Proposed land use change in Colorado city could allow gravel mine
A property owner in Loveland, Colorado, has asked the city to change the zoning to allow for sand and gravel mining at the site, according to the Loveland Reporter-Herald.
The 48-acre site was annexed into the city 30 years ago for a housing development, but the homes were never built.
Site owner Big Thompson Farms Group, which is associated with Loveland Ready Mix Concrete, has requested the city change the plan from “low-density residential” to “development reserve” and rezone 15 acres of the site from “developing low-density residential” to “developing resource.”
Kim Lambrecht, project manager at Landmark Engineering, told the Reporter-Herald that the company has no immediate plans to begin mining, and the requested changes are only one step in a long process.
