A committee which was formed to try and prevent a proposed rock quarry at the intersection of Bradyville Road and John Bragg Highway has begun circulating a petition to garner support for their effort.

Heading the committee are Darren Whaley, who can be reached at misty_whaley@yahoo.com and
(615) 563-1459, and Bonnie Thomas, blpgt415@gmail.com and (615) 563-4128.

The petition reads:

"We the undersigned citizens of Cannon County, TN ask that state and local approval for the proposed Rock Quarry to be located at 962 Bradyville Road Woodbury, TN be DENIED AND THE PROJECT STOPPED.  

"The negative impact on property values, potential structural damage, increased highway deterioration, reduced safety for area children (there is an elementary school within .8 tenths of a mile from the site), dramatic increase in heavy truck traffic at an already hazardous intersection, and deterioration in the quality of life for residents (a thriving residential community is .2 tenths of a mile from the proposed location) will be significant.

"If you believe as we do that locating another landscape scarring rock quarry on John Bragg Highway will be damaging to our community, please sign the petition ..."    

Copies of the petition are currently available to be signed at the office of Cannon County Executive Mike Gannon and at Russell's Market on Murfreesboro Road.

Copies of signed petitions will be distributed to the following persons:
