Shollenberger Park and the Petaluma Wetlands need your support now more than ever.
We ask you to help save Shollenberger Park by including us in your annual giving plans.As you know, litigation to save the park from the Dutra Asphalt factory hazards began in January 2011. On December 9th, Judge Chouteau will hear oral arguments in Sonoma Superior Court, Santa Rosa. You, the public, can attend. We plan to be victorious, but understand that Dutra will most likely file an appeal, and the litigation may continue throughout 2012.
Dutra hopes they can outspend and outlast us. But we won’t let them win and degrade our park, health, economy and community. Not after five years of community resistance.
Our attorneys have worked very efficiently, yet the legal process is expensive. We need your financial help now to fund our legal challenge.
Without funds to continue the fight, the Dutra six-story asphalt towers will become the gateway to our community in 2012. Your donation is crucial to the legal defense of our wetlands and to keep our community informed.
Our community has been generous in the past. Let's see this through. We look forward to celebrating our victory together.
Your donation is fully tax deductible under our sponsorship by O.W.L. Foundation, a 501c3 non-profit. And, if you have any questions, please feel free to call us at 415-516-3673.
Thank you for your past support and for helping us secure Shollenberger Park.
Joan Cooper, David Keller & Greg Reisinger
