A public hearing is being held regarding a SUP for zoning changes that would allow an additional batch plant and asphalt plant to be located in Joppa (residents prefer Joppee) - an area landlocked by industry with the Trinity on its other boundary. The issue will come up no earlier than 1 p.m.
Both the Dallas Sierra Club and Public Citizen have been on the forefront of this issue, meeting and talking with Councilman Kevin Felder. Both groups attended his most recent town hall meeting where residents voted NOT to have these plants in their area due to pollution.
Dallas Sierra Club members, Chris and Dick Guldi and David Griggs along with TCE members canvassed the neighborhood, finding the majority of residents against this permit.
Please attend the Council Meeting this Wed., March 28, at 1 p.m. We will have stickers for you to wear to signify your support of this neighborhood plagued by air pollution. Bodies in the room matter along with those experts and Joppa citizens who will speak along with other organizations.
