Lyndon Township Officials To Discuss Gravel, Sand Mining Proposal Again Tonight

Mar 13, 2014

Lyndon Township's Planning Commission tonight continues discussions on a proposed gravel pit and sand mining operation.  About 200 people attended a meeting last month on a special land use request from McCoig Materials for a site on M-52 across from Green Lake.  

Township officials say they are limited on their ability to reject the proposal but most people who spoke at the last meeting opposed the project.  Chelsea officials have also raised objections because the operation would lead to up to 160 gravel haulers passing through their downtown per day. 

 Tonight's meeting starts at seven at the Washington Street Education Center in Chelsea.
