GILA RIVER: NO 202!
Stop the South Mountain Freeway
Support us on our ongoing effort in protecting the Gila River Indian Community’s vital connection with Muadag Do’ag (South Mountain) and ensuring the mental, spiritual, and biological well being for today’s and tomorrow’s community members, by submitting written comments against the proposed South Mountain Loop 202 extensions.Friday June 3, 2011 is the deadline to submit your written comments to the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) about the proposed South Mountain extension to the 202 freeway. The State Transportation Board will consider all of the public comments before adopting the final program in June.
PLEASE TAKE TIME TO WRITE A LETTER STATING YOUR OPPOSITION TO THE SOUTH MOUNTAIN EXTENSION TO THE LOOP 202 TO:
ADOT Five Year Program
Communication and Community Partnerships
206 South 17th Avenue
Phoenix, AZ 85007
BACKGROUND:
The two currently proposed routes for the freeway are less than a mile apart and will have the same harmful effects on the Gila River Indian Community’s air quality, health and traditional cultural properties.
The on-reservation alignment will result in a loss of approximately 600 acres of tribal land, and the forced relocation of Akimel O’odham and Pee-Posh families.
The off-reservation alignment would gouge a 40-story high, 200-yard wide cut into South Mountain, which is sacred to all O’odham and Pee-Posh.
We are sending the message out that “No Build” is the only option that preserves the health of GRIC, respects O’odham and Pee-Posh traditions and is also beneficial for Laveen and Ahwatukee residents who will be affected by the noise and pollution of a new freeway.
