Board Members Present:

Robert Carlyle, Russ Day, Donna Dose, Thomas Fortney, Elizabeth Getzoff (alternate), Bruce Graves, John Moriarity, Michael Pique, John Tainer,

The meeting was convened at 9:45 A.M. Saturday April 15,1995.

Secretary's Report:

The minutes from the November 19, 1995 PMPO Board meeting were postponed. The minutes from the February 18, 1995 PMPO Board meeting were approved.

Treasurer's Report:

Balance is $6853.21, following incoming contributions of $135. and an expenditure of $265. to Brian Mooney & Assoc. for participation in the first discussion of the antenna issue. Thanks to the members of the Palomar Mutual Water Board for their financial contributions to the PMPO.


Cedar Creek Water Development:

Libby Getzoff summarized an update from county groundwater geologist John Peterson. Judge Yale has hired a new hydrology consultant, Doug Roff of Barrett Consulting Group, who has submitted a revised report on his well tests to be reviewed by the County. Judge Yale has still not yet filed an application for a major use permit. Issues of water rights law were discussed. John Tainer will call Tom Burton to get his advice on the legal issues. The PMPO approved the allocation of $1000 to pay for additional advice, if needed, from Brian Mooney & Associates concerning this water project.

Mendenhall Ranch Water Project:

John Moriarty reported that the Mendenhall Ranch water project has ended, although the Mendenhalls maintain the right to pump water for their own use. George Ravenscroft reported, however, that SAMDA is still working with the Indians, who are spending $40,000 to study the feasibility of water development and are bulldozing roads straight up the side of the mountain from the water park.

Relay Engineering Major Use Permit:

Bruce Graves received a letter dated 17 March 1995 from Don Ramer, which reiterated the positions of Relay engineering and thanked us for allowing them to address the PMPO on February 18, 1995. It was agreed that the PMPO does not see a reason to override the guidelines set up by the existing telecommunications ordinance. Bruce will get a copy of the original ordinance regarding antennae farms, and Libby Getzoff will draft a follow-up letter from the PMPO to Max Stalheim and Richard Herrmann at the County of San Diego Department of Planning and Land Use.


Vacancies on the PMPO Board:

We will have two vacancies on the PMPO Board: Bill Meyer has resigned due to moving, and Russ Litchfield does not wish to run for re-election. Three incombents are running for re-election: Bruce Graves, Russ Day, and Tom Burton. Russ Day will run the election at the annual meeting.

1995 News Letter:

Bill Meyer plans to include the termination of the Mendenhall water project in the newsletter, and John Moriarity will approach Dave Mendenhall for his comments. The newsletter will emphasize positive events on the front page.

The meeting was adjourned.
