Bill blocking Gregory Canyon landfill advances

Full Senate approval expected next week after committee action

By Michael Gardner
Originally published 3:29 p.m., May 26, 2011, updated 3:29 p.m., May 26, 2011
Sacramento — Legislation aimed at blocking the contentious Gregory Canyon landfill project in North County is moving to the state Senate floor, where both sides expect it to pass next week.
The measure sailed through the Senate Appropriations Committee Thursday on a 6-1 vote with Chairwoman Christine Kehoe, D-San Diego, the lone dissenter.
“I am in the minority. I am not certain that will change,” Kehoe said in predicting Senate approval.
Sen. Juan Vargas, D-San Diego, who is carrying the bill, said the bipartisan vote in the committee is a clear sign.
“It’s hard to get Democrats and Republicans in Sacramento to agree on anything,” Vargas said after the vote. “It bodes well.”
The Natural Resources Defense Council and Pala Band of Mission Indians issued joint statements praising the action.
“It’s irresponsible to build a garbage dump next to a sacred site like Gregory Mountain that is so spiritually important to the Luiseno people, and in a location that directly threatens critical drinking water sources for San Diego County residents,” said Damon Nagami, attorney for the environmental group.
The landfill is proposed for just off State Route 76 near the Pala Indian Reservation. It would span 308 acres inside a 1,770-acre parcel about three miles east of Interstate 15 and two miles southwest of the community of Pala. The San Luis Rey River is nearby.
The proposed Gregory Canyon landfill has been embroiled in controversy since its unveiling about 20 years ago.
It went before county voters in 1994 and again in 2004. Both times voters sided with the developers.
Kehoe cites those ballot results for her opposition. “The people of San Diego County have voted on this issue twice,” she said. “I feel very strongly that has to be respected.”
Earlier this month county supervisors voted to oppose the legislation because they see it as an unwelcome intrusion into local affairs.
But Vargas said the state has intervened before, most recently by requiring fluoride in drinking water.
Landfill supporters say all of the necessary environmental protection standards will be met. The county also is running out of space for its trash, they say.
“The need is well-established,” Jim Simmons, the project manager, testified in a committee hearing earlier this week.
Vargas, who said he had twice voted for the project, has now aligned himself with opponents, including Native American tribes and environmental groups.
Gregory Mountain, or “Chokla,” is considered a resting place for a tribal spirit named Takwic. There is also a medicine rock marked with Native American pictographs nearby, supporters of the bill say.
“They can re-site their garbage dump, but we cannot move our sacred mountain,” testified David Quintana, a Pala band representative.
The measure would still have to clear the Assembly if it passes the Senate and be signed by the governor to become law.


Granite's numbers racket

Granite's numbers racket

Granite Construction representatives, the folks who want to bring you Liberty Quarry, are digging a hole in which they may bury themselves. Who knows why, but they’ve committed to an environmental impact report that demonstrably is based
on conjecture and fake
It is so flawed as to be meaningless.
According to Betsy Lowrey, the Temecula city planner who scrutinized both the draft and final environmental reports regarding traffic numbers — she knows them every other which way — they’re bunk.
The county agrees, as is evidenced by its throwing out the traffic studies, known as Appendix K1, from the impact report.
To quote from her email on the subject:
A Granite employee
“raw count of 1385 trucks (including many types) was followed by the consultant count which was 1113 trucks — but only 931 aggregate trucks. Granite used the consultant’s count ... . I see nothing to indicate any count was cut in half.”
“... the original report dated April 5, 2005 (that did not make it into the EIR and attaches the raw truck counts) assumes that “if development occurs at a maximum extraction, the project” could result in a savings of 9.36 million truck miles per year.
“It appears Granite nearly doubled their assumption” in a later report to 16.5 million truck miles per year.
“What should be (understood),” she writes, is that the data — Appendix K1 — and Granite’s many assumptions of and references to reduced truck miles thereafter — were not found acceptable by the traffic section of the report, which concluded truck traffic will get worse, not better, in the county.
So, when it comes to traffic stuff, everyone rejects Appendix K1, right?
Granite EIR consultants do one of two things:
One: “Forget” about the traffic section’s determination and use the discredited data; or,
Two: Resort to weasel words because they can’t admit the Traffic Section determined the “science” was hokum and the impacts could not be mitigated.
In short: “No reduction in traffic or trucks anywhere in the county,” concludes Lowrey.
Unfazed and undeterred, Granite continues to lie to the commission, valley and county residents, and the supervisors by using baseless — meaningless, really — numbers to support specious arguments regarding the quarry’s true impact on the viability of the quarry and the resultant impact on the county’s economy.
Let no one go away from these hearings believing the numbers, conclusions and real impacts of the proposed quarry — on everything that breathes and sucks up sunshine — are in any way reflected in Granite’s environmental impact report.
It’s an insult.
Regarding Granite’s veracity, Councilmember Maryann Edwards said in an email: The opponents’ closing arguments will be brought to you by the word

