I strongly oppose the approval of #SUP2019-00026. I urge the members of the board to seriously consider the community's voice and concerns. There are severe negative implications, i.e., health, safety, future growth of the community, etc. that needs to be considered before the vote. I understand there may be financial benefits for the city if the plan is approved, but it will be at the risk of deterring further major growth of the community as a whole.
My husband and I are opposed to the approval of the Special Use Permit (SUP2019-0026) allowing Allan Myers to build an asphalt plant on Bethlehem Road. The roads are too congested without having more dump trucks. Also, it raises a number of health issues. It would have a negative impact on the market value of homes in the area. There are already a number of asphalt plants in the area -- it is not necessary for one to be build in a residential area. Please REJECT this Special Use Permit!
I am opposed to the approval of the Special Use Permit (SUP2019-0026), please do not allow Allan Myers to build an asphalt plant on Bethlehem Road!
This paving project presents itself with nothing but negatives, except for that of the company’s main vested interest of it’s own future growth and monetary gains. I oppose with a strong NO as a new resident. I have a family of 5, whose health is put at a very high risk with this project implemented! I’m shocked and appalled that this area so close to several family communities and school zones, that this would even be a consideration!
Thank you for your time,
The health of the families in the surrounding area should take precedent over building another plant.
We do not need any additional asphalt plants in our area. And this will bring additional dump truck traffic to our already congested roads. Rt 234 by the Stone House is almost always in very bad shape due to the existing truck traffic. No more asphalt plants.
There are too many trucks in the area already!!! To add more is bad for the area and bad for environment
Please vote to DENY this asphalt plant's special use permit in Manassas. My family of four, which includes 2 kids under the age 5, can see the potential future plant from the patio of our new townhouse. Undoubtedly, this plant would directly and adversely affect the community's health & safety, the local roads, noise level, and area traffic. Please vote against this plant's SUP. Our future depends on it. Thank you for your consideration.
My wife and I are opposed to the asphalt plant. We can deal with traffic,it is still a nuisance...but we cannot live with the health concerns that the asphalt plant would bring. We have lost multiple family members to cancer and do not want to expose ourselves to anything that increases the odds of declining our health...not to mention all the children in the school 1200ft from where the plant is proposing to be set up.
I am asking you to VOTE and Deny permit. This asphalt plant will drastically increase traffic in front of my home, health concerns for the neighborhood and school and decrease home value.
The health and safety of the children at Mullen elementary, of my community, and the healthy and safety of those with pre existing health conditions are the main reasons I am OPPOSED. The increased traffic on narrow, curvy roads also are very concerning. Please vote to DENY this permit!
Please do not allow this to be approved. The negative traffic and health repercussions are very concerning to me.
As a new homeowner in a brand new development on Bethlehem and Coverstone,
this asphalt plant will drastically increase traffic day and night in front of my home! Children won't play outside due to the risks in their own front yards. The value of my new home will certainly take a hit. I am opposed to the approval of the Special Use Permit (SUP2019-0026) allowing Allan Myers to build an asphalt plant on Bethlehem Road. I am asking you to VOTE TO DENY THIS PERMIT.
The traffic area is heavily traveled by commuters and local business trucks. There are frequent traffic accidents in the area that will be on the increase with more industrial asphalt plant trucks. Bethlehem Road is a narrow two lane road built years ago. The noise and pollution from the plant, so near an elementary school, will have negative impacts on the children and families living close to the plant. My 3 year old grandson lives near this site, A concerned PWC grandmother.

Why would anyone allow a new residential community and asphalt plant to be developed right along each other. This lacks basic common sense and human decency. You are basically allowing the residents of the community to expose themselves and their children to cancer causing fumes. Why would anyone want to move to Prince William County if the people who were voted to protect its community refuse to do it or don't have the common sense to do it?
This project should not be approved! It will have a very negative impact on the residential neighborhoods, school, health and future growth. The county and BOCS should be held responsible if this is approved.
If this gets approved, the county and the BOCS will be held responsible and judged in the future appropriately on the impact to residential neighborhoods, schools and health. I doubt this current board would want to be the ones approving a cancer producing mill so close to residential neighborhoods. While the application may appeal to "safe", lets just remember at one point asbestos was considered safe also.
I live in a condominium near the proposed plant. I have asthma; a friend in my building has immune deficiency; another neighbor lives with her 95 year old mother who has breathing issues. The playground of Mullen Elementary would be affected by the chemicals. While this plant might provide short term gains, I believe those would be outweighed by the long term health costs.
PWC needs to think about buffer areas between M1 heavy industrial and residential zoning to keep a high quality of life in PWC. A two lane winding road is not a sufficient buffer zone to keep the byproducts of heavy industrial business (harmful chemical byproducts, noise from truck traffic, noise from industrial processes, 24 hr operation, etc) away from residential occupants and Mullen Elementary students and teachers.
