Phelan MAC Meeting Included Discussion Of Pinon Hills Housing Development By Tom Houts With Equestrian Park

Phelan MAC Meeting

(Best Syndication) Field Representative for County Supervisor Brad Mitzelfelt, John Richardson, was at the April 12th Municipal Advisory Council (MAC) meeting. Richardson said that preparations for the Community Service District (CSD) are on schedule. Richardson told the council that there should not be any eminent domain issues concerning the proposed 395 Freeway and the CSD.

Richardson handed out an inter-office memo dated April 11th from Jim Oravets of Special Districts which included information about tentative projects including a tract (18094) at Ranchero Road and Topaz Avenue with Baldy Mesa Road by Calico Homes. This project was 29 2.5 acre lots.

Another tentative tract (17874) is a Tom Houts project of 28 2.5 acre lots located east of Eaby Road, extending between Cygnet and Mesquite. Another Houts project (17875) includes 152 residential lots and a 20-acre equestrian park on 190 acres located at Goss Road, Silver Rock Road, Locust Road and Wintergreen Roads. Homes are expected to be built on 1 acre lots. This is actually in Pinon Hills (See Map Below), and the Phelan MAC will see what the Pinon Hills MAC decides to do concerning the development.

Jim Oravets told John Richardson that there are no annexation requests that should interfere with the formation of the local CSD. There will be an election in November concerning the proposed CSD. Richardson said that the county is interviewing for planning commissioner, but he was not sure when that decision would be made.

A question was raised about by Citizen Bruce Webster about a proposed Economic Development Agency for the high desert. There was chatter about the agency a year ago, but little was done. MAC representative, Ken Anderson, said that a lot of the projects were sidetracked because of things going on near George Air Force Base, but it is still in the works.

Richardson was asked to follow-up on the comment. The downtown Phelan area was supposed to be designated a redevelopment district. It was hoped that our incremental growth in sale tax would stay in the community and we could use it to reinvest in the community.

Bruce mentioned that there was supposed to be a task force to try to bring business to the high desert. Richardson told us that the task force tries to find ways to advertise the area, attract jobs and businesses. He said they “do many different things”, including bringing higher paying jobs to the community.
