Depleting Door County

The economy and jobs are more important than anything else.

This mine will cause the decimation of bat populations by destroying the Paradise Cave System!! Door County hibernating bat are facing extinction. These insectivores play an important role in pest control and are a disappearing part of Wisconsin’s biodiversity.
Franda Mines has no business destroying this cave system and endangering local residents.

Josie Witt selected No

Keep the environment safe and clean. It would be so uglly

Jeffrey Figueroa selected No

Concerned about increased heavy equipment traffic damaging roads and airborne dust and dirt pollution

Mary Baker selected No

As a property owner adjacent to this quarry I am concerned about property value, increased truck volume, noise from blasting and degradation of the entire area as a whole.

Alexander’s Cherry Orchard selected No

Hazardous, unhealthy environment for us maintaining our orchard & for us, hired help & customers during cherry harvest.

Justin May selected No

This mine is way too close to residents. Some are only a few hundred feet away! Way too much risk for all surrounding home owners just for one person to open a quarry.

Anonymous selected No

The quarry will damage the water table and connected wetlands.

Wayne Bretl selected No

Our land is directly across the road from the quarry site. No way should this happen.

Jody Griep selected No

My niece and her husband just built a beautiful new home to raise their family. This will destroy everything they worked so hard for!

WENDY Hansen selected No

This endangers all those families

Amber May selected No

This quarry has the capability of ruining many neighbors’ wells. With a shallow water table, blasting Dolomite could easily contaminate our drinking water. This quarry will be within 200ft of homes in the Deer Track subdivision. There is also a cave system that runs through this area, as well as preexisting sink holes in the neighborhood. What will happen to those structures when blasting begins?!! This site also cohabitates with at least 4 endangered species that we know of. Someone (DNR, DC Soil and Water!!!) needs to investigate this further to ensure the safety of ALL LIVING BEINGS in this area!
