NEW HANOVER COUNTY-- Loulie Scharf and her son were a part of the large crowd concerned about Titan cement setting up shop at the old Roanoke plant in New Hanover County. "It's silly to bring it here." Scharf Says. Tuesday nights Titan forum at the New Hanover County library was an effort to educate residents about the environmental impacts the plan could have on the community. The forum was sponsored by the League of Women Voters and the Council of Neighborhood Associations. Ilse Henagan represents C.O.N.A. "We want to know the pros and the cons so we can make an educated and informed decision." A Scientist, Professor and Enviromentalists made up the panel and were on hand to answer questions from the audience. Titan reps declined to come to the meeting, where panelists informed residents that pollutants from the plant could pose severe threats to water and air quality. Despite residents concerns, Titan continues to move forward--gaining the necessary permits to make the new cement plant a reality. Starting in September, the company plans to hold a series of workshops for concerned residents. Worshop Dates and Locations: Tuesday, September 16, 4 - 8 pm. North Branch, Cape Fear Community College, in Castle Hayne, NC. Tuesday, October 7, 4 - 8 pm. Schartz Center, Cape Fear Community College, Downtown Wilmington Monday, October 27, 4 - 8 pm. UNCW Executive Development Center, Wilmington.
