Get any comments in on this dEIR by today or tomorrow!  Issues are outlined well in this public comment letter from the Green Springs Ranch homeowners association.  Widespread public comment is needed, and a loud voice from El Dorado County is imperative, to be heard by the Sac County supervisors.  Help is needed; do not be silent!

post amended to include this sample letter; send to

Subject: DEIR Mather Airport Master Plan, Control No. 2002-0325

Dear Sacramento County Environmental Coordinator,

I am a resident of El Dorado County and am opposed to the proposed expansion of Mather airport and the noise that it will bring.  I support the El Dorado County Board of Supervisors' request for the following: 

1)  Return ‘cargo operations’ back to its origin, Sacramento International Airport (SIA), because it has the infrastructure to accommodate air cargo operations without the increased impact to neighboring communities.
2)  Stop the installation of an Airport Category IIIb Instrument Landing System at Mather which will enable a huge increase in cargo flights to Mather that would otherwise be routed to SIA, where the system is already in place. 

Thank you,

[Your Name]
