Re: Recommendations for enhancing access to and transparency of Land Use Services
application review process for Renewable Energy Generation Facilities
Dear Mr. Hudson:
Rising interest in desert lands from large-scale solar energy developers has stimulated public opposition when their plans neglect community interests. A consequence has been greater public focus on Land Use Service’s application and review process. Many have been frustrated in their efforts to navigate the system and monitor progress. With that in mind, the office of third district Supervisor James Ramos last month tasked the Morongo Basin Municipal Advisory Council with recommending ways to improve the interface between Land Use Services and the communities most impacted by its actions.
