Stone Issues Statement on CEMEX Settlement

For immediate release:

SACRAMENTO—Assemblymember Mark Stone (D-Monterey Bay) has issued the following statement in response to the settlement reached for the eventual closure of the CEMEX sand mining operation in Marina:

“The Coastal Commission, the State Lands Commission, and the City of Marina have worked hard to finally reach an agreement with CEMEX to phase out and eventually shut down its Central Coast sand mining plant.  Thanks to our community’s advocacy, mining will no longer put our coastal environment at risk of beach erosion and declining sand supplies, and we have secured public access to this part of the coast in the future.”

Stone represents the 29th Assembly District in the California State Assembly, which includes portions of the counties of Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, and Monterey.
