Opposition to proposed Casino
We oppose the proposed casino to be built in our community. I ask that the Ridgecrest City Council reject the offer for the sale of lands North of Ward Ave and East of China Lake Blvd as proposed. I further ask that the city council reject any municipal service contract at this time. The potential negative effects outweigh the positive impacts especially when placed in contrast with the recent decision to close our local jail. We feel proceeding with the existing resources will have a negative effect on the quality of life in this community.