 Go home, Granite Construction

"Not in my backyard."
It might sound selfish. It might sound unscientific. It might not sound economic. It might sound "environmental." But let me be clear ---- because we live here and because we are united ---- Liberty Quarry will never happen.
Granite Construction needs to cut its losses now and forget about this community-killing quarry. Get out before you lose more money. We will not stand for it. Go home, Granite Construction!
"Not in my backyard" is a powerful social phenomenon. United communities can prevail over politically well-connected and powerful business interests. I have seen it before.
Prior to moving to the Temecula Valley in 2002, I witnessed firsthand how a united South Orange County fought and defeated North Orange County in the epic El Toro airport battle.
Newport Beach and other North Orange County elites wanted to cram a major international airport into the middle of a thriving suburban area. Through it all, South Orange County remained united. They remained undeterred through two devastating and narrowly lost county measures. They won a third measure, but it was overturned in the courts. The Orange County Board of Supervisors opposed them at every turn for 10 years. But in the end, it just took one victory to slay the Goliath Newport Beach elites.
In 2002, voters passed a fourth initiative, Measure W ---- called the Orange County Central Park and Nature Preserve Initiative ---- and the El Toro airport was defeated.
To defeat this quarry, we must stand united and not be discouraged by setbacks. We must be prepared to take the fight to the Board of Supervisors. We must be prepared to sponsor ballot initiatives. And we must be prepared to fight in the courts.
I think that it is time to organize and draft a county measure on the zoning of the site. The measure would be short, well-written, and possibly would say that the zoning of the site shall be rural residential, or that the Liberty Quarry site shall not be zoned for mining. Activities to put the measure on the ballot would be postponed until after a loss at the Supervisory level.
I think there would be both short- and intermediate-term advantages to drafting a measure at this time. I agree with others that this will also go to the courts, but I do think that the quarry opponents will remain more vibrant and intact if they have a county measure to rally together behind, now.
It may tip the balance of any uncertain supervisors who are undecided as to how they are going to vote. And importantly ---- if on the ballot in June 2012 ---- with the new local-centric political boundaries, the quarry could easily become a litmus test for local candidates.
If the planning commission and the Board of Supervisors approve the quarry, we could be in for a long battle. But because we are united and will not give up, in the end, we will prevail. Liberty Quarry will fail.

Quarry crowd smaller, not as rowdy

Last week's hearing was packed, but when Tuesday's hearing started a little after 4 p.m., there were rows of empty seats -- but still hundreds in the church. Once again, opponents wore orange t-shirts and hats, and supporters -- fewer in number by comparison -- wore green.
Roth read information from county planners indicating 415 people signed forms showing they opposed the quarry, and 27 signed forms in support.
Pro-quarry speakers kicked off hours of public testimony. Leading off was William Smith of Laborers' International Union of North America Local 1184.
Smith said roughly 500 of his union's 4,000 members were out of work. "The only thing that's going to revitalize this economy is private sector jobs," he said.
Jessica Vulovic of Temecula said she supported the quarry after her son's best friend was struck and killed by a truck carrying aggregate, the building material to be produced by the quarry. Quarry developer Granite Construction says the quarry will take trucks off the road since it will be a local aggregate source, although critics say more truck traffic would be created.
Opponents who spoke included Cynthia Myers, who said she lives near the quarry site. She urged commissioners not to "allow a giant corporation to inflict this noisy and obnoxious scar on our communities. Please give us liberty from this quarry."
The quarry would be in the foothills between Temecula and San Diego County. Granite maintains the quarry, which would operate for 75 years and occupy at least 135 acres of a 414-acre site off Interstate 15. The company says the quarry would provide the region with about 100 high-paying jobs and hundreds of millions of dollars in sales tax revenue while not being seen or heard by surrounding areas.
Critics say Granite's technical studies are flawed and deceptive. They say the quarry will lead to silica dust entering people's lungs and endangering their health.
The quarry will lower property values, damage local tourism and a neighboring ecological reserve and cause noise and light pollution, opponents say. The Temecula City Council and the Pechanga Band of LuiseƱo Indians are among the groups against the project.
Commissioners Jim Porras and John Snell were absent Tuesday. County Deputy Counsel Shellie Clack said they chose not to take part pending an opinion by the state Fair Political Practices Commission.
The FPPC was asked by the county to determine whether Snell and Porras have a conflict of interest because Snell's wife and Porras are teachers. Due to state mineral rights, California's teachers' retirement fund stands to benefit financially if the quarry is approved.
