Public should be able to comment on woodlot before decision is made: Mackenzie

The Town of Grimsby is soliciting the Province to remove the Irish Grove Woodlot and the lands around it from the Greenbelt in the Greenbelt Review that is occurring now, said Bruce Mackenzie one of the organizers of the save the Wood Lot campaign.

“Removing the woodlot from the Greenbelt without having the Public Information Centre is taking away from the public the opportunity to comment on how people feel about whether or not the Greenbelt should be changed in Grimsby.”

The PIC was supposed to take place last fall but has been delayed several times.

An May 9 open house from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. has been planned at the woodlot and the community to encouraged to come out.

“The woodlot should be in early spring bloom and we should be able to provide for a great family day with naturalist led hikes through the woodlot and a barbecue supporting FORT,” said Mackenzie. “A major road going through the woodlot would have severe detrimental effects on the ecology of the woodlot and the wildlife that inhabit it.”

The lot is located at 38 Hunter Rd.
