St. Cloud ZBA to hold public hearing on Coldspring quarry expansion
Residents in St. Cloud, Minnesota, will have the opportunity to discuss Coldspring’s proposed quarry expansion Tuesday night, when city’s Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) holds a public hearing on the quarry, according to a report from SCTimes.com.
The board is considering a conditional use permit that would allow Coldspring to open a 30-acre granite quarry and processing area on its 210-acre site, where it already operates a stone quarry. The permit would allow the company to excavate 300 to 350 feet in seven phases over 25 to 30 years.
Coldspring also wants to add a 16-acre pad for crushing equipment, conveyors, screens and stockpiles, as well as a new truck scale office of about 12 feet by 24 feet.
The St. Cloud City Council decided at its August 12 meeting that the proposed quarry’s environmental impact had been reviewed enough to move the proposal to the Zoning Board of Appeals. The city council had previously postponed the discussion.
Once the Zoning Board of Appeals decides whether to grant the permit, then the mayor, City Council or applicant can appeal the decision.
