Impact of Distribution Centers on our Community
We have researched the effects of distribution centers on communities like our own. Relevant news articles and government documents are not hard to find. Included here are excerpts and links to several excellent articles that explain unexpected economic repercussions, including effects on roadways and other infrastructure, along with how the job market is affected. Other articles describe increased traffic, air pollution, noise pollution, and serious health effects from distribution centers developed too close to residential areas. You will quickly see that the detrimental impact to our community far outweighs any positive economic benefit for Morgan Hill's future.
