Quarry plan up for discussion

Saturday December 15, 2012

DORSET -- Solving the issue of allowing emergency vehicles to reach residents on Black Rock Lane via Kelly Road during the summer months when the Dorset Quarry is heavily used will be the topic of discussion during an upcoming hearing at the Dorset Town offices in East Dorset.

The discussion will take place on Tuesday, Dec. 18, starting at 7 p.m.

Up for discussion will be the changes being made to Kelly Road and Black Rock Lane, two roads adjacent to the quarry, a popular swimming area during summer months.

The hearing will allow members of the public to comment with any concerns or to be more thoroughly informed of the change. The proposed change comes on the heels of residents of Black Rock Lane worrying that there is not sufficient access to their road to both emergency vehicles and the residents themselves.

"There are a lot of issues surrounding the quarry," said Richard Pistell, a resident of Black Rock Lane. "There have been heart attacks this year and we were concerned that emergency vehicles would have trouble reaching us."
