Appeals board to consider rubble landfill WEST COUNTY -- Crofton * Odenton * Fort Meade * Gambrills


The Board of Appeals will meet tonight to continue deliberations on a rubble landfill near Crofton.

Board members could make a decision at this meeting on the Chesapeake Terrace project, which was the subject of the longest series of hearings ever before the panel.

The Silver Spring-based Halle Co. wants to put the landfill on 150 acres of a 480-acre parcel off Conway Road near Route 3. The company also wants to operate a sand and gravel operation on 35 acres.

The project is opposed by many community groups, including Crofton, and the county.

Concerns about the anticipated 300 trucks that will go through ++ the intersection prompted an administrative hearing officer to rule against the company in March 1991.

At the last appeals board hearing, members were trying to reach agreement on what kind of restrictions they could place against the company, should they grant approval.
