Thanks for your opinion... that is exactly why I started this petition.... we need to get the Uxbridge Town Residents talking about this... so thank you for your response and interest!
I am not so sure that the approximately and high ended quote of $100,000 to the town that was stated (at least for the first year, not sure about the following years ) will be enough to cover the repairs on the roads, and upkeep of the roads with at minimum 30 more asphalt trucks quite possibly coming through...

And in MA manufacturers equipment is considered personal property so this equipment will not be taxed in a manner that it will benefit the town.
I am also not sure if the tax benefit is going to outweigh the potential health risks and environmental concerns as we all have well water here in South Uxbridge. I am a tax payer here is Uxbridge... and I would rather pay the tax rate that I have now than breathe in toxins and smell asphalt outside the house in the yard that I pay taxes on.... and yes I know that they claim there will be a low level of toxins and that this will be "treated" so that the asphalt doesn't smell... Forgive me if I am extremely cynical about this and actually question it... low levels of toxins in our air and water are NOT acceptable!
SO I am more than happy to have more business in the town of Uxbridge... I just think that this particular proposal to the town REALLY NEEDS TO BE THOUGHT ABOUT CAREFULLY SO we can all make an informed decision about what is best for the Uxbridge Town Residents.

Jen your wood stove gives out more toxins than this would. This will bring in 30+ jobs to uxbridge. The road is not a town road it is a state road. With 30+ truck a day comes with fuel, food witch will be bought in town (more income in South Uxbridge) and we all know south needs it.

While it might bring 30+ jobs, Jen says only 5 jobs, how many of those jobs will be given to those living in Uxbridge? There's no guarantee. I agree that Uxbridge needs more business, but why a business like that? Why not another Fuzzy Grape? Both are equally toxic.
