Last Tuesday night, May 10, the City Council passed the final version of the Master Plan and Implementation Plan for the Wilderness Park. Those of us in the Claremont Wildlands Conservancy would like to thank all of you who supported our efforts to create a viable Master Plan that will pave the way to conserve the natural beauty of the Park, maintain access for all those who wish to visit, manage the Park in ways that achieve the goals of the Master Plan, provide sustainable funding, and look towards the future by seeking to expand the Park through acquisition of adjacent properties. more >
The City has published its final versions of the Master Plan and its Implementation Plan for management of the Claremont Hills Wilderness Park.
These are the versions that the Claremont City Council will review, next Tuesday, May 10th.
We at the Claremont Wildlands Conservancy will also be reviewing the two documents, in order to offer our perspective at the City Council meeting.
We invite you to look over the two plans, and to attend the meeting to share your perspective.

Alongside the CWC's official response to the draft of the Wilderness Park master plan, this Fall members of the Conservancy's board of directors have also written letters to Claremont's mayor, its city council, and relevant city staff members on a variety of topics related to the master plan. Copies of these letters have also been published in the Claremont Courier. These letters have focused important issues including park funding, expansion, governance, access, and community benefits. more >
The CWC responds to the City of Claremont's call for public comment on its Draft Master Plan for the Claremont Hills Wilderness Park. The CWC Board has analyzed the draft plan and formulated our responses to its various proposals. We are in general agreement with many of the recommendation, but we identify three major areas where we see opportunities to improve the plan, including vision, funding, and governance. more >
