Nevada Cement receives OK for expansion permit, zone change
Published: 08 November 2007

Nevada Cement has approval for both an expansion permit and a zone change to an adjacent property, though the former did not come before a bit of discussion before the Lyon County Board of Commissioners Thursday.

Nevada Cement Company was seeking a permit to double capacity at their existing cement manufacturing facility located at 500 SR40 in Fernley. In addition, the applicant was seeking to change the zoning from RR-5 (rural residential; 20 acres minimum) to M-1 (general industrial) on approximately 140 of a total approximately 270 acres. The remaining nearly 123 acres includes the current facility was already in an M-1 zone.

It was previously noted the property requested for the zone change is located easterly adjacent to the current property and would not be directly impacted via the expansion.
