You are correct in the image by why vote against it before any sound testing was done? That's just silly. The tests were meant to discern between trucks/jeeps & bikes to determine if any or all of a segment was louder than the current mining operation. Having a park that doesn't change the current tranquility of the woods & fields and you can't hear anything in there versus a housing project that adds 1000 homes & thousands of extra cars/ bikes/ hot rods, construction & landscape equipment is an indication of simple mindedness.
