Same folks that buy a house by site 300 would buy a house built next to an existing airport. And in both instances would complain about the existence of either after they move in.

Now, would you worry more about site 300 contamination affecting your health or valley fever?

Unless you are building next to a firing table, there is no cause for concern. Especially since the city is providing the water (might even be Hetch Hetchy water).

Valley fever? Yes! Now there is a legit cause for concern. I know four people that have contracted VF at Site 300. If they do eventually break ground for the proposed housing development, the heavy equipment operators better be wearing respirators.

"Unless you are building next to a firing table, there is no need for concern."

I suggest you review the compelling list of reasons for building the Contained Firing Facility at Site 300 including the growing concerns of the California Air Resources Board at the time. The "down winders" might be interested even if they don't live next to a "firing table". The Altamont hills are frequented with fires and winds that transport legacy surface contamination farther away than "firing tables" at Site 300. Air quality and rain runoff from Site 300 near a new home development, associates parks, and other pedestrian areas are reasonable concerns. The existence of "Valley Fever" in the area does not nullify proximity based Site 300 hazards.

Site 300 is a red-hot, backwards mess. It should have been closed a decade ago.

Why is Site 300 still open? It was to have been closed 15 years ago. What a waste of money.

Federalize Site 300.

Each new Tracy resident absorbs its amount of contaminants and binds it in sequestered carbon chains. Cleaner environment thats buried in a cemetery when the new resident passes.
