The next meeting of the Town of Superior Community Working Group (CWG) will be held Wednesday, April 11, at 6 p.m. in the Superior Chamber of Commerce meeting room.
The group will begin a discussion of how to preserve the community’s historic mining legacy when the smelter stack and associated West Plant buildings are demolished. The group will also view a simulation of the Resolution Copper Mine site subsidence.
The CWG includes residents and stakeholders from the Town of Superior, Queen Valley, Hewitt Station, Globe, the San Carlos Community and around the area. The group deals with the social and environmental issues, science and policy, and the pros and cons of the proposed Resolution Copper Project. Topics include environmental impacts, health, safety, natural resource issues, engineering, water quantity and quality, geology, economics, air quality, community investments, recreational changes and other related subjects.
Meetings are held at the Superior Chamber of Commerce at 165 W. Main St., Superior, from 6-8 p.m., most often on the second Wednesday of each month. The public is welcome, and time is reserved on the agenda for everyone’s comments, questions and discussion.
