Cullion Concrete Plant

2 posts in this topic

"Cullion Concrete has been building a concrete plant in the Eden Park neighborhood in Cranston which has chronic flooding. The neighbors are upset about the plant and have formed a group to try and stop it.

Cranston Mayor Michael Napolitano is expected to announce a plan today to buy out the Cullion Concrete batching plant that is being built off Pontiac Avenue. "

Update this morning on Channel 10. The mayor of Cranston said that the permits would be returned to the city and the plant would be demolished.

The weird thing is that originally the city had designated that land along the Pawtuxet River for use as open space - with hiking trails, canoe launch, etc - but somewhere along the way the plan got shelved.

It looks like the land will finally return to its proper use. Much of it is in the flood plain anyway - I can't see how the Concrete Plant got the proper DEM permits to begin with, even after the explanations from the article below:
