SKYPARK AT SANTA’S VILLAGE TO OPEN!

SkyPark   at   Santa’s   Village has       been       issued       a Temporary      Use      Permit (TUP)    by    the    County    of San    Bernardino    that    will allow    the    park    to    open December         2,         2016. County    documents    allow for     anyone     to     file     an appeal   to   the   Planning   Commission   prior   to   the   opening   date.   Also, approval    is    subject    to    final    inspection    approvals    from    county    fire, building    and    safety,    planning    and    solid    waste.    The    TUP    runs    until April 1, 2018, and can be extended upon request. The   permit   allows   the   re-opening   of   the   original   18 Santa’s   Village structures,   but   not   the   larger   vision   of   outdoor-oriented   activities   that will    turn    the    park    into    a    year-around    destination    for    locals    and tourists.      The   park   will   operate   from   9:00 a.m.   until   10 p.m.   seven   days a    week.    Santa’s    Village    features    a    log    cabin    community    with    two restaurants and a pub. The     county     temporary     permit     restricts     all     parking     to     the approximately    300 spaces    adjacent    to    the    amusement    attractions, while   excluding   for   now   SkyPark’s   300   space   parking   area   south   of Highway 18.   The   TUP   halts   the   use   of   trails   outside   the   “amusement zone” of the original 72 acres of Santa’s Village. SkyPark’s    management    plans    include    the    use    of    153 acres    of property   including   a   fly-fishing   stream   and   pond   along   with   mountain biking, hiking trails and archery. SkyPark   at   Santa’s   Village   construction   crews   have   been   non-stop to   open   the   1955-era   park   by   Thanksgiving   weekend.   A   great   deal   of thanks   goes   to   Project   Manager,   Bill   Johnson   for   bringing   this   project to where it is today.  Santa’s Village has been closed for 18 years.

LACSD:  IRRIGATION SEASON IS NOW OVER!

The       Lake       Arrowhead       Community Services    District    (our    water    company) reminds    us    that    irrigation    season    is now   over.      If   you   have   been   running your    irrigation    system    this    year,    the last    day    of    the    irrigation    season    was October   14,   2016.   Please   turn   off   your automatic    timers    and    begin    making plans    to    protect    your    system    for    the winter. Irrigation season will start again in the beginning of May 2017. If   you   are   a   part-time   home   owner   or   are   planning   to   be   gone during   the   colder   months,   remember   to   winterize   your   home   when you are not occupying the property. Here are some tips to remember; 1)   Leaving   your   heater   on   to   prevent   frozen   pipes   might   be   a good    secondary    measure    but    shutting    the    water    off    is    the    best practice. 2)   Just   because   your   pipes   didn’t   freeze   last   year,   you   are   not exempt this year. Keep in mind your pipes are now one year older. 3)   Don’t   forget   to   protect   your   hose   bibs.   These   can   freeze   and crack causing large water loss. 4)   Download   Dropcountr.com   and   manage   your   water   use   from the comfort of your home, office or while on vacation. 

LANDSLIDE VICTORY IN ALA ELECTION

At         the         Arrowhead         Lake Association        Board        of        Directors election      ballot      count      on      Friday morning,         September         23,         ALA members'    voices    were    heard    as    the Inspector    of    Elections    from    Accurate Voting   Inc.,   read   the   results.      It   was   a landslide    victory    for    both    Candidates who   campaigned   for   increased   fiscal   responsibility   and   transparency from August 1 through September 22, 2016.  Jack    Tingley    decisively    won    the    At    Large    “A” seat   receiving   776   votes ,   Bob   Donaldson   received 380   votes   and   Gene   Jennings   rounded   out   with   360 votes.     Combining     both     opponents     totals     still wouldn't   have   been   enough   to   over-take   Tingley's overwhelming 51% victory. In   the   West   District,   Board   member   Brian   Hall chose   to   run   in   this   district   rather   than   in   his   incum bent   seat   At   Large “A,”    in    order    to    challenge    Jane    St.    John,    an incumbent    in    the    West    for    6    years.        Neither candidates   have   ever   won   a   contested   election   in this   District.      Hall   received   a   whopping    271   votes   or   75%   of   the   of   the   total,   compared   to   St.   John's 90   votes   total   or   25%   of   the   vote,   giving   Hall   a   3 to    1    victory    over    St.    John.        The    ALA    Election Committee    initially    didn't    recognize    Hall    as    a qualified    Candidate    in    the    West,    but    ultimately    Hall    was    declared qualified,   and   in   doing   so   initiated   a   contested   election   against   St. John.        Had    Hall    not    been    able    to    run    in    the    West    District    as    a Candidate,   St.   John   would   have   won   by   acclimation   as   she   had   done   in t he last 2 West District elections over the past 6 years.

In   attendance   was   Lori’s   son   Brian,   sister   Elaine   and   life   partner   Jack Cooperman   who   spoke   about   Lori’s   dedication   to   this   garden.      Located at   ALA’s   Tavern   Bay   Beach   Club,   the   garden   is   open   to   everyone.   Lori’s knowledge                and   expertise   in   creating   a beautiful             garden, provides    visitors    with a    setting    of    available native     and     adaptive trees,       shrubs       and ground       covers       for planting    in    our    area.
