Fighting for the air we breathe

The Interior Ministry’s Planning and Construction Committee submitted plans for the Mitzpe Neftoah project, and residents and organizations can submit their opposition to the committee. Although nothing is being done until the procedure is completed, several things are being done in the fight against it. On Monday, Deputy Mayor Tamir Nir (Yerushalmim) spearheaded an emergency debate at the municipality to come up with ways to prevent its implementation. Participants included representatives of KKL/JNF, the Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel, Megama Yeruka, youth movements and residents of Ramot directly affected by the project. They tried to come up with a plan to prevent the final approval that would destroy one of the city’s major green lungs.
