Vail Daily letter: Against gravel proposal

The Town of Gypsum is considering an application to annex property TEN MILES from the town center in one of the most beautiful corridors remaining in the state — the Colorado River above Gypsum. The sole purpose would be to allow an open pit gravel mine.

Gypsum has no business considering this. The mining operation will impact the entire county. Therefore, Eagle County should be handling this application.

The final hearing on this application is set for next Tuesday, December 13. Please. Show up at the Gypsum Town Hall and express your opinion about a gravel pit mine along the Colorado River. At the very least, go to the Town’s web site and send a letter to the Town Council. Don’t let the elected representatives of Gypsum decide this important county issue,
