Soccer Complex Group Raises Concerns with Proposed Asphalt Plant

A recent Pennington County Commission meeting on possible rezoning of an area a mile west of the Dakota Fields Sports Complex to allow for a proposed asphalt plant drew a large amount of concern from local soccer groups. The Rapid City Journal reports that the concerns included possible air quality issues near the complex, as well as unpleasant odors and increased truck traffic that would result if the plant is built at that location. The Commission denied the rezoning permit, but it could come up again at a later date. Check out the agenda for the meeting at this link.
