Commuting (02/17/2013)
From: Mary Cichanowski

Density control for rural areas was put in the zoning ordinance so people will live closer to where they work, it’s better for the environment. Now, the argument against silica sand mining is that Winona and St. Charles are bedroom communities for people who work in Rochester. Perhaps we need a commuting tax on people who work in one city and live in another so we can fund a study of the long term effects of commuting on the environment and roads. Moreover, I fear we are not being tolerant of alternative lifestyles. Specifically, a lifestyle that promotes hard work, job creation, a growing economy, and the ability to use one’s property to earn a living for self and family.

Finally, I am worried about an “all natural toothpaste” shortage if we ban sand mining. The one I use lists hydrated silica as an ingredient.
