County offers workshop, opens hearings on quarry
Lehigh Southwest Cement Company’s proposed reclamation plan amendment is scheduled for a 10 a.m. Thursday public hearing before members of the Santa Clara County Planning Commission in the Board of Supervisors Chambers, 70 W. Hedding St. in San Jose. Also up for approval is a final environmental impact report.
If necessary, the commission will reconvene the hearing 5:30 p.m. May 31 in the Board of Supervisors Chambers.
Lehigh officials said the plan would reclaim more than 630 acres of the 3,500-acre site, located just south of Los Altos and Los Altos Hills in the Cupertino foothills. Opponents point to repeated air and water violations.
The final EIR is available online, and hard copies may be obtained by writing the County Planning Office, 70 W. Hedding St., East Wing, 7th Floor, San Jose 95110.
