Carver Earth Removal Committee Public Hearing on Pontiff Earth Removal Permit
January 31 @ 7:00 pm
Make your voice heard!
Tell the ERC to DENY the earth removal permit for E.J. Pontiff Cranberry! This is not “cranberry agriculture” as Pontiff claims.
Pontiff wants to mine over 1 million cubic yards of sand and gravel from land zoned residential and agricultural at 104 Tremont Street in Carver. The prior owner, Federal Furnace Cranberry Co. did a massive earth removal operation here for at least 2.7 million cubic yards of sand! The 17-acre area Pontiff Cranberry wants to deforest and mine next is an area abuts Myles Standish State Forest and is home to local wildlife. The entire area is mapped as Core Habitat and Critical Natural Landscape. For the future of Carver it must be preserved!
