Guadalupe neighborhood residents protest concrete plant

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - On Friday morning, a Lubbock neighborhood protested the building of a concrete plant near their homes.

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) approved the location for two Highland Company batch plants at 401 North Avenue K.

This comes after several residents from the Guadalupe Neighborhood Association filed complaints because they were concerned about possible health risks due to the plant's location.

"We feel this is a cause that needs to be taken on by everyone in this city because we want to assure a safe and healthy environment for all our children and elderly and all our adults in our community," says Carlos Quirno, Jr., President of the Guadalupe Neighborhood Association.

Guadalupe Neighborhood Association residents say they are still determined to prevent the building of these concrete plants.
