In April 2021, Mountain Ash Limited Partnership (“MALP”) submitted a Development Permit (“DP”) application to Rocky View County, which is currently under review with a decision expected in July of 2021.
MALP kicked-off a public engagement approach as part of its DP application process in March 2021. The objective of the approach was to work with the local community to address questions, concerns, or comments related to the DP. Our approach included a mailing to landowners within 1,600 m of the site, and key stakeholder organizations, to provide a project update and offer the opportunity for a virtual meeting to respond to any questions or concerns, email correspondence, and telephone and virtual meetings.
A primary component of the engagement approach has been to offer landowners within an 800 m radius of the subject site the opportunity to participate in a well monitoring program administered by MALP. Five landowners have agreed to participate in the program which will result in the installation of five monitoring stations in addition to the 11 stations installed within the subject site.
In total, MALP has participated in numerous email exchanges and 10 virtual meetings and phone calls with interested landowners and stakeholder organizations, at which 33 individuals were registered to participate.
