Road Sand and Salt Storage Facility
Municipal Class Environmental Assessment – Schedule B
The City of Kingston Public Works Department has completed a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) to assess alternatives for replacing the road sand storage facility located at 1010 Middle Road. This 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. Based on work to date the Project Team has selected a preferred option, being the construction of a new road sand and salt storage facility within the St. Lawrence Business Park on Innovation Drive as shown on the key map.
This Class EA is being planned in accordance with the requirements of a Schedule B project under the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment process (October 2000, as amended in 2007 and 2011). This Class EA involves identification of serviceability requirements, assessment of alternative solutions, development of a recommended conceptual design, and
consultation with stakeholder agencies and the public. Subject to comments received as a result of this Notice and the receipt of necessary approvals, the City of Kingston intends to proceed with the detailed design and construction of this project.
