Planning commission to discuss establishing quarry in Coffee County

The Coffee County Planning Commission will discuss Sept. 22 rezoning parts of Coffee County to allow establishing a rock quarry in the area. Hawkins Asphalt Paving is the company requesting the zoning change.

The company requested a zoning change earlier this year. Residents protested and county officials voted to deny changing the zoning.

Residents have again started a petition to oppose the quarry.

The meeting today begins at 4:30 p.m. at the Coffee County Administrative Plaza. Usually, the capacity of the boardroom is 186; however, with the pandemic still ongoing, the capacity will be 50%, or about 90.
