After nearly a decade of fighting Lazer Broadcasting over their proposed radio tower project, we are almost at the finish line. 20,000 local residents have voiced their opposition to this tower and have demonstrated the importance of preserving the beauty of Wildwood Canyon State Park.
There are many reasons this project is bad for our community. Serious fire risks in the proposed location cannot be mitigated. The site for the tower sits upon Native American cultural landscape and is linked to
the Serrano Indians and their regional history – many Native American tribes including the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians and the Morongo Band of Mission Indians oppose the project.
Additionally,efforts to preserve Wildwood Canyon Park’s pristine vistas and native species would be obstructed. Our community is diverse and resides on beautiful land untainted by the urban expansion surrounding us.This is our last opportunity to save it.
I encourage anyone who can please attend the hearing on March 20, at 10 a.m. at the San Bernardino Government Center, 385 N. Arrowhead Avenue in San Bernardino.
We have been fighting for 10 years -let’s show them the undying dedication we have for Yucaipa’s rural community.
