Document Description
The proposed project would expand the Twentynin Palms Sand and Gravel Surface Mining Facility from 113.5 acres to 469.5 acres. The proposed project affects 356 acres and includes a request for a General Plan Amendmentm and rezoning of 320 acres from RL 2.5, Rural Living, to CI, Community Industrial. Approximately 1/2 of the project site (178 acres) would be actively mined incrementally in planned phases, while the other half would be set aside for permanent wildlife habitat conservation. Mining currently takes place at the existing facility at an estimated annual rate of 330,000 tons per year and would increase to 450,000 tons per year by mining the additional 178 acres. Reclamation would be unirrigated open space, retention basin for flood control and habitat. The project requires a Statutory Development Agreement, Conditional Use Permit, and Reclamation Plan.
