WAIC President Cindy Chapman submitted a letter today to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) about the pending environmental permit application by Southern Crushed Concrete. The letter contained this resolution approved by the WAIC Board of Directors at the August 20, 2014 meeting: After discussion and deliberation regarding the pending environmental permit application # 119443L001 by Southern Crushed Concrete for its site located in the Westbury area and in the Westbury Super Neighborhood, we believe that the proposed plant operation will have significant negative impact on the health, safety, and well-being of residents, students, and the general public in the Westbury area. We oppose the permit application and request a contested hearing.
