Stop the Woburn Quarry
After more than 25 years, we citizens of Woburn, Burlington and Wilmington have come together
to ask you for your help. We are looking to stop the creation of a quarry within a residential development. We have discovered that there are significant environmental, health and safety
risks that will be imposed by the quarry and gravel operation
The Dolben Companies, once they have removed 416,000 cubic yards of rock, with 32,000 truck trips past two elementary schools and a day care center, will build affordable housing. We estimate that they will then sell this material for $6.2 million.
The developer told the Woburn Board of Appeals that the total amount of rock removed for the entire Route 3 widening was about 500,000 cubic yards...over twenty miles miles and nowhere near any houses, children or schools.
We all stand in support of affordable housing for the City of Woburn, but the significant risks of this project far outweigh the need for affordable housing at this site.
Current Mayor Scott Galvin, Former Mayor Tom McLaughlin Alderman Raymond, Gately and DiTucci and State Representatives JIm Dwyer and Jim Miceli all have expressed their opposition or concerns about this massive quarry project.
Please sign our petition so that we can show the elected officials and the developer that we are united in our fight to choose greed over the right thing to do.
This is our Facebook site where you can find all of the facts about this project.
