About Our Newsletter and Website

Being a good neighbour means doing our part to keep you informed about what’s happening with Aldershot East, the third phase of the Aldershot Quarry project.

Meridian Brick has launched this newsletter and new website (aldershotquarry.ca) to collect and communicate as much information as possible on the project directly to our neighbours. Here, you’ll find updates on the project, information on a wide range of studies, and facts about both the project and Meridian Brick.

When the Tyandaga West subdivision was first proposed, Meridian Brick – then Canada Brick – agreed to implement various controls to ensure that the subdivision would be compatible with the existing quarry. We’re standing by that commitment to be a good neighbour, and we’re doing our part to ensure the East cell project proceeds with a minimum of impact for neighbours and residents.

As this project moves along, Meridian will continue to engage with residents about the project. Finalized studies will come out and new meetings will be held as we do our best to listen to residents’ concerns and opinions.

That’s why we feel it’s important to issue this newsletter and create a website with current information. We’ve heard from many of our neighbours over the past several months. We want to give all of our neighbours the opportunity to hear the answers to their questions, direct from us. You’ll learn about the studies addressing elements of the project. You’ll learn about the history of the Aldershot Quarry and the steps Meridian has taken to develop the property in harmony with the community. And you’ll learn about the history of Meridian in Burlington and the stories of the people who have been part of the Meridian Brick family, many of them for decades.

We hope you will find our newsletter informative and useful, and we hope you will remain engaged with the Aldershot East project going forward.
