Your responses will be submitted to DPER as a public comment for applications SHOR18-0032 and COMM18-0014.
Resources for your Public Comments
Representative Bergquist goes over survey results on the proposed asphalt plant. In short, most respondents do not want the asphalt plant at all. Respondents believe serious mitigation of the adverse effects of the plant would be needed if Lakeside is ultimately allowed to occupy this site. This includes the days and hours of plant operation, the number of trucks allowed per day, and the ban of production of reclaimed asphalt pavement.

1. it will take a week or 2 to complete intake processing
2. DPER has 28 days to determine if it is complete, if they fail to make that determination it automatically becomes complete

4. Once the application is deemed complete, DPER will process a Notice of Application with a public comment period. They will attempt to post public application documents to the website at that time.
5. They do not anticipate that notice to go out for approximately 4+ weeks.

Please Attend the Community Meeting and Protest - Sat 13th!
Asphalt plants mix gravel and sand with crude oil derivatives to make the asphalt used to pave roads, highways, and parking lots across the U.S. These plants release millions of pounds of chemicals to the air during production each year, including many cancer-causing toxic air pollutants such as arsenic, benzene, formaldehyde, and cadmium. Other toxic chemicals are released into the air as the asphalt is loaded into trucks and hauled from the plant site, including volatile organic compounds, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (1AHs), and very fine condensed particulates.[EPA]
