The City of Fort Collins will host a public listening session with the Colorado Department of Public Health and the Environment and the Citizens Against Asphalt Toxins from 6-8 p.m. Wednesday, May 14 in the Lincoln Center Columbine Room, 417 W. Magnolia St.
The meeting will be an informal listening session for citizens to express concerns regarding the asphalt plant and for officials to present information about the state’s air permitting and public comment process. The meeting is being held in response to Martin Marietta Materials’ recent application for an air permit for its asphalt plant at 1800 N. Taft Hill Road. The application will be reviewed and a decision on the air permit will be made by the state in the next few weeks.
State health department officials will listen to concerns, but will not take public testimony or comments at this meeting and will not provide written response to comments heard at this meeting. City officials as well as local state representatives will also be on hand to hear from residents about their concerns with the asphalt plant and the air permit process.
