Syar Phase VI - Use Permit Amendment and ARM Plan Amendment - PLP03-0108
NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
Present Land Use
Land Intensive Agriculture (LIA) 20 and 40 acre density.
The applicant has proposed a five-year extension of the time to mine the Phase VI terrace mining area. The five-year extension will allow Syar to provide high quality sand and gravel materials to the building industry from local source, while providing more time for the development of alternative sources of high-end aggregate. Syar estimates that approimately 1.5 million tons of material will remain in the Phase VI mining area at the April 15, 2006 expiration date identified in the current Phase VI terrace pit. The material to be mined will be extracted from the terrace pit using a dragline. Syar intends to remove an average of 300,000 to 500,000 tons per year. At this removal rate, Syar believes it will be able to better ensure that this aggregate material will be used only for higher end uses. The Conditons of Approval included in the approval for PLP03-0046 will continue to apply during the extended mining period. Other conditons of approval may be added as appropriate. Aggregate material removed from Phase VI terrace pit will be hauled to the processing area as approved for PLP03-0046. Given the limited amount of material to be produced annually, no stockpiling would occur on the west side of the Russian River during the proposed extension period.
