Stopping a Strip Mine

Feb 27, 2020
The Glenwood Springs area community is standing together in opposition to a proposed expansion of the Transfer Trail limestone quarry. Rocky Mountain Resources Industrials (RMR) is proposing to expand the existing Transfer Trail limestone quarry from the current 20 acres to a highly visible open pit mine of 321 acres. The quarry expansion would create a barren scar up to the horizon line and nearly a mile wide. Other daily impacts include truck traffic, noise, dust, glaring lights, air pollution, carbon emissions, and destruction of a forested slope and wildlife habitat.
