Marcella MacDonald of Superior has produced a petition opposing the Jefferson Parkway and public access to the Rocky Flats Wildlife Refuge. Signed copies will go to elected officials in city, county, state and federal governments. Here is the text:
Building a tolled four-lane highway and future hiking and biking trails on Rocky Flats Wildlife Refuge, formerly Rocky Flats Nuclear Weapons Plant, will cause plutonium and other radioactive materials to be released into the air, soil and water endangering the health, safety and well-being of surrounding communities. We need to set a precedent to every superfund site that any development on former nuclear sites is not acceptable!
To to do so, please go to rockyflatsnuclearguardianship.org to find resources for study and to find out how to lend your support.
