Planners approve Croell Redi-Mix quarry near Mount Rushmore

Some of America’s most famous presidents could soon be overlooking a new aggregate operation: Croell Redi-Mix is hoping to expand its Perli Quarry into the newly approved land.

According to the Rapid City Journal, Pennington County planners approved a plan to build a limestone quarry in a scenic area on the main route to Mount Rushmore National Memorial despite opposition.

Opponents of the plan have already filed a petition against Pennington County’s decision, and more than 100 local residents came out to the Planning Commission meeting to voice their opposition to the new quarry.

Some oppositions said the new quarry would be bad for traffic, while others were concerned the views of the scenic Black Hills could be ruined.

The quarry would be operating on 164 acres if the Pennington County Planning Commission’s decision holds up. The County Commissioners will hold a hear hearing on the appeal March 2.
