Jerry Jolliffe, Riverside County Deputy Planning Director, confirmed this morning that the Dec. 7 Town Hall meeting scheduled from 7 to 9 p.m. is postponed due to snow in Idyllwild. "Unfortunately, due to snow, the meeting to discuss the historic resources survey and the potential for Idyllwild to become a Historic Preservation District must be postponed," said Jolliffe. "It will be rescheduled as soon as feasible." With no way to ensure optimal weather conditions and the Christmas holiday approaching, the meeting may have to wait until January.
Jolliffe regrets the cancellation since he believes the formation of a Historic District could help business owners by providing Idyllwild a tourist niche and cache as the county's sole Historic District in addition to protecting historic resources largely absent in the much of the rest of the county.
We will announce the date of the rescheduled meeting as soon as it is set. Information regarding the meeting and any questions about Historic District formation can be found at and directed to the county planning website at www.tlma.co.riverside.ca.us/planning.
