No Rancho Palo Verde extension!
Investors in the long-dormant second phase of the Rancho Palo Verde housing development (RPV2) are working behind closed doors to obtain county approval for the project. This project poses grave threats to forest, stream, and river habitat rich with biodiversity and critical to local ecosystems and threatens to disrupt Alpine with damaging sprawl. “Changed circumstances” such as increased fire risk, new habitat conditions from prolonged drought, and changes in project design require a new Environmental Impact Report according to CEQA law. Urgent action is needed to stop this project from being approved without public notice.
The Cleveland National Forest Foundation is a nonprofit group dedicated to preserving the plants, animals and other natural resources of Southern California mountains by protecting the land and water they need to survive. Please join us in challenging this backdoor approach to planning so that we can preserve Alpine's precious habitat!
