Notice of Study Commencement - Road Sand and Salt Storage
November 12, 2013 -
Schedule B Class Environmental Assessment
The City of Kingston Public Works Department has initiated a Class Environmental Assessment (EA) to assess alternatives for replacing the road sand storage facility located at 1010 Middle Road. The existing road sand storage facility is leased by the City of Kingston and will no longer be available following the 2013/2014 winter maintenance season. The project is being undertaken to confirm a preferred location that will maintain or improve operational efficiencies in the winter maintenance program. Based on the review to date the Project Team has selected a preferred option, located within the St Lawrence Business Park on Innovation Drive as shown on the key map.
The Class EA project is being planned in accordance with the requirements of a Schedule B project under the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (October 2000, as amended in 2007 and 2011). The Class EA process involves identification of serviceability requirements, assessment of alternative solutions, development of a recommended conceptual design, and consultation with stakeholder agencies and the public. The preferred location will be subject to Council approval.
Public and agency consultation is a key element of the Class EA process and input will be sought for incorporation into the planning and design of this project and will be received no later than Wednesday, Dec. 4, 2013.
