Preliminary plans are underway to rehabilitate the former Lilyfield Quarry, now owned by Bel Acres Golf & Country Club.

Bel Acres owner Ian Sarna and general manager Steve Wood spoke at the RM of Rosser council meeting on Dec. 17, 2013 about their vision for the quarry.

"We’d like to rehabilitate it and make it safer," Wood said, when contacted after the meeting.

The quarry is located on 240 acres of land east of the golf course on Sturgeon Road. In October 2011, Sarna’s application to reopen the limestone quarry was denied by the municipal council.

Wood said they will have to make another official application to get municipal approval before any work begins. He wasn’t able to provide a cost for the rehabilitation work.

While the former quarry could become a recreation area, Wood said, the first priority is to increase safety and keep trespassers out.
