Some people think that if large factories are built near their community, they will bring a financial benefit to that community. Without a doubt, some regions receive some benefits from plants which are built near the area. However, I think that building the new plant near my community is controversial problem and disagree with the idea to build factories near my town. I feel this way for two reasons, which I will explain in the following essay.
To begin with, the number of people who live in my town will increase due to the increasing number of people who will work in the new factory. This increase number of population will cause more criminals in my town. Some researchers mention that a criminal rate in the city is basically higher than that in the country side. I personally experienced this cocept. When I lived in a country side 2years ago, I have never faced a criminal happening around me. In contrast, after having moved to Tokyo, I have been through the criminal happening two times around me. This example demonstrates that the criminal rate in Tokyo is higher than that in my home town. If the plant built near my community, the number of criminals would increase. I want to avoid facing dangerous situations as much as I can.
Secondly, the factory releases the chemical smog and has adverse effects on the environment around my city. Even if the company tries to manage emissions of harmful gases, some gases are released to the air and this air pollution causes a health problem to people who live near the factory. Moreover, people living near that area would suffer from noises made by plants. My own experience illustrates this case. When I was a student, the university started the renovation of the campus. The project was done thorough the day for 2 month. During that period, I could not concentrate on my study because of a terrible noise. Furthermore, many people suffered from diseases which were caused by the air pollution. This example demonstrates that construction caused serious problems such as environmental issue. Without that renovation, I would be able to spend more comfortable school life during that period.
In conclusion, I strongly disagree with the project to build new factory around my living area. This is because the criminal rates will increase by the increasing number of people who stay around my house, and because the construction of factory has adverse effects on the environment around town I am living.
