There will be no inert landfill on Nowhere Road, at least not for the time being.
James (Jimbo) and Connie Arnold, of 10315 Nowhere Road, withdrew their request Friday for a conditional use permit for an inert landfill for concrete recycling, according to planning and zoning administrator Linda Fortson.
The planning and zoning commission was scheduled to hold the first of two public hearings on the matter on Tuesday, March 17, followed by a second hearing before the board of commissioners Monday, April 6.
Fortson said her office has received numerous phone calls about the landfill since the application was filed.
“We had a lot of calls and a lot of people came by the office, and they were not in favor of it,” Fortson said. She said that neighboring property owners were concerned about the noise from the “grinder” and about run-off from the property.
The Arnolds had requested the permit for a four to five acre portion of a 25.02 acre tract that is currently zoned A-1 which contains the Arnolds’ home, a horse barn and a shop.
