The Boulevard Planning Group meets Thursday night at 7 p.m. in the Boulevard Fire Training Room, 39919 Ribbon Wood Road in Boulevard.  The rural planners will be discussing some hot issues, starting with disclosure of a lawsuit filed against the Planning Group, its Chair, the County and other parties over alleged loss of property values to Lansing Industries, which has been unsuccessful in its effort to develop its property as first a housing development and later, an industrial solar facility, amid large-scale community opposition.

Chair Donna Tisdale and two other incumbents won reelection to the Boulevard Planning Group unopposed.

In other legal actions, meeting attendees will hear details on an appeal filed over the County’s wind ordinance and general plan amendment and an appeal filed over the Bureau of Land Management’s approval of Iberdrola’s Tule Wind project.

Other items on the agenda include an update on Soitec projects, the ECO Substation, and Sempra’s cross-border transmission project.  A possible  hearing on Tule Wind with the State Lands Commission in October, and projects at Rough Acres Ranch in McCain Valley are also set for discussion.

In addition, Iberdrola’s application for an eagle take permit is on the agenda.
