Quarry meeting July 18 at Steel Shed
Martin Marietta Materials has scheduled a community meeting regarding its request for rezoning to “heavy industrial” of about 196 acres at the Jamestown facility (Georgetown II Quarry).
The meeting will be held on Thursday, July 18. They will begin with visits/tours of the quarry around 4 and then meet at the Steel Shed in Jamestown at around 5 or 5:30. The public is invited.
This meeting is a result of a request made by the Berkeley County Planning Commission at its June 25meeting. The Commission will again take up the matter of the request for rezoning for the quarry property at its next regular meeting on Tuesday, July 23 beginning at 6 p.m. in the Assembly Room.
The Planning Commission will report on the zoning request to Berkeley County Council, which will make a final decision on the matter. Contact the Quarry at 257-4545 for more information.
