We, the residents of the Frazier Mountain Communities, residing in the zip codes 93225 and 93243, petition our representative Ray Watson to work to reinstate the no-burn regulation exemption in communities located at an elevation of 3,000 feet or higher for the following reasons: 1) The San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District appears to have no data relevant to to the mountain communities to justify the removal of the exemption in mid-October, 2008. 2) There is no credible demonstrated effect on the intended goal to decrease air-born particulate matter PM 2.5 in the San Joaquin Valley. 3) The Frazier Mountain Communities are at an elevation of 4,500 feet and higher and therefore not geographically part of the San Joaquin Valley. 4) Burn restrictions place undue financial hardship on Frazier Mountain Community residents.

Warren Willis, United States6 years ago Comments: From all I read, there seems to be no valid science behind the decision to incorporate the Frazier Park area into the NO BURN restrictions imposed by the AIR Quality Management District.. This appears to be purely a political decision and a bad one at that. This action needs to be rescinded. The residents affected by this move will not forget when the polititions want future support.
