Pit not welcome

Resident concerned about gravel extraction plans near Vernon

An application to operate a gravel pit on Brentwood Road is uniting area residents, concerned citizens and local politicians.

Located at the end of Brentwood Road near BX school, the 19.1 acre property is in the country-residential zone and the Agricultural Land Reserve.

It is bordered by BX Creek on the west, the BX Falls trail to the north, the Grey Canal trail to the east and grazing lands to the south.

We have gathered hundreds of signatures on petitions and will be presenting them to the ALC soon.  Please help us join this fight.

E-mail your concerns to stopbxcreekpit@outlook.com or write a letter to this newspaper.

We have lived on the BX Creek ravine for 33 years and this use of agricultural land is not welcome.
