Frac sand-related facility zone change OK’d

SAN ANGELO, Texas – A zone change that would allow for a sand transloading facility just north of San Angelo was approved by the Planning Commission.

“Everybody, I think, is in favor of this change,” said Marshall Huling, who represented the landowners and applicant Pinnacle Sands during Monday’s meeting.

The zone change from “ranch and estate” to “heavy manufacturing” comes after the 175-acre property, at Old Ballinger Highway and U.S. Highway 277, was annexed into the city during the Feb. 17 City Council meeting.

Pinnacle plans to place a small office building on the property, a small scale house and a 22,000-square-foot paved parking area, according to representatives at the council meeting.

The development is contingent on the zone change. The Planning Commission recommended approval at Monday’s meeting. The City Council will ultimately decide whether to approve or deny the zone change.


Butts Recycling Inc. will be able to expand after a plat was approved during Monday’s meeting.

The expansion will enable Butts to accommodate more recyclable items in preparation for Republic Services’ single-stream recycling program.

Republic Services aims to commence curbside recycling collections in San Angelo during the summer.
