Cc: The Grand Concourse Authority and the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador.

PETITION FOR IMMEDIATE WORK STOPPAGE AND FULL PUBLIC DEBATE OF THE JOHNSON GEOLOGICAL PARK INITIATIVE IN ST. JOHNS, NL

WHEREAS the development of the Johnson Geological Park adjacent to Signal Hill National Historical Site has begun without meaningful public engagement or planning on part of the City of St. Johns, the province or the proponent, The Johnson Family Foundation. Specifically these parties have neglected to:

Engage the public/ stakeholders in consultation around the proposed project;

Submit for review and approval to the City of St. Johns a final comprehensive project plan for the project in question;

Perform a needs assessment for such a project, propose alternative locations for such a development and comprehensively evaluate the environmental, social, economic and cumulative impacts of the project in question.

Considering the above, we the undersigned call on the City of St. Johns, The Johnson Family Foundation and the provincial government to:

1. Immediately stop work on the Johnson Geological Park, until proper public and stakeholder consultation has occurred and all necessary planning and assessment processes are complete.

2. Initiate without delay, a full public consultation process to obtain the valuable input and feedback on a project of this magnitude and significance.

3. Assess and fully inventory the archaeological, cultural and biophysical significance of the site in question and if required perform provincial and federal environmental Impact assessment processes.
