The Temecula City Council finally took a formal stand against a proposed mining quarry at the city's southern border.
On Tuesday night, Council members unanimously approved to file an opposition against Liberty Quarry because of concerns about the noise and health concerns tied to the project.
Granite Construction has proposed building a mine at the Riverside-San Diego county line. The project has been with Riverside County for years and is finally moving toward environmental hearings. The commission will host two environmental hearings.
The city staff report stated the environmental report issued for the project is biased and misleads with facts and is full of errors.
Speakers implored the City Council to take a stand against Liberty Quarry.
Temecula resident Wayne Hall said all residents will feel the blasting and suffer from the dust coming from the quarry.
"I am so adamantly against this rock quarry. For every inch you move you have to blast," Hall said.
