(Richmond, IN)--A proposal to convert about 29 acres of land near the intersection of I-70 and U.S. 27 into an asphalt mixing plant was addressed for about an hour and a half when Richmond Common Council met Monday night. Milestone Contractors wants to move from New Paris Pike to a location that was once home to Delucio and Sons. Opponents addressed council Monday night and said they feared issues like noise, smell, and water contamination. A Milestone manager countered by telling Council that the plant would comply with all state and federal regulations. Council decided to hold the zoning issue over for two weeks to allow for more input and research.
