ASGA appears at PPC Go back

Tuesday, June 5, 2018

On June 5, ASGA member and Land and Resource Manager at Burnco, Travis Coates, lead a presentation to Rocky View County’s (RVC) Policy and Priorities Committee.

The presentation was focused on the value of aggregate operations in Alberta, particularly in RVC and the Calgary region. Coates also continued to emphasize that the ASGA supports clear parameters related to planning application submission requirements and performance standards as proposed within the ARP and believes that proactive planning for surficial development and aggregate resources focused on impact identification, mitigation and adherence to performance standards is the best path forward.

The twenty minute presentation was followed-up by a series of impromptu questions from RVC Council.

The presentation is part of the ASGA’s broader communication campaign, also launched on June 5, which aims to share their collective position on the ARP and provide general information about the aggregate industry in Alberta
