The proposal for an asphalt plant has raised concerns from nearby residents about air quality, odors, noise, and declining property values. Nearly 1,100 people signed a petition opposing the project. Several neighbors joined Planning Commissioners on a tour of the Virginia Paving Co. asphalt plant in Alexandria April 13 to see how that company handles environmental issues.
Mason District’s Planning Commissioner Julie Strandlie has offered to meet with members of the community to discuss process and substance related to the Vulcan project. She can be reached at Julie.firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Board of Supervisors’ public hearing on the Vulcan proposal was deferred to July 10.
