Zoning committee recommends against Rockton asphalt plant permit

Written by  CSI Media News

The Winnebago County Zoning Committee on Wednesday voted to reject a special use permit that would allow an asphalt plant to operate along Black’s Quarry in Rockton.

 The final decision, however, is up to the full Winnebago County Board, which meets March 9, 2017.

 The vote against the permit was 6-1, according to the Rockford Register-Star.

 Rockford-based Northern Illinois Service Co.

 is seeking to build the plant.

 Two map amendments to rezone the area from agricultural to general industrial also were shot down, 4-3, by the committee.

 The zoning committee vote comes after significant opposition from residents who expressed concerns that the asphalt plant would have an adverse effect on property taxes, health, traffic and the environment.
