Madera Quarry Approved…Again
August 24th, 2010
On June 15, 2010, the Madera County Board of Supervisors approved the Madera Quarry Project. The Board previously approved the project in 2006. Opposed by neighbors on the grounds of groundwater, noise, and traffic concerns, the project was bounced through the Courts, and the County issued a Revised EIR in December 2004. The Revised EIR, prepared by Benchmark Resources, focused on a narrow range of opponent complaints. Nonetheless, project opponents that originally litigated again filed suit.
