Opposing the Amended Scoping Report (August 3, 2015)

Lori Lamson, Assistant Town Manager
Town of Apple Valley
14955 Dale Evans Parkway
Apple Valley, CA 92307

Ms. Lamson,

I wish to register my opposition to the EIR Scoping Report in its entirety.

It is clear from reading it (and its predecessor) that Rincon Consultants is getting the mushroom treatment from the Town; being kept in the dark and being fed manure.

As a result, the Scoping Report produced by Rincon is fit only for other mushrooms. Not being (or wanting to be) a mushroom, I object to this report from beginning to end.

Just so I’m not giving only negative feedback, I have a suggestion that will obviate the need for further scoping reports, and other related activities and expenses: Have the Town to sell whatever water rights it has to Apple Valley Ranchos, and give up any pretense of being in the water business now and forever, so we can have adults running our water system.

Greg Raven is Co-Chair of Apple Valley Citizens for Government Accountability, and is concerned about quality of life issues.
