Neighbors, parents, landowners, and businesses along this highway 46 corridor are very concerned about this proposed concrete batch plant and we have all joined together in an unprecedented effort to fight this. We are deeply concerned about the health impacts from this facility, particularly to our children at our school and the elderly who live nearby. We are deeply concerned about the very small particles of dust and silica that the facility proposes to emit right next to a school that caters to children from infants to middle school. Children are particularly sensitive to air pollution more so than adults. This type of permit they have applied for does not really review these type of adverse health impacts in this circumstance with school children nearby.
