Vulcan’s Austin Quarry approved in 3-2 vote

Vulcan Materials’ planned Austin Quarry, CA, was approved by the Madera County Planning Commission in a 3-2 vote Wednesday, following hours of public comment.

The decision is all but assured to be appealed within a 15-day period, which would mandate discussion and vote by the Board of Supervisors in an expected several months.

Vulcan Materials Company first applied for the project in 2010.

Proponents of the project, including Vulcan employees, a representative of Madera Unified School District, and Madera County Economic Development Commission director Bobby Kahn said the quarry would bring in jobs and economic benefits for the county.

Vulcan-hired attorney Patrick Mitchell also spoke at the planning meeting about the many concessions Vulcan made to meet the county’s requirements for approval.
