While CLR-34 NA was fighting Martin Marietta Materials’ proposed aggregate processing facility, the neighborhood was assaulted with additional proposals for industrial activities submitted for nearby parcels of land zoned Agricultural. These are summarized below.
Envirotech Change of Zone application (COZ15-0001)–DENIED
In July 2015, Weld 34 LLC, including Envirotech and McWhinney, applied for a Change of Zone from Agricultural to Industrial on two parcels adjacent to the MMM property on WCR13. The applicant was very vague about what they planned to do on this property, but they focused on the existence of rail and suggested that they planned some sort of transloading facility. The Weld County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) denied the application.
