Residents must fight gravel plan

Vedder Mountain/gravel pit, this is definitely not what we want as taxpayers. It’s what all levels of governments want and this includes the developer.

We, as taxpayers, had better wake up to what is happening to our city, and give a strong message to our local government that we do not want this destruction and ugliness to take place on Vedder Mountain. What Mr. Kirkness wants to do to Vedder Mountain is disgusting and will be ugly and visible.

I live in Websters Landing, which is in Sardis, and I already see this mountain being stripped; I see it from the freeway and other areas of this city as well. Yes, I wonder how many of our good citizens will stand up and be counted against this being given approval.

Where does our local government stand on this? We sure are not hearing anything from our elected officials. They are being awfully quiet despite articles and letters to the editor about this destruction (let’s call it what it is). This doesn’t just affect Yarrow; it will have an impact on all of us.

We, as taxpayers and residents, need to get a very strong message across to our local government that if they approve what this developer is trying to convince them – that this will be concealed – then they are burying their head in the sand like an ostrich, and they are doing a great injustice to all who live in this beautiful setting.
