Studies on the Nyon Oil Inc. Port Colborne Energy Park should be available early next week for public perusal.

The company’s various consultant studies were scheduled to be provided to the city on Tuesday, leaving time for the public to examine them and ready their questions, concerns and comments.

The reports are expected to be available online at www.portcolborne.ca early next week. As the documents may be provided by Nyon only in hard copy, it may take city staff some time to convert the documents to electronic files, said Port Colborne chief administrative officer Bob Heil.

“We want to make everything as accessible as we can,” he said, and keep the process “as open and transparent as council promised.”

The three-week Ontario Municipal Board hearing on the proposed energy park is scheduled for September.

The city pushed for the studies to be available well in advance to allow residents to become informed of the company’s plans.

Nyon has retained consultants to do specific reviews of issues affecting development of the proposed energy park. These issues have and will continue to have impacts on the layout of the proposed development’s components and their location on site.

The city has requested that Nyon host a public presentation to detail the project’s evolution, including a final concept plan, on Wednesday, June 13, in council chambers.

The company will be required to send notice of the meeting to about 300 people who have signed up to be informed of advancements in the matter, and to have the meeting advertised in local newspapers, Heil said.
