A letter to Bill Horn
Last updated 3/15/2007 at Noon
Dear Mr. Horn,
I recently read a reply from your office to a letter of concern about the proposed quarry just over the San Diego County line in Riverside.
You directed the gentleman to the Riverside Supervisors, telling him that you “did not know what role San Diego would play in this issue.”
As a resident of Rainbow and living one mile from the site, perhaps I can explain how this county will be affected.
May I respectfully remind you that the 1,600 truck trips made from this quarry would exit and enter at Rainbow Valley Boulevard – one every 55 seconds at peak times? It would be San Diego County residents who deal with this constant onslaught of traffic. It would be San Diego County residents who are assaulted by the diesel fumes, odors from asphalt plants, cracked windshields. It would be San Diego County residents experiencing the effects of dangerous silica dust that the unpredictable winds through the Rainbow gap bring into our living spaces. It would be San Diego County residents living with property values dropping.
This is an issue of the welfare of human beings… not just a quarry site. You may not have a vote in this, but you could have a “say.”
We who oppose this quarry at this location are growing by the thousands. We could be your future.
