Developer Kingdon Gould Jr. has proposed a $15 million quarry operation for 100 acres in eastern Howard County.The proposal is "in the very preliminary stages, and we are meeting with the community to seek its support," he said yesterday. "Without substantial community support, the project is a non-starter."He said the site, the 600-acre Chase property, which he owns, is zoned for industrial-type development."There is a unique deposit of Baltimore gabbro on the property, and I am told by the state that it is the only such deposit in Maryland," Gould said.
