POTENTIAL IMPACTS ON PHYSICAL ENVIRONMENT 



5. Aesthetics 

The State Motor Vehicle Recycling and Disposal law and rule requires 
that all motor vehicle wrecking facilities be shielded from public view. 

This proposed site is a three acre parcel of land near Callahan Creek 
approximately 100 yards from a county road. The site is presently screened 
from view by natural vegetation in the form of evergreen trees and deciduous 
shrubs. The density of this vegetation is such that it will provide adequate 
shielding of the site throughout the year. If any of the screening vegeta- 
tion is removed for expansion of the facility, some form of artificial 
screening must be constructed in its place. A license to operate cannot 
be issued to wrecking facilities which are not screened from public view. 

POTENTIAL IMPACTS ON HUMAN ENVIRONMENT 



General Comments 

The successful operation of a motor vehicle salvage operation should 
offer employment and personal income to the applicant/operator and any 
additional employees necessary for the business. Secondary trades such as 
shipping and transportation, construction, advertising, equipment service 
and repair may also be influenced in a positive manner depending on the 
final scale of operation of this facility. 

Motor vehicle wrecking facilities are generally considered heavy 
commercial or light industrial land uses. Such use of this property is 
not prohibited by locally adopted land use zoning ordinances. This area 
of Lincoln County is not presently zoned. The site selected for this 
facility is in a rural area outside the corporate limits of the Town of 
Troy. 



Motor vehicle wrecking facilities require periodic inspections by 
state and local junk vehicle program officials to assure that they are being 
maintained in compliance with the Motor Vehicle Recycling and Disposal law 
and rule. This demand for governmental services is minimal for properly 
operated facilities. Those which chronically violate the screening re- 
quirements of the law can take a considerable amount of administrative 
or judicial time for license revocation actions or legal actions for the 
imposition of penalties. A minor amount of administrative time and effort 
is required in establishing office files for wrecking facilities and in 
routine mailings o f correspondence.
