Cemex Florida plant expansion delayed

Cemex has postponed discussion of a proposed mining expansion north of Brooksville, Florida, until December 9.

The expansion proposal was slated to go before the county commission Tuesday but Cemex asked for more time to prepare a presentation to help address concerns from residents and county staff.

James Morris, manager of aggregate resources with Cemex, said the company plans a computer-generated simulation of what motorists would see where the mining will take place.

Planning and zoning board members last month shot down Cemex’s request to amend the county’s future land use map on a 730-acre tract. They determined that the expansion was inconsistent with the comprehensive plan.

Critics of the expansion, many of whom live near the mining expansion area, fear noise and pollution from the expanded plant. Cemex officials said residents’ fears are groundless and plan to address them before the December meeting.
