Asphalt Plant



My name is James Clark, and I am a Boy Scout in Seekonk. I am working on the communication merit badge, and one of the things that I have to do is email a local newspaper about an issue I care about. Luckily, there is an issue I care about going on - which is the asphalt plant. I think that the asphalt plant would be a terrible decision and that it could cause many problems for animals and the ecosystem. Also, it would be an eyesore that would be right next to a really nice path. Having a factory looming in the background would take away from the beauty of the trail. Everything would be affected by this plant. The money that would be made from this plant wouldn't be worth the damage to the environment. Not only would it be an eyesore, but it could also severely damage the environment. Since it is a wetland, many things live there, and the asphalt plant would cause issues for all of the living things. People would also be damaged, as asphalt plants can cause rashes, headaches and more. I just want to make sure that I am one more voice against this issue and that the newspaper continues to follow the issue.

Thank you,

James Clark
