Public Comment

The Chairperson announced the public comment period and there was no one from the public wishing to speak.


Planning Dept./ Land Releases in Lone Pine per Water Agreement

Ms. Andrea Clark, Resource Management Coordinator, reviewed the Staff Report and recommendations regarding the Los Angeles-owned parcels that have been selected for release by the Lone Pine Land and Water Advisory Committee. Ms. Clark amended the total number of acres reflected in the Staff Report for Category II from 13.2 to 13.5 acres.  Mr. Gene Mathern, of Lone Pine, requested the Board consider having the County purchase the land and then release it for public sale, explaining that he had development plans for one of the areas identified.   Ms. Jaque Hickman, Lone Pine Resident, asked that the Board include two parcels of land which at the time of the Land and Water Advisory Committee’s recommendations were being leased and are now available.  She identified the parcels as (1) the old Amerigas location and (2) the old Frosty Freeze location.  Ms. Hickman explained that the buildings on those sites are considered abandoned and the release of the lands would enhance those parcels currently identified for release.  The Board, Staff and members of the audience continued to discuss the Staff recommendations.

Moved by Supervisor Bear and seconded by Supervisor Hambleton to approve the parcels recommended by the Lone Pine Land and Water Advisory Committee that are identified in Attachment A, Category I and include those parcels identified by Ms. Hickman, and direct staff to move forward in conferring with LADWP on the release of the parcels, recognizing that it is possible that this process may not occur until after the 75-acre release has been identified.  Motion carried unanimously.

Moved by Supervisor Arcularius and seconded by Supervisor Williams to approve the parcel recommended by the Lone Pine Land and Water Advisory Committee that is identified in Attachment A, Category II, amended to reflect 13.5 total acres, and direct staff to move forward in conferring with the LADWP regarding the release of these parcels and proceed with any necessary CEQA processes.  Motion carried unanimously. 



The Chairperson recessed the special meeting at 7:00 p.m.
