Green Bluff Resident Attempting To Build Sand Mine In Rural Area
SPOKANE, Wash. - For many, Green Bluff is a haven. You can go there to pick apples, pumpkins and some even just go for the kind warm experience you get when you arrive, but what if all of that was shadowed by a sand mine?
Fred Brown owns a stretch of land between E. Green Bluff Rd. and Day Mt. Spokane Rd. He has commissioned for a permit to remove 250,000 yards plus a treed hillside and create a sand mine which he would later turn into a horse pasture.
Fred lives in a wildlife corridor right by a school in the Green Bluff area. Neighbors of Fred are worried that if he is allowed to excavate his land, than it will ruin the image of Green Bluff that all the community's have grown to love over the years. They are also worried that increasing traffic flow with big trucks and other heavy equipment could reduce the safety of the kids at the nearby school.
Fred has applied for this permit prior to this year. When he applied in 2007 and 2008, he was denied, it was over a smaller chunk of land, but still denied non the less. If this permit passes, it will be the first time that Spokane county has issued a conditional use permit for inning on a rural conservation ground.
Today there was a meeting where the hearing examiner heard from many neighbors on what they had to say on this manner, he will weigh what he heard and give an answer in about 10 days.
