The city crews have blocked off the parking lot next to the RCMP station and the Ball fields. The parking lot is being paved over not with new asphalt but recycled asphalt from a highway repair area. The material has gone through a grinder and is laid out without new oil and rolled  untill it has a flat and usable appearance. The parking lot at the local kin park was done in this way a few years ago and has proven durable for the speeds and loads it was subjected to by the picnicking public.

Thats one for the Canadian Eco footprint.
