Reader’s Letter: Drag racing strip

POSTED: 09/25/12 12:33 PM

Dear Editor:

I see the Drag Racing Association had a rally on Sunday to show support for their drag racing strip. I understand that this is a legitimate sport for many. I have no problems with that.

But, and this is a big but… I cannot support a drag strip being located near the Zoo and I cannot support a drag strip if it means filling in more of the Salt Pond.

A drag strip near the Zoo with the noise and pollution simply cannot be healthy for the animals.

The Salt Pond is a mess already. Let’s think about cleaning it up, restoring what we can and preserving what is left.

Let’s not make a bad situation worse. Let’s not damage our environment any more than we have done already!

Is that too hard to understand?

Is that too much to ask?
