We, the undersigned, do hereby petition the Village Board of Plainfield, Illinois, to disapprove the construction of the proposed GP Transco Truck-Freight Terminal at 22419 W Renwick Rd in Plainfield, IL. and to disapprove the application by GP Transco for a special use permit for that purpose, and the annexation and rezoning for that purpose, of 22537 W Renwick Rd. in Plainfield, IL.
We acknowledge that Renwick Rd. is an already very dangerous and congested road, and that the added amount of semi-truck traffic, and added other vehicle traffic in that area under this proposal, would greatly increase the danger of the road, add to the present gridlock of traffic that happens in that area many times throughout the day, and further inhibit the quick passage of emergency vehicles.
We also acknowledge the imminent harm it would cause the thousands of motorists who use Renwick Rd. in order to commute to the Village of Plainfield or elsewhere; who visit the forest preserves in the immediate area; and who patronize the various businesses in the Village and surrounding areas.
We are also concerned with the environmental harm it could cause the wetlands and creeks in the area, the air quality, and the nearby forest preserves.
