Despite Concerns, Asphalt Plant A Go After Approval by County Commissioners

The Pennington County Commissioners approved a rezoning request to pave the way for a controversial asphalt plant. According to the Rapid City Journal, the plant will be built near a mobile home community and the Dakota Fields Sports Complex, despite the health concerns of residents in the area and of the complex. The concerns included noise and air pollution coming from the plant as well as increased heavy traffic on a county road not designed for it. Check out the meeting agenda here.
