Monday April 16, tell the Prince George’s County Council: Our Community deserves clean air, clean water and safe streets!

/By Denise Hamler/ Please come out and oppose building a CONCRETE BATCHING PLANT across from the Bladensburg Waterfront Park in Bladensburg, MD.

The community has been fighting this proposed plant for almost a year and the next step is Monday, April 16 at 1:30 p.m. at the County Administration Building, Upper Marlboro.

The community will deliver our strong opposition to the Prince George’s County Council on why this is NOT what we want or need in our neighborhood.

The Port Towns Environmental Action (PTEA) previously filed an appeal on the Zoning Hearing Examiner’s decision to approve building a new concrete batching plant at the Ernest Maier operation in Bladensburg. The Prince George’s County Council will now hear the public's arguments and render their decision on the plant.

We need all who care about these issues to SHOW up in FORCE to oppose the plant at this April 16 hearing (1:30pm.)

Please wear ‘red’ to the hearing showing we want a ‘STOP’ to development that compromises our health and the health of our environment! We are standing for NO more air & water pollution and diesel exhaust. We deserve a community that is free of toxins and safe streets.  

You can help us in two ways:PGBetter_web_(2).png
