Parker unveils plans: Marble Valley, Serrano Westside, Pedregal and Lime Rock projects incuded

Parker at lime kiln

Bill’s Kiln – Bill Parker, left checks out the historic lime kiln in Marble Valley with Adrea Howard, right, and Tom Howard, next to Parker on one of their 43 site tours over the last year and a half. Lime was quarried extensively in the area as far back as the 1800s. Early mining operations processed the lime onsite in kilns, a process of “liming” which drew off carbonic acid leaving lime in its caustic state. A final “slaking” process turned the lime into a paste used to make bricks, mortar, paint and plaster. It was also a critical ingredient in glass, which is why the Gallo brothers bought the adjoining parcel. Democrat photo by Mike Roberts

Parker Development officials unveiled proposals for four large residential projects this week. If approved and built, the projects will further shape the community Bill Parker helped define, pumping more than $1 billion into the local economy, bringing jobs and providing rooftops local business owners say they need to survive.
