For multiple generations, the Corliss family has owned and operated its mining facility at the base of the Sumner Grade, providing processed aggregate products to build and maintain much of the region’s vital infrastructure.
Almost everything we all enjoy in our community contains aggregate. All development or redevelopment activities are possible due to this important ingredient. Streets, sidewalks, parking lots, park trails, schools, churches, municipal buildings, and sewer utilities all exist due to aggregate.
Without local suppliers, these resources would be considerably more expensive. Short shipping distances keep fuel costs down and reduce impacts to our already congested and deteriorating transportation system.
While the demand for processed aggregate is steadily increasing, several other mines in the area are reported to be closing, as they have exhausted their mineral resource reserves. Our solution to the challenge, Corliss Resources proposes an extension into an unused area adjacent to its existing mine as part of the company’s long-term planning effort.
We’d love to hear your comments or answer any questions you have about the Myers Road project.
