    MBCA Requests County Retain Community Plans

    Since the process began over 5 years ago, MBCA has closely followed San Bernardino County's efforts to develop a Countywide Plan. The resulting plan is scheduled for adoption at the Supervisors' October 27th meeting and includes the repeal of the 2007 Community Plans. MBCA maintains that the existing Community Plans are necessary for unincorporated communities to have a say in future development. MBCA's comprehensive letter sent to the County's Land Use Services staff and Supervisors on October 23rd addresses the background and rationale of this argument.  The letter concludes:

    Communities want and need the specificity of the Community Plans to ensure the health and safety of their communities.  These plans already exist, are currently adopted into code, and housed in the Development Code that is not part of the vote on October 27th. Keeping these Community Plans ensures that the integrity and character of these communities is respected and maintained.
    We respectfully ask that you do not repeal the 2007 Community Plans and initiate community-led updates of the Plans, that can then be incorporated into the forthcoming Development Code update.

    Again here is the entire letter.

    Stagecoach Solar Project Public Comment Opportunity, 1 of 2

    Stagecoach Solar is a proposed project in the Lucerne Valley area that would not only harm rural desert life for local residents, but could trigger an expansion of solar development that should be sited elsewhere. This is the first of two Public Scoping Meetings at which you can comment online to express concerns about the Project. (The second is later today at 6 PM.) Read this email that outlines the situation and directs you to more detailed preparation for your comments.
