SOUTHSIDE PARK MOVES THROUGH YUCCA VALLEY

The Southside Community Center in Yucca Valley got closer to reality after a public hearing at the Yucca Valley Planning Commission last night. Managing Editor Tami Roleff was there and files this report…
The Yucca Valley Planning Commission held a public hearing last night for the proposed South Side Community Park, a 37.5-acre park which will be located on the northwest corner of Warren Vista and Joshua Lane. The first stage of the park will be about 5 acres, and will include a 1 ½ acre dog park, a 2-acre playground, turf area, and hardscape, 29 parking places, and paths and walkways. As part of the project, Warren Vista will be widened, and curbs and gutters will be added. The commissioners were informed that signs of desert tortoises were found on the northern edge of the proposed park. Slightly less than $300,000 will be spent on the first stage of the park. The rest of the $1.2 million cost will go mainly toward street improvements. The Town has just under $1.1 million in federal funds that must be used for the construction of the South Side Park and can’t be used for anything else. The Planning Commission unanimously approved the environmental assessment and the conditional use permit.
