Stop zombie development in Riverside County

Action: Wildlife Conservation

October 26, 2016   Action Alert ID# 442

 

In 2012 the Center and allies stopped a mega-development from being built right next to the San Jacinto Wildlife Area. But like a zombie, the project has returned from the dead: Riverside County is moving forward with an almost identical real-estate development in the same location.

The Villages of Lakeview project, composed of up to 11,350 dwelling units and about 1.4 million square feet of commercial development, would be even more damaging than its vanquished predecessor. It would destroy an additional 94 acres of wildlife habitat adjacent to the San Jacinto Wildlife Area and the San Jacinto River floodplain, paving over habitat for raptors like white-tailed kites and imperiled birds like burrowing owls. With some of the highest-density housing planned right beside the refuge, the project would set up conflicts between people and wildlife. By building housing far from jobs and public transportation, it would lead to unprecedented increases in traffic and air pollution.

Building a sprawling city far from existing infrastructure is outdated thinking that has no place in this time of climate change. This project will not only harm wildlife and quality of life, but put California's climate change goals further out of reach. We have to stop it.

Tell the Riverside County Planning Department to shelve this bad project for good.
