Alberta Environment and Parks
(AEP) is currently in the process of streamlining its business case design for sand and gravel projects to create an approval process that is transparent, fair, and efficient. The RMA has been engaged with AEP and the Alberta Sand and Gravel Association
(ASGA) on this issue. To this point, discussions have focused on municipal processes for aggregate applications and how AEP and municipalities can increase efficiency, transparency, and create a fair process for aggregate applications.
RMA has created a survey
to gain a better understanding of the processes members use for applications. The feedback collected from this survey will help frame and guide RMA’s position and bring the municipal perspective to these engagement sessions.
The RMA will be participating in ongoing engagement with AEP in mid-November and encourages feedback to be submitted in before November 16, 2020. The survey
will remain open until November 30, 2020 and RMA staff will update the feedback once received.
