Does this Green Path North route look familiar?
Read post-meeting analysis
of David Nahai’s presentation at Yucca Valley
Green Path North is a proposed power corridor of 500-kilovolt transmission lines that the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power wants to carve through pristine desert and desert communities.
LADWP’s favored route would slice through the Big Morongo Canyon Preserve ACEC, Pioneertown Mountains Preserve, undeveloped natural areas on public lands, and several Mojave Desert communities. Starting in Desert Hot Springs, massive power poles and power lines would march across the desert, impacting the communities of Morongo Valley, Yucca Valley, Pioneertown, Pipes Canyon, Flamingo Heights, Landers, Johnson Valley, Lucerne Valley, and Apple Valley, as LADWP cuts its so-called “Green Path” to Hesperia.
We need your help. You may be a resident of an affected community facing devaluation of your home and property, the threat of eminent domain, economic impacts, and a diminishing of your quality of life. You may be an environmentalist concerned with the devastation the power lines would wreak on endangered species, the disruption of wildlife corridors and fragmentation of habitat, and the overall ungreenness of Green Path North. You may be an urban resident who visits the desert to unwind, enjoy beautiful vistas, starry nights, and peaceful surroundings.
Green Path North would affect us all and very unnecessarily. There are many alternatives to Green Path North. Help us fight the fight to preserve our natural legacy for now and for future generations.
