Cemex wins rezoning for Ohio quarry

Cemex has got the OK to expand its mining operation, near Fairborn Ohio, after several failed attempts.

The city council late Monday night overruled an earlier city planning board decision and granted Cemex rezoning of two Xenia Twp. parcels.

The decision allows the cement company to use the land just 250 feet from residential properties on West Enon and West Hyde Roads as mineral quarries.

Company officials at a public hearing at Fairborn city offices on Monday night reassured residents that while they will hear and feel the blasts from excavation work, company practices are controlled and safe and will cause no damage to their properties.

“Cemex is committed and has an excellent track record in safely extracting these much needed resources and being responsible for not only the safety of our own employees, but the communities in which we operate,” said Sara Engdahl, Cemex USA communications director.

But residents living near the land aren’t buying the company line. “We all know what that’s going to do to our property values; We all know what that’s going to do to our peace of mind; We all know what that’s going to do to our quality of life – and none of it’s good,” Xenia Twp resident Jan Smolinski said.
