Testimonials from your local community:
We have 3 paper mills within 30 miles of our Texarkana metroplex. Trees are sourced from those areas as well as others in close proximity. The timber industry provides tons of high paying jobs to our area. If they must source trees from further away and they become unprofitable they will close causing devastation to our economy around the metroplex. Greed seems to be what is driving this decision.
I have no history with this land; no family, farming. logging history at all. As only a 17 year resident of North East Texas this Reservoir project is wrong on so many levels!! Leave the land alone ! Go build your reservoirs, (or whatever you want to call them), on a Dallas golf course.
I work at Graphic Packaging (the paper mill in Domino, TX). If this moves forward, it would most likely be the end of the paper mill which has operated in this area since the 70s. It has provided over 900 with jobs and opportunities they may not have had, if not for the mill. We will not be able to sell our products (paper that is used to make consumer packaging such as cups, food packaging and pharmaceutical boxes, etc) This project will not only put over 900 employees out of a job but it will close a huge paper mill that helps several small communities thrive. This can't go forward!
THE BIG CITIES NEED TO LEAVE THE RURAL AREAS ALONE. WE HAVE OUR LIFE STYLE AND DO NOT NEED TO SACRIFICE OUR LAND, FOREST ETC TO TAKE CARE OF BIG CITIES.
They are trying to take away our whole lifestyle! It is wrong on so many levels! Our families have worked their whole lives for our land!
Anyone notice that all the rural lands resources are being stolen to fuel the big cities? The big cities say they care about the environment, but they just keep stealing resources from the county folks.
