Indiana Supreme Court declines to hear Rogers quarry proposal

The Indiana Supreme Court will not hear legal arguments over Rogers stone quarry proposal, reports Attorneys for Rogers Group and Tippecanoe County both asked the court to hear the case.

Rogers Group tried to get approval for the quarry in 2014, which triggered a community backlash. The Tippecanoe County commissioners passed an ordinance banning mining within two miles of 100 homes, which blocked the  Americus quarry.

The Rogers Group then sued unsuccessfully. It went to the Court of Appeals, which upheld half the lower court ruling and revoked the other half. The Appeals Court ruled the county’s ordinance was invalid, but did uphold the Tippecanoe County Board of Zoning Appeals’ special exception required for mining operations in a flood plain.

Both sides then asked the Indiana Supreme Court to hear the case. The Supreme Court declined early this month.

Rogers Group attorney Chris Shelman would not comment on the company’s next move.
