A mining company held a meeting to discuss its plan for a granite quarry just south of Temecula.
The meeting went on today from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Temeku Hills Clubhouse. Two more meetings are planned: one from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Eagle Glen golf club at 1800 Eagle Glen Pkwy in Corona and the other from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursdayat the Ramona Room at 1501 West Florida St. in Hemet.
The "Liberty Quarry" project aims to put a mile-long open-pit mine in the hills between Temecula and the San Diego County line near the Santa Margarita Ecological Preserve.
Opponents fear the quarry will pollute the air, cause truck traffic and taint the preserve. Proponents believe it will provide jobs, reduce the cost of aggregate and provide tax dollars.
