Re: “Dusting off Gold Hill Mesa

This article is total crap. Do your homework. The heavy metals that are left from the gold mill have been remediated and capped. They don't blow around. That is all that is needed. The developer VOLUNTARILY cleaned it up with the state. It is safe. I'd worry a lot more if I were around that neighborhood, in the unremediated areas where the metals flowed to. So, you know, the old west side. We are in a mineral-rich area, there are tailings ALL OVER this town. In fact the Villa De mesa townhome community right next to Gold Hill has been there 25 years and is unremediated. No one has had any problems there.

Also, many people grow and eat food in Gold Hill. I haven't seen any kids with two heads. What you sign is not growing anything that has roots down to 6 feet, below the cap. Which is like one type of beet. So you can't grow that beet. Otherwise it's fine. Also, remediating a site close to a city center is a lot more socially responsible than buying a sprawl house on the east side. This community is doing good for this town

This guy is a joke of a journalist.
