Case Management Conference re Proposed Lippa Pit & Quarry

02 Dec 2019 4:29 PM | Tim Lutton (Administrator)

As advised in my last communique, a Case Management Conference (CMC) took place on Thursday, November 28 in Port Carling.  A big thank you to everyone that attended the CMC.  Once again, we filled the hearing room, a clear demonstration of the community’s continuing opposition to the quarry. 

For those that were unable to attend, the CMC was procedural in nature.  None of the substantive issues were discussed.  Instead, the following key points were discussed or agreed upon:

  • The Skeleton Lake Cottagers Organization (SLCO) and several others requested Party status on the second appeal; this will be decided at the next CMC.
  • 46 people requested and were granted Participant status on the second appeal.  It is proposed that SLCO’s lawyer will draft a joint statement that these participants may sign, although some  participants may prefer to prepare their own written submission. 

  • There was discussion about what rules govern the two appeals.
  • A list of issues is to be agreed to by the Township of Muskoka Lakes and Lippa prior to the next CMC.
  • The next CMC will occur on Wednesday March 25, 2020 in Port Carling.  It is scheduled to be in-person, but if sufficient progress has been made the parties could hold the CMC by conference call.

We will continue to keep you advised as more information becomes available.  In the interim, please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.  Again, thank you for the strong support at Thursday’s CMC.
