'Silicon Valley's Version of Standing Rock': The Sargent Ranch Quarry Project dEIR is out, and public-comment ends on September 26 (5:00 PM). The Sargent Ranch Quarry Project would be a 403-acre open pit mine, sited on a portion of Juristac in Santa Clara County. Juristac is the most sacred Amah Mutsun ceremonial site and an incredibly sensitive ecological area. The Sargent Ranch Quarry Project dEIR can be found online at: https://plandev.sccgov.org/policies-programs/smara/sargent. The public redacted form of dEIR Appendix M (Cultural Resources) can be viewed at https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Nmod6oXZhbhF1CiFU88ANmf2aFANlxPSyF17QkldZIY/edit?usp=sharing. Public-comments should be emailed to Robert Salisbury, Senior Planner, at sgtquarry.comments [at] pln.sccgov.org.

Likewise, the Betabel Commercial Development dEIR is also out, and public-comment for that dEIR ends on September 6 (5:00 PM). ​This commercial project would be sited on a portion of Juristac located within the very northern portion of San Benito County. The dEIR for Betabel can be found at https://www.cosb.us/departments/resource-management-agency/planning-and-land-use-division/betabel. Public-comments should be sent to:
