Crisfield says no to rezoning for the company CleanBay Renewables to buy the Carvel Hall property on Route 413.

City Manager Rick Pollitt told the Salisbury Daily Times that the 3-to-2 vote against zoning amendment was not unexpected.

The paper reports that it was an emotional vote with a larger than normal crowd showing up for the meeting that was moved to the Crisfield High School auditorium.  

The facility would have recycled chicken manure to produce fertilizer and electricity.

The public comments expressed concern about contamination and taxes.
