Syar Napa Quarry Project

On September 2, 2015, a continued public hearing was conducted by the Napa County Planning Commission to consider the Final Environmental Impact Report (EIR) and associated Surface Mining Permit for the proposed project.  Immediately prior to the hearing, extensive comments and technical reports were received on the project.  After taking additional testimony and submittal of additional comments, the Commission continued the item to the October 21, 2015, hearing to provide staff and the consultant additional time to adequately evaluate and respond to the numerous comments received and testimony given on the adequacy of the proposed Final EIR.  The October 21st hearing will be held at 1:30 PM at the County Administration Building, 1195 Third Street, Suite 305.

At the October 21st hearing it is anticipated that the Planning Commission will consider certification of the Final EIR and the merits of the proposed quarry expansion and Associated Surface Mining Permit (SMP).

Prior to taking an action on the proposed SMP for the Syar Napa Quarry Expansion Project, the Planning Commission is required to review and consider the Final EIR and to certify that the Final EIR has been prepared in compliance with CEQA, the State CEQA Guidelines, and the County's Local Procedures for Implementing CEQA.

Project Location: The Syar Napa Quarry project site is located on the east side of State Highway 221 at its intersection with Basalt Road which is between Kaiser Road and Streblow Drive.
