WESTMINSTER -- The Board of Zoning Appeals of Carroll County has approved an amendment to a former case allowing Maryland Paving Inc. of Finksburg to increase production capacity.

The bituminous concrete company asked for an increase from 140 to 240 tons per hour.

The board approved the request, based on its previous authorization of the plant's production capacity and the fact that increased production may reduce the operational time of the plant.

In addition, the company is incorporating a silencer to reduce the plant's noise level.

The board also imposed the following conditions on the plant:

*Landscape screening shall be established as shown on the company's site plan.

* A proposed stockade fence along the westerly and northwesterly perimeter of the storage yard shall be at least 6-feet high.

* The contractor's equipment storage yard shall be surfacedwith calcium chloride to minimize dust.

* The final grading plan shall be incorporated in the board-required revised site development plan.

* Damaged or unusable equipment can't be stored on site.
