Tejon Ranch development
May 28th, 2009, 8:13pm
 
Kern County released a Draft EIR. on the development known as Tejon Mountain Village. Talk of this project started over 4 years ago. It would consist of 3,450 residential units, 750 hotel units, four golf courses, and 160,000 square feet of commercial space on the Tejon Ranch. The project promises to leave 80% of the 26,417 acres as open space. The developers are Tejon Ranch Co. owners of the 270,000 acre ranch in the mountains between Los Angeles and Bakersfield. They call it part of their long-term vision of conservation, continued ranching and farming, and limited development. Opposition has called it exclusive resort-style sprawl development and and loss of critical habitat for wildlife including the endangered California Condor. Has this report adequately addressed all issues? In 2005 the Center for Biological Diversity said: "Given the exceptional ecological significance of the project site, the proposed project presents intractable environmental difficulties that, in the Centerís view, cannot be remedied in the environmental review process."

And here I thought this died along with the hedge funds as part of the recession. It just goes to show you how valuable this piece of  California is.  We all know doing nothing is the best thing but somehow I don't think that is what is feasable. The Devil is laughing again!       LEW

Update: Development Condemmed by Experts!

The Center for Biological Diversity's Condor experts have, in a report posted July 8, 2009, stated the proposed Tejon Ranch development is a danger to the California Condor, a bird on the brink of extinction, and "called for the rejection of Tejonís request for a permit to harm critically endangered condors."
 
Here is the whole report:
