Smell, excessive noise, and truck traffic will likely become factors.

It is a known fact that neighborhoods located in a proximity to rail roads, airports, express ways, landfills, industrial areas, etc. do not fair well when it comes to maintainiting their value. This happens largely because these occurances have a serious impact on the quality of life in these locations.

If the asphalt plant is isolated and far enough from the residential areas it may have little effect. On the other hand, if it's sight, sound, or smell are impacted residents may likely have reason for concern.

Best wishes,

Here are several links to school rating websites that should help you out. The first is Great Schools and the link will take you right to the Petaluma Schools section.

Here are some additional ones as well, unfortunately the Sonoma County Office Of Education Link is down this morning but it is correct so hopefully it will be up and running soon.

California Department of Education

School Wise Press

Great Schools

Sonoma County Office of Education

I hope these links help you out. If you have trouble with any of them they are hyperlinked@n my Website on the Links page under Education.
