Utica sand mine hearing to be held at elementary school

Posted by wlpo on December 19, 2011

Sand mining has been in La Salle County for generations but a more recent use for the good has a company wanting to create a mine near Utica.

Illinois Sand Company, LLC is asking the village for zoning variances, special uses and annexation.  You can learn more about the proposal and share your thoughts during a hearing Tuesday evening.

The Utica planning commission meets at 7pm to hear about the permits.  Following that the Board of Trustees will join in to talk about the annexation agreement.  Then the village board will go into a special session to discuss it.

Because a large crowd is expected, the meeting is being held inside the elementary school.
