DEADWOOD, S.D. (AP) - Lawrence County commissioners plan to tour the site of a proposed rock quarry before deciding whether to approve it.

Rapid City-based Mountain View Ranches LLC is seeking a county permit for a 192-acre sand, gravel and rock quarry off Crook City Road.

Some area residents think the operation would jeopardize historic trails and lead to other problems including dust and road damage.

The county’s planning and zoning board earlier recommended the commission approve a permit with several conditions aimed at limiting the quarry’s impacts on the surrounding area.

Commissioners plan an on-site tour April 28 to help them decide. A final decision might not come until early June.
