HUMBOLDT — The fate of a piece of land near the summit of what’s commonly known as Humboldt Hill will be decided Tuesday by Allen County commissioners.

At issue is David Gant’s desire to use a portion of the land as a limestone rock quarry.

Because the land is zoned agricultural, the county must approve a conditional use permit before crews from Mid-States Materials, LLC — the aggregate materials company that would partner with Gant to open the quarry — can begin mining the rock.
