The Greater Masset Development Corporation will meet Wednesday (Dec. 7) at 7 pm at the Old Massett Community Hall for its annual general meeting. The GMDC board has engaged Pacific Environmental Consulting to conduct testing at the old Canadian Forces Station site in Masset before any demolition can take place. After contacting Pacific Environmental, the Observer has learned the consulting group was in Masset for two-days last week. Next, Pacific Environmental will assess the site for hazardous materials and create a job plan, at which point the GMDC will put demolishing of the barracks to tender. However, there is no timeline for this process. It’s been a full year since GMDC called for bids to demolish some of the buildings. If community members want any information regarding the status of the demolition, they can attend the annual meeting Wednesday and ask GMDC members. The Observer made phone calls to the Village of Masset and the Old Massett Village Council in an effort to obtain information regarding the meeting. Officials either said they were unable to talk about the agenda or did not return our phone calls.
