Residents Prepare To Oppose Simons

November 11, 1990

A group of Joppa residents will ask the county zoning hearing examiner on Nov. 20 to reject a Fallston company's plan to start a tree-grinding and mining operations off Mountain Road.

The group, called the Mountain Road Defenders Association, will present testimony during a hearing showing why the plan by T. C. Simons Inc. for a 56-acre tract next to their neighborhood should be rejected.

The Nov. 20 meeting will be the third hearing in Simons' request for four special exceptions needed to set up the tree-grinding and gravel-extraction operations on a 56-acre site, part of which borders the Green Spring Hills community.

During the first two hearings -- on Oct. 29 and this past Monday -- company representatives outlined plans for the site.

The community association, which has about 40 members who live in Green Spring Hills, oppose the plan because they fear the operations would bring large trucks into the neighborhood, cause loud noise and lower property values.
