Planning Commission to Consider Permit for Mica Mine Load-Out

A request for a Conditional Use Permit (CUP) for a stockpile and load-out area at a mica mine in western Fremont County will be considered by the Fremont County Planning Commission at their July monthly meeting next Tuesday.

Bill Tezak of Colorado Quarries is seeking the CUP for offsite stockpiling of mica, silica, and granite taken from the existing Mica White Mine site at Wellsville.   The 33.6 acre site for the proposed CUP would be leased from the Bureau of Land Management.   4.6 acres would actually be used for the stockpile and load-out area.   The property is located on the north side of Fremont County Road #45.   The existing stockpile and load-out area has been in use for a number of years.

The only other item of business for the Planning Commission is consideration of a two lot minor subdivision in the Penrose area.   Leslie and Carol Wilson propose the Meadowlark Ridge subdivision two-lot split on 9 acres of property at 645 ‘D’ Street in Penrose.   One lot houses a shed with a proposed lot size of 4 ½ acres.   The other lot would house an existing single family dwelling that sits on 4.6 acres.    Both lots would be accessed from ‘D” Street.

The Fremont County Planning Commission meets at 4:00 p.m. Tuesday, July 1st in Room LL-3 on the lower level of the Fremont County Administration Building.
