SEVERAL ITEMS AFFECTING MORONGO BASIN ON TOMORROW’S SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY BOARD OF SUPERVISORS AGENDA

At tomorrow’s regular 10 a.m. meeting of county supervisors in San Bernardino, the board will consider several items relevant to our Morongo Basin. Reporter Mike Lipsitz tells us what is on the agenda…

Supervisors are expected affirm an updated contract with the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development, stipulating that only those cities, including Yucca Valley and Twentynine Palms, that comply with Fair Housing Rules will be eligible for HUD funds.

In what is all but certain to be the final nail in the coffin of the proposed Joshua Tree Solar Farm at the former site of the Joshua Tree Airport, supervisors will rescind all related approvals for the project which became mired in court challenges.

And at an end-of-meeting public hearing, supervisors will consider a handful of updates and clarifications to the County Development Code sections on recreational cabins, camping, landscaping, signs, community gardens, and short-term rentals.

And finally, the board will approve the appointment of Kevin Cole to the Twentynine Palms Cemetery District Board.

COUNTY SUPERVISORS MOVE MORONGO BASIN BUSINESS FORWARD YESTERDAY

Yesterday in San Bernardino, county supervisors moved forward several items specific to our Morongo Basin and voted to send a proposed new county charter to voters in the November 3 election. Reporter Mike Lipsitz is here with details…

Supervisors will look to county voters to approve the ballot measure entitled, “The San Bernardino County Supervisor Compensation Reduction and Term Limits Initiative.” In the coming days, Z107.7 News will review each element of the proposed new County Charter in detail.

In other business, the board declared a vacancy on the Twentynine Palms Cemetery District for the remaining four-year term of Robert Stump expiring January 2024. Stump began his term just six months ago.

Supervisors also extended for five years a $3.7 million lease agreement for 25,000 square feet of office space on Pima Trail in Yucca Valley for the county’s Transitional Assistance Department and the Department of Aging and Adult Services to provide their services in our Morongo Basin.
