Subject: Update on Lamy No Crude Activity

No Crude Oil in Lamy (NoCOIL) e-BLAST for March 19, 2014


Here's the latest:


·  Massive Turnout Needed! The next BCC meeting is this coming Tuesday, March 25, 2014, in the 2nd floor council chambers at 102 Grant Ave. We need your attendance at the Matters for the Public portion of the meeting which commences at 4:00 PM. Plan to arrive by 3:30 PM. Although action on the proposed CR 33 ordinance is not on the agenda, we will be able to express our concerns on the issue during this session. Depending on the turnout, your comments may be limited to two minutes. Comment guidelines:

    • Comments should not mention or be directed at any commissioner, department head, or the county attorney
    • Comments should be voiced in a respectful manner (tone of voice, language, etc.)
    • Appropriate subjects for comment include:
      • Concerns over the lengthy delay in the ordinance drafting process
      • The length of time it is taking to put the ordinance on the BCC agenda
      • Public safety concerns and costly road degradation caused by these delays 
    • Mark your calendars with these CR 33 ordinance-related BCC meeting dates:
      • March 25, 4:00 PM - Matters for the Public
      • April 8 - Proposed ordinance on agenda
      • April 22 - BCC vote

·  Our next community-wide meeting date is yet to be confirmed based on availability of meeting facilities. Stay tuned for date, place and time.

·  Congratulations to our friends at Save La Bajada Mesa. The CRDC 5-2 vote against the proposed basalt mine is an important step in stopping the ill-conceived project.


Please forward this e-BLAST to other interested parties.

Spur Ranch Road Update

Dear Neighbors,


Here are a few  update items:

1.Bob Sherwin of RoadPacker/Bionic Soil Solutions has informed us that we're still on track to get our road resurfaced sometime this Spring, before the rains start. At the moment, the road is bumpier than we would like, but it's definitely passable.


2.A person or persons unknown graded part of the road between the RR tracks and Calle Junipero. While we appreciate the help, please let me or any of the directors know in advance if you want to volunteer this kind of effort in the future. We want to make sure that the grading is done properly and we also don't want to create a problem by inadvertently scheduling our normal grading company to duplicate the work.


3. We've observed some vehicle traffic coming from a dirt road in Tierra Bello onto SRR. This violates the promise made to us by Mr. Joe Miller (who was unaware that this is happening) that residents and contractors from Tierra Bello would not use SRR. We've notified Mr. Miller of the problem and have erected last week a barrier and sign blocking SRR from the dirt road (attached photo) Director Al Webster took the lead on thia.  Please let us know if you see any unauthorized traffic from that subdivision on SRR. Once that development is completed, there will be a lot of traffic entering and leaving the subdivision. We want to nip in the bud any inappropriate use of our road before bad habits get formed.
