PUEBLO – A hearing about the controversial gravel pit near Avondale is scheduled for Tuesday.

Starting at 9 a.m., community members are invited to share their thoughts about the proposed gravel pit that could be near 40th and Olsen near Avondale in the eastern part of the county.

This meeting was originally scheduled for last month, but the overwhelming amount of people who have an opinion on this issue forced the county to move it back.

The hearing will be held at the Sangre de Cristo Arts and Conference Center in Pueblo.
