Fresno Planning Commission Turns Down Jesse Morrow Mine

The Fresno Planning Commission has rejected a proposed gravel mine on Jesse Morrown Mountain, a scenic landmark 20 miles east of Fresno. The mine project by Cemex, the giant international building materials corporation, has been in the planning stages for more than a decade. It is opposed by a host of local citizen groups and Native Americans. Cemex vows to appeal to the Fresno Board of Supervisors. Vic Bedoian reports.
