Vulcan Materials has gained approval from Concord City Council for a a rezoning request for 66.875 acres that will allow Vulcan to expand it operation, reports the Independent Tribune.
The rezoning request was approved at a recent Concord City Council meeting after a public hearing. During the public hearing no one opposed the rezoning change.
The property was annexed into the Concord city limits at the council’s meeting in March, and afterward officials had to designate a zoning for the property. The rezoning affected two parcels consisting of approximately 66.875 acres. The parcels are located adjacent to Vulcan’s existing quarry on the east side of Trail Road, northwest of Goodman Road.
Vulcan Materials Company officials requested the property be designated Heavy Industrial (I-2) for the purpose of expanding its existing quarry and dirt storage.
The smaller parcel, which is almost 2 acres, was zoned Cabarrus County Countryside Residential. The larger parcel, which is roughly 65 acres, was zoned Cabarrus County Office-Institutional District.
Now that the rezoning has been approved, Vulcan can move forward on expanding their operations.
