Syar Napa Quarry Project

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 Drive).

This item 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.
