Construct Buildings and Washrack at Vernon Military Camp

Several construction projects on the naturalized side of the camp are planned to start construction in April 2021. While it is likely not all of these projects requires an assessment, the others are added here because there is a potential that species at risk may use the area, and joint assessment allows for understanding of any cumulative impact.

An ablution building with a 100 m2 footprint will be constructed inside the footprint of a previously existing building. A storage and maintenance building for military vehicles with a 900 m2 footprint will be constructed directly across the road from currently utilized buildings in the same area. This building will include an associated 200 m2 roadway. The area this building will be placed into is currently mowed as a fire break and is not considered high quality habitat. The final project will include the installation of a new prefabricated industry provided vehicle washrack next to an existing building.

Latest update

May  20, 2022— The authorities issued the Notice of Determination and determined that the project is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects.
