The Pikeview Quarry is located in the foothills just west of Colorado Springs. The city council is set to vote on Tuesday whether to spend $2.7 million on purchasing another 61 acres of land to use for open space. The aim of the reclamation project is to create a landscape with more trees and other vegetation. The property is a mix of hills and flat areas. It is approximately one mile north of Queen’s Quarry. The city will fund the project with funding from the city’s Trails, Open Space and Parks fund and The Conservation Fund.
