WITHDRAW your application to build a 4900-head hog confinement (P355) in Rippey, Washington Township, Greene County IA.
DO NOT BUILD IN RIPPEY! DO NOT BUILD NEAR OUR HOMES!
In the 6/10/12 Des Moines Register article, Ron Prestage was quoted as saying,
"We don't want to be close to residences ... We try to do the right thing. But there's been times when we just walked away because it didn't work out."
The confinement IS close to residences.
OUR homes. OUR friends' homes. A tourism-related business.
It does NOT work out for US. We believe a confinement so close will will negatively impact neighbors' quality of life and property values.
Please "do the right thing" and "walk away."
WITHDRAW your application to build a hog confinement in Rippey IA!
