Huge housing development proposed next to Joshua Tree NP rejected by county board

A last-ditch effort to resuscitate plans to build a new city on the southern side of Joshua Tree National Park failed at the Riverside County Board of Supervisors meeting on Tuesday, marking a win for conservationists and eastern Coachella Valley residents who voiced concerns about damaging sprawl.
