Summary of Environmental Assessment Process

  • Project Description: [The route for the proposed undertaking entering the City Limits of St. John's has been significantly changed by the proponent from the previous submission (Reg. 1209) to attempt to address environmental concerns or for other reasons.] The proponent proposes to construct approximately 42 kilometres of snowmobile trail from the City of St. John's to the Town of Holyrood, there connecting to the existing rail-bed and continuing west via the rail-bed to Goobies. The proposed trail will be 5 metres wide.
