Thank you for your feedback. As your address indicates, we are all impacted by our dependence on automobiles and highways.
Dane County has a multitude of quarries that supply the aggregate to build our highways. Many neighborhoods are impacted by quarries, yet we continue to need to repair existing roadways. As you know, the aggregate that will be quarried in the Albion neighborhood will be used for Highway 73. I imagine you use Highway 73 quite often.
I try to drive as little as possible and will continue to work with others to develop transportation alternatives. We, none of us, can continue to depend on the automobile and call ourselves environmentalist.
Yet, we do still have cars and paved roads. Those involved in the development of the Crazy Acres Quarry, the one I assume you refer to in your comments, worked with Dane County staff and the Zoning and Land Regulation Committee members to ensure us that quarry run off will be contained. The environmental impact will be minimized, as much as quarry operations can be, to ensure the health of the area land and water as well as those who live nearby.
I hope you will also work to reduce single vehicle transportation. Perhaps one day, we will no longer need roads, and thereby, no longer need quarries.

On Sept. 18 Mary Kolar reaffirmed her vote as a member of the ZLR, against the majority of the Dane County Board of Supervisors to place a huge blasting quarry on a slope draining into the pristine Albion Prairie protected wetland corridor and next to homes with small children, and the elderly, ruining the peace and endangering the values of people homes, endangering already permitted business uses of neighboring properties and promoting heavy truck traffic onto the only direct route to emergency fire and medical services to Albion Prairie residents. Ask her why she voted to give profit to big corporations over peoples rights to health, safety, and peaceful enjoyment of their homes. Ask her why she choose the profit of two big corporations over the perservation of rare wildlife habitat and clean water for all.

Go Mary. We may have to change our voter registration from CA to WI.
