Yesterday's Waterloo Region Record carrys this story "Woolwich blocks gravel pit proposal". Woolwich Township have closed their file on the proposed Capitol Paving gravel pit at West Montrose. This was done due to the inactivity of the file since 2008. Thus if Capitol Paving wish to reapply it will be under more stringent rules that now cite the area as a heritage landscape. Both Tony Dowling of the Bridgekeepers and Mayor Todd Cowan were very pleased with this development with Tony stating "We applaud the Township for being proactive". Mayor Cowan stated "I am very pleased with the decision to close this file,", and "It is very important that we continue to work to preserve the cultural heritage and natural beauty of our communities.". Once again well done Woolwich Township and Council.
