No Mining in Lake A and New Trails
CEMEX’s plan calls for new pedestrian and bike trails bordering Pleasanton and Livermore neighborhoods that will improve trail connectivity and introduce neighbors to newly restored habitat, local wildlife and a realigned Arroyo Del Valle creek that meanders through the property.
CEMEX’s plan prohibits future mining in Lake A and in addition to a new trail along Vineyard Avenue (Lake B), the Livermore trail (North Lake A) will be extended around the equestrian property, bridging Lakeside Circle and Traviso Circle.*
For these community benefits to become a reality, CEMEX’s plan must first be approved by Alameda County. If not, CEMEX would be required to continue reclamation under the existing 1987 reclamation plan – a plan that is dated by today’s environmental standards and provides fewer benefits.
CEMEX has an attractive plan for the quarry site – a vision that reflects its commitment to environmental excellence and being a good neighbor. If you agree, let the Alameda County Board of Supervisors know by taking our Neighborhood Survey.
*The Livermore trail extension to the north of Lake A is not part of CEMEX’s amended reclamation plan. If the plan is approved by the County as submitted, then CEMEX will work with the City of Livermore to develop the trail connection.
