Over the course of this year, the City has been working with the community to identify the vision for the undeveloped land in the northeastern area of the City. The southerly 1,200 acres of this land is surplus land owned by the County of San Bernardino Flood Control that the County plans to sell. During the last six months, the community articulated a strong and consistent message that local control is very important. In addition, we have learned that other top community priorities include, economic feasibility, no new tax burdens, and conservation of foothill open space.
After exploring these priorities and methods of exercising local control, the community expressed support for a combination of open space and limited neighborhoods in order to avoid new development under County standards and/or new taxes to purchase the land for conservation.
Based on the community's expressed interest in exercising local control over these 4,000-plus acres, the City is now working with the community to identify a preferred scenario for neighborhoods and open space. By annexing the Plan Area, community members like you can help the City plan the future of this area.
Your input will help to define a mixture of housing types, neighborhood amenities, and conservation areas that support community priorities.
Please lend your voice to this process and tell us what characteristics, amenities, and activities might make you want to move to one of the new neighborhoods. CLICK HERE to participate.
