NVCA Confirms Investigation Into Roxodus Site Work

Work done on the land to be used for defunct concert under scrutiny

Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority has questions into work done on environmentally sensitive lands in Clearview Township.

The NVCA confirms to Barrie 360 that there is an investigation ongoing that has to do with preparations ahead of the cancelled Roxodus Music Festival.

Work on the site occurred without prior NVCA permits, and we are dealing with the matter as a non-compliance issue. As this is an ongoing investigation, we are unable to comment further.

Reports indicate that work had begun in the winter on the land east of the Edenvale Aerodrome. A parking lot, camping zone, main stage and vendor area were in the plans.

The NVCA claims as much as 10 hectares of the wetlands were either cleared, filled, or drained in preparation for the festival.

Depending on the result of the investigation there could be fines and charges.

Calls to representatives with Simcoe County were not returned.
