COUNTY SUPERVISORS CONSIDER PIONEERTOWN WATER, LOCAL ROADS TOMORROW

Among the items under consideration at tomorrow’s County Supervisor meeting in San Bernardino are local roads and Pioneertown water. And if a local conservation group has anything to do with it, another item will be considered for a future agenda. Reporter Mike Lipsitz has details…
Consent agenda item 44 seeks a green light to call for bids to rehabilitate portions of Alta Loma Drive, Yucca Trail, Quail Springs Road, and Aberdeen Drive. Item 75 asks supervisors to call for bids for construction of a four-mile pipeline to bring potable water to Pioneertown. For residents there, the action will bring what has been a decade-long dream a step closer to reality. And finally, last week’s decision at the Department of Interior to undermine environmental protections established in the Desert Renewable Energy Conservation Plan has motivated a petition calling on supervisors to express to Washington their opposition to the move. Tomorrow, representatives from the Morongo Basin Conservation Association will call on the board via live video link from the County Government Center on White Feather Road in Joshua Tree. Among their concerns are the impacts of utility scale renewable energy projects on air quality, water resources, wildlife, economic development and public health.
