Petition Closed

Spring Hill, Tennessee, residents have spent more than a year expressing their concerns about mercury emissions that will be caused by Spring Hill Memorial's proposed crematorium. The proposed crematorium lies on Main Street in the heart of the city's small downtown area. It is within a short distance of homes, schools, and parks. Spring Hill is a young city with its largest number of citizens young families with young children and those just beginning their families. Pages and pages of evidence were presented about the noted effect the mercury vapors can have on unborn infants and young children. This issue was put before the Planning Commission and the Board of Mayor and Aldermen. The city's elected officials voted to not allow the crematorium in the location at the Funeral Home. Unfortunately it was brought forth again before the Planning Commission, which is not an elected body, and it was approved. The citizens have a right to request a town hall meeting to express their concerns to the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation. This petition is asking for that town hall meeting. If are signing this petition and live in Spring Hill, Columbia, or Thompson's Station, Tennessee, please include your zip code. We appreciate your support.
