The Riverside Board of Supervisors will take public comment on the Lewis Homes Villages of Lakeview Project, which is directly on the border of San Jacinto Wildlife Area. The Supervisors will then vote on the project approval at their meeting on Tuesday, November 14th at 1:30 pm the same location as the prior Planning Commission Meetings, 4080 Lemon Street, 1st Floor, Riverside, CA 92502.

The County Supervisors will be making the final decision on the project and the fate of the San Jacinto Wildlife Area’s (and the hunting program’s) future. This is the very last chance to do something about this project. They will, in effect, be creating a 25,000-population city right on the border of San Jacinto, along with a large commercial development also, which can only have detrimental effects on the Wildlife Area, the wildlife within it and the hunting program. Once again, as with the Planning Commission hearings, PLEASE tell everyone you know this is very important! We need to show up IN NUMBERS for the Supervisors’ meeting!
As I reported before, there are T-shirts available to show your support for SJWA. At this point, they can be purchased at Lilian Greenland’s Salon at 426 West Esplanade Ave., Suite 201, San Jacinto, CA 92583. It would be nice to see a sea of Green SJ shirts at the Supervisor’s meeting.
This is likely the final chance to stop this project and to save San Jacinto’s hunting program. You may not think it will be that big a deal but believe me, it is. Even as slow as hunting is right now in the early weeks of the season 108 hunters were able to take last Wednesday off to hunt at San Jacinto. We should be able to get this many at least to attend a meeting that may determine if you can hunt there in the future.
So, if there’s any way you can make it to the Riverside Board of Supervisors meeting on November 14th, BE THERE! As I’ve already said before the future of San Jacinto Wildlife Area, and most certainly the hunting program there, depends on it.
