League of Women Voters holds Titan forum

People concerned about Titan America's plan to bring a cement plant to New Hanover County can get their questions answered tonight. The League of Women Voters is holding the public forum tonight at the Northeast Branch of the New Hanover County Public Library. The goal is to educate people about Titan Cement's impact on the environment. We know Titan America would bring more jobs to our area. That is why county commissioners offered Titan a $4 million incentive -- to bring jobs and money. However, there are groups of people concerned about how the air quality will be affected. If Titan cement comes, they plan to operate at the old Roanoke Cement Plant located near the northeast Cape Fear River. The state is currently reviewing Titan's air quality permit. Tonight's forum starts at 6:00.
