Some of you may have heard that JBRK, LLC has proposed two locations for his mulch facilities, one in Sykesville and the other here in Dayton. Sykesville held their community meeting tonight, and the Sykesville farm's owner, Shiree Stedding, announced to a large crowd that she had decided to sell the farm to a true farmer and not JBRK, LLC.! It was a very dramatic and emotional scene for everyone in attendance. We expect that the new owner will not allow for industrial uses such as those proposed by JBRK, LLC, but the zoning laws still allow this and the battle is not over for those of us in Howard County. Sykesville is now supporting our efforts in continuing to oppose large industrial uses of farms in Agricultural Preserve.
