JEFFERSON COUNTY, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

The Jefferson County Planning and Zoning Commission has recommended that plans for a sand pit near Hillsboro not be approved.

The board voted 7-0 against rezoning 295 acres of woods near Hillsboro that would allow a sand mine to be built.

Many nearby residents are against the project saying it would change the landscape.

The Jefferson County Council could still approve re-zoning.
