Survey Results: Proposed asphalt plant on Maple Valley Highway

Thank you for your interest in the survey, and to all those who participated!

I want to share with you the comments I’ve received from the survey I sent out to approximately 20,000 registered voters in the 11th Legislative District regarding the proposed Lakeside Industries asphalt plant near the Cedar River in Unincorporated Maple Valley. After a little more than one week, there was a substantial response to this survey, with 250 respondents!

From the responses I’ve received, people are very concerned about the proposed asphalt plant. In short, most respondents do not want the asphalt plant at all. Respondents believe serious mitigation of the adverse effects of the plant would be needed if Lakeside is ultimately allowed to occupy this site. This includes the days and hours of plant operation, the number of trucks allowed per day, and the ban of production of reclaimed asphalt pavement.

Additional details on the survey responses.

Thank you,
Rep. Steve Bergquist
