GREAT NEWS ON STOPPING PROPOSED “ALTA MIRA” GATED COMMUNITY IN JOSHUA TREE

From 107.7 news:

May 21: The Joshua Basin Water District voted to delay issuing a will-serve letter for the 248-unit Alta Mira residential development while emergency water regulations are in effect.

This is great news. The Alta Mira developers have been angling for a “will serve” letter from the JBWD for some time now. They will have difficulty moving their harmful, inappropriate project forward until they have one…and they might not get one for a while because of the ongoing drought emergency that California is experiencing.
