Re: “People 1, Crabtree Quarry 0

This quarry was rejected because each member of the Planning Commission, after months of study, saw that there were no real benefits. They also cited the inconsistency with the Comprehensive Plan and surrounding development next to the residentially-zoned parcel. The opponents of the quarry laid out a reasoned case showing the harm to surrounding neighborhoods and the complete lack of benefits.

In addition, the three main public hearings drew 200, 215, and 400 opponents. The final number was described by the mayor as the largest crowd he has seen at the City Council in ten years.

A quarry victory would have set the precedent that residentially zoned land can be changed to industrial to serve a narrow interest. Thankfully for residents across the city, the Council recognized the folly of the request.
