joshua_treeA classic land use battle is taking shape in Joshua Tree where citizens of the California national park community have mobilized a Joshua Tree Development Oversight Group (JTDOG) to battle a housing developer in decisions about land use.

Joshua Tree is an unincorporated community, under the jurisdiction of San Bernadino County, and must compete against the developer for support from a majority of the county board of supervisors.

The Hi-Desert Star reports on the group’s efforts to confront a developer’s plans to build 2,700 homes on a square mile of the Joshua Tree National Forest in California.
