ISSUES

  • the proposed pit site is located within 2km of Skeleton Lake, and could impact the water quality of one of the most pristine lakes in the Muskokas
  • the applicant, Frank Lippa, wants to remove more than 200,000 tonnes of rock, gravel and sand from the site per annum, which would mean that on average more than 100 truckloads per day would be carried on Muskoka Road #3 (recognized as a scenic route), with 70% going towards Huntsville and 30% going towards Rosseau
  • the pit operations would be located in an environmentally sensitive area and could seriously impact deer, moose and bear populations, as well as endangered species, common to this area, including the snapping turtle and eastern wood-pewee
  • the pit would be operating through the height of the summer tourist season, and would have a very negative impact on Muskoka’s growing reputation as a mecca for eco-tourism
