Canyon Rock and Mountain View Ranches plan quarries for South Dakota

Canyon Rock and Mountain View Ranches have applied  to establish small-scale rock quarries in t Lawrence County, SD.

Charles Edwards, doing business as Canyon Rock LLC, has applied for a conditional-use permit that would allow him to operate a small quarry on property he owns near Exit 2 of Interstate 90. The proposed quarry will not exceed 10 acres,  according to Lawrence County Planning & Zoning director Amber Vogt.

The second conditional-use applicant, Mountain View Ranches, seeks a quarry permit for 192 acres off Crook City Road, although the company would be allowed to operate on only 10 acres at a time, Vogt said. The proposed quarry is near a large existing gravel pit, she said.

Requests to operate quarries are relatively rare, and Lawrence County had only received two such applications in the past decade, Vogt said. Once the seven-member board discusses the projects, it is likely to set public hearings on the applications for April 7, she said.

Fewer than 20 older pits exist in the county, she said.
