SPECIAL USE
SUNDANCE RESOURCES - LAFARGE

This is a request by Lafarge (Applicant) and Sundance Investments (Land Owner) for approval of a Special Use for mineral and natural resource extraction of sand and gravel. The mining will take place on a 514 acre parcel between the Union Pacific railroad tracks and Fountain Creek. A portion of a second, smaller parcel to the north, consisting of a total of 64.35 acres, will be used for a scale house and access improvements. The site is located adjacent to the southern boundary of the City of Fountain, is zoned RR-5 (Residential Rural) and I-2 (Limited Industrial), and is in the El Paso County Central Comprehensive Plan (1988) area.
