We Didn't Want Carroll Canyon in Mira Mesa, San Diego to Be a Quarry, and We Don't Want It to Become Stone Creek Development

    In Mira Mesa a planning subgroup was created for the Stone Creek development proposal:

    The land owner is Vulcan Materials, the mining enterprise behind the controversial Black Marsh Farms Mine in "a sensitive environmental area:"

Vulcan will mine approximately 372 acres of Albert Wachtmeister's tree nursery farm along the scenic Rappahannock River. The Caroline County Planning Commission project rejection doesn't matter:

    Vulcan and the operations it acquired in Carroll Canyon affected the flood channel:

One expects sand and gravel mining to degrade wildlife habitat, pollute water, and contribute to erosion and ground instability. Construction would bring traffic, noise, and pollution for months.

    Like I've said for other neighborhoods, there's plenty of housing and commercial property available in Mira Mesa:

      As a former long-time resident of San Diego County, I care about the preserving and protecting the delicate ecosystems in areas like Carroll Canyon. I don't believe that short-term mining interests are justified when a natural area will be destroyed by them.
