Investors in the “Bell Bluff” extension of the long-dormant second phase of the Rancho Palo Verde housing development (RPV2) are closing in on county approval for the project via a closed internal process to build 150 houses in a very high fire hazard severity zone. This project poses grave threats to forest, stream, and river habitat rich with biodiversity and critical to local ecosystems and threatens to disrupt Alpine with damaging sprawl. “Changed circumstances” such as fire risk, new habitat conditions from prolonged drought, and changes in project design require a new Environmental Impact Report according to CEQA law. Urgent action is needed to stop this project from being approved without public notice.
