Army Corps of Engineers Reschedules Titan Meeting

By Peter Biello

Wilmington, NC – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has moved the public hearing for residents to voice concerns about the proposed cement plant in New Hanover County.

Due to a scheduling conflict and the lack of air conditioning at Laney High School, the Corps moved the hearing to Wilmington Christian Academy on July 1st.

The Corps will use the public's concerns to figure out if Titan Cement should build on the proposed location in Castle Hayne along the banks of the Northeast Cape Fear River.

Henry Wicker is with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

"If we don't go to the local population and the people and talk to them and find out what's going on, then we won't know what their concerns are. So that's really what this is all about it. It's to say, 'Tell us what you're concerned about.' So we can address them in our Environmental impact statement."

Residents have until mid-July to mail in comments. Wicker says the public will also have a chance to comment on the first draft of the Impact Statement, which will most likely be released late next year.
