Paradise Valley to be heard by Riverside County Board of Supervisors

Workshop Teaches New Skills to Empower Community To Defend The California Desert: Part Two. 

Paradise Valley to be heard by Riverside County Board of Supervisors
It appears that the fate of this long-considered and grossly inappropriate development will finally be determined at a public hearing by the Riverside County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday November 5 in Riverside. The Riverside County Planning Commission has recommended DENIAL of Specific Plan No. 339 that would allow the development of a new city of 1,848 acres with 20,000 residents and 1,380,000 square feet of commercial development directly on the southern border of Joshua Tree National Park. MBCA encourages our members to write to Riverside County and to attend this hearing in person to encourage the Supervisors to DENY approval of this project. Those wishing to carpool to the hearing in Riverside should contact me and I will endeavor to coordinate and offer transportation.

WHEN:  Tuesday, November 5, 2019, 10:00 am
WHERE: 1st Floor Board Chambers
             County Administrative Center

Workshop Teaches New Skills to Empower Community To Defend The California Desert: Part Two
MBCA is pleased to be partnering with the California Desert Coalition, in organizing this workshop to focus on the role the California Environmental Policy Act (CEQA) plays in guiding development throughout the State. This is part II of a series that began with understanding the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). Also supported by the Center for Biological Diversity, Mojave Desert Land Trust, The National Parks Conservation Association, the Conservation Lands Foundation, and faculty from the University of Redlands, this workshop will inform participants on CEQA: how it  works and how to analyze a development and to craft substantive comments that must be considered by decision makers.

WHEN:  SATURDAY November 2, 2019, 9:30 am - 3:30 pm
WHERE:  THE YUCCA ROOM
TOWN OF YUCCA VALLEY COMMUNITY CENTER
57090 Twentynine Palms Hwy Yucca Valley, CA 92284

Lunch will be served, and while the workshop is free, a donation of $10.00 is suggested. Please rsvp to Claudia Sall as soon as possible: sallwildlands@gmail.com

Looking forward to seeing you as MBCA continues to advocate for the healthy desert!
