The Alta Mira Gated Community proposed for 105 acres Joshua Tree is attempting a come-back. This ill-conceived development is not appropriate given its scale and density, especially since it would wrap around two sides of the Friendly Hills Elementary School. Traffic is one of several impacts of concern. This development will be discussed at the MAC (Municipal Advisory Committee) meeting on Monday, September 8th : JT Community Center, 6171 Sunburst Ave, Joshua Tree.
Thanks to those who attended the September MAC meeting to share your concerns!
