Vulcan Materials Company Welcomes Neighbors and Community Leaders for Vulcan Chula Vista Quarry Community Day

CHULA VISTA, Ca., November 3, 2023 — On October 28, Vulcan Materials Company (Vulcan) hosted a 2023 Community Day at its Vulcan Chula Vista Quarry. For nearly 100 years, the Vulcan Chula Vista Quarry has been providing locally produced high-quality infrastructure materials to Chula Vista and San Diego County. Sand, stone, and gravel from the Vulcan Chula Vista Quarry builds the region’s homes, schools, hospitals, parks, roads, sidewalks, bike paths, and more.

Attended by residents of the Chula Vista Côta Vera and Escaya communities, the Community Day was an opportunity for community members to meet the Vulcan Chula Vista Quarry team, learn about Quarry operations, and enjoy free activities, food trucks, and raffle.

Community Day attendees were able to take guided tours of the Vulcan Chula Vista Quarry and hear from subject matter experts on topics including safety, geology, blasting, land reclamation, environmental stewardship, and careers.  For every free meal ordered at the event, Vulcan made a donation to the Chula Vista Firefighter’s Foundation, a long-time community partner in the region. The event helped raise a total of $8,000 for the Chula Vista Firefighter’s Foundation to support their disaster relief, fire awareness, and fire safety programming efforts.

” As Chula Vista grows, we are dedicated to proactively engaging with our neighbors, especially in the neighboring Côta Vera and Escaya communities. We want neighbors to see firsthand how we operate, the values we hold, and the practices we have in place to operate in a way that is safe, environmentally sound, and beneficial to our community. We will continue to welcome our neighbors into our ” ˜home’ here at the Vulcan Chula Vista Quarry, and we look forward to continuing this positive, engaged relationship for years to come, ”  said Steve Hallmark, Vulcan Chula Vista Quarry Plant Manager.

Also in attendance were Senator Steve Padilla (D-18), Chula Vista Mayor John McCann, Chula Vista Councilmember Alonso Gonzalez, Chula Vista Chamber of Commerce CEO Marcy Weaver, and the Chula Vista Firefighter’s Foundation.
