UR 19-83/2005, OA 1-2007, & R 4-2011 (Harris Quarry Expansion Project)
Document Type
NOD - Notice of Determination
Document Description
The project consists of: (1) amendments to the County Zoning Ordinance creating a new Mineral Processing Combining District to the County's zoning ordinance to allow for asphalt processing to occur onsite; (2) a concurrent rezone adding the combining district to an 18-acre portion of the project site to accommodate the proposed asphalt facility; (3) a Use Permit Renewal/ Modification (UR 19-83/2005) for 30 years to allow expansion of the quarry, extraction of up to 200,000 in-place cubic yards of material per year, production of up to 150,000 tons of asphalt per year from the processed material, and nighttime operations that could occur up to 100 nights per year; and (4) an associated revised Reclamation Plan for the quarry site. The proposed project would allow the applicant to continue to mine the existing quarry and expand the quarry to the north and west. In all, the existing 11.5-acre quarry would be expanded to a final size of about 30.6 acres. An additional 9.2 acres would be developed for access and processing, and 5.1 acres would be disturbed to provide mitigation proposed to address project impacts. Quarrying would use the same techniques and equipment currently used at the site. See NOD for full details.
