A quick read of today’s local radio print news indicates that the 29 Palms Planning Commission is putting in an exhusting amount of time attempting to revise and modernize the town’s Development Code.
Indeed, they have a huge job ahead of them and they ought to be commended for their efforts and dedication.
One item under discussed during the Planning Commission meeting last night that caught my eye is this:
Should the rooftop mounting of swamp coolers and air conditioners be prohibited?
If Twentynine Palms were were Beverly Hills or another super luxury real estate community I think most folks would see the purpose, usefulness, and relevancy of restricting evaporation coolers and air conditioners from being mounted on rooftops homes and businesses.
However, given the fact that we are 100 miles away from civilization to the east, and 60 miles to the west away from big real estates markets — it is no doubt a silly thing to discuss at planning commission meetings.
Commissioners, 29 Palms is a remote and isolated rural village. Continue with your *common sense* approach to planning and code modifications as you have been doing since being seated as commissioners.
It’s illogical and a fool’s errand to waste time discussion prohibiting coolers and conditioners mounted on rooftops. You folks are much too smart for this nonsense.
The most efficient cooler is a top-down mounted cooler. It’s not the City of Rancho Palos Verdes.

According to the story filed by reporter Dan Stork, the consensus of the 29 Planning Commission “was to think about it some more.”
