Public hearings have been scheduled for April 13 by the state Department of Environmental Conservation on the controversial plan for a Blasdell solid waste transfer station.
The DEC set the hearings after receiving close to 200 letters about the project, the majority of them from people opposed to it.
Hearings are scheduled at 2 p.m. and again at 7 p.m. April 13 at the Newton-Abbott Fire Department hall, 3426 Abbott Road, Blasdell.
The hearings will concern whether Blasdell Development Group should be granted a permit to construct a 14,000-square-foot building and operate a 1,000-ton per day transfer station on the east side of Jeffrey Boulevard.
The project has the support of the Blasdell Village Board, which determined it would not pose significant environmental problems. But it faces significant opposition from the Hamburg Town Board and a number of residents.
