Document Description
The proposed project is the expansion of an existing sand and gravel surface mine and related aggregates processing facility. The project site is 215 acres in size. The existing permit was approved in January 1976, and will expire in 2008. The expansion proposes to add approximately 50 acres to the 121 acres currently approved for excavation, and to extend the life of the mine by 27 years. Additionally, the project proposes to recycle inert construction waste and revise the reclamation plan to incorporate groundwater recharge. The project is proposed to be implemented over approximately 35 years (including the 27 year extension). The project proposes a 5,900 square foot metal storage building and a 5,900 sf metal shop building. Concurrently, the applicant has submitted an application to amend the Riverside County Comprehensive General Plan and to change the zone of a 17.7-acre portion of the property to be consistent with the General Plan designation and the zoning on the balance of the property, and with the proposed use.
