ALLOWS for Tier I and Tier II composting, which means on Howard County ag, RR and RC composting of grass, leaves, food waste, manure and in some case animal carcasses is allowed (3-5 acres near you).
Why was this Project Proposed in Dayton?
Existing RLO Corporation Mulching Facility in Elkridge, Maryland is currently zoned Industrial but will soon be zoned Residential. Now hoping to move to Dayton in Ag Pres and DRPS does not view this as the type of farming activity the new zoning laws intended. DRPS would instead like to see JRBK keep these type of facilities in industrial areas.
In response to the JBRK LLC proposed project:
"We think it has no use
in rural Dayton," said John Tegeris, President of the Dayton
Rural Preservation Society, LLC, a group formed to fight the composting
facility. "We are going to fight this thing, he said, even if it takes us
multiple levels, multiple years through the process to win this for the
community." ~ Baltimore Sun, Amanda Yeager, 2.21.14
