Good news! Mobilization of the Rose Country Inn site is expected to take place February 25th, provided that all permits from ATCO and OH&S are in place. If there is a delay with the permits, mobilization of the site will begin on March 3. Demolition is expected to take approximately 2 weeks.
A 30 m buffer zone for demolition is required for hazmat monitoring, so the City will likely be closing the alley, side street and front street during this process. More information will be posted shortly.
If you have health concerns related to the confirmed asbestos at the site, please read the following information:
Taking the above information into account, very little concern exists for the public’s health. However, our local Public Health Inspector (Gordon Watt) is aware of the community’s concerns related to the asbestos on-site and is happy to speak further with anyone who would like more information.
