Response to Dutra's new Shamrock proposal

Following is our response sent to the Supervisors and PRMD regarding the latest proposal from Dutra to revise their Asphalt Plant project, including their intention to use the Shamrock Landing Way facility for unloading aggregates. This letter describes a series of substantial and significant problems, issues and actions that must be addressed by the County before any further consideration of Dutra's proposal can continue. The entire file submission is about 500 pages total. Part 1 - Letter (pdf) Part 2- Letter & Exhibits A-H (very large pdf) Part 3 - Exhibits I-J (very large pdf) Part 4 - Exhibits K-P (very large pdf)

Next Week's Vote Likely Postponed Again

Dutra is once again asking the County to delay a decision on their proposed asphalt plant. They have asked for a continuance to May 11th and we are hearing it's very likely the Board will grant their request. Stay tuned!
