ST. PAUL — The DNR is now taking public comment on draft maps for Stearns County’s aggregate resources.

The county board of commissioners asked the DNR to map the county’s sand, gravel and crushed stone deposits to better plan for future zoning and also to identify local, low-cost sources of these minerals.

Comments will be taken until October 15th and the DNR will use the information to prepare final maps that will be presented to the county board of commissioners.

You can view proposed maps at the Stearns County’s libraries or online. For more information, call Heather Arends at 651-259-5376.
