Okay Yucaipans, it’s time to get involved and continue the fight to preserve our Yucaipa treasures, starting with the on going fight in Wildwood Canyon. It’s David vs. Goliath, and we are not Goliath!
Just in case you thought that Lazer had changed their business plans to build their radio tower adjacent to Wildwood Canyon State Park … think again.
They are proceeding full speed ahead with an active project plan and they will build their project unless you, as concerned citizens, act by letting your voices be heard.
As you may remember, on Dec. 17, 2013, Judge Alvarez ordered the San Bernardino County Land Use Services Department to prepare an Environmental Impact Report (“EIR”) for the Lazer Radio Tower Project.
On Friday, June 3, we learned that the draft EIR is complete and as of today, is available on the county’s website and physical copies are available for public review in the Land Use Services department and the Yucaipa Branch Library.
Here is the link to the Draft EIR: http://www.sbcounty.gov/Uploads/lus/Environmental/LazerBroadcasting/LazerEIR.pdf
And, here is the link to the county’s page where you can access the report as well as all the backup documents: http:// cms.sbcounty.gov/lus/Planning/Environmental/Mountain.aspx
Following the release of the Draft EIR, there will be a 45-day comment period in which any party can make comments to the DRAFT EIR; the 45-day comment period will expire on July 21, 2016.
CPRL plans to make extensive comments. We are contacting you with this information looking for additional parties to review the Draft EIR and submit their written comments to the project manager, Kevin White, no later than July 21, 2016.
The Draft EIR will provide instructions on where to send your comments.
