GOSHEN — Goshen Board of Works members expressed some reluctance before siding with the city code in denying a parking lot variance for Keystone RV.

The board voted to deny a request from the RV maker to pave a new employee parking area with recycled asphalt material. The company was seeking a variance from city requirements that employee parking must be paved with a hard, durable surface such as new asphalt.

I am CERTAINLY not an engineer, but I did a bit of research on recycling of asphalt. According to the Minnesota Paving Assoc. recycled pavement is a plus retaining 95% of it's previous durability. Something about adding a small amount of binder makes it just as durable as new asphalt. Certainly used as a parking lot paver, the recycled product would not receive as much use as road material! Just sayin!
