Ojai Residents Speak Out Against Mine Proposal

Ojai and Cuyama area residents spoke out at a Santa Barbara County Planning Commission hearing on 7/11 against a proposal from Diamond Rock Mine to run as many as 138 gravel truck trips a day along Highway 33. Nonetheless, with a 4-1 vote, the commission approved the gravel mine’s 30-year permit. Ojai residents fear the trucks will ruin the safety of their roads and Cuyama residents expressed concern about the mines’ impact on their water table.
