December 2015

The current "Latest E-Blast" is chock-full of information about current issues of concern and what you can do, as well as a link to a summary of the successful bobcat trapping campaign and a highlight on local social media activist Lauren Ell.

We hope to see many MBCA supporters at the BLM's WEMO Transportation Plan meeting on Saturday, December 5 (see below for time and location).  Go to MBCA's Off-Highway Vehicle Resources page for more information and links about off-highway vehicle issues.  

ANNUAL MEETING ALERT!  Mark your calendar for Saturday, January 23, 2016 for MBCA's Annual Meeting.  Our speakers will focus on local generation of renewable energy.

The new website is looking good!

Hey that’s an idea – when the units don’t sell as homes the developers can repurpose the project as a prison! The good news that we heard at the MAC meeting last night is that the public comment period has been extended 30 days. More time for us to get the word out & let folks know how important it is to express opposition to County Planning. This project certainly warrants a CEQA report to avoid the great potential for unfortunate impacts to the landscape & community we love and work to protect!

Site looks great. Let’s beat back the Altamira Project, we don’t need something that looks like a Minimum Security Prison on paper.

Great to know you’re with us, Tom! Pat Flanagan gets many gold stars for the work she did researching Alta Mira. That should get a lot of folks in the Basin’s attention and hopefully plenty of response to County Planning demanding that housing project is rejected.
