The possible expansion of Custom Stone’s quarry in Sister Bay, Door County, Wisconsin, is heading back to court.
The Sister Bay Village Board has unanimously voted to not approve an amendment for a conditional use permit. This effectively ends the mediation effort between the village and quarry owners.
About 75 people packed a public hearing on the matter Tuesday evening with the majority voicing strong opposition to the expansion.
The quarry will continue to operate. Many residents have complained the quarry should not exist within the village limits and does not meet current zoning code.
The owners of Custom Stone did not speak at Tuesday’s hearing but have said an expansion, along with shallow surface mining, would eliminate many concerns expressed by the village, including dust and noise pollution.
