HILLVIEW, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Dozens of people in Hillview near Shepherdsville, Ky. are hoping to block a plan by the Rogers Group owned Bullitt County Stone Rock Quarry to expand by mining on farm land they currently lease. The group wants the Hillview council to approve rezoning about 300 acres of the land so it can mine next to the 600 acres it currently mines on.
 
People say there is some property damage, like cracks in pavement at their homes, from the company blasting and that the blasts make a lot of noise.
 
The Hillview Planning and Zoning Commission recommended the city council deny the rezoning.
 
A representative from the Rogers Group, who owns the quarry, had no comment after the meeting.
