Special Permit Amendment Update
Our Fairfax plant has successfully operated in Fairfax County since the 1930’s. For the past 40 years we’ve effectively maintained a Special Permit issued by the Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) of Fairfax County which is subject to renewal every five years. Our most recent renewal application (SPA 81-S-064-11) originally submitted in June of 2018, included details about anticipated reclamation and site restoration efforts as production mining in our North Pit was planned to cease.
Upon an engaging session with the community in October of 2018 we spent several months developing a highly effective and environmentally friendly Reclamation Fill Plan to provide more detail on how we plant to restore the property. As we have just recently received feedback from the County and their third-party review firm, we are nearing the completion of a final draft of the plan and are excited to share our progress.
Our permitting team is dedicated to disseminating this information to our community in creative and innovative ways during these challenging times, therefore, we have developed this Community Resource Page as a tool for the benefit our friends and neighbors. Below, in our FAQ section, you’ll find answers to several of the questions we’ve received from the community in regard to our intended reclamation efforts.
We encourage you to review the information below, continue to ask good questions and stay engaged through this process.

Better people. Braver leaders. Wiser world.
Over the years, Luck Companies’ message and VBL work has reached thousands of individuals and organizations. Recognizing our opportunity to share this life-changing work with others inspired us to establish a non-profit leadership institute. In 2015, in collaboration with a community of VBL practitioners, we launched InnerWill to pursue a mission to develop better people, braver leaders, and a wiser world. InnerWill uses Values Based Leadership to teach, coach and support the development of those interested in transforming both their life and the lives of others.

The spirit of VBL embodies living, working, and leading in alignment with your personal core values, principles, beliefs and purpose to ignite the extraordinary potential in those around you. At its core, the philosophy is about understanding who you are and becoming the best version of yourself so you can help others do the same.
Reclamation is the critical and final element of the mining process which can take many forms. Being located in a suburban environment like Fairfax County, the reclamation of our Fairfax Plant has been carefully evaluated and planned with great detail to ensure the safety of our neighbors, compatibility with the surrounding landscape and with the ultimate goal of a resulting property that is safe and suitable for a new beginning. As depicted below, rather than left to naturalize without any further restoration efforts, upon completion of our Reclamation Fill exercise beginning in our North Pit, the property will be free of accessible highwalls and be suitable for a variety of redevelopment opportunities. The approximate 20-acre lake will be complemented with gentle slopes traversing downward from preserved vegetation along the perimeter of the property. The meticulous restoration of an exhausted quarry pit to a property poised for a new beginning will be an incredible transformation that western Fairfax County deserves.
We develop relationships with large landowners in our markets to determine if they are a good fit for quarry use - including a location that allows for convenient truck service to our markets, or access to rail or water provider service to those markets.
We confirm that the areas we investigate have the geological resources to facilitate the production of construction grade aggregates.
We identify property attributes, geology, and adequate reserves for 50-100 years of operation. Considerations include local zoning, state permit requirements and local and state stakeholders aligning with our criteria.
Once access to a cleared property has been obtained, we make contact and request a site visit. An initial tour of the property will identify land characteristics that indicate the presence of aggregates. We will also drill to establish both depths of overburden (dirt or unsuitable rock) and the quality of the material.
Once a site is determined to be a viable source of construction grade aggregate, we proceed with the permitting process, including extensive conversation with the community about our operations and the specifics of our plans. To date, every application we have undertaken has significantly benefitted from public input. We also plan for future reclamation of the property to include water storage reservoirs or land development.
Throughout the entire process we meet with community members at every level to discuss the positive economic impact of a new quarry, the perceived impact, and the actual impact. This conversation continues beyond these 7 steps as we make sure to keep everyone engaged as partners from the local to the state and federal level.
Plan for Operations
When a permit is received, we begin planning for operations, including hiring local engineers, surveyors, site work contractors and others to build plants and infrastructure, as well as hiring associates for operation of the facility.
Hiring is typically a three-step process, which begins with a conversation over the phone with one of our HR professionals. The conversation is followed by a meeting with the hiring manager, and concludes with a panel interview with the people you’ll be working with. Each candidate will also be given a Culture Fit Assessment to make sure it’s a good match.
