Document Description
On June 23, 2020, Lake Arrowhead Community Services District adopted Resolution No. 2020-04 determining that there is no feasible alternative to the Hesperia Farms Solar Photovoltaic Proposal ("Proposal"), rendering City of Hesperia zoning ordinances inapplicable pursuant to Government Code section 53096. The Proposal, as that term is used in section 53096, is the same solar project previously approved by the District on August 9, 2017 when the District adopted Addendum No. 1 to the Final Initial Study and Mitigated Negative Declaration ("MND") for an alternative site for the Hesperia Farms Solar Photovoltaic Project (" Project"). The Project would be located on five to six acres in the southern portion of a District-owned, 350-acre property located in the eastern portion of the City of Hesperia known as Hesperia Farms, in San Bernardino County. The parcel is bounded on the west by Arrowhead Lake Road, on the east by vacant land, spreading ponds, on the south by an unnamed street off of Arrowhead Lake Road and on the north by vacant land and one abandoned single-family residence. On December 15, 2015, the District adopted the Final Initial Study and MND and a Mitigation Monitoring and Reporting Program for the Project, found the Project exempt from City zoning and building ordinances under Government Code sections 53091 and 53096, and approved the Project. See NOD for full document description.
