December Ends with No Construction


At the end of November McMaster's Director of Parking and Security told me that construction to create the 30 metre naturalized buffer would begin in December, and planting in the spring. A visit to the site today reveals that while no parking spots have been removed from the edge of Lot M along Ancaster Creek, some equipment to do the job is in place (unconfirmed assumption - rk).

I hope to be there to get some time-lapse images when the construction starts. This is an important phase in a realigning of our values to better reflect care and concern for the health of the natural world. Removing parking to bring back a cleaner and healthier Ancaster Creek is a small but significant step in the right direction: Kudos to McMaster for doing the right thing.
