Bulverde Passes Quarry Resolution
City of Bulverde, the self-described Front Porch of the Texas Hill Country, passed unanimously June 12 a resolution reiterating its opposition to Vulcan Materials’ proposed Vulcan Quarry, a 1,500-acre open-pit limestone quarry at FM 3009 and SH-46, between Bulverde, Spring Branch, Garden Ridge and New Braunfels.
The city stated its intention to directly request a contested-case hearing with the city as an affected party, as well as submitting to TCEQ formal recommendations for tighter permit restrictions and requirements.

Sabrina Houser Amaya, one of the activists spearheading opposition to the quarry through Stop 3009 Vulcan Quarry, said she’s thrilled with the resolution and hopes Comal County commissioners will “take heed in this proactive stance.”
“We are grateful to Mayor Bill Krawietz and the Bulverde City Council in standing with and supporting their constituents and area residents in the fight to protect our health, safety, and the natural resources of our beautiful Hill Country,” she said.
TCEQ’s Response to Comments for Vulcan Quarry Permit #147392L001 is still pending.
