COCO meeting April 4, 7pm at Hubley Centre


This is a reminder that the Council of Community Organizations (COCO) will meet on April 4 at 7pm at the Hubley Center, 4408 St. Margaret's Bay Road, Lewis Lake.

As you may know, HRM is proposing changes to the operation of the Otter Lake Landfill that potentially could have environmental impacts and other concerns for the community. These proposed changes do not comply with agreements made with the public in 1995 during the consultations and planning for the operation of the Otter Lake Landfill site.
We are very pleased that Ken Donnelly will attend the April 4 COCO meeting to present the Community Monitoring Committee's position on HRM's proposed changes to the environmental and community protection elements of the Otter Lake Landfill.
Here is a link to an editorial by Deputy Mayor Reg Rankin, which was recently published in the Chronicle Herald explaining the issues with the proposed changes.

You are also invited to sign an online petition opposing the changes, which was created by Iain Rankin.  The petition can be found at
Regular updates from community groups will take place following Mr. Donnelly's presentation.  For further information please contact Beth McGee at 823-2245 or John Cascadden at 852-4886.
We hope you can join us for this important meeting.
Yours truly,
Afton Doubleday
Secretary, FBWHT
