MRF Zoning Contradiction

To The Editor:

I attended the City Council candidate debate on Feb. 27 at the Senior Center. I would like to correct an important misstatement that candidate Diane Trautman, currently a city planning commissioner, made when asked if she would support a MRF at the latest proposed site: 75.11 acres on the east side of Sierra Highway, just north of Placerita Canyon Road, between Sierra Highway and Highway 14.

She stated that 45 percent of the proposed property was zoned industrial and that she would probably support a clean MRF on the industrial portion. What is being proposed there is a dirty MRF that processes all garbage except liquids.

The property being considered is not currently zoned industrial. On Feb. 12, the project planner, Darin Seegmiller, dropped a letter on the doorstep of some of the homes that will be overlooking the proposed facility. I the letter he states there will be a required zone change from Business Park (and Residential Low to Industrial Commercial.

Also, the official project description provided by Mr. Seegmiller states that one of the six entitlements requested by Burrtec is a General Plan Amendment and Zone Change to change the designation of all three parcels to Industrial Commercial.
