Binyamina Quarry…

Ramat Hanadiv and the Local Council of Binyamina- Givat Ada see a great importance in the communal involvement in the future planning of the Binyamina Quarry.
In 2007, after much public pressure, the mining of the site was discontinued and the responsibility for the Quarry was entrusted to The Quarry Rehabilitation Fund, as a result of the law of landscape restoration of abandoned quarries.
Zoning Ordinance 1249/S, the proposal for the rehabilitation of the Quarry is currently awaiting approval from the government planning authorities.
This offers a wonderful opportunity to turn to the public and encourage involvement in the concept development process for the rehabilitation of the site. The building plan established stages of the development of the various regions of the Quarry (See the Regional Development Map), but has not determined the exact content or given specific details. 
As part of the process, students from the primary schools in the settlement Religious Municipal School Hanadiv, Amirim, and Eshkolot), students of architecture at The Binyamina ORT School, Binyamina scouts troop of Shevet Omer, as well as the general public, have participated in tours. After they toured the Quarry, the students participated in Wish list Workshops in which they were asked to express their personal wishes through artistic media. The outcomes can be seen here.
The community as a whole was invited to write wishes on a large sign or cards, both at the Binyamina Parade and at the Evening for Conceptual Development that took place at Eshkol Hapayis at ORT Binyamina. 
On the Evening for Conceptual Development, architect, Lilach Ginat Noymark of the Society for Preservation of Israel Heritage Sites presented the history of the Quarry, architect Tally Tuch of The Quarry Rehabilitation Fund addressed zoning, what is and is not possible, and Tamar Arbel-Elisha of Ramat Hanadiv discussed student involvement in the development process. In addition, there was a viewing of the film about the Quarry that was compiled by Ramat Hanadiv.
The second part of the evening was dedicated to group discussions, moderated by community volunteers. In these discussion groups, many ideas were debated regarding the future of the Quarry and regarding what role nature will play on the impending development. 
And what is yet to come? 
In the coming months, after compiling and testing the ideas, an additional meeting is planned at which there will be a discussion that will delve deeper into the possibilities that are being discussed on the subject. After the steering committee has had a chance to process the outcomes, the preferred outline will be given to the architect for the purpose of the preparing a detailed plan.
