Jon Lorusso started this petition to Orange County Board of County Commissioners - Chair Penny Rich and

The Orange County Board of County Commissioners is preparing to vote on several issues this September 1st and 15th. A proposed development, Research Triangle Logistics Park (RTLP), plans to construct a 161-acre warehouse complex on the intersection of I40, Old NC86 and Davis Road. The impact to neighborhoods up and down the traffic corridor of Churton Street as well as other traffic tributaries like Orange Grove Road, Arthur Minnis Road and New Hope Church Road is being ignored for the sake of economic development. This industrial complex impacts the community by:

  • Increasing air, water and noise pollution in the region
  • Creating a dangerous traffic impact for all residents between Carrboro and the I-85 accesses in Hillsborough
  • Dramatically increasing the volume of diesel tractor-trailer rigs on our narrow, two-lane country roads
  • Threatening water quality and quantity in the Eno River and New Hope Watershed

The need to respond now is urgent. If approved by the board, an out-of-state developer with a history of negatively impacting communities where it has operated in the past will be making a fast buck while we live with the consequences.
