Hogan Asphalt Plant Moving To Carson Hill ~ By Supervisors Steve Kearney & Cliff Edson

Valley Springs & Angels Camp, CA...Over the weekend much was said on social media regarding the removal of the stored asphalt plant at the Hogan Quarry. At this time we are able to share the evolution of this project. The issues regarding the Asphalt Plant are complex and confusing. As county supervisors we have not been able to comment publicly up to this point or correct the misinformation being exchanged on social media and in the community for reasons related to county liability as well as possible legal issues.

Lb-asphalt-plant-structure



The applicant was notified by actions of the Planning Commission and the Board of Supervisors that an Authority to Construct would be required which would likely include a full CEQA environmental review at the Hogan Quarry location. Subsequently

staff notified supervisors that an inquiry was made regarding locating an asphalt plant at Carson Hill. At the beginning of this month we were updated that the Air District had received an Authority to Construct for CB Asphalt located at Carson Hill Rock Products (this is a matter of public record) where a Mitigated Negative Declaration has already reviewed all applications of the mining operation including an asphalt plant operation.

We felt at this time it was important to give an update on this project. We will continue to work hard on behalf of our constituents and will help facilitate progress whenever possible as we represent all citizens of Calaveras County.

Its a good business to have with good jobs. The closer the plant is to the users in Calaveras county the less driving will be required to deliver materials to the final construction site. We have roads that need asphalt less we go back to dirt. Lets support a business in our community that will provide needed materials to support our infrastructure along with a few good jobs, which will further support more jobs.

    so happy to hear this "good business" aka polluting, stinking health hazard~will not be allowed to operate in a subdivision in Valley Springs! Not sure where carson hill is but I think its in Angels Camp? good. 30 miles up the road sounds great to me. Bye don't let the door hit ya on the way out. This is a great example of what happens when a community comes together and fights a monster.

      Yes fuel money being spent and kept in Angels Camp and not sh!t box Valley Springs. That means all the snacks foods, cigs, chewing tobacco, soda's, groceries, parts if needed, Beer for at the Yard and more. Damn straight Angels Camp will like those monies coming in.

      What is Valley Springs getting? Oh ya a Dollar General.....lol. Fools.

          One industry in time brings in other industry and in time that builds your economy. That plant now can service Tuolumne County and Calaveras County. Win/Win.

          Enjoy your tweak haven in Valley Springs. It will always be a hole just like San Andreas. Once you get sucked in you usually do not get out. That has not changed much since the 70's when Rancho Calaveras first went in.

          Well he is right, and I don't live in Angels Camp. It's well known that Valley Springs is a *bleep* hole of a place, but hey, someone has to live there, glad it's you and the fine upstanding criminals that reside there.

        I doubt you will be pulling up behind an asphalt truck at a gas station here. They probably but bulk and gas on site...and that income from some drivers buying cigs and sodas isn't leaving me starry eyed

            Wow, you must be an idiot. The Sutton's run a business, actually multiple businesses from their quarry, the latest was cement coming from their plant. I haven't heard how it's doing since I know longer work cement, and I'm not sure how many trucks they have, but the asphalt part will help the 'boys" build their business up that much faster.

        Dollar General Smells Way Better, will generate more tax dollars and serve the community far better than an asphalt plant.

    The plant should not put out much in the environmental area, highly regulated. They have plants in the valley and bay area 100 - 200 feet from homes. Worse plant is the one in Santa Clara that makes fiberglass, smell it from a 1/2 mile away. The local asphalt plant you don't smell from 1/4 mile away.

      Considering no one will be smelling asphalt from where Carson Hill is located, it's a great pick. Congrats to the Sutton's on getting the plant, and I hope all runs as smooth as a newly paved road for you guys.
      Nice job.

it will be toxic for the area.
As they stated, the expensive research will have to be done any way, no matter where it goes.
"Carson Hill is on the Mother Lode belt in southwestern Calaveras County. The district consists of that portion of the Mother Lode that extends from Carson Flat southeast through Carson Hill to the town of Melones on the Stanislaus River. It has also been known as the Melones district. "

    That might be true, but dress all the employees like Teletubbies characters, and it'll reverse the harmful effect of the asphalt plant, or so I've read.

      Doesn't seem like it would create enough jobs to be worth the impact on the area. Downtown Angels Camp is bad enough with logging trucks, etc. Exiting to Sonora isn't good either, Rawhide Rd. or downtown Sonora.

Asphalt plant in Carson Hill
Posted on: 2016-06-22 11:03:49   By: Anonymous
 
While I don't know what a Mitigated Negative Declaration does or allows, any asphalt plant anywhere should be subject to CEQA. However, Carson Hill is already destroyed by the mining operations there and better to put the asphalt plant there than to destroy the area on Hogan Dam Rd next to the Calaveras River water supply. Still don't know why George Reed can't keep the local asphalt work. They already have their own plant. Ford Construction is out of Lodi and is a much bigger company. They and CB Asphalt can go elsewhere. We should not let them edge out George Reed.
