Still Life Café

Dear Supervisor Tillemans,

I am writing to ask you to direct the Planning Department Staff not to proceed with their current REGPA recommendation.

As a small business owner who came to this valley because of its beauty, I believe zoning our open spaces as industrial would be a tragedy. When I travel through the Mojave, I wonder what it once looked like and imagine the devastation to the Owens Valley if this recommendation goes through.

My business relies heavily on tourism,  so I urge you to protect our local economy by seeking alternatives.

I am very concerned that people would just choose to go someplace else.  People come here because they are trying to get away from that kind of development.  They do not want to see it in their vacation places.
