Document Description
A Conditional Use Permit (CUP) to allow a surface mining operation and development of a reclamation plan in accordance with the Surface Mining and Reclamation Act (SMARA) of 1975. Request is to mine limestone and develop a comprehensive reclamation plan for project site disturbance associated with mining activities. The project site encompasses 280 acres on two parcels, totaling 1258 acres, both of which are subject to a Williamson Act Land Use Contract. As proposed, mining would disturb a total of approximately 125 acres, of which no more than 58 acres would ever be disturbed due to concurrent reclamation. The applicant estimates that between 250,000 and 1,000,000 tons of material would be removed per year. Total anticipated production of limestone and overburden/waste rock is estimated at 4.9 million tons and 1.3 million cubic yards, respectively. Maximum depth of excavation would be 195 feet. Crushing and stockpiling of mined material would occur on site; however all materials processed would be shipped off site for subsequent sale.
