MILDA TOWN AT PALA CREEK
SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA   ·  UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

 

PALA

Pala is a small, mostly Native American, community located in San Diego County, California near Fallbrook. It is east of Carlsbad in the San Diego-Carlsbad metro area.

In the National Geographic Names Database it is officially catalogued as feature number 1661174. The community is in ZIP Code 92059, and inside area code 760.

The community name may be derived from the Native American Cupeño or Luiseño language group term pal, meaning "water." Another possible origin of the name is the Spanish word pala, which means "shovel."

The community is in the Pacific time zone.

Pala is at an altitude of four hundred [400'] feet, located at latitude 33°21′55″N 117°04′36″W [33.365N, longitude 117.075W].

Mission San Antonio de Pala

Founded by Father Antonio Peyri OFM on June 13th, 1816, is the only one of the original Spanish California Missions to survive in its purpose of service to Native Americans.

The Mission at Pala was built as an 'asistencia' to the larger Mission San Luis Rey - west of Pala. The location of 'Pala' was ideal: there was water {Pala in Native American means 'water'};  the soil was good, and there was a large Native American population. By 1816 Mission San Luis Rey had grown so much that Fr. Antonio Peyri established a chapel, which he dedicated to St. Anthony of Padua.

The bell tower, modeled after one in Juarez, Mexico, differs from all others in the twenty-one [21] California Mission Chain in that it stands apart from the main structure.

The old cemetery, the Mission Courtyard garden, and shrines have the strong appeal of peace and meditation and are reminiscent of the past.

SAN ANTONIO de PALA ASISTENCIA


STUDY CREDIT

The San Antonio de Pala Asistencia, or the "Pala Mission", was founded on June 13, 1816 as an asistencia["sub-mission"] to Mission San Luis Rey de Francia, some twenty [20] miles inland upstream from the mission on the San Luis Rey River. It was part of the Spanish Missions, Asistencias, and Estancias System in Las Californias—Alta California.

Today it is located in the Pala Indian Reservation located in northern San Diego County, with official name is now Mission San Antonio de Pala.It is the only historic mission facility still serving a Mission Indian Tribe.

 

Pala [a derivation of the native term Pale, meaning water] was essentially a small rancho surrounded by large fields and herds. The Pala site had been noted by Father Juan Mariner and Captain Juan Pablo Grijalva on an exploratory trip in 1795, when they went up the San Diego River, and then through Sycamore Canyon to the Santa Maria Valley [or Pamó Valley] and into what they named El Valle de San José, now known as Warner Springs.

Once Mission San Luis Rey began to prosper, its existence attracted the attention of large number of mountain Native Americans, called the Luiseño by the Spanish.

 

THE SPANISH ERA

The site for the Pala Mission was selected because it already was a traditional gathering place and village for the Native American residents.

Father Peyrí oversaw the addition of a chapel and housing to the granary complex that was constructed at the spot in 1810.

The chapel has interior wall surfaces featured paintings by native artists, originally measured one hundred forty-four [144'] feet by twenty-seven [27' feet. Workers went into the Palomar Mountains and harvested cedar trees for use as roof beams

Pala is unique among all of the Franciscan missions in that it boasts the only completely freestanding campanile, or "bell tower," in all of Alta California. By 1820, some 1,300 baptisms had been performed at the outpost. Folk tales about the mission all include mention of a prickly pear cactus, a symbol of Christian victory, that grew up at the foot of the cross.

 

THE MEXICAN ERA

The Mexican Congress passed An Act for the Secularization of the Missions of California on August 17, 1833 [the Act was ratified in 1834].

Father Buenaventura Fortuna surrendered Mission San Luis Rey and all its holdings, including Las Flores Estancia and the Pala Asistencia, to government comisianados [commissioners] Pío Pico and Pablo de la Portillà on August 22, 1835; the assessed value of "Rancho de Pala" was $15,363.25.

Fearful of the impending conquest of Alta California by the United States, Pico sold off all of the holdings [including Pala] to Antonio J. Cot and José A. Pico on May 18, 1846 for $2,000.00 in silver and $437.50 in wheat [the sale was later declared invalid by the U.S. Government].

Through the years, priests from San Luis Rey continued to visit Pala and conduct baptisms, marriages, and worship services.

