Asphalt plant isn’t bad
Now hear the truth about Westport folks!
There are no bad smells or big dust clouds at all. Truck traffic on Route 10 will not stop and will continue to increase no matter what. I own a business that is 30 feet from Route 10 and there is no way to remove or stop dust from entering my building.
Now, the folks in Westport are at an advantage because they are thousands of feet away from Route 10. Now, Mr. Towne has only lived in this area three years and has no clue about birds or wildlife in this part of state and he should talk to N.H. Fish and Game. None of the claims being made about birds can be proven because that takes a very long time to do.
Now for the real punch: Just about all the residents in Westport village burn wood or fuel oil, which will pollute the air quality more than the asphalt would ever dream of. To add some more facts to the story, the owners of the plant have permits in place to mine minerals, crush stone, dynamite ledge, and possess all of that material, which will be taking place no matter what the asphalt does or does not do.
I, personally, feel that this is the greatest thing ever for the entire county and state of New Hampshire. We need more industry, revenue, jobs and so on.
