Re: “County APCD, state parks headed to hearing over dust control violations

Why cant they come up with a natural environment method like planting trees as a barrier from the sand landing in residential areas. Not sure why Trilogy was approved if people who live there are going to ruin ourr area and economy by trying to shut down recreation that has been in our area for 75+ Years. It is ashame to shut down the only area beach that has a huge playground for OHVs. Heck, build a huge retaining wall. I know I have heard that the sand goes theough trees and up and over but this is something the wind will do regardless of whether the OHV riders are playing on the beach. The winds that blew a week ago carried dust for miles and this will never be contained so what is the real problem here. I understand the people for shutting diwn the beach are complaining for health reasons but we have been here for 60 years and no one that I know died from silica sand. Many people have died from smoking, alcohol, diabetes, or pourly ran factories, oil spills leading to problems, cancer, Altsheimers, Parkinsons Disease, even fires that cause pollution but no real scientific proof has shown statiscs about deaths from Silica Sand. If people are affected by the sand why dont they move. Several people have moved here from the Big Cities like Los Angeles, Fresno, Bakersfield, Orange County, Antelope Valley, San Francisco, and other States in the US where the pollution levels are out of this world and some of the highest polluted areas in the US. How has these types of pollutions from bad emissions, Diesel Trucks, fire, poor air quality from smog (chemicals), poison in the waterways, etc. affected peoples health and lungs. Many people have moved here in our area creating more pollution for the licals including heavier traffic, trucks, industries we never had in the past, factories, etc. causing our air quality to decline. So I guess you can say many of the people complaining who recently moved here have caused more problems and pollution for the local area by coming here. Did the developers not cut down trees and other landscape moving dirt and sand to build theses new homes. How about all the silica that was disturbed by pouring new concrete and building pathways, sidewalks, and all the blowers from the landscapers moving sand and dirt and pollution in the air creating more pollution for us.

I guess there are two sides to every story and some of these issues are man made but were not much of a problem years ago. How did this become such an issue when people have been living on the Mesa for hundreds of years with no complaints about their health. Yes the population ha grown but maybe this has caused a lot of the problems as well.

Grow trees, build a wall, divert the traffic away from these homes where the people complaining live but again the wind will not stop blowing in their direction so then what?

Concerned about our economy and people who have a huge stake in this area as well. What is the solution for the hundreds of businesses who rely on the tourists to keep this area alive. Food for thought!
