Quarry zoning meeting set

Tuesday, July 26 at 6 p.m.

Via The Green Environmental Commission:

The Xenia Township Zoning Clerk set a meeting for the Xenia Township Zoning Commission Hearing of the Cemex request for zoning change for July 26th, 2011 at 6PM.

Meeting place will be Norman Ward Center Ballroom 1400 Brush Row Road at Central State University.

The request is for a change from Agriculture to Mineral Extraction zoning.

The previous meeting for this hearing, June 16th at the Xenia Township Building had to be cancelled because there were so many people wanting to express their objections that the building couldn't hold them.

It is important that everyone attend who objects to the expansion of the Cemex Quarry Operations to the east side of Route 235 bounded by W. Hyde Road and W, Enon Road. The Company has told their employees and retirees to be at the Hearing, wearing Cemex T-Shirts.

This operation would be a threat to water supplies, bring more air pollution and damage to properties located within a mile of the quarry.

Homes in the area are subject to lower values as a result.

Please attend this meeting.
