Jefferson County Open Space (JCOS) has received a proposal from Martin Marietta Materials for a land exchange. The exchange would deed the former 114 acre Heritage Square and the 5.7 acre Bachman property at US 40 (Colfax) and Heritage Road to JCOS.
In return, JCOS would deed approximately 64 acres of Matthews/Winters Park north of I-70 and south of the existing mine, which is currently not open for public use, to Martin Marietta Materials to extend the life of the existing mine. When mining is completed, the land will be returned to JCOS for park and open space purposes.
