Southern Crushed Concrete faces opposition to its permit for a concrete plant in Houston

Southern Crushed Concrete is facing opposition from residents to its permit application to operate a temporary batch concrete plant in Southwest Houston, Texas.

Southwest Houston residents nearly filled the Westbury High School auditorium July 29 to voice near-unanimous concern, if not downright opposition, to a temporary concrete batch plant proposed near the Willow Waterhole Greenspace.

Southern Crushed Concrete, LCC, plans to operate the plant at its property at 5001 Gasmer Dr. (between two large portions of the greenspace) for 180 days to mix concrete for three nearby bridge projects on the Union Pacific railroad, according to company manager Jim Miller.

Miller, the SCC manager, succinctly summed up the company’s justification for the batch plant at the outset of his presentation.

“We own the property, number one. Number two, we have a contract” to provide concrete for the UP railroad projects, he said.

After the initial presentations, residents voiced concerns and asked questions about the company’s operation.
