Last week we posted unconfirmed reports that a developer was interested in Rockaway Quarry. We inquired about this to City Manager Steve Rhodes. He said he was unaware of it and would look into it further. We heard nothing more. So we stuck by our guns and left our post up. Then on March 11 we posted an email (below) sent to a local contact, confirming that Barry Swenson Builder of San Jose has an eye on the quarry.
