HAPPENING TONIGHT: Public hearing on proposed Titan America plant


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- A public hearing is scheduled to discuss a revised air quality permit for Titan America.

The cement company applied for a permit to build a plant in Castle Hayne.

The N.C. Division of Air Quality has prepared a revised draft that sets limits for all applicable air quality standards for the proposed facility.

The public hearing tonight will give people a chance to comment on the air permit revisions.

The N.C. Division of Air Quality initially issued an air permit for the proposed cement plant in February 2012.

Titan has applied for an application extension for construction, because the company is not ready to break ground on the new plant.

The public hearing is scheduled for 6:00pm in Kenan Auditorium at UNCW.

Ref:Titan public hearing aug 5 2013

I Justin LaNasa have been following this titan hearing process now since it started and I have been to 3 overwhelmingly anti titan Public hearings by the citizens of New Hanover County. I am asking you what are the purpose of these Public hearings???? It is very clear and evident that the wants of the people are not a factor on your decision on air permits!!!!!! can you please explain to me you guidelines for conducting these hearings.What you are looking for and what possible outcome and parameters you are working in???? or Are these meeting just smoke and mirrors like it seems. To defuse a possible volatile community ??? please go into great detail I don't mind


Justin W. LaNasa

FYI: you can email this guy your concerns on titan if you didn't make it tonight till Friday


I, Vog46 have read your comment and declare the following:

Justin - you're an ass.

15A North Carolina Administrative Code 02Q.0517

Like all states, the NCAC requires a public hearing be held.
Is it a mere formality? Probably. However, the company gets to gauge the public's reaction to their potential use of this site.
