Let Our Voices Be Heard! NO MUSHROOM PLANT

Let your voice be heard. Tell the Mamakating Planning Board that you are against the inappropriate Yukiguni mushroom plant and that the Final Environmental Impact Statement is NOT APPROVABLE. Yukiguni states in its environmental impact statement that \"only a small vocal group\" is against the project. We need to show them they are wrong. Community members easily distributed 200 No Mushroom Plant signs, 35 residents spoke at the planning board hearing and still others submitted written comments about the impacts the project would have. During this final comment period on the final environmental impact statement we need support from those of you who do not want an 80ft high, almost 900,000 square foot building on Rt. 209 which is twice the height of Kohls and almost 3 times as many square feet. In addition, the jobs are low paying, the water consumption is outrageous and free, and they will add 20-30 trucks a day to traffic on our roads. The Mamakating Planning Boards needs to issue a \"negative\" finding in order to stop Yukiguni in their tracks. The Final Environmental Impact Statement demonstrates that the actions chosen by Yukiguni DO NOT avoid or minimize adverse environmental impacts and they DO NOT BALANCE THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS WITH SOCIAL, ECONOMIC AND OTHER NUMEROUS CONSIDERATIONS.

    Comments: this proposed plant will use enormous amounts of water. It will generate enormous amounts of waste. Initially, in the building process, it may produce many good well paying jobs. However, when the construction is completed it will attract people who will accept low paying wages, which will infact overload and tax the infrastructure of the area. Especially the schools, and housing availability. Not to mention the impact of the unsightlyness of such a huge building on the picturesque Shwangunk Mountains. Which are a major attraction for tourists and locals as well.

    Comments: I live directly over the mountain from this new mushroom plant. More and more every day beautiful rural areas like the Bashakill are being developed and exploited and this ones in my backyard. NO MUSHROOM PLANT!
