Neighbors protest proposed Helena Valley gravel pit #Gravel_PitJanuary 29, 2020
If you go What : Public meeting on the proposed Helena Valley gravel pit
A spokesperson for the DEQ said that the application included a form signed by the county stating the site’s zoning was acceptable for opencut operations.
The proposed pit’s potential neighbors have raised a number of concerns related to issues such as water quality, air quality, flooding, and increased traffic flow and safety, to name a few.
The DEQ is currently in the process of reviewing the application and Water Resource Assessment submitted by the operator, according to a spokesperson.
Harper believes the law favors industry like this mining pit as long as regulations are followed, regardless of the impact on the public.
Harper also brought attention to the traffic and safety issue he believes the pit will bring.
Resident Sam Wattnew said many of those he has spoken to in the neighborhoods have been elderly people who are sensitive to water and air quality issues.
The county is not involved in the review process and there are currently no zoning regulations in that area, a spokesperson said.
“We understand that those residents living near a proposed site often have more knowledge of the area than DEQ,” a DEQ spokesperson said.
“If public comments reveal substantial issues not adequately addressed in the proposed Plan of Operation, DEQ may extend its review of the application.”
Adult spanking is a curious thing. I mean, most of us did not like being spanked as children. We dreaded spankings, didn’t we? So, why do so many of us long to be spanked as adults. I think for some of us, it is for sexual pleasure. For others, it is to meet an emotional need. Maybe we feel we deserve it before we enjoy fucking. Some parts of society make women feel we are bad if we enjoy being fucked. So, maybe we feel better about our longing if we are punished first. I will tell you why I want you to spank me.
