Project Description: The applicant seeks after-the-fact and prospective approval for a greater-than-25% expansion of the following preexisting uses: a commercial sand and gravel extraction, a mineral extraction (quarry) and industrial uses. The sand and gravel extraction was previously expanded to its current size of 16.4 acres. It is not proposed to be further expanded except for the removal of sand and gravel that may lie over the mineral extraction area. The mineral extraction was previously expanded to its current size of 37.4 acres. It is to be expanded by an additional 30acres initially and ultimately involve the entire 130 acre project site. Expanded industrial uses consist of material processing (crushing, screening, washing, and cutting), and hot mix asphalt production. Total reserves are estimated to be 40 million cubic yards of material. An average of 210,000 cubic yards (maximum 900,000 cubic yards) of material is to be extracted annually. Projected truck traffic will average 102 loaded trips per day (maximum 419 loaded trips per day). The project will normally operate during all seasons except for the winter months. Operations are to be from Monday through Saturday. Daily hours of operation are variable depending upon the activity. Some activities will start as early as 4:00 a.m. and operate until 6:00 p.m. Blasting, however, will only occur between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
