CPAC RECOMMENDATION:

On April 10, 2012, the Vineyard Community Planning Advisory Council (CPAC) recommended APPROVAL of the proposed amendments by a vote of 3-0.

 

ENVIRONMENTAL DOC.:

Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Report

 

REQUEST:

A Reclamation Plan Amendment for an aggregate mining operation known as Aspen III South approved in 1999 (Control No. 94-UPB-0484) to allow:

 

a.       A revision to the drainage and wetland mitigation plans for the project site that will include the construction of a Morrison Creek Realigned Channel (mining of the creek bed was approved in 1999) that will be approximately 300 feet in width at or near original grade, and will include adjacent buffer lands for a total width of 650 feet.  This new Morrison Creek Realigned Channel will accommodate 100-year flood flows and incorporate wetland/riparian habitat mitigation elements.

b.       The previously approved elevated bypass channel for Morrison Creek, and the 600-foot wide pit floor riparian corridor would be superseded with the construction of the new Morrison Creek Realigned Channel, as described above.

c.       Selected pit floor elevations may be raised to within 2 feet of the original grade over the term of the use permit (i.e., 22 years) using the “drying bed” method (i.e., the accumulation of silt-like material obtained from aggregate washings or direct import).

    A Use Permit Amendment to the Aspen III South approval to allow:

a.       Amendments to several of the conditions of the original approval that reference the approved elevated bypass channel for Morrison Creek and a 600-foot wide pit floor riparian corridor, and instead reference the new Morrison Creek Realigned Channel, as described above.

b.       An update of several conditions to reflect the 2011 Morrison Creek Hydrology and Hydraulic Analysis prepared for the project.

c.       An update of several conditions to reflect landscape plans approved for the project in 2002 (Control No 01-PAB-0686).

d.       An update of several conditions to reflect new wetland and oak woodland mitigation consistent with recent approvals by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

A Reclamation Plan Amendment for an aggregate mining operation known as Aspen IV South approved in 1999 (Control No. 90-CZB-UPB-1607) to allow:

a.       A revision to the drainage and wetland mitigation plans for the project site that consists of completely avoiding Morrison Creek on the Aspen IV South property and constructing a “Raised Bank Channel”.  Teichert will mine up to the southern edge of the floodway of Morrison Creek, and will construct berms outside of the floodway on the north and south sides of the creek to create a Raised Bank Channel.

d.       Two options for on-site retention of stormwater: (a) drain to the adjacent Vineyard I mining site (this option was approved in 1999), or (b) retain on-site in an engineered retention basin.

A Use Permit Amendment and Zoning Agreement Amendment to the Aspen IV South approval to allow:

a.       Amendments to several of the conditions of the original approval that reference the previously approved elevated bypass channel for Morrison Creek and a 600-foot wide pit floor riparian corridor, and instead reference the new Raised Bank Channel, as described above.
