The Village Board of North Aurora, Ill., unanimously rejected a request to allow Lafarge North America to extend its stone mine beneath two 200-ft.-wide rights of way near a subdivision. Homeowners have reportedly complained that mine blasts routinely shake their houses and have cracked their walls and foundations.
