We agree with the Missouri Botanical Garden, which operates the Shaw Nature Reserve at Gray Summit, that the proposed location of a ready mix concrete near the nature reserve should not be allowed. The matter is before the Franklin County Planning and Zoning Commission.

While that type of business is necessary and certainly legitimate, the operation is such that it doesn’t belong next to a nature reserve. The operations produce noise and dust, plus there would be truck traffic to deal with by visitors to the nature reserve, numbering about 60,000 a year.
