This proposal for lands reconveyance has just appeared on the major public screen. We need more information to either approve, disapprove, or modify such a proposal.

Just for starters, here are some reasonable questions we would ask about ANY such proposal:
  • We need more info on the "plan"?
  • Who sat on the "planning committee"?
  • What activities will be permitted on these lands?
  • How will non-permitted activities be made to not happen?
  • How will the deal assure "permanence" of the protection?
  • What is the land-ownerships immediately surrounding these properties?
  • What will be the access-roads situation?
  • Will the access-roads promote/facilitate new public activities ("urbanization")?
  • Whose private properties benefit by this change?
  • How do use of those other properties affect the water in the LWW?
  • What part of the control of uses is in the administrative purview of the County?
  • What part of the control of uses is in the administrative purview of the County Parks Dept?
And.more questions will follow......
