We OPPOSE the Prestage 5000-head hog confinement (PI 312) proposed on 295th near the TOWN of RIPPEY.
We ask you to DENY POINTS, FAIL THE MATRIX, and RECOMMEND TO THE DNR DENIAL OF THE PERMIT.
We believe a hog confinement at this location will be a nuisance to the town and neighbors. We also believe it will negatively impact the value of surrounding homes and properties.
It’s time you start working for the PEOPLE of Greene County who want something better than to be surrounded by confinements owned by out-of-town companies like Prestage.
Land-Owners, Neighbors, Local Businesses, Former Residents, Family, Friends, Tourists, and Guests of Greene County.
Why did we sign?
WE signed because WE want to protect OUR dreams, OUR quality of life, and OUR property values. Because WE care about what happens to OUR family, friends, neighbors, tourism, Greene County, and Iowa. Because WE want clean air, clean water, and sustainable agriculture. Because WE think half a job, a factory taxed like a machine shed, and increased road costs are NOT economic development.
WE SIGNED BECAUSE WE MATTER! RIPPEY MATTERS!
