New Braunfels & Boerne

These communities have been fighting Vulcan’s proposed Comal Quarry off FM 3009 since 2017.

Vulcan Materials plans to set up a 1500-acre open-pit limestone quarry in a residential area of central Comal County, located between Bulverde, Spring Branch, Garden Ridge, and New Braunfels.

– Nearly three miles across
– One mile fronting SH 46
– 1  1/2 miles fronting FM 3009
– Less than one mile from FM 1863

Vulcan

Vulcan Materials is NOT a good neighbor.

Vulcan has a poor track record when it comes to protecting natural resources and following regulations. During the past several years, over 80 formal complaints were filed against Vulcan—in Texas alone. And over 35 permit violations occurred at a single Vulcan plant (Loop 1604 in San Antonio). Vulcan can’t be trusted to respect the environment or follow the law.

Sunrise Beach / Sandy Creek

Save Sandy Creek is an organization of ranchers, neighbors, hunters, friends, and fans of Sandy Creek–and users of Highway 71–who are deeply concerned about the damage that our water reserves, highways, tourism industry, businesses, ecosystem and lifestyle will suffer if the proposed Collier Materials sand and rock crushing plant is put into operation in Sandy Creek. We pledge to do everything we can legally and ethically to stop this project before it starts.

Collier

Collier Materials, Inc. is NOT a desired neighbor.

Collier Materials, in partnership with Steve Nash, private landowner applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality for an air-quality permit regarding a mobile rock crusher that would be set up along Sandy Creek on private property. The company plans on “dredging” a portion of the the creek to extract sand. Not only are the citizens concerned about negative health and community concerns, they also argue that Mr. Nash only owns a very small potion of the sand in the riverbed.
Property owner Steve Nash and Collier Materials have repeatedly said this was to be a modest plant, but now the truth is known (see map). They will be expanding their production levels multi-fold from what was previously represented.This new level of production will exacerbate all the concerns for area residents, animals, and the environment.

Boerne & Bergheim

Boerne To Bergheim Coalition For a Clean Environment (BBCCE): Neighbors, parents, landowners, and businesses along the highway 46 corridor are very concerned about the proposed concrete batch plant and have all joined together in an unprecedented effort to fight this. They are deeply concerned about the health impacts from this facility, particularly to their children at their school and the elderly who live nearby.  They are deeply concerned about the very small particles of dust and silica that the facility proposes to emit right next to a school that caters to children from infants to middle school. Children are particularly sensitive to air pollution more so than adults. This type of permit they have applied for does not really review these type of adverse health impacts in this circumstance with school children nearby.
