Development plans put on hold for lands neighbouring karst By Kevin Werner Stoney Creek News (ON) Dec 14, 2007
Hamilton planning staff have put the brakes on reviewing any further development proposals for the feeder area lands east of the Eramosa karst until at least next spring, when the Ontario Realty Corporation submits its technical reports on the geographical landmark.
"This is a process that has worked," said Stoney Creek councillor Brad Clark, who represents the area. "Concerns were raised by the community. Everybody agreed to halt the secondary plan. I compliment everyone involved. This has been a very positive process."
In September, politicians agreed to put the brakes on the secondary planning process for the lands east of the karst until at least December. Councillors also stopped the environmental assessment process for a collector road proposed to be built through the karst lands.
