High Park Farms Update December 7, 2018

We’re pleased to provide an update on High Park’s plans to develop enclosed veg houses at our facility.  These plans have been initiated in response to community feedback and action to further mitigate light from the facility.

 

In the growing process, plants go through two distinct phases: flower and veg.  The flower stage requires 12 hours of light per day and veg stage requires 17 hours of light.  While the greenhouse plants are in the veg state, they will be completely enclosed in the new veg houses.

 

The enclosed veg houses are scheduled to be operational spring 2019.  Design is currently underway and regulatory applications for the changes will follow prior to the commencement of construction.

 

We’re committed to our community and value the ongoing feedback and support.  We can always be reached at questions@highparkcompany.com

 

 

 

Ministry of Transportation and Waze making Ontario 511 even better

The Ministry of Transportation of Ontario has partnered with Waze, the world’s largest community based traffic and navigation app, to make it even easier for Ontario travelers to plan their journeys.

Ontario 511 now publishes crowd-sourced information from Waze such as collisions, congestion, and driving hazards online at Ontario.ca/511.  This information, combined with ministry-reported data on road conditions, construction, closures, and forecast weather conditions, that will give people a more complete picture when planning their journey.

Waze provides real-time, anonymous, user and app-generated incident and traffic information to its government partners through its Connected Citizen Program, in exchange, Ontario 511 provides Waze access to its public data on road construction, incidents and closures.  Together, Ontario 511 and Waze create one of the most thorough overviews of current road conditions available to people travelling in Ontario.

Open Air Burning Notification/Application

During the spring time of year, many tree branches and brush piles accumulate in rural areas.  The Township of Enniskillen requires that if you do need to burn brush, wood, etc.,  you must contact the municipal office for an “Open Air Burning Notification/Application”. The applicant will be asked a few questions, regarding the date of the proposed burn and time of the proposed burn.  Burning is only allowed on farm premises and only between the hours of 8:00 am and 6:00 pm.  All fires to be extinguished before dark.

According to a local news broadcast, an outside brush fire is to blame for a structure fire in a nearby municipality last evening.  The property owner lost a drive shed due to the building being fully engulfed in flames.  Please make sure that if you do obtain a burn permit, that you take care and control of the burn and have means of extinguisher available to control the burn (i.e. backhoe, tractor, shovel, extinguisher, etc)
