News-mayor100720

(Nashua) -- The Mayor has released a statement regarding the proposed asphalt plant:

“I am opposed to adding an asphalt production plant to the property at 145 Temple Street, east of Nashua’s Main Street."

“An asphalt plant at that location would create detrimental environmental issues, add noise and traffic, all of which would have a negative impact on neighborhood residents. Furthermore, it is counter to our goal to evolve that area into a residential neighborhood."

“An asphalt production plant would impact nearby property values and is inconsistent with the City’s 2022 Master Plan and the East Hollis Street Master Plan, including a beautiful Rail Trail that is planned directly adjacent to the Newport property. We have engaged an appraisal firm to evaluate the impact an asphalt plant would have on surrounding property values."

“I am urging the Planning Board to consider the requirements of the overlay zoning and deny this petition.”

The next Planning Board meeting is scheduled for January 19, 2023. Citizens can attend and express their opinions on the proposed asphalt plant. If you have questions or want to be updated on the meeting date, contact PlanningDepartment@NashuaNH.gov.
