Gravel pit hearing to be held Wednesday


On Wednesday, June 8, the Archuleta County Planning Commission will hold a public hearing regarding a gravel pit on County Road 500 (Trujillo Road).

The gravel pit would be called the “Two Rivers Pit” and would be located at 12500 County Road 500.

Originally, the hearing was held in February, but had been continued to June 8 after the applicants, C&J Gravel, of Durango, asked the planning commission for a continuance in order to complete a traffic study.

Archuleta County Planning Manager John Shepard explained to SUN staff that while he had received calls supporting the gravel pit, he felt it was safe to say the majority of feedback received was against the gravel pit.

The hearing will be held on Wednesday, June 8, at 6 p.m. at Centerpoint Church, located at 2750 Cornerstone Drive.

If you would like to provide feedback in favor or against the gravel pit, email the planning department at or call 264-1390.
