Feb 6, 2013   //   by CSGadmin   //   News & Updates  //  No Comments
  • Conejo Creek development EIR HEARING POSTPONED until Spring

 

  •  NEW HIGH SCHOOL community hearings re: alternative sites Thursday, February 7th

 

  • CAMROSA WATER DISTRICT RATE INCREASE presentation

 

First,  the Conejo Creek EIR Hearing scheduled for Feb. 19th has been postponed. The response to the over 500 comments received by the City will now be presented in March or April.  We will keep you posted.

Secondly, this link Camarillo Acorn – Alternative Sites will update you on the latest alternative sites for the New High School being considered.   The following meetings are scheduled for reviewing and taking public comment on the alternative sites for the new high school:

~ Thursday, February 7th at 6:30pm in the ACHS library – 4660 Mission Oaks Blvd.

~ Wednesday, February 27th the Oxnard High School District Board will take public comments and accept or reject the alternative school site analysis.

We certainly hope that you will be able to attend one or both of these important meetings.

NEW BUSINESS

In addition, the Camrosa Water District (covering Santa Rosa Valley, Mission Oaks, Leisure Village, Camarillo Springs among others) will be holding a proposed rate increase informational meeting:

~ Tuesday, February 19th at Tierra Linda School.

Camrosa is the water district for the proposed Conejo Creek development.  How would an additional 2,500 homes and 1.3 million square feet of industrial development impact future rates?   Would this increase the amount of water we import, or pump from our local aquifers, to supply this development?

And last but certainly not least, this link  Camarillo Acorn –  Council says no to land-use changes  reports on the Camarillo City Council’s vote on the annual consideration of new General Plan Amendments (which allows new development projects to continue on “for study” or not).

 

The two parcels being considered were smaller infill projects.  Both of these were denied.  The reasons were proximity to the 101 freeway, adjacent industrial development and other projects already in the planning process. All reasons that would also apply to the proposed Conejo Creek development.

 

So our community’s empty lots sit waiting for infill development, while a 2,500 unit development, next to the 101 Freeway, surrounding a large industrial area is being considered, and the 1,350 unit Springville development has yet to be built.
