O’side group opposes new asphalt plant

OCEANSIDE — Contractor George Weir, owner of Escondido Asphalt in Escondido, has been looking for a location to open a second asphalt plant for five years. The search led him to an agreeable location at 2609 Industry Street in Oceanside that is zoned for heavy industry and not directly adjacent to a waterway.
