We have enough concrete plants surrounding our state and don't need to impact our quality of life any further. Our resources in this coastal community are ours to protect regardless of what other neighbors say about these facilities. I'm in construction and cannot support the possibility of contributing to more "state of the art" plants that can further degredate our ecosystem as well as my children and their life to come. "State of the Art" only means that they have found a way to extract the materials needed in a more efficient and profitable manner and allow for byproducts to be categorized as minimal impact to the enviroment. Reports can be altered but my childrens health is a one shot deal. I can't go back and clean it up later.
