SITE PLANNING FOR SAND AND GRAVEL OPERATIONS

BASICALLY, THE PUBLIC IMAGE OF A SAND AND GRAVEL OPERATION IS FORMED BY THE COMBINED IMPRESSIONS FROM THE PUBLIC'S REACTION AS IT MOVES PAST AN OPERATION, FROM THE EXPERIENCE SENSED BY NEIGHBORING PUBLIC LANDOWNERS, OR BY PERSONS ENTERING THE MINING PROPERTY. TWO GENERAL TYPES OF IMAGE PROBLEMS CAN BE IDENTIFIED AS FUNCTIONAL ANNOYANCES, AND VISUAL APPEARANCE. THIS RESEARCH REPORT WILL IDENTIFY TYPICAL PROBLEMS AND DEMONSTRATE HOW SITE PLANNING PRINCIPLES MAY BE EFFECTIVELY UTILIZED TO ALLEVIATE OBJECTIONABLE SITE CONDITIONS BY ANALYZING PHYSICAL COMPONENTS OF THE OPERATING SITE AND POINT UP FUNCTIONAL AND VISUAL RELATIONSHIPS OF TYPICAL PROBLEMS; DEVELOPING ALTERNATIVE SOLUTIONS TO TYPICAL PROBLEMS AND DEMONSTRATING SITE PLANNING PROPOSALS INVOLVING A CASE STUDY. THE SCOPE OF THIS REPORT INVOLVES GENERAL OPERATING PROBLEMS AND SUGGESTED ALTERNATIVES.
