Port Colborne quarry expansion to allow public input on March 8

February 10, 2023  By

For the first time since the Port Colborne quarry filed its proposal to expand its operations with the city and Niagara Region in July 2021, the public can now show up in person to voice their concerns over the application.

The region’s Planning and Economic Development Committee is holding a public meeting on March 8 at 1 pm to hear from the public over the expansion.

The application for expansion has come under some fire from both local residents and environment groups. According to the application filed with the Region, the quarry owned by Rankin Construction is asking for four separate planning and rezoning approvals, some of which could be considered contentious.
