I expect to have an update to the LC Drive and secondary road access projects for the April 16th LCPOA Board meeting. I am getting some positive feedback! Please plan to attend this meeting at the Lake Club 7 PM to get the latest info.
Notes from 4/2/19 Tehama County (TC) Board of Supervisors meeting. There were a number of items on the agenda but for LC residents the following were of special interest:
TC FIRE FEE INCREASES – The BOS motioned to amend Ordinance No 2069 to phase in 50% of the fee increases in July and 50% of the fee increases in Jan 2020 and to set the fireworks sales and show permit fees to be $150 each for non-profit organizations. This is a great outcome for LC because the fees would have been nearly $500 without this change. Three LC residents attended the meeting and two spoke on behalf of the need for reduced fees for non-profit organizations. The comments can be heard during the 10 AM public comment and 1:30 PM board discussion on this agenda item (#34).
The commission formally announced that the 2019 Draft Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) is in the comment period and is currently being reviewed by the public and RTPA Technical Advisory Committee (TAC). The actual first publication date for the Red Bluff Daily News is March 20, 2019. This is an updated date from previously stated. Additionally, the TAC was rescheduled for May 1, 2019 in order to extend the public comment period and increase outreach efforts. Once the TAC has made a recommendation for Commission review, Commissioners will begin their review of the Draft RTP. The 2019 RTP Draft, Appendices, Initial Study, Environmental Document, 2015 Plan, and Negative Declaration are available Tehama County Public Works Regional Transportation Plan Page.
Of note is that LC Drive is receiving key updates to improve safety. Please note that this is not the only LC Drive road improvement project that is planned for LC Drive. I expect it to be 1 of three projects that will be performed. More about that at the 4/16 LCPOA Drive meeting. This is all I can say about that until after the 4/16 TC BOS meeting.
Please also note that the safety study reveals what I already knew – which is that there is a DUI issue on LC Drive. We need to work this issue too!
Burning will be allowed in Lake California for residents on their private property only. No burning shall take place by residents on LCPOA common areas or greenbelts. We have determined that a significant hazard exist with an excessive accumulation of down fall following the snow storm in February. This excessive fuel loading poses a significant summer time fire hazard to our community. This is an emergency fuels reduction program aimed at reducing the fuel loading caused by the storm. Time frame will be April 1, 2019 to May 15, 2019 on proper burn days determined by Cal Fire. After this set time frame burning is not allowed by residents per rule RR-06-06 Burning.
A free burn permit must be obtained from CAL FIRE (closest is the Bowman Station) for burning taking place from May 1, 2019 to May 15, 2019. Cal Fire guidelines regarding what can and can't be burned, how big the piles must be, who must be in attendance, when and when not to burn, what is needed for burning and the phone number to determine if it is a burn day or not, etc. must be followed. CAL FIRE will administer the process. Residents that do not follow burn procedures will be cited/fined by Cal Fire and the LCPOA.
One may be of particular interest to residents given the comments at the last LCPOA Board meeting. TC Fire Fee changes are set for a vote at 1:30 PM. The fee changes increase the cost of fire services & fire-related inspections and includes an increase in fireworks permit costs.

If you have opinions that you want considered before the vote is taken you should attend the meeting and make comments during the 10 AM Public comment period.