 

THE MODERN ERA

On Christmas Day, 1899 the San Jacinto Earthquake shook the Pala Valley, causing the rook over the church sanctuary to collapse.

In 1902, a group calling itself the "Landmarks Club of Southern California", under the direction of American journalist, historian, and photographer Charles Fletcher Lummis, purchased Pala Mission. The following year, the Club returned ownership to the Catholic Church and "...saved the Chapel and a few rooms from complete ruin with a timely work of partial restoration...".

Pala is alone among the California missions in that it that has ministered without interruption to the Mission Indians for whom it was originally built since its inception. It is also the only sub-mission [Asistencia] still intact. The traditional Corpus Christi Fiesta has been celebrated every year since its founding. Though it lacked a resident priest, Pala nonetheless served as the "mother" mission to chapels in Cahuilla, La Jolla, Pauma, Pichanga, Rincon, Santa Rosa, and Temecula.

On August 9, 1942 MGM motion picture actress Ruth Hussey was wed at Pala Mission. In 1948 the Verona Fathers [Sons of the Sacred Heart] succeeded the Franciscans in the care of the Mission. Six years later, the fathers undertook a complete restoration of the Mission.

In May, 1991 administration of the Mission reverted to the Roman Catholic Diocese of San Diego, and since June 1996 the Barnabite Fathers have held charge over the Mission's affairs.

COMMUNITY CHARACTER 

GREATER COMMUNITY AND PUBLIC BENEFITS

Millions of people reside with-in a two hour drive of  Milda Town at Pala Creek & The New Milda Town on The Hill.

It is reported that one of every nine families support a Recreational Vehicle [RV].

The primary focus of the proposer of  Milda Town at Pala Creek & The New Milda Town on the Hill is to create a pleasant, safe, and enjoyable "parklands" experience.

As a "Seniors and Families Oriented Recreational Parklands Community", set in a rustic, romantic, mountainous setting,  Milda Town at Pala Creek & The New Milda Town on the Hill shall provide a retreat only minutes south of the burgeoning Temecula Valley.

The  Milda Town at Pala Creek  development program fills a need for public access parklands capable of supporting the next generation of recreational vehicles [RV’s]. Much of the existing RV "guest site inventory", in both public and private facilities, is substandard, and at holiday periods much of the remaining capacity is over subscribed.

This "recreational parklands" project is proposed as a private enterprise, available to all, with minimal contribution expected from the County of San Diego, or State of California.

The project’s architectural personality is of circa 1900 "Old West" imagery, and is closely aligned with the festive "cowboy" nature of Old Temecula. As a "facilities identity" and responsible marketing amenity,  Milda Town at Pala Creek & The New Milda Town on the Hill is to be reminiscent of the golden years of mining exploration, and the "Early California Settlers" years.

Although this project will be a positive continuance of the Old Temecula imagery, given the natural appearance of the area, virtually any man made improvements, no matter the level of tastefulness or creative involvement, will create an impact.

 

TBNC Edgemon Recreational Resorts USA Milda Town at Pala Creek, Environmental Planning, Site Design & Engineering Programs, Construction Management Edgemon SCLB 274107

OPEN SPACE COMMITMENT

 A reservation of more than sixty-five percent [65%] of the two hundred twelve [212] development parcels acreage of this project, will remain undisturbed in appearance, and serve as open space element. 

A site enhancement campaign shall be undertaken to remove and dispose of deleterious materials including illegally dumped and environmentally damaging trash and garbage deposits. 

Additionally, undesirable, unmanageable and non-indigenous undergrowth will be addressed to effect safe fire management, erosion control, general "parklands" esthetics, and reasonable water sheet-flow and the prescribed Pala Creek flood control methodologies.

The development of commercial avocado production groves on the neighboring westerly slopes [west side of Pala-Temecula Road] will provide for a welcoming, fresh green Vegetive canopy. It is envisioned that the secondary water from "on-site" wastewater management facilities will be blended with a large reserve of well water to provide more-than-adequate irrigation supply.

Care has been exercised in the design and engineering of this project to geomorphically place the improvements to reflect and enhance the natural, in situ granitic boulder embedded topography. New landscape plantings and "native-style" tree canopy will replicate the Southern California chaparral and oak imagery, with special effort to incorporate fire defensible vegetation.

