Two Michigan townships to consider quarry site plans
Two township planning commissions in Michigan will meet this week to consider site plans for U.S. Silica’s proposed new sand quarry off Telegraph Road near the towns of Ash and Berlin, Monroe News reported.
The Berlin Township Planning Commission will meet today at 7:30 p.m. at Jefferson North Elementary School. The Ash commission will meet Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. at the township hall.
Following the meetings, the commissions’ recommendations will go to their respective township boards, which will make the final decision.
The proposed quarry would be located on a 120-acre L-shaped site bordered by Telegraph, Armstrong, Dauncey and Carleton-Rockwood Roads. U.S. Silica would mine about 90 acres.
The quarry is expected to affect about 150 nearby homes.
If approved, the earliest open date for the quarry would be in 2014, with hours of operation 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and 7 a.m. to 12 p.m. Saturdays.
Both commissions have previously postponed two earlier meetings about the quarry due to a request from company officials who wanted more time to prepare the plan to show to neighbors.
