Rasco: Public Comment to the Dover Planning Board, May 17, 2010: CRGD

May 17, 2010

Dear Dover Planning Board Co-Chairs Wylock and LaRobardier,

We believe that the Rasco Application should be held  to the same high standards as every project proposed in or adjacent to the Great Swamp Critical Environmental Area.  This should be especially true for Rasco,  a business that relies on bringing Petroleum Contaminated Soils to a site above our single source Aquifer. Why should Rasco be granted an exception that would have been unthinkable for its neighbor, Cricket Valley Energy, or the Dover Knolls and Wind Rose developments up river?

The fact that the application arrived at your desks is another matter all together.

Thank you for doing everything in your power to protect the water supply of the residents of Dover and Wingdale, and for giving the “hard look” to all site plan proposals within the Great Swamp CEA, as required under SEQR.
