike Hicks, Director of the Juan de Fuca Electoral Area, has confirmed that he will be attending the Special Meeting of the WPCA on the Sewage Treatment plant at the Willis Point Community Hall on Thursday, June 27th, at 7pm.
CRD is basing their decision on feedback they get from their online form as to whether they build the sewage treatment plant in Esquimalt or at Hartland. Here’s the link to their page – please fill it out BEFORE JUNE 27th to have your voice heard. www.crd.bc.ca/cawtp and http://www.crd.bc.ca/surveys/Survey.aspx?s=3751575c8d1e437287a749def502c787
We will be having a special meeting with the CRD at the Willis Point Community Hall on Thursday, June 27th at 7pm. This meeting will be for Willis Point residents to get information on the installation of the proposed sewage treatment plant that the CRD is considering for Hartland Landfill. There are some things to consider regarding this location that have an effect on Willis Point as a community.
PLEASE come out to this meeting to ask the CRD questions about what their plan is and how it will affect us.
