Citizen’s Quotes


“It is a pristine desert and should retain the natural beauty of the terrain.”

“We sure do need more open space.”

“I want to keep Castner Range as it is. I love nothing more than to see all of the beautiful nature in that area–the mountains, the land as it is with its natural beauty of cacti and other desert plants.”

“Please NO to any further development!”

“Castner Range should be kept as open natural space (no development). There is plenty of land available for development in the area whether it be Texas or New Mexico. Castner Range is a unique area; only if it’s left as open space will it truly be appreciated a hundred years from now. “

“I would like to express my wish and hope that Castner Range will be preserved with its natural beauty intact. I have hiked many times in the area and enjoyed the quiet and undisturbed environment. It is a nice place to take refuge from the daily stress from our ever-growing city. It is also a place where one can still breathe some oxygen for recreational purposes – hiking, biking, etc.”

“I strongly opposed to the development of Castner Range for any residential or commercial use.”

“I would like to see Castner Range left as unused, natural open space. We have too little of that.”

“We have some beautiful mountains here.”

“I have been hiking in the Franklins since I was a teenager (I am now 58 years old), primarily in the more pristine areas where entry is forbidden due to unexploded ordnance. It is about time we move collectively to gain back the use of these amazing mountains.”

“I think it is important that Castner Range remain fully protected outdoor space.”

“The beauty of our city lies in the beauty of our rugged mountains and all they hold and represent.”

“I strongly advocate total conservation and preservation of “one of the most significant landscapes in the United States”
