Citizens for Shelby Preservation

Protecting community, environment and quality of life for all residents


 Welcome to the home page of  Citizens for Shelby Preservation,  a grassroots organization dedicated to preserving the quality of life in our community.   Quality of life that is threatened by a proposed stone quarry to be located directly adjacent to our Iroquois National Wildlife Refuge and several residential homes.

No one in our group is against mining.  We all support the many quarries already operating in our area.  However, placing a 179 acre limestone quarry operation on agricultural residential land, directly adjacent to the wildlife refuge is wrong.  It's wrong for the environment and it's wrong for our community.   Get the facts, get involved, and help us stop this quarry. Together we can make a difference!
