A battle over a proposal to develop a gravel mine in West Bloomfield could come to an end Thursday.

The Town Board will decide during a special meeting whether to change zoning laws. If approved, the new laws could prevent the mine from being developed.

Elam Sand and Gravel Corporation wants to build the mine on Strong Road near Route 64. Many people who live nearby are concerned about possible health problems, water contamination and too much noise.

The meeting begins at 7 p.m.
