Liberty Quarry Might Invite Lawsuits

I urgently want to warn all the real estate agents out there operating in the valley that this Liberty Quarry issue is national news and that they cannot play the role of the "three monkeys."

I urgently want to warn all the real estate agents out there operating in the valley that this issue is national news and that they cannot play the role of the "three monkeys" and pretend that this may not happen, and therefore not feel entitled to inform their potential clients wanting to buy in the valley.

The majority of all law suits in real estate are because of under disclosure of material facts and, believe me, this will be a pretty darn important material fact not to disclose.

I am saddened by the fact that some real estate colleagues in this valley monstrosity and my heart goes to them.

Our legacy to the town where we came to raise our family must be passed on by doing the right thing. Many buyers are still on the side line because of this unresolved issue.

Say no to Liberty Quarry in our valley.

Aggregate Mining should not be located in residential areas, this video drives home the point. All realtors should be required by law to show videos with sound of an aggregate mining operation located nearby homes they are selling.

Please note the Riverside County Planning Commission has already denied a waiver of the noise ordinance for the proposed aggregate quarry near Temecula. The RCPC, to its credit, carefully and thoughtfully reviewed this proposed project, and then denied it the green light. As part of its review, the RCPC listed a series of rational objections. Additionally, Commissioner Roth, Chair of the RCPC, noted that all the authorities in Temecula Valley opposed the proposed quarry. The RCPC still has to ratify its initial denial of the proposed quarry near Temecula.

say yes! more Jobs!

The quarries are highly regulated by the government and kept to high standards of safety. We need to generate more jobs. These companies pay well and stimulate the economy.

HIGHLY REGULATED WHAT LOL... CLICK ON LINK TO PATCH ARTICLE REGARDING WATER POLLUTION IN ALBERHILL RANCH http://lakeelsinore-wildomar.patch.com/articles/pacific-clay-slapped-for-polluting-local-waterways Pacific Clay, a mining operation, owns approximately 1,400 acres in the city. The company, which mines clay and aggregates, also has a brick manufacturing plant at its Lake Elsinore site. Despite repeated warnings and violations spanning decades, as recently as Dec. 24, 2010, a site inspection by Santa Ana Regional Water Quality Control Board staff found that, as a result of Pacific Clay’s mining activities, the company has continued to allow sediment-laden water to flow directly into local water systems, according to the complaint. Pacific Clay has responded to the July complaint in an August 19 letter to the Board. Subsequently, both the California Regional Water Quality Control Board and Pacific Clay have agreed that the company will be hit with the $40,000 fine. Under the agreement, Pacific Clay has also waived its right to a hearing. But the matter isn't over. Through October 24, the public is invited to comment on the complaint. If significant comments are made, a public hearing will be called and a notice will be posted. Comments on the complaint should be submitted in writing to Michael Roth, Santa Ana Regional Water Quality Control Board, 3737 Main Street, Suite 500, Riverside, CA 92501. His email is mroth@waterboards.ca.gov.

The economic argument (more tax revenue, more jobs) supporting a proposed project like the GCI quarry aims to paste dollar bills over the eyes of the public, blinding it to other legitimate concerns. But the analysis by the Riverside County Planning Commission found a host of negative impacts and misleading information in connection with the proposed GCI quarry: more noise, air pollution, increased truck traffic, suspect jobs claim, reduction of local revenue, poor studies, impacts to ground water affecting plant life, and so on. Again, the RCPC took note of the unity of the Temecula Valley community against this proposed GCI quarry near Temecula. Let us hope GCI gets the message, and goes away, soon.

STIFF REGULATIONS LOL - be sure to read the following article and write letters via email if you are against water pollution. http://lakeelsinore-wildomar.patch.com/articles/pacific-clay-slapped-for-polluting-local-waterways

Jax, I appreciate your short comment although you cannot jeopardize the life of thousands to create 45 on site jobs (for which many of it will most likely be relocation of employees already in force with Granite). Please have an open mind and really dig deeper into the reality of it.
Massimo Spadazzi October 14, 2011 at 07:48 PM
Deal Jax, They also pay hefty fines too because of their unregulated way of business conduction within. 45 jobs will certainly not stimulate our economy...4,500.00 will not do either!
Massimo Spadazzi October 14, 2011 at 07:50 PM
See what Mathilda is saying... http://lakeelsinore-wildomar.patch.com/articles/pacific-clay-slapped-for-polluting-local-waterways
Massimo Spadazzi October 14, 2011 at 07:52 PM
Thank you Mathilda! Man I need help with Jax!

Granite has already violated the California state "Full Disclosure" laws by filing and defending an incomplete, incompatible report beneficial to it's own ends and means. There is no acceptable information related to the underground water table, air pollution, additional noise abatement in the freeway corridor or surface roads, to name a few, and certainly an absence, incomplete, and incompatible Demographic study of the indigenous and local property owners, and businesses.
