U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Permit Information
The document can be found here. The deadline for public comments was April 15, 2013. Thank you to everyone who submitted comments, together we sent close to 1,000 individual comments opposing the dump in Gregory Canyon.
Thank you to everyone who attended the public comment meeting on Jan. 31 at 6 p.m. at the California Center for the Arts in Escondido. Hundreds of people attended the meeting and told the Army Corps of Engineers that this dump is NOT in the public's interest. We outnumbered the developer's paid staff over 3 to 1. You can read the news coverage of the evening in our news section here.
The notice for the public comment period from the Army Corps of Engineers can be found here. It includes specific factors that the Army Corps of Engineers will evaluate in issuing its permit including whether the dump is in the public's best interest. More information on why the dump is not in the public's best interest can be found in the brochures from our recent rally to save Gregory Canyon. This brochure provides distinct reasons why the dump is not in the public's best interest. Here is another brochure with more details on the impact of a dump in Gregory Canyon.
At this point the Army Corps of Engineers will consider our comments and hopefully determine once and for all that this dump is NOT in the public's best interest.
