Since the publication of the draft Master Plan for the Claremont Hills Wilderness Park in July 2015, the Claremont Wildlands Conservancy has shared its responses in a number ways.
Alongside the CWC's response to the master plan, 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.
This page provides access to all of the letters that CWC board members have sent during Fall 2015, as originally published in the Courier. Please note that the Courier typically limits letters to 250 words; therefore, the published letters do not address all aspects of the CWC's position.
