Hearing Continues Over Proposed Rockton Asphalt Plant
Discussion continues over a proposed asphalt plant at Black's Quarry near Rockton.
The Rockford Register-Star reports Northern Illinois Service Co. wants a special use permit to build the facility. However, residents are concerned about disruptive effects of the plant, including a lowering of property values and poor smell.
About 70 residents attended Tuesday's hearing, and it will continue tonight at 5:30 PM. If the Winnebago County Zoning Board of Appeals makes a recommendation, it will go before the Zoning Committee and full Winnebago County Board next month.
