Hello Green Air Solutions Community,


We're back with some important updates on our ongoing battle against the proposed concrete batch plant #STOPJ7. Your support and engagement have been invaluable in our recent successes, and we want to keep you informed every step of the way.


Silent Auction Success

First things first, we have to give a massive shout-out to everyone who contributed to our silent auction. Your generosity helped us raise nearly $4,000, reinforcing our community's commitment to this cause. A very special thanks to the hardworking volunteers who stepped up to make the auction a success. We do have plans for the unsold items so stay tuned!


TCEQ Public Meeting Recap (December 11)

The TCEQ Public Meeting was a powerful tribute to our community's unity and determination. Over 300 people showed up to show their support, with more than 40 individuals who asked some thought-provoking questions and over 50 who bravely shared their public comments (verbal and written). It's very heartwarming, and we just wanted to shout out a big thank you to everyone who stood up and fought for the well-being of our community. You guys are the real heroes!
