Mr Tavaglione we have family too and it's not fair to put a Quarry so close to this neighborhood. Temecula is growing in a positive direction but it will not be the same if this quarry passes. Please vote this project down or at least let the people vote on it. A new hospital would bring more jobs. A College would bring more jobs. There are many more projects that would bring more jobs. 300 specialized jobs is not the answer. The needs of the few do not outweigh the way of life of the many South Riverside residents who are relying on you to vote this project down.

I agree with Sonny..other projects that would bring more jobs..I hate this tactic of the Quarry people plugging signs everywhere that they will bring jobs to our community. Our health is more important.

A message to the Board of Supervisors from a deployed servicemember: Please consider the residents on whom this quarry would impact. No one would like a quarry in their own backyard. Do not give into special interests/lobbyists. People move to the Temecula area for the quality of life. If you impact the quality of life you will affect future business generation and residential migration resulting in LESS TAX REVENUE. Please make the right decision and vote against the quarry.

Even a Water Park/Theme Park would bring more jobs. It would employ not only adults but our children who have no summer jobs and for those who could not afford college in these difficult times. Disneyland is open all year round 7 days a week. Hotels would make money, Restaurants would make money, The Mall would make more money. I would even rent my house for a summer week....evreybody wins.

I own a home in Temecula, and IF they approve this garbage quarry, I will STOP PAYING MY PROPERTY TAXES!!!!!!!!

This quarry won't bring any jobs. It will drive other quarries out of business by being closer to San Diego where it's going and where will those jobs go? Bring in high tech industries like software development. We have a lot of highly skilled developers trucking it to San Diego, Irvine, and LA that would love to code closer to home.

Mr. Tavaglione, let the people vote on this issue, period. This ahs been going on for sometime now becuase this issue has been met with lots of oppsition. Let the people vote, do the work of the people, not the big money businesses that support campaing issues.
