The Municipality of Meaford is pleased to announce the adoption of the Terms of Reference for the Pumped Storage Advisory Committee (PSAC).

“We look forward to launching the Pumped Storage Advisory Committee to ensure transparency and community involvement in the decision-making process,” said Mayor Ross Kentner. “It is vital that Council hears from a wide variety of residents with different perspectives on the project as it progresses through the environmental assessment and approval process.”

The PSAC will provide a platform for collaborative learning and informed decision-making for TC Energy’s proposed Pumped Storage Project. Committee members will explore community interests and concerns and provide advice to Council. Meetings will be held monthly, and will be open to members of the public.

The PSAC will consist of nine public members, who must be eligible voters in the Municipality of Meaford, and two non-voting Council members. The Municipality is keen to ensure that the committee membership includes people with different opinions on the proposed project who are willing to work together to ensure the best possible outcome for the community. Residents can still apply to be on the committee until Friday, March 15. Further details on the PSAC, including the Terms of Reference and how to apply can be found at www.meaford.ca/appointments.
