Help rethink the Jefferson Quarry. The quarry was used to mine limestone and sand until 2017 when mining operations ended. Now, efforts are underway to imagine how the Jefferson Quarry, which consists of more than 50 acres, can be redeveloped and reused.

What do you imagine for the future of the Jefferson Quarry? What neighborhood and community needs could this area potentially serve? Complete the survey. Share your ideas. Discuss.
