Latest News on SE Asphalt’s proposed hot mix asphalt plant:

Follow our updates here and join our Facebook group to get the latest news on the conditional rezoning application #R-2020-03-C submitted on behalf of SE Asphalt – Jeff Shipman on May 1,2020, which requests Henderson County conditionally rezone a 6.5 acre portion of land, currently owned by Dustin Gosnell of DGP HOLDINGS LLC and Nathan and Kelly Byrd of NKMR VENTURES LLC, to a conditional district to construct a new asphalt drum plant located off Spartanburg Hwy (US 176) in East Flat Rock, North Carolina.

The proposed site of this asphalt drum plant is on the northeast corner of Highway 176 and US Highway 25 (Exit 7 on Highway 25), within one mile of hundreds of single family homes, small farms, the Green River Game Lands, and the Eastern Continental Divide. The headwaters of Laurel Creek, which feeds into the Green River gorge, is less than 300 feet from the proposed site.

The property is currently zoned Community Commercial, which allows for residential and commercial uses, such as office buildings and retail sales and services. Asphalt plants are not currently permitted and special conditional rezoning must be obtained in order to build a heavy industrial plant in such close proximity to neighborhood homes, schools, and churches.
