DRPS has heard that the Muth farm may have been sold yesterday - possibly to JBRK, LLC or one of their owners. However, regardless of who owns the farm, a conditional use hearing is required for the Mulch Facility and that only means that we need to double our efforts to stop this proposed project on this farm and others in Agricultural Preserve in Howard County.
Dayton Rural Preservation Society has been working closely with Greg Fox to relay our concerns and make sure they are included in his proposed zoning amendment. In addition, on Friday, we submitted our own amendment to the zoning board. Our hope is that with these proposed amendments we will prevent large, industrial mulch facilities from ever being considered in Rural Conservation and Rural Residential areas anywhere in the county. The attached Howard CountyTimes article gives some added perspective on Greg Fox's efforts and the JBRK, LLC response.
