Let's hope money doesn't go against everyone in the Temecula Valley changes any ones mind. The noise and dirt and wear and tear on the roads and Hwys will look just like the area around Magnolia of the 15 and we will have numerous windshields broken. I have had mine broken twice and the trucks don't have enough information on the side for you to find them. Don't put that dirty project in the beautiful Temecula Valley; for once listen to the people!

The Planning Commission also rejected the proposed GCI aggregate quarry near Temecula for its flawed Environmental Impact Report. Denial of the waiver of the noise ordinance and of the mining permit present GCI with additional difficulty. Further, knowing its final decision will almost certainly face a legal challenge, the Planning Commission has given itself extra time to express its findings in careful language. A court hearing a legal challenge to the proposed project denial may look at only these findings. As a result, GCI will have to talk about factual matters and evident shortcomings in its EIR and related studies. The popular mantra about jobs and tax revenue and suchlike will carry little if any weight in this legal process. Nobody may predict the outcome in this matter. Meanwhile, a reasonable person can see GCI has dug itself another kind of hole.

Terrific news for the folks living in the area! It's nice to know that somewhere there are representatives of the people who actually represent the people.

like everything else in life, if it is deemed to be bad for you politicians will outlaw it.......unless it can be taxed. they wanted to ban smoking until they found out they could tax it to death (which by they way they can't. people will always want to smoke). the money raised could be used for more state legislative spending. then there is the desire for this state to legalize dope (singular. dopes are already legal in california) so that more taxes can be sucked up by the legislature. now the Californian reports that the state discovered they could tax profits from mining operations and all the money raised could go to schools. so all you teachers out there who were worried about dying of dust inhalation, or that noise from blasting would drown out your lectures to kids who can't even spell the word, or a broken car windshield, can now sleep better knowing your pension will be sound. Hey, where'd all the protestors go!

Number one I don't appreciate seeing the obama ads on this page. He is using our tax dollars to promote his sickening campaign. He is an illegal muslim that has commited crimes against humanity and should not be in OUR White House. Regarding the Quarry, if the "honest" has any integrity and will use it, we should win over this community destroying corrupt venture.
