In Statesville, The Good Air People Want a Variance

Maymead Inc., famous locally for trying to put an asphalt plant on the banks of the New River, is harassing Statesville with a proposal to restart a defunct asphalt plant 50 feet from the nearest residential property. Local ordinances demand 500 feet of separation, which is why Maymead goes before the Statesville Board of Adjustment today for a variance.

If Maymead fails, they say they have a trick up their sleeve ... subdividing the property, which will allow them to bypass the Board of Adjustment and go directly to the Statesville Town Council for approval.

They work hard, these guys, to get around local laws.
