Update on Platte Sand & Gravel's permit process
Posted by Bruce Rippe on 9/7/2001, 4:58 pm
Hello. My name is Bruce Rippe, and with a lot of help from Joe Pinner, I'm finally able to post a message on this site. I live on Weld County Road 36 about 1.5 miles south of the present Fort St. Vrain momument site. I have the honor of being the designated spokesperson for our local neighborhood group who have been opposing the proposed sand & gravel mine operation by Platte Sand & Gravel, LLC. There are about 40-50 residents, surrounding property owners and members of the Platteville community who have been organized in this effort since the permit application was first filed in November, 2000. I will do my best to keep the readers of this bulletin board as up-to-date as I can regarding this process. Joe has been doing a great job already from what I've read of his postings on the main web site. I will do my best to fill in some of the details as the process keeps shifting as we head into the 10th month of this work. I appreciate your patience as I get this information to you. Right now I need to close and get the evening chores and feeding done. If you have specific questions which you would like to address directly to me, you're welcome to use my e-mail address as it is posted here.
