Supreme Court rules in favor of Vulcan mining project in Virginia
The Supreme Court of Virginia last week ruled in favor of Caroline County’s Board of Supervisors in a lawsuit involving a planned mining project from Vulcan Materials, according to Fredricksburg.com.
Justice LeRoy F. Millette Jr. on June 6 affirmed a 2012 ruling by Circuit Judge Joseph Ellis, who concluded that a river advocacy group and a group of concerned citizens and landowners did not have legal standing to argue against the Board of Supervisors’ 2011 decision to grant Vulcan a special-exception permit to mine sand and some gravel at 541-acre Black Marsh Farms property near the Rappahannock River.
The decision will allow for the project to proceed, though no start date has been announced.
