County to consider quarry permit change

June 27, 2007


Douglas County commissioners tonight will consider approval of a conditional-use permit for Big Springs Quarry, which is about two miles south of Big Springs on North 1700 Road.

A 30-year permit for the quarry that initially was issued in 1990 requires a review if there is a change in the quarry's operator. The operation is changing from Martin Marietta to Mid-States Materials LLC of Topeka.

The Lawrence-Douglas County Planning Commission and the county planning staff have recommended county commissioners approve the permit.

Commissioners will meet at 6:35 p.m. today on the second floor of the courthouse, 1100 Mass.
