Roff has been monitoring well level and usage and, with George
Ravenscroft's help, the stream flow in Cedar Creek.
Visit by County Supervisor Horne:
Through Brian Mooney, Tom
Burton has been arranging for a visit by County Supervisor Horne to
meet with the PMPO, probably in mid-march. Mr. Horne wants to meet
with the PMPO, but not for an issue-specific meeting. We will plan to
include a tour of the Observatory, water sites, antenna sites, and
major residential areas.
Relay Engineering Major Use Permit:
Bruce Graves reported
that Relay Engineering is continuing to pursue their tower extension
proposal. They have visited the Pauma Valley Sponsor Group, who will
make an official recommendation to the County. Bruce attends meetings
of the Pauma Valley Sponsor Group.
Implementation of the Forest Conservation Initiative:
McLees suggested that we look into the implementation of the
voter-approved Forest Conservation Initiative by the Department of
Planning and Land Use. Tom Burton will look this over.
Five 3-year positions on the 15-member PMPO
Board will be open for election at the annual meeting, scheduled for

following members of the Board will be expiring: Robert Thicksten,
Robert Carlyle, Halcie Clark, John Moriarity (and Nancy Moriarity), and

election. The agenda for the last Annual Meeting included
presentations on the State Park, the US Forest Service, the Fire
Department, the Palomar Observatory, Cedar Creek, and the Crestline
antenna towers. Russ Day will talk to Susan at the State Park, to see
if they are interested in a presentation this year.
Different plans for the pancake breakfast
scheduled immediately prior to the Annual Meeting were discussed, and
the decision was made to accept Rick Healy's offer to volunteer the
facilities at the Lodge. Terri Bailey, Donna Dose, and Susan Humason
volunteered to organize the pancake breakfast, with help from Carol
Ravenscroft, if she agrees.
