      I have to travel route 9 everyday to get anywhere. It is already a dangerous road where people drive way too fast and the addition of so many trucks would make it even more so. Not to mention the environmental factor and the fact that we live here because it is a green gem, quiet and peaceful. Mining would ruin that.

      This is spot zoning to benefit one land owner and it is wrong, unethical, and illegal. It is unfathomable to give a windfall to one family in exchange for the destruction of the natural habitat and safety of the water supply for many thousands over many decades.

      I wish we had more support in stopping Graymoor from opening their open air waste treatment facility. I know what it's like to have to live next to something atrocious that slips by others. Additionally, Philipstown will more than likely ignore their land sore concessions on your property assessment. Better to halt it now, at least for review and concessions (if at all).

      Mining in this area is wrong! Philipstown is a beautiful area and should stay that way
