We oppose both of these proposals. The annexation proposal would remove that property from the San Diego County Tax Rolls at the same time that the expansion proposal would increase the Band's
use of roadways, police and fire services, and schools. Moreover, all reservation lands are exempt from local and state laws. We are primarily concerned that the expanded sand mining operations will have a significant negative
impact on our water resources, will increase traffic 700 percent on La Posta Truck Trail and Old Highway 80, will raise the fire and crime dangers, and will lower property values.
