Geneva Rock’s proposal for expansion goes on hold after changes to application

Local News

DRAPER, Utah (News4Utah) – Geneva Rock’s request to expand their gravel pit in Draper was put on hold after the city said it needed more time after the proposal originally submitted changed. 

Geneva Rock had wanted to rezone 73 acres but per a city council member, the company changed the application to zone just 18 acres. 

That council member said Geneva Rock probably withdrew their proposal because they knew it would not pass. 

“We need to make sure, as a city council member that first Geneva is forefront in what they are trying to do,” said Michelle Weeks, Draper City Council. “Second that we make sure our residents and the air quality of draper is protected.”

Councilwoman Michelle Weeks said Geneva showed no proof of no health risk in 70 acres of rezoning. 

If the proposal had been denied, Geneva would have to wait at least two years to reapply.
