American Cement Legal Fund Donations
The Albuquerque/Bernalillo County Air Quality Division has recently approved a permit for American Cement to operate 24/7 in the North Valley. The new permit lacks adequate conditions to ensure the health and qualiy of life for neighbrhood residents.
On November 2, 2009, the Greater Gardner Neighborhood Association and North Valley Coalition of Neighborhood Associations filed a petition to appeal the decision to approve the American Cement Air Quality Permit 0902-M3. An appeal hearing will take place within 60 days. We desperately need help paying legal fees for the appeal, which are estimated to be between $5,000 and $15,000. The law firm of Nancy L. Simmons has agreed to represent the neighborhood and has provided some pro bono support at no cost, but there's a lot of work ahead that requires financial support.
