Sierra Club to discuss Mt. Konocti acquisition

KELSEYVILLE – The next meeting of the Sierra Club Lake Group will feature a presentation by county Public Services Director Kim Clymire about the county's proposed acquisition of 1,500 acres of magnificent open space on the heights of Mt. Konocti.

The meeting will take place at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 8, at the Kelseyville High School Library, 5480 Main St.

This very special land, which includes all the major peaks, some remarkable biological resources, and views to die for, has been offered to the County of Lake for the comparatively meager sum of $2.6 million, and the Board of Supervisors has indicated their strong support for moving ahead with the purchase, which must be completed by the end of September, 2009.

Clymire will discuss the nuts and bolts of the purchase (options, escrows, federal, state, and local funding sources), describe plans for developing the land for recreational use by hikers, bikers, and equestrians, and – best of all – show photographs of the property and the breathtaking views from the heights.

Although the bulk of the purchase price is expected to come from state and federal grants, local participation by individuals and organizations will also play an essential part in bringing this endeavor – a pivotal accomplishment for our community – to a successful conclusion.

The meeting is free and open to the public: please join us to learn more about this momentous opportunity, including the ways that we can all work together to make it a reality.

For more information, call Victoria Brandon at 994-1931.
