  5.  Councilmember Comments – Pam has received phone calls from residents saying dump trucks for illegal dumping have been seen back in town.  Tom welcomed Brandon Roque to the school board position.  Tom also reported that trucks from North Star Minerals are speeding down Aliso Canyon.  We need to reach out.
  6. Heffner Road / Dalusong CUP – We have received information back from several County agencies, we still need to hear from Fire and Health.  Jacki spoke about asking them for a trail easement since their property backs up to two movie ranches that are applying for CUP’s and will be asked for a trail easement.  This will provide connectivity to trails.  We might ask Mr Dalusong if he amenable to a trail easement and ask him to come to the September 16th meeting.
  7. Thousand Trails CUP – The Septic Report only talked about the backwash on the pool.  It seems that Public Health has not considered all the septics in the park that have been added since their last CUP.  Public Health Department approved with no studies.  We should reach out to the reviewer and talk about what we feel they have missed.  Parks and Recreation only requests a trail easement.  We need to ask them what is happening on conservency land trails and why are they not being constructed?  Public Works has asked for no road improvements over the blue line stream.  If this is the case then are they going to give all residential properties the same consideration. We need to reach out to the Fire Department since there are no comments from them.  There are no restrictions placed on uses in the south campgrounds over the river, but restrictions are in place at the KOA.  Can we put Thousand Trails reports on the website to get community feedback.
  8.  Drive-Thru Ordinance / County Counsel – The BOS is considering a revision of our CSD on September 24, 2019.  There was discussion over some of the concerns and facts.  Jacki Ayer made a motion to reach out to the BOS with all of our concerns and facts, to set the record straight.  Tom Costan 2nd the motion.  The motion carried. 
  9. Interim Housing Ordinance – Regional Planning will be at the September 16, 2019 ATC meeting to discuss the draft ordinance which should be out at the end of August.  Comments included the need for safe parking with conditions put on it and enforce the conditions and have a revocation policy.  Also no services at campgrounds.  We should ask our local churches to come on Sept 16th.
