Asphalt plants in Durham are required to be 1,500 feet from where people live. However, a plan to build ten new plants and reduce the distance to homes to 600 feet almost got to the city council for a vote before citizens found out about it. The plants would also be built in Durham's poorer, inner city communities. Strom discusses how behind-the-scenes lobbying puts citizens at a disadvantage in cases like this and how citizens are reacting to the plan.
