County takes no action on massive housing development proposed near Joshua Tree NP

Riverside County Planning Commission on Wednesday punted on taking action on Paradise Valley, a proposed community that would allow up to 8,490 homes to be built on a property south of Joshua Tree National Park, on the outskirts of the eastern Coachella Valley.


The proposal from developer GLC Enterprises LLC has faced years of pushback from environmental advocates, as well as state and federal wildlife agencies, who have warned that Paradise Valley would disturb the environmentally-sensitive desert dry wash habitat and disrupt areas populated by the desert tortoise and other wildlife.
