By Susan A. Neufeld

UPDATE 2 – Friday, May 19, 2017 7:35 A.M.

The  next step for SkyPark will be the county’s completion of the Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the Board of Supervisors to consider in about 8 weeks.  The Commission recommended that the  Supervisors certify the EIR and make changes in in the county’s general plan to allow the parks expansion.

Bill Johnson stated that the certification of the EIR is the critical step necessary so they can obtain approval from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife and the Lahontan Regional Water Quality Control Board can issue their  approvals on the SkyPark plans.

UPDATE 1 – Thursday May 18,2017 2:00 p.m.

The San Bernardino County Planning Commission voted 4-0 to send the Environmental Impact Report for SkyPark to the Board of Supervisors for action.

The mountain was well represented at the meeting.  Will have more information as it becomes available.


San Bernardino, CA – The Environmental Impact Report for SkyPark is set to go before the Planning Commission May,18, 2017.  The meeting will begin at 9:00 a.m. at 385 Arrowhead Ave., San Bernardino, CA.

The Process

The public is invited to attend and anyone who wants to publicly comment on the project will  have an opportunity to do so before the Planning Commission discusses or acts upon the matter. Then, the Planning Commission will take everything into consideration and make a recommendation to the Board of Supervisors for consideration at a later date.

Before going before the Board of Supervisors, the public will again have ample opportunity to examine and prepare comments on the project before the Board of Supervisors discusses or acts upon the matter.

The Conditional Use Permit would replace the temporary use permit. Until they have the Conditional Use Permit, they need a temporary use permit to operate.
