On November 23, 2004, a deed transferring Gurley Mountain land from M&N Construction to Vulcan Lands was recorded in Madison County. This land, which was annexed into the city limits of Gurley in April of this year, is in the process of being zoned.
What you can do:

1. We urge you to attend an important Public Hearing at 7:00 p.m., Thursday, December 16 at the First Baptist Church on Joplin Street in Gurley . The Planning Commission has tentatively recommended R-2 zoning of the M&N Construction property (recently purchased by Vulcan Lands). All persons attending will be given the opportunity of being heard in opposition to, or in favor of, the R-2 zoning designation. Note that Vulcan representatives have been invited to the meeting, and it is expected that they will attend.

2. Encourage everyone to attend the meeting and address the Planning Commission about your concerns.

3. Put your "Stop the Gurley Mountain Quarry" Signs back up in your yard.

4. Help raise money for the legal defense fund by continuing to sell the Gurley Cookbook.
