Dear Friends, Neighbors and WACCOBB,
Dutra Construction is trying to create an asphalt recycling center directly on the Sonoma County line (S. Petaluma Boulevard) and MUST BE STOPPED.
I am concerned by the decision of the Sonoma County planning commission to approve the placement of the Dutra asphalt plant in Petaluma and would like help in spreading this message.
The article in the Argus Courier states: The environmental impact report on the project stated the expected impacts of the project on air quality, noise and scenery would be ďsignificant and unavoidable.Ē

I am certainly not against growing the manufacturing capacity of the city or county but the fact that this development will sit directly next to a wildlife preserve, as well as a few blocks from my home, seems like a proposition that wasnít well thought out.
The plant will be conveniently located so as to not only jeopardize the wild life preserves the city has invested millions in, but also foul the air of the South McDowell business park, the theater district and the thousands of homes in a few mile radius. To me this is not only a environmental issue but an issue that will negatively impact the quality of life of the majority of Petaluman's.
The board of supervisors will be holding a public meeting on Feb 3 at 575 Administration drive in Santa Rosa.
