Thanks to the members of the Palomar Mutual Water Board for their
financial contributions to the PMPO.
Cedar Creek Water Development:
Libby Getzoff summarized an
update from county groundwater geologist John Peterson. Judge Yale has
hired a new hydrology consultant, Doug Roff of Barrett Consulting
Group, who has submitted a revised report on his well tests to be
reviewed by the County. Judge Yale has still not yet filed an
application for a major use permit. Issues of water rights law were
discussed. John Tainer will call Tom Burton to get his advice on the
legal issues. The PMPO approved the allocation of $1000 to pay for
additional advice, if needed, from Brian Mooney & Associates concerning
this water project.
Mendenhall Ranch Water Project:
John Moriarty reported
that the Mendenhall Ranch water project has ended, although the
Mendenhalls maintain the right to pump water for their own use. George
Ravenscroft reported, however, that SAMDA is still working with the
Indians, who are spending $40,000 to study the feasibility of water
development and are bulldozing roads straight up the side of the
mountain from the water park.
Relay Engineering Major Use Permit:
Bruce Graves received
a letter dated 17 March 1995 from Don Ramer, which reiterated the
positions of Relay engineering and thanked us for allowing them to
address the PMPO on February 18, 1995. It was agreed that the PMPO
does not see a reason to override the guidelines set up by the existing
telecommunications ordinance. Bruce will get a copy of the original
ordinance regarding antennae farms, and Libby Getzoff will draft a
follow-up letter from the PMPO to Max Stalheim and Richard Herrmann at
the County of San Diego Department of Planning and Land Use.
Vacancies on the PMPO Board:
We will have two vacancies on
the PMPO Board: Bill Meyer has resigned due to moving, and Russ
Litchfield does not wish to run for re-election. Three incombents are
running for re-election: Bruce Graves, Russ Day, and Tom Burton. Russ
Day will run the election at the annual meeting.
1995 News Letter:
Bill Meyer plans to include the
termination of the Mendenhall water project in the newsletter, and John
Moriarity will approach Dave Mendenhall for his comments. The
newsletter will emphasize positive events on the front page.
