February 24, 2010 Shelter Valley Newt By Jean Anderson President, Shelter Valley Citizens Corporation Chairperson, Shelter Valley Kids Club Moving Forward With Cell Tower Site Lease The Shelter Valley Community Center was standing-room-only on the evening of February 3, 2010. Members, residents and guests gathered for a presentation by Mr. Lior Avraham, consultant for Mobil,tie Investments II, LLC. "Mobil,tie" is the company that wanted to lease a portion of a vacant lot owned by SVCC to construct and operate a communications facility (cell phone tower and equipment). Negotiations between SVCC and "Mobil,tie" regarding the Site Lease began in October, 2009. Mr. Avraham discussed the proposed project and answered questions from the audience. At the end of the presentation, SVCC members present voted unanimously to approve the Site Lease Agreement. After recording the document(s) with the appropriate San Diego County agencies, "Mobil,tie" can then move forward with the permit process, which can take several months. Once approved, we could see a tower soon after. Total estimated timeframe is 14-18 months. We are looking forward to the cell tower for many reasons. Not only will it provide cell phone coverage as an everyday convenience, but will also be available during power outages, particularly for emergency use. The Site Lease will provide monthly income to SVCC--possibly for as long as 35 years. The income will make it possible for us to better maintain and upgrade the Community Center property. In other business at the meeting, the Board appointed Mr. Clarence Watkins to fill a vacancy created by the resignation of Mr. Tony Mayors. We are sorry to lose Tony as a Board member, but very glad that Clarence stepped forward to fill the position. He has been very active in the community since he and his wife, Diane moved to SV several years ago to live with his father, Mr. Bob Watkins. A new CERT class was scheduled to begin in SV on February 20 and will take place every two weeks until completed. Contact Mr. Ed Genest at 765-1924 for information. The instructors will also be doing classes in Canebrake. Thanks to Johnny Hake, Chief Kevin Dubler and their assistants who will be coordinating and teaching the classes. Local resident Rod Johnson reported that he has seen evidence of at least one mountain lion near his home on Last Dollar Trail. We're used to seeing and hearing coyotes, but not mountain lions.
