Crenshaw Property - Shelby County, TN (North Plant)




Memphis Stone and Gravel Company seeks a special use permit to mine sand and gravel on approximately 46 acres next to its existing permitted projects ("Duke" SUP 04-213 CO and "Rosenburg" SUP 09-217 CO.  About 22 acres of high quality sand and gravel exists on the tract.  The majority of the materials will be transported to the wash plant located on Millington-Arlington Road by a conveyor system.  Any material that has to be transported by truck will use the existing ingress/egress located on Millington-Arlington Road, NO traffic will enter Pleasant Ridge Road.



Memphis Stone and Gravel Company must comply with stringent regulations pertaining to environmental protection and worker safety. We are committed to being good stewards of our natural environment and being a good neighbor. The company is regulated by state and federal agencies, primarily the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation, the federal Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA), The US Department of the Army Corps of Engineers, state and federal Department of Transportation (DOT), and the federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The growth in North Shelby County and the surrounding region requires a good source of local aggregate. Memphis Stone & Gravel Company believes this deposit is an irreplaceable natural resource and will likely be lost to future residential development if not managed as a resource for construction material. 


Estimated disturbed area as follows:

• Up to 22 acres to be mined

• ~1-2 acres haul/access roads 

• ~5 acres soil storage/berm area

• ~2-3 acres storm water retention ponds (temporary)

• Balance left undisturbed/Buffer Area. 


No mining will occur within 75 ft. of a property boundary, 100 feet of any street or right of way or 250 ft. from an occupied dwelling. Where appropriate, berms will be constructed to add visual/noise buffers. Operations will be restricted to daylight hours and will be permitted Monday-Saturday, 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

The proposed haul route will be restricted as follows: all truck traffic exiting the site will turn west onto Millington-Arlington Road and travel to the North Plant main entrance.  Trucks will be weighed and upon exiting the site will travel to the job site using permitted routes.  No traffic will exit onto Pleasant Ridge Road. Trucks will be in compliance with our Good Neighbor Trucking Policy.


A 10 year permit time-frame is being requested, which has been customary on similar projects. Actual mining is expected to begin within the next 3 to 5 years and will take 1-2 years to complete.
