As a non-motorcycle owner, I would like to comment on the “Carnegie closure postponed as lawsuit continues” article in the Tracy Press on Dec. 30 (Page 4).
On occasion, I drive Corral Hollow Road to work in the Pleasanton area. I always thought Carnegie Vehicular State Recreation Area was located in a perfect place, away from residents who would complain about the noise and dust.
I know a few people who used to ride at Carnegie more than 30 years ago, so I know the park has been there for quite some time. But after all these years, it seems to be an issue.
The city of Tracy and the Redbridge community tried to keep out the peaker plant, but were not successful. But here we have one resident who appears to be able to shut down Carnegie after all these years of operation, and yet I am not supposed to believe it has nothing to do with Mark Connolly’s political connections?
I’m sure Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory’s Site 300 is producing much higher levels of pollution in the groundwater and air. So why isn’t Mr. Connolly concerned about this?
It’s really too bad someone doesn’t use their time and connections to clean up something that truly would make a positive impact to the residents and city of Tracy.
These motorcycle riders are out having good, clean fun. They are not shooting up our city, dealing drugs or stealing. They are in a remote location, not bothering anyone.
