No to Cemex Florida mine

Lake County Commissioners have voted 3-2 against a sand mine that Cemex proposes in the Four Corners area, Forida, south of Clermont and northwest of Disney World.

A zoning board also recommended the plan be denied.

Most neighbors, who came to the comissioners meeting by the busload, were farmers worried about dust or homeowners concerned about noise from the mine, which would operate around the clock for the next 30 years have trucks hauling 160 loads of product per day.

Cemex said the only thing people would notice is a $5 million economic impact.”The fact of the matter is this application is great for the county,” said Cemex spokeswoman Sara Endghal.

“It’s a finite resource located right here in the county that can go to build important infrastructure projects here in the region.”

Lake County landowners have refused to sell any land to Cemex to build a road to US 27.

The company was also hit with an unexpected roadblock Tuesday from Orange County Commissioners, who voted to prohibit heavy vehicles from traveling on Schofield Road.
