New factories always can bring many good things to a community, such as more jobs and increased prosperity. However, in my opinion, the benefits of having a new factory are outweighed by the dangers of having it. So I oppose the plan to build a large factory near my community.
The main reason for my view is that the new factory will hurt my community. Since the factory will bring large smog and pollution, the large factory will doubtless destroy the quality of the air, the soil and the water of my community. In the long run, it will hurt the environment of my community. At last it will affect the people`s health. The benefit of having a factory is not worth of that risk.
Another reason for my view is that building a large factory near my community will change my community too much. My community is a safe, peaceful and beautiful town. Building a large factory means that a number of people will come to here working and living. So, that lead to many houses will be built and the road will be broadened and elongated. The town will become more prosperity, but meantime, my community will become more noise and even litter unsafe. I have been used to quiet life. I do not want to change it. But the large factory really will change my life too much.
So, based on all these reasons and examples, I oppose building a large factory near my community, I also hope others feel the same way and oppose this plan.
