Please take action and add your name to the 800 signatures telling our Governor and the DNR Commissioner that we need a Public Interest Determination before any further coal leasing or permitting activities take place in the Matanuska Valley.

Our property values and the health of our families are at stake. Common sense says that it is unhealthy to live near coal mines. No one wants dirty coal dust in the air, constant blasting and over one hundred 75 ton coal trucks each day in their neighborhood. Property values and public health will suffer if coal mining is permitted near our homes and businesses.

Tell our Governor and DNR commissioner to protect our families and property values by requiring a full Public Interest Determination before any further coal development occurs in the Matanuska Valley.

See a coal blast in slow motion at the Usibelli Coal Mine web site. The dust and other air pollutants from this project will impact the entire Matanuska Valley. Also, please note that Usibelli Coal Mine mentions how these new open pit mining techniques reduce the need for employees. This is not your grandfather’s coal mine.

Your Actions are Needed Today!

Tell our Governor and DNR commissioner to protect our families and property values by requiring a full Public Interest Determination before any further coal development occurs in the Matanuska Valley.

A Public Interest Determination is needed.

    Bill and Natalie are real people, real locals trying to get a VA home loan. It is sad that the coal company has encouraged people to harass these real local faces of coal who have already been shocked enough at seeing their loan denied because of the close proximity to a proposed coal mine. There are many more real stories of home loans being denied. KTUU had a story in April about a real local family with 4 children who were denied a construction loan from Mat Valley Credit Union to put the roof on their home. They had to borrow cash from family to put a roof over their children’s heads.
