JEFFERSON TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WDTN) – The Jefferson Township zoning board puts the brakes on the plans for a controversial compost facility Tuesday night.
The proposed site would have been along Dayton-Farmersville Road in an area many at the meeting said is too close to homes, farms, and a creek.
More than 200 people attended the meeting, most against the proposal.
Complaints ranged from lack of appropriate infrastructure, bad odors, and increased trash.
Steve Rauch, who owns a trucking and demolition company in Dayton was one of the men proposing that facility.
After the decision was announced, he told 2 NEWS he is not counting the facility out yet.
The vote by the Jefferson Township zoning board to deny the facility came after an hour in executive session.
