Cookeville Planners To Discuss Rock Quarry

The Cookeville planning commission Monday night will be once again discussing a proposal to expand a rock quarry in the eastern part of town. The commission denied a rezoning request from the quarry a few years ago, and the city planning department says it will be recommending against a different attempt at rezoning tonight. City officials say they are concerned about heavy truck traffic on the access road to the quarry and also about the effect of the expansion on nearby neighborhoods. The meeting begins at 5:30 Monday evening at Cookeville city hall.
