To our Visitors and Tourists from Near and Far:Dutra Materials wants to build an asphalt plant on the banks of the Petaluma River and 350 ft. from the walking paths of Shollenberger Park. The Petaluma City Council and our Mayor are unanimously opposed to this project!
Additionally, a recent poll showed 84.5% of the citizen respondents are also opposed. Yet three of the five County Supervisors are inclined to vote to permit this factory to be located in this Voter Mandated Scenic View Corridor. You can help protect this scenic wildlife preserve and wetlands by sending them your letter, stating how you value wetlands and scenic beauty and that this translates into longterm economic vitality for Sonoma County. (See template below).
Contact the Supervisors and Tell Them to Vote NO! The final vote is January 12th!!
Here is a standard letter script you can use if you'd like. We encourage you to expand it and make it personal.
I am often a visitor to beautiful natural destinations and Sonoma County is one of them. I'm writing to ask you to preserve and protect Sonoma County's wetlands by voting NO on the Dutra Asphalt Plant proposal at Haystack Landing. I plan to visit Sonoma County because of its natural beauty and commitment to a healthy environment. Please vote NO on the Dutra Asphalt Plant and you can be sure many tourists will thank you and will visit Shollenberger Park and Sonoma County.
