Geneva Rock Application
Draper City has received an application from Geneva Rock to rezone a portion of their property, amend existing text in the Draper City code and update the Draper City Land Use Map. The company would like to expand gravel and mining operations on approximately 26.99 acres of their property adjacent to the Lehi City boundary. The company is also requesting a Development Agreement to preserve approximately 64.27 acres of their property as open space. Of the approximately 64.27 acres, the company is proposing to give approximately 43.33 acres of land on Steep Mountain to Draper City for the purposes of protecting as open space. Draper City is committed to an open and transparent process where residents have an opportunity to provide meaningful input during the review of any application received.
The Draper City Planning Commission considered Geneva Rock’s application at their regularly scheduled meeting on Thursday, February 27, 2021 and acted unanimously to "negatively recommend" the company’s application to the Draper City Council. Consideration of this application by the city council is postponed until further notice. Any updates regarding this process will be posted on this page.
