Solano Group has been an ardent opponent of the proposed "green" cement plant slated for South Vallejo. Citing problems with air and noise pollution on top of being proposed in a residential neighborhood close to an elementary school, a park and many homes, Group leaders are helping to build a case outlining why this is a very bad idea.

So far, the Vallejo City Council has supported the project, while many in the community, the Planning Commission and City staff have opposed it. Sierra Club continues to sound the alarm, calling the project the worst kind of environmental injustice and the absolute wrong project for this time and place.
