Go to This Meeting

Posted By on Fri, Nov 30, 2007 at 12:46 PM

Save the Scenic Santa Ritas needs you to step away from the blog for an afternoon, or at least take an extended lunch, on Dec. 5.

According to SSSR, the Arizona Corporation Commission will take public comments at a meeting on Wednesday, Dec. 5, at 1 p.m., on the Green Valley CAP pipeline proposal from Augusta Resource, the company that wants to develop a copper mine--yet another source of mine-tailings piles. How lovely.

The spot Augusta Resource plans to mine can be seen from DESIGNATED SCENIC HIGHWAY State Highway 83, and from I-10 to Sonoita.

Augusta Resource submitted their Mine Plan of Operations to the Forest Service on July 11, 2007. On Oct. 19, the Forest Service requested more information from Augusta Resource. It remains up to the Forest Service to make the right decision.

The Community Water Company is supporting the proposal. A recent article from the Green Valley News states the Dec. 5 meeting is a presentation only, although it should also offer a glimpse into how this project plays out locally in Green Valley and in Pima County politics.

The meeting takes place at the American Legion Hall, 1560 W. Duval Mine Road in Green Valley. For more info, call Save the Scenic Santa Ritas as (520) 495-4339.
