Councilman David Marks announced that an organic recycling company is no longer pursuing plans to open a plant at the former Vince’s Auto Parts site on Philadelphia Road in White Marsh.
“PEH Organics Recycling, Inc. will NOT be leasing Vince’s Auto (11235-11239 Philadelphia Rd) for a Composting Facility and therefore will not be seeking special exception approval for this use at this location,” the company’s attorney told Mark’s office in an email.
Marks added that there was controversy over the proposal as it was proposed my hid office, Delegate Kathy Szeliga, and Delegate candidate Ryan Nawrocki.
“This was always an issue of equity. We do not need another facility like this in the Philadelphia/Pulaski corridor,” Marks said.
“I want to hail the work done by Heather Patti, president of the White Marsh-Community Association. Ms. Patti put together a well-researched case and deserves a lot of credit for her work on behalf of the community. She went above and beyond.”
