RENO, Nev. (AP) — A group of homeowners in a Reno neighborhood is fighting a proposed rock crushing and compost recycling facility that would be located about 80 feet behind some backyards.

Residents in the University Ridge community overlooking the University of Nevada, Reno campus are appealing the Reno Planning Commission's decision to grant C4 Equity LLC several variances to launch the business.

The Reno City Council will consider the project Wednesday evening.

Residents say the plans are not compatible with the neighborhood because of the noise, traffic and dust that would be caused by semi-trucks and a concrete crushing machine.

Calls to C4 Equity were not returned.

The company wants to store concrete, asphalt and compost materials on the property, and to recycle the concrete and asphalt by using a mobile crushing unit.

There MUST be a better location for an operation like this than nestled into a residential area. This would cause a lot of problems for the home owners,and the LLC should find a more "industrial" location.
