Gravel Trucks Prompt Meeting

Ojai’s scenic Highway 33 may not be so scenic anymore if the proposed Diamond Rock Sand and Gravel Mine in Cuyama Valley is approved.
Ojai’s landowners, school officials, business leaders and environmentalists are joining hands to fight the possibility of increasing truck traffic on Highway 33.
The proposed mine could add as many as 138 one-way truck trips on the scenic highway each day.
Los Padres ForestWatch, a local watchdog organization that seeks to protect the Los Padres National Forest has organized a community meeting to bring together concerned citizens on Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the Chaparral Auditorium.
