Dozens of residents expressed their worries of foul smells, decreasing home values and environmental problems if a proposed goat and sheep slaughterhouse opens near an elementary school in Pearland.
A resident shared the following via Facebook:
“ATTENTION PEARLAND RESIDENTS!…
A public hearing will be held Nov 19 at 6:30 pm regarding the application for permit to construct and operate an ANIMAL SLAUGHTER HOUSE at 1526 Garden Rd.This address is inside Pearland city limits, not Brookside Village. I don’t know if they have a voice in City of Pearland Planning & Zoning, but all of the Brookside residents I have talked with don’t want it in or near their community either. In addition, this animal slaughter house, if approved, will be operating less than 750 feet from Lawhon Elementary School, a campus full of small children. I urge you to go to www.pearlandtx.gov/public-hearings and sign up to speak out against approval of this permit at the public hearing on Nov 19 in Council Chamber at City Hall, 3519 Liberty Dr, at 6:30 pm. If you cannot go in person to speak, you may submit a public comment form at the same web address given above. Public comment forms must be submitted by 12:00 pm on the date of the hearing. I also urge you to contact your Pearland City Council representatives to express your opposition to the construction and operation of an animal slaughter house in our city. In all communications, please reference the permit application number of CUP18-00022. PLEASE SHARE THIS POST.”
