WELCOME!

THE FINAL DECISION  – February 11, 2020  

The Hidden Quarry was approved on February 11, subject to conditions, by Ontario’s Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT).  

Yes, CRC is deeply disappointed.  But we remain very proud of our 7 years and counting, standing up for what is right.

Where will the Hidden Quarry be located, likely beginning in 2020?

Go to 6th Line Eramosa, NE corner on Hwy 7 between Rockwood and Acton.  That’s the spot!  There is also an additional 200 acres on the west side of 6th Line Eramosa that James Dick Construction will likely use to expand the Hidden Quarry.   

James Dick Construction intends to operate its Hidden Quarry in the heart of the Paris/Galt Moraine and next door to homes, busy commuter traffic, truck and train routes.   

What is a Moraine?    Put simply, it is a natural formation of rock, sand and gravel.  It provides head water to river systems which provide your drinking water.  Moraines are also home to endangered and other valued species.  It is a high risk location for a quarry.

What is left to do at the CRC?

1/ RAISE FUNDS

Our community has been extraordinarily generous over 7 years.   LPAT Hearings cost dearly.  The CRC is committed to paying as much as possible of its remaining  legal and consulting expenses.  You, your friends and family can choose from 3 ways to DONATE:

  1. Go to DONATE tab above, on this website.
  2. At  www.gofundme.com/hiddenquarry
  3. Mail a cheque to CRC Rockwood Inc., PO Box 121, Rockwood, ON, N0B 2K0.

2/ JOIN THE COMMUNITY LIAISON COMMITTEE 

This committee must be formed by James Dick Construction and Guelph Eramosa Township (GET) Council, likely in 2020.  Volunteer members will be essential to help monitor the conditions of the Hidden Quarry operation.  Contact GET Council or CRC today to find out more.

CRC VOLUNTEERS ARE SIMPLY THE BEST!   

STAY HAPPY, STAY IN TOUCH.
