PHELAN, California (June 24, 2021) – The Phelan Piñon Hills Community Services District (“District”) will host a community town hall on Saturday July 10, 2021, at 9:30 a.m. in Phelan Community Park. The topic will be “Community Safety.”
With rising concerns over community safety, primarily as a result of the large-scale marijuana grows proliferating throughout the District’s service area, the District will host a community town hall for District residents to hear from their elected representatives on how they are addressing this issue and ask questions about other safety related topics.
“The District is seeing an extraordinary number of large, industrial-scale marijuana grows moving into the area, and they are starting to popup in residential areas,” stated Don Bartz, General Manager. “We are very concerned about the side effects of these major grows which include bringing criminals into the area, water theft, trash dumping, sewage dumping, and chemical dumping. Our residents are concerned so we have put together a town hall for them to have their concerns addressed. We are pleased that so many of our elected representatives are eager to attend and help us address this matter.”
Confirmed to attend are Congressman Obernolte, Sheriff McMahon, Undersheriff Dicus, District Attorney Jason Anderson, State Senator Ochoa-Bogh, Assemblyman “Smitty” Smith, and Assemblyman Lackey; Supervisor Cook was also invited.
District residents are encouraged to attend. The town hall will take place in Phelan Community Park located at 4176 Warbler Road in Phelan. Residents are encouraged to email questions for their representatives to email@example.com
