Hearing on proposed plant reset

April 02, 1996

A zoning appeals board hearing on a Pennsylvania corporation's request to build a concrete plant in Finksburg, which had been scheduled for last Friday, has been rescheduled for May 6.

The hearing will be at 9: 30 a.m. at the Agriculture Center, 700 Agriculture Drive, Westminster.

Westminster attorney William MacDonald, recently retained by neighborhood residents, asked for the delay to give him time to ** prepare a case against the plant.

The board granted the delay but rejected Finksburg-area resident Neil Ridgely's request to have the hearing at night so that people would not have to take time off from their jobs to attend.
