NO Asphalt Factory Next To Our Park!
"Stay The Course"
"It Takes A Community" to protect itself. Judge Chouteau's flawed decision needs to be challenged in a higher court. That's why our justice system has an appellate court.
Preserving wetlands for the good of the planet and all of us living beings leads to a healthy future.
Allowing an industrial factory on the banks of the river is going backwards to the bad old times.
Petaluma doesn't want this factory at its Gateway, but Dutra does. Who wins, who loses? It goes against the 2020 County General Plan guiding principle: The County should cooperate with cities when planning for parcels in their sphere of influence, just outside the city limits.
KNOWN IMPACTS OF THE DUTRA ASPHALT FACTORY:
Judge Chouteau's legal ruling doesn't change the DUTRA Asphalt factory. It's still the same noxious factory.
A FUTURE DUTRA FACTORY:
Still Smells like hot asphalt
Still Unhealthy and Toxic Operation
Excessive NOX levels that lead to asthma allowed
2.5 particulate matter causes asthma & cancer - not evaluated
Still Creates traffic jams for commuters using 101
Still Impacts Shollenberger's wildlife
egrets and herons
Still impacts nearby residences and businesses:
noise, dust, smells, and lights
Still lowers housing values
Still an Eyesore at the Gateway to Petaluma:
Still Hurts local restaurant, shopping and tourism businesses
WHY WE CAN WIN AN APPEAL AT A HIGHER COURT:
Legal errors in Judge Chouteau's ruling make it possible to overturn it on appeal for reconsideration by a panel of three judges in a San Francisco higher court. Getting the case out of Sonoma County may help our case.

Are you with us?
