Ground the Fly­ing J

Santa Fe New Mexican - - OPINIONS -

The de­vel­op­ers for the pro­posed Pi­lot Fly­ing J truck stop on N.M. 14 at Ran­cho Viejo Boule­vard have an­nounced an­other re­quired com­mu­nity meet­ing after be­ing re­jected the sec­ond time by Santa Fe County. The of­fi­cials want to see what the whole 26-acre par­cel will look like fully de­vel­oped. The truck stop wants only 10 acres at this point (“Ran­cho Viejo res­i­dents op­pose truck stop plans,” May 10).

Why Santa Fe County just doesn’t just out­right re­ject this out­ra­geous pro­posal is be­yond me. The de­vel­op­ers need vari­ances to county or­di­nances, and the pro­posal flies in the face of the 2015 Sus­tain­able Growth Man­age­ment Plan, which was put in place to pro­tect and pre­serve our en­vi­ron­ment while pre­serv­ing Santa Fe County’s unique char­ac­ter. Come voice your opin­ion at 6 p.m. Sept. 25 at Santa Fe Com­mu­nity Col­lege. Wil­liam Hill III Santa Fe
