Sat Feb 4 10am: a Community Meeting to discuss formation of a National Conservation and Historic Reserve for Joshua Tree

Via the essential JT Barnstormer:

On 10am on February 4, 2012, a Community Meeting will be held at the Joshua Tree & Southern Railroad Museum to discuss the formation of a National Conservation and Historic Reserve, or “Joshua Tree NCHR.”

…A National Conservation and Historic Reserve (NHR) is a type of conservation overlay that establishes planning control and design guidelines within its district without interfering with other types of governance (i.e., CSDs, county, state, federal).

…Early discussions about the feasibility of forming a Joshua Tree NCHR, which began last November/December, have included officials from Joshua Tree National Park (JTNP), the National Park Conservation Association (NPCA), Morongo Basin Conservation Association (MBCA), Joshua Tree Community Association (JTCA), and the Joshua Tree Municipal Advisory Committee (JTMAC) and Joshua Tree resident and self-proclaimed “desert hugger,” Tom O’Key, under guidance from and consultation with the Supervising Administrator for three national reserves (of the five that exist in the US) and administrators from Ebey’s Landing NHR.
