ROCKY MOUNTAIN RESOURCES, AN L.A. BASED MINING INVESTMENT COMPANY, HAS PROPOSED A SIGNIFICANT EXPANSION TO THE LIMESTONE STRIP MINE UP TRANSFER TRAIL.
THIS MAY RESULT IN:
1-POLLUTANTS: The expanded mining operation may increase Water, Air, Carbon, Noise & Light Pollutants throughout the community and impact our local tourism economy.
2-SCARRING TO OUR MOUNTAIN: Expansion of the Transfer Trial Mine will cause permanent and irreversible damage which will be HIGHLY visible from around Glenwood Springs.
3-TRAFFIC & INFRASTRUCTURE BURDEN: There will be an increase in trucking and traffic load on local infrastructure
in both residential and several highly utilized tourism areas.
4-DECREASED ACCESS TO PUBLIC LAND: Access to public land will be impacted. The mining haul route is on Glenwood’s only vehicular and ATV access to the Flat Tops. With the increased truck traffic and a modified snowmobile access point, getting to our public lands will become more difficult.
COMMUNITY MEMBERS AND ADMIRERS: TAKE ACTION!
