CONCERNED CITIZENS WORKING TOGETHER

STOP COTTONWOOD SAND MINE

ABOUT US

We are a group of concerned community members and other stakeholders who oppose the Cottonwood Golf Club turning into a sand mine in the middle of a beautiful residential community in Rancho San Diego. Our goal is to stop San Diego County from approving this proposed project. 

 

On behalf of the Cottonwood Golf Club owner, Cottonwood Cajon Es, LLC, Greg Brown of New West Investment Group, Inc. applied for project permits for the Cottonwood Sand Mining Project through San Diego County Planning and Development Services on November 19, 2018. The project proposes to operate a sand mine and processing plant in the Jamacha Valley of the Sweetwater River for approximately 10 years.

The project, if approved, will mine on 214 acres of the 280-acre property and will extract and process over 7 million tons of material during the 10-year period resulting in 5.7 million tons of marketable aggregate. Operations will start as early as 7:00am and large trucks will make at least 176 daily round trips  Monday through Friday between 9:00am and 3:30pm - that's 27 heavy trucks coming or going on Willow Glen Drive every hour or at least a heavy truck going by every 2 minutes!

Community members need to know about the project and the many problems it will bring to surrounding communities if approved. We must work together to stop it and save our community!
