Voice Your Opposition to Concrete Plant on Old Conn Path

Filed under: Around Town,Politics by News Staff at 3:12 pm on November 30, 2009

FRAMINGHAM, MA - Paulini Loam LLC continues its quest for a permit to build a concrete plant at 597 Old Connecticut Path. Although meeting opposition from abutters, the Town permitting officials, and Town Meeting since 2005, Paulini is pursuing permission through the courts and through the ZBA.

The proposed plant would be located behind Suburban Shell Service Station and adjacent to Cochituate Brook Reservation, the Cochituate Rail Trail, Reardon Park, and the Oaks Neighborhood. Neighbors feel that not only will the plant negatively impact the area, but also add to the already heavy traffic along Old Connecticut Path.

The next ZBA hearing about a special permit is scheduled for Wednesday, December 9, at 8:30 p.m. in the Blumer Room in the Memorial Building.

Residents interested in voicing their opinions are urged to attend the meeting and to sign an online petition. The petition already has more than 375 signatures.
