Forest Conservation Initiative (FCI)

READER'S EDITORIAL: A BEHIND-THE-SCENES LAND GRAB?

 

By Steve Green

“…professed “FCI supporters”  are not disclosing their current goals - regulations even more restrictive than the 1993 FCI, taking even more of our property rights.”—Steve Green 

July 6, 2014 (San Diego’s East County)--I am a property owner surrounded by the Cleveland National Forest on Boulder Creek Road. My land represents the majority portion of my personal financial holdings. Up until 1993,  county regulations allowed property owners in my area to divide their lands into 20 acre parcels. We lost this ability in 1993 when voters approved the Forest Conservation Initiative (FCI).
