Default A Dump In The Middle Of The Villages

Judging from the permit renewal request published in the Daily Sun, the dump operating in the middle of the new area will continue to operate. I wonder how, or if, they will screen the road from 466A into the dump and if the landscaping around the top of the dump will be improved. Even now you can see piles of concrete and other rubble from various parts of Morse Blvd. Lots of heavy, dusty dump trucks going to and fro, and pushing all that stuff around in the pit, covering it with dusty dirt, etc. I wouldn't want to live near that thing! I wonder what will be disclosed to the potential home buyers.
So far they all they have done is to build a couple of golf courses on the west side of the dump.

Is is a garbage dump or just construction debris (e.g. rubble, concrete, dirt)?

It's construction debris. Nothing to be alarmed about. It'll be gone when construction is complete.

I guess you could go to the public hearing to express your concerns. You did see that date in the article?

Gone as in "gone" or gone as in covered up?

It's been there and will be there. No big deal it's only construction debris. Where pray tell would you like them to haul it. This is not new it's a renewal to continue use. It does not stink like garbage. Just looks like a mountain with landscaping on it. Gee

Hey Jim

We have lived south of 466A for almost two years and just learned about this landfill operation a few months ago. Although it is about an 8-10 min cart ride away we haven't been exposed to any of the conditions you are concerned about. We do appreciate your heads-up.

Don

Almost forgot, I like your tag line, it fits your topic perfectly

I think it is a very valid concern. Depending on how that land can, or might be used, in the future it could be a very big concern.

Are there any limits regarding the use of it as a dump now and in the future?

Is there any form a reclamation plan in place with an established timeline?

Dumps sometimes have a bad habit of being expanded both in size and scope over time!!! It happens more than you might expect.
