We would like to thank members of the community who attended our open house on June 25, 2015 regarding our proposed quarry at 2287 Bay Lake Road and those who also provided comments. We value the input from the community and over the past year we have been working hard to address these comments by completing additional technical analysis and revising our proposed quarry design and final rehabilitation plan. The following is an update on the application and anticipated next steps. You are welcome to stop by our office and we would be happy to discuss our proposal.
