BUTLER TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WDTN)– Township trustees pull a petition to build a cul-de-sac where residents are concerned about traffic near the new Proctor and & Gamble Distribution Center.
Township Trustee President, Mike Lang, said the road set for construction of the cul-de-sac was moved, and is now technically in the city of Union– making the petition technically incorrect.
Montgomery County Commissioners planned to have a public hearing on the petition Tuesday.
Neighbors have had issues with the P&G facility, from the start of construction, which they say was noisy and around the clock.
“So at three in the morning we could hear, they were scraping on the limestone and we could hear it. And we said hey, can you stop working? The answer was pretty much, no,” said Carlos Colon, a Butler Township resident for 20 years.
Lang said the trustees would be looking at their options, then possibly re-filing the petition.
Residents like Colon, weren’t optimistic.
“Do I hope that it happens? Yes I do. I would like it to happen. But do I think that they’re going to have any regard for us? No. They’re just going to go for development, they’re going to go for business, tax revenues. They’re not going to care about the resident’s property values. Safety of the residents. They’re not going to care about that.”
