Dear Nevada County Supervisors and Planning Commissioners,    

My name is [your name will be added here]. I live at [your address will be added here].

As a concerned citizen, I am asking you to “just say no” to re-opening the Idaho-Maryland Mine and do not certify the flawed Environmental Impact Report. The project  has significant and unavoidable environmental impacts that endanger this community's health and quality of life. A few jobs and uncertain tax revenues just aren’t worth the risk.

Thanks for submitting!
