Royal Rangers Land

Thursday, March 10, 2011

The article about the Royal Rangers selling their land was welcome news..

Congratulations to the Royal Rangers for making the right decision to sell the 50-acre Twin Peaks site to the local land trust. Its too bad it took so long.

Three cheers to the San Bernardino Mountains Land Trust for stepping in to buy the land. Our county greatly benefits from having such an excellent conservation organization like this, which deserves to be supported by everyone who enjoys our local mountains.

Bravo to the mountain environmental groups who understand the forest so well and know the county policies,which are designed to protect it, better than anyone in the county planning department.

Thumbs down for the board of supervisors, who need to pay more attention to the local citizens and to critical issues like public safety and responsible forest policies instead of their own political agendas.

The supervisors did the Royal Rangers a disservice in 2006 by not dismissing the project, after the Land Use Service Department and the Planning Commission concluded it was too big ,too unsafe and too detrimental for the forest on such a steep and ecologically sensitive site.

Thanks to all the citizens who got involved. All's well that ends well.
