Syar Napa Quarry Project
Staff will be
requesting that this item be dropped from the
April 1, 2015 Planning Commission hearing so that it can be re-noticed to a
future special evening meeting: the future meeting day and time have not yet
been confirmed. This request
has been predicated by direction from the Planning Commission and concerns from
the public that a night meeting be held on this matter. This request will also
allow recent project modifications proposed by Syar Incorporated to be
adequately incorporated into the evaluation of the project.
Staff is encouraging commenters that want
to address the Commission directly do so at the future special hearing that is
specifically arranged for this project.
Napa County has completed a Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR)
analyzing the potential environmental impacts of the Syar Napa Quarry Expansion
project, which provides for an approximate 124-acre expansion of the surface
mining and reclamation plan associated with aggregate processing, production,
and sales. The project would expand the existing 497-acre Syar Napa Quarry and
allow mining to continue for a 35 year term, including an increase in the mining
depth from between approximately 300 feet and 150 feet above mean sea level
(msl) to no greater than 50 feet above msl, and an increase in sales of
aggregate and aggregate related materials from current levels of approximately
1 million tons per year up to approximately 2 million tons per year. The Syar
Napa Quarry project site is located on the east side of State Highway 221 at
its intersection with Basalt Road (between Kaiser Road and Streablo
has been continued to the April 1, 2015, Napa County Planning Commission
Hearing. On January 7, 2015, a public hearing was conducted by the
Planning Commission to consider the FEIR and associated Surface Mining Permit.
The Commission continued the item to February 18, 2015 and at that hearing the
Planning Commission, at the request of staff, continued the item to the April
1st hearing to allow staff additional
time to evaluate and respond to comments received on the project. At the April
1st hearing staff will be
requesting the Planning Commission drop this item from the agenda so it can be
re-noticed to a future special evening meeting.
