The Quail Creek Property Owners Association has officially taken a stance against a proposal that would bring an asphalt plant just north of their community.

On Feb. 20, Vulcan Construction Materials – an Alabama-based supplier and distributor of construction aggregates – submitted an application for a conditional use permit with the Town of Sahuarita to operate a hot mix asphalt plant at its current sand and gravel mining operation along Old Nogales Highway, just over a half-mile from some of the northernmost homes in Quail Creek.
