No Mining - Preserve Philadelphus and Buie Pond sign now

We, the undersigned, are opposed to industrial zoning of the Philadelpus Community and the mining development of Philadelphus and Buie Pond proposed by Buie Lakes Plantation, LLC as well as the company's concerns, interests and stakeholders.

Mining development is an environmental threat and major pollutor that will disturb and mar the cultural, heritage and historical value of the community, and will destroy the environmental virtue and pristine habitat of wildlife, flora, fauna, forest and endangered species common to woodlands, wetlands, Carolina Bays, lakes and ponds -- all of which describe and define the environs and virtues of the Buie Philadelphus Community and Buie Pond, also known as John Pat Buie's Pond, Brown's Pond and more recently, 'Buie Lakes Plantation.'

Likewise, industrial mining and sand mining plants are hazardous and menacing and must be prohibited in residential and residential-agricultural communities. If allowed, industrial mining and sand mining would disturb and destroy the health and quality of life -- the quiet enjoyment expected by the residents, property owners, children, guests and visitors of the Philadelphus Community, including members of the community churches, which have deep-rooted cultural and historic value that demand respect and preservation within the surrounding Buie Philadelphus Community. Notably, the Philadelphus Presbyterian Church is listed on the NC Historic Registry and both Philadelphus and Panthorsford Church have been vital to their membership and the community.

We, the undersigned, urge Red Springs staff and officials, those elected and appointed, as well as their Robeson County counterparts, to protect, safeguard and preserve the Philadelphus Community and Buie Pond, and to ensure that the community and surrounding lands, waters, treelands, habitat, wildlife, wells, farmland and wetlands are protected from endangerments, hazards and threats to water, groundwater, noise, dust and air pollution that result from industrial use and mining and the fallout of industrial blight and disastrous environmental hazards.

Mining, conducted by wanton and responsible developers, industrialists, business, companies and corporations has devastated countrysides, crops, villages, towns and communities, destroyed forests and severely damaged and polluted valuable water resources. Wildlife and crops have been destroyed by mine slurry and sick quarry water and mined lands; forests and habitats have been reduced to desert, sick water, health risks and flies without heed or thought to the devastating consequences that mining unleashes on people, the environment and precious water resources.

We, the undersigned, are adamantly and vehemently opposed to industrial zoning, industrial use and mining and related construction, quarries and plants within the area known as Philadelphus, Red Springs and Buie Lake aka Buie Ponds Big and Small.
