Approval of Anderson Township mine overturned

ANDERSON TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - A Hamilton County judge overturned an Anderson Township zoning board's approval of a proposed underground mine on Thursday.

Martin Marietta Materials was given the green light to operate a limestone mine, which would be located near Broadwell Rd. and Round Bottom Rd.

The ruling is a big victory for the group CABOOM, or Citizens Against Blasting On Our Miami, who fought with Martin Marietta for months over the mine.

Martin Marietta can appeal the decision in court.
