Tulsa residents divided over plant proposal, USA
Published: 08 December 2010

Tulsa County residents are divided over whether or not they want a cement plant in their background.
But Tulsa Dynaspan wants to build one in an undeveloped area in west Tulsa.

Some people say the plant would bring much needed jobs and development to the area. But its location, right next to an elementary school and homes, has others saying that cement and the neighbourhood simply don’t mix.

The controversy stems from a vacant lot of 10 acres which is zoned for agricultural use.
Tulsa Dynaspan wants to change the zoning to industrial, and put in the cement plant. That request was denied by the county planning commission this summer, but the company is appealing the decision.
