Dear fellow friends of Shollenberger Park,

We want to sincerely thank you for your support and your assistance in this campaign to save one of the most unique environmental treasures in California. The response to this cause has been phenomenal and we are confident that with several more days of tireless awareness-raising and constant communication to the County Supervisors we can convince this board that Dutra's proposed Asphalt plant at Haystack Landing is the Wrong Plant and the Wrong Place! We would like to invite each of you to a shindig we are hosting this Saturday from 4-6pm at our campaign headquarters in Petaluma. We have had so many volunteers contribute their time, energy and money to this cause and this gathering is a celebration of all your efforts. Please see full details for the event below. We are in the final hour and your help is vital to the success of this effort. Please pass this email on to everyone you can. Let's build a sustainable community together.

Petaluma council opposes asphalt plant proposal By PAUL PAYNE THE PRESS DEMOCRAT Published: Tuesday, January 27, 2009 at 2:23 p.m. http://www.pressdemocrat.com/article/20090127/ARTICLES/901270262/1350?Title=Petaluma_council_opposes_asphalt_plant_proposal

Come to the City Council Meeting Tomorrow Night

The City Council will be discussing the question of sending a letter to the Board of Supervisors regarding the current Dutra proposal. (Because the park is outside of city limits, the decision to move forward with the current proposal is up to the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors.) Please join the Friends of Shollenberger at this meeting! Come and let them know how you feel about this proposal. Ideally, your comments should be passionate, yet clear, with personal stories about use of the park, business location, impacts to health, etc. Surely, the County can and must do better than this proposal, or it should be rejected."Fix it; prevent navigational hazards; or reject it!" Please arrive at 8:30 PM. The agenda is full, and this is an estimated time that the Dutra asphalt project will be discussed. Complete meeting agenda can be found at: http://petaluma.granicus.com/AgendaViewer.php?view_id=3&event_id=28 Please spread the word! This is an open meeting and everyone's
