The County’s Planning Commission has confirmed that the hearing on “Joshua Tree Retail Project” (aka DOLLAR GENERAL) will be held on Thursday, January 17, 2013 at 9am at County offices in the city of San Bernardino.
Please consider attending this hearing as a community member opposed to this proposal. We have all the relevant testimony prepared. What we need most is to have people in the room on our side. You do not have to testify. You just have to be present.
To prepare for this hearing, we opponents to Dollar General in Joshua Tree will be holding a meeting Saturday, January 12, 2013 from 10am to 12 noon at:
Hospice of Morongo Basin – Meeting Room
61675 Twentynine Palms Hwy
The meeting room/office area is accessed from an interior door inside the store. That door is near the cashier counter.
At this meeting, we will be organizing carpools to and from the Jan. 17 hearing in San Bernardino, as well as organizing our testimony and presentation strategy.
Community members who have been active to date in opposing Dollar General’s proposal will be present to facilitate the meeting. Everyone is welcome.
If you can only be present for part of this meeting, that is fine. Just show up when you can, and stay as long as you wish.
