Successfully opposed NEW PLANET ENERGY
New Planet Energy plans to bring untested technology to our town to gasify New York City garbage into a petrol additive.
The Stony Point Town Board want to change the zoning laws of Stony Point to allow this development. It is our fear that they've opened the floodgates for heavy industrialization of the waterfront in Stony Point.
The proposal is now being vetted by the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC).
We're concerned about the Town of Stony Point's communication with it's citizens in regards to this project, as many know nothing of it. This garbage gasification plant will not only lower our property values by emitting smells increasing storage of dangerous chemicals but it will also increase truck traffic and, essentially, make Stony Point a dump for New York City garbage.
Stony Point Democrats believe that our town is not the correct place to host the nation's largest garbage to gas plant.
Bringing New Planet Energy to Stony Point will result int a reduction in the quality of life as we know it, and it does not work to create a sustainable future for our home.
Only public pressure can stop this plant from moving forward!
Join us in the resistance.
