Last night a FB friend took these pics and I was astonished that they would let off indoor fireworks and let smoke & particulates in everybody’s airshed while they are trapped in their seats.
But Arlington always has a solution for pollution…vote it away…yep its called an MSD Municipal Setting Designation. The state environmental dept. says that council can vote to allow a known brownfields area to go without mandated clean up as long as the public is notified and has access to potable drinking water. Look at the below list of businesses that end up on this list..which now includes all that DRILLING “IN” our neighborhoods.
HB40 just passed the House and the state wants to take control over how close these drill sites can be to our families. I now envision drilling companies buying up homes above market price to tear a few down and make room for new padsites in even more Arlington neighborhoods… Even before HB40 Arlington’s local control rules were always friendly to the drillers. Call your rep. to vote no on HB 40.
