A Message from Wright County Planning & Zoning
Wright County has received a completed citizens’ petition requesting that an Environmental Assessment Worksheet (EAW) be done for the MBE, Inc. mining request at the northeast corner of the intersection of Highway 25 and County Road 113 in Buffalo Township. The Wright County Board of Commissioners has authority in determining if an EAW is required and will be reviewing this matter at County Board meetings in November 2021. The EAW decision needs to take place before the Wright County Planning Commission can act on the mining request. In light of this, the MBE, Inc. mining request will not be heard at the Thursday, Oct. 28 Planning Commission meeting and will be stayed until further notice. The Office of Planning & Zoning will send new notifications out once a new meeting date is determined.
