Residents can see gravel pit study
TOWN OF MILTON--After a year of controversy, political wrangling and some indecision, the Milton Town Board could be ready to decide if it will allow developer Tom Amon to build a gravel pit along North Klug Road.
The town has released results of an independent consultant’s study of potential effects from the 137-acre gravel pit Elkhorn-based Amon & Sons and landowner Scott Traynor seek to develop on a glacial hillside next to state wetlands and dozens of residences.
On Feb. 11, the board and the town’s planning and zoning committee will hear a full presentation of the study conducted by hydrologists Montgomery Associates and environmental consultants Taylor Conservation and Environmental Engineering and Compliance.
Committee members commissioned the study late last year and ordered Amon & Sons to pay for the work.
The study is seen as the final step before the town decides whether or not to approve a conditional-use permit for the project.
