Transylvania County Board of Commissioners: Place a Moratorium on the proposed Penrose Biomass facility.

We, the undersigned Transylvania County residents, respectfully request the Transylvania County Board of Commissioners to enact a Moratorium on the development of the Penrose Biomass project proposal for a period of 18 months for the purpose of allowing all parties to conduct their due diligence in this matter. Considering the discussions of this Biomass proposal have been underway for nearly two years, we feel 18 months is a fair reflection of the time needed for a Moratorium to allow the public and the County Commission to fully evaluate the necessary impacts of this project.
