A controversial quarry expansion project reappeared last week on the City Council agenda.
The Council again voted to send a curative amendment request from York Building Products regarding property at 1072 Roosevelt Drive before the city’s planning commission and also voted to hold a public hearing on the project at a later date.
Developers are requesting that a 16-acre tract of land be re-zoned from residential to “employment center” to allow for an increase in mining operations.
The planning commission will hear the case at 7 p.m. Sept. 9 at 101 South George Street. A date for the public hearing before City Council has not yet been set.
Plans were withdrawn after residents in The Avenues expressed concern over increased truck traffic and more blasting in the area.
“That’s just not the case. That wouldn’t happen,” Joe Musso, a planning consultant for the company, told the York Daily Record in March.
Musso said the proposed change only would allow for a six percent quarry expansion.
