Also, a big thank you to all the speakers at the commissioners meeting. Everyone can’t be named that has contributed to the organization and got us to this point, so thank you everyone. Our efforts to stop the stone quarry are paying off. Even if you are just attending meetings and showing your support. Every small effort is very encouraging.
Countless hours have been put in by the extended team.
Following are local news articles covering the commissioners meeting:
We will begin preparing for the August 27 Board of Zoning Appeals meeting. Rogers Group on Friday re-filed a modified application for a quarry special exception from the county board of zoning appeals.
The fight isn’t over, but we’ve come a long way!
