Pinon Hills Elementary School

(Best Syndication) Teachers heard gunshots at the Pinon Hills Elementary School prompting the administration to call all students into their classes and the cafeteria. Some of the students were outside playing while others were already in class when the “lock-down’ occurred. All of the students had to remain indoors until police deemed it safe to exit.

The shots came from the southwest direction, but school officials were not certain how far away the gunman was. The gunshots were heard around 2:05pm. One of the instructors, Mr. Thatcher, said that there were 2 police helicopters in the air, 2 or 3 school police, and 4 sheriffs on scene.

(Best Syndication) This is the third installment in our coverage of the Pinon Hills MAC meeting concerning the Hout development off Silver Rock and Goss Roads in Pinon Hills. At the May 3rd meeting the representative of County Supervisor Brad Mitzelfelt, Michael Orme, said that the developer would have already started building homes at the 78-lot development, had it not been for residents asking for an equestrian park.

After that request, the developer proposed a plan for 152 homes on smaller lots in exchange for an equestrian or sports park. Although this development would give the county more money for roads and parks, it is opposed by some in the local community. Orme also mentioned the developer would absorb the extra cost for removal of the Joshua trees.

(Best Syndication) The first part of the May 3rd Pinon Hills MAC Meeting dealt with road construction. Assistant to County Supervisor Brad Mitzelfelt, Michael Orme answered questions and presented both proposed developments. Orme told the audience that the developer had originally wanted to build on 2.5 acre lots but was approached by residents interested in a park.

The developer, Houts, agreed to an alternate plan, but asked for a variance on lot size. The original plans called for 78 homes on two and a half acre lots, but the new arrangement, which included nearly 20 acres of park land, would consist of 152 homes on smaller lots.

Maybe you are buying your first home in California, or perhaps you’re relocating to California from another state. Either way, it’s important that you educate yourself on California home loans before shopping for a home and mortgage. This article explains what you will need to know before buying a home in California:

The median price of a home in California is $211,500. Recently, homes in California have been appreciating at rates well above the national average. As a result, income levels in many parts of California are too low to purchase a median-priced home with a conventional loan. Although average interest rates in California are below the national average, California has one of the lowest levels of home affordability in the nation.

There were other speakers, including Tim A Wessel of the San Bernardino County Fire Department, and Dennis Green of Caltrans, but nearly everyone at the meeting wanted to talk about the proposed Houts development near Pinon Hills Elementary School.

According to MAC member Don Slater, the development was originally slated for 78 homes on two and a half acre lots. Evidently there were people in the community who wanted some land devoted to an equestrian or sports park. In exchange for smaller one acre lots, the developer offered to set aside land for the park.
