NEXT PLANNING BOARD HEARING
The proposed Temple St. Asphalt Plant will go before the Planning Board for the first time on: March 23, 2023 at 7:00 in the City Hall Auditorium.
Newport Construction has proposed the construction of an asphalt plant on Temple Street, which will be as close as 100' from nearby properties that have been approved for redevelopment as badly needed housing. Construction of all previously approved housing development in the area–hundreds of new units–have been put on hold, as developers believe the proposed plant will destroy their property values. Newport Construction has a poor reputation in Westford and Chelmsford, MA, where they have another plant and have created problems for residents. The issue is non-partisan. Construction of this plant is bad for Nashua.
A visibility event opposing the plant will be held THIS Friday (3/17) in conjunction with a number of community groups. Please reach out to Pastor Kristy Besada (email@example.com) for details, which are developing now.
Another visibility event will be held at City Hall immediately prior to the Planning Board meeting (3/23), and we will be asking folks to bring signs and stand outside City Hall in a show of support for the neighbors who will be affected if the plan is approved. Some will meet at the church and walk down together.
This is a developing situation. Please watch next week's blast, social media and worship announcements for more details with regard to the ways you can help.
And as always, please write to the planning board at firstname.lastname@example.org to register your concerns with the board.
