Permitting Battle

June 18, 2021 – Martin Marietta Materials Inc. has petitioned the Colorado Supreme Court to review a state Court of Appeals ruling in favor of Save Our St. Vrain Valley, an ecological activist coalition that’s been working to keep the company from mining gravel on hundreds of acres in the Hygiene area west of Longmont, according to media reports.

Last month, Martin Marietta’s attorneys filed paperwork arguing that the three-judge Court of Appeals panel had erred in their April ruling that Boulder County’s special use permit for gravel mining on the property in question, originally issued in 1998, had expired because of a lapse in certain kinds of relevant activities there.
