Bringing clean manufacturing business into Falls Township. Oppose building Elcon, similar facilities in Falls. Clean Air Ordinance should have been passed to deter Elcon from locating here. Can be done at the local level. Concerned existing air quality doesn't meet what is mandated by DEP, this has not/is not being addressed. Transport of hazardous waste would bring it within hundreds of yards of an elementary school on the egress ramp to Tyburn Road. When a spill occurs at this location or any other County road during transport, would be catastrophic. Poll residents & inquire what type of companies they would favor being added to the community, what interests them. Ongoing support of police dealing with drug issues. Increase in MV accidents, distracted drivers, driving safety habits. Coordinate with police, advise residents through public forums, mailings, media, re-education. Provide Community center for older teens to gather with their peers, participate in activities of interest.
Falls Township has been my home for many years. I am certain that a plan to bring a Hazardous Waste processing facility into our township is not the best viable option, encouraging clean business would be. We need to ensure the health, safety & welfare of our most precious residents, our children and grandchildren. They are the future. Permitting Elcon to build in Falls would only open the door to other potentially unsafe businesses. When the proposed building area & the existing sites around it are designated as a Superfund site, clean up would be relegated to future generations at taxpayers' expense. I don't think that current Falls Township residents want this to be their legacy. The long term, local & global effects on both Falls and surrounding municipalities needs to be considered and addressed so Falls will continue to be the township where citizens choose to relocate. I will continue to support the Falls Police Dept. in their ongoing efforts to alleviate the Opioid Epidemic.
