Of neighbors and organizations presented material which not Only questions the expansion proposed by Rocky Mountain materials inc., but also the legality of the pits current operations.

Elpaso county a Board of commissioners approved the code in october. Commissioner Douglas Bruce opposed the code Tollinghi colleagues that the code disenfranchised owners and decreased the value of the pre-1976 manufactured Mobile Homes. Was grandfathered in. The question Himme Liecht said arises from the written zoning discussions which indicate that if a special use operation is discontinued for More than one year it is deemed abandoned and cannot be resumed. In an annual state report dated oct. 3, 2001, the county documented that there had not been any activity at the pit for three years. A there is not much evidence that the pit was Active until 2004,�?� Himme Liecht explained.
