Document Description
Mitigated Negative Declaration for the following project: A request by Jane Buffuna and Jon Negranti for approval of a Reclamation Plan Amendment / Minor Use Permit (DRC2007-00016) for the Whale Rock Quarry (Mine ID #91-40-0010) to cover an expanded mining area within a 229.73-acre area of vested mining rights on a parcel totaling 234 acres (APN 046-201-028 & 073-093-008). The proposed Reclamation Plan Amendment will result in reclamation-related activities on mined or disturbed area over a total of approximately 82 acres (19 acres already disturbed and 63 acres to be disturbed following approval of the RPA). Reclamation will occur concurrently with extractive operations as final contours are reached; mining is proposed in four phases spanning approximately 200 years, with Final Reclamation of the mining area anticipated to be completed by 2220. The proposed project is within the Agriculture land use category and is located at 1424 Old Creek Road, approximately 1.3 miles northeast of the community of Cayucos. The site is within the Adelaida Sub-Area of the North County Planning Area.
