Geneval Rock Rezone Application

Draper City received an application from Geneva Rock  for a text amendment, a land use map amendment and a rezone.  Geneva Rock is requesting to rezone a portion of its property  (72.9 acres) from an A-5 agricultural zone to a M-2 manufacturing zone to expand their gravel operations.  They are also requesting a Development Agreement to set aside 78.4 acres of land to create a conservation easement on Steep Mountain.

Geneva presented information to the Draper City Council on September 12, 2018.  The request to City Council was to consider Geneva's text amendment, land use map amendment, rezone, and development agreement which proposed the land conservation easement. Geneva Rock withdrew their application at this meeting.    
For more information about this application, Geneva Rock has made information available on their website.
