A Fallston company has appealed a county ruling that denied zoning approval for a tree grinding and gravel excavation operation at a 56-acre site in Joppa.

T.C. Simons Inc. filed the appeal in Harford Circuit Court Wednesday asking the court to overturn a decision by the county Board of Zoning Appeals that upheld a March 19 ruling by the county Zoning Hearing Examiner.

The seven-member County Council, which sits as the appeals board,turned down Simons' request to set up the operations on two tracts on either side of Mountain Road near Singer Road.

Simons, a construction and contracting company established in 1972, wants to bring in rock, concrete and blacktop from construction sites to fill in the excavation site over the next five years.

The company also wanted tostore at least 100 construction vehicles and sell mulch and gravel.

Simons sought seven special zoning exceptions and variances from the county because the site proposed for the operations is zoned for agricultural uses.