 

 

The Milda Town at Pala Creek & The New Milda Town on the Hill project will be largely self-contained with extensive recreational activities, on-site consumer supplies, instantaneous telecommunications coupled to health and safety agencies, and ambient "on-site" safety and security personnel. Consequently, it is not expected Milda Town at Pala Creek & The New Milda Town on the Hill will negatively affect the lifestyles of the surrounding, rural in nature, residential community.

The creation of Milda Town at Pala Creek & The New Milda Town on the Hill  is planned to be developed in phases, over a number of years, thus the impact to the community would be a gradual introduction.

Landform changes will be minimal in the relationship of the two hundred twelve [212] acre program. Manufactured in-fill slopes, and mechanically cut banks, shall be softened by graduated contour, irregular placement, and aesthetic gradients.

Extensive use of in situ granitic boulders incorporated into the landscape gradient will enhance the visual presentation from the primary view-source, Pala-Temecula Road.

A minimization of disturbance and a maximization of natural elements and the geomorphically placed improvements, including the curvilinear roadways system, to the extent possible to effect a safe, intra-community traffic flow, and the preservation of the established tree canopy, will contribute to a "blending" of this project with the surrounding community.

 

 
 
 
 

 

OVERVIEW OF THE PROPOSED MILDA TOWN RECREATIONAL COMMUNITY

THE FINE DINING EXPERIENCE AT PALA CREEK
[By Special Pre-Engagement]

In formal dining, a full course dinner can consist of five [5], seven [7], eight [8], ten [10] or twelve [12] courses, and, in its extreme form, has been known to have twenty-one [21] courses. In these more formalized dining events, the courses are carefully planned to complement each other gastronomically. The courses are smaller and spread out over a long evening, up to three [3], four [4] or five [5] hours, and follow conventions of menu planning that have been established over many years.

Most courses [excluding some light courses such as sorbets] in the most formal full course dinners are usually accompanied by ["paired with"] a different wine, liqueur, or other spirit; in America, craft beers are occasionally integrated into less formal pairings.

 

CUTLERY & TABLE SETTINGS

Table settings can be elaborate. More ostentatious settings sometimes include all silverware and glassware that will be needed for the entire meal, and lay out the silverware so that the outermost tools are used for the dishes appearing earliest on the menu. In this scheme, when diners are served the first course, they can depend on finding the correct implement at the outermost edge of the arrangement.

An alternative scheme arranges the place setting so that only the implements needed for the first one or two courses appear in the table setting. As the dinner progresses and new courses arrive, used implements are removed with the dishes, and new silverware is placed next to the plates. This scheme is commonly used when dinners are offered à la carte, so that the most appropriate implement is selected for a given course. For example, some diners may order clear, thin soups and others may order thick, creamy soups. As each of these soups has its own unique spoon, it would be considered improper and impractical to lay out a spoon that may not be needed or correct.

A "state of the art" next generation Recreational Vehicle Resort to attract the newer Motorcoach and "Full-Timers" guest clientele. Approximately eighty [80] guest sites, with approximately sixteen [16] "Next Generation Pull-Through" sites.

All potable water and wastewater services, electrical connection, cable television availability, telephone and telecommunications will be provided with special consideration for "high-speed" Internet capabilities.

On site amenities will include both open playground facilities and intimate "pocket parks", secondary clubhouse and group meeting hall, swimming and spa element, public showers and restrooms, laundries, and an extensive tree canopy.

 

THE RECREATIONAL VEHICLE LIFESTYLE

The Recreational Vehicle [RV] lifestyle is made up of those interested in traveling and camping rather than living in one location, as well as by vacationers. Some travel nearer the equator during the winter months in their RV and return in spring. This is sometimes referred to in the USA as snowbirding.

There are a large and growing number of people who live full time in their RV/motorhome; these are known as full-timers. There is another subculture of the RV lifestyle known as workampers. These are people that work at the campgrounds/RV parks they stay at for site and perks.

While many RVers may be retirees, other individuals and families are choosing RV travel as a way to see parts of the world while maintaining their incomes via technology available from the RV [such as the Internet, phones, faxes, etc.].

Some choose to park in locations without camping sites for a variety of reasons, including saving money, more choice of location, isolation, privacy, adventure, more self-sufficiency and to be nearer a target location.

There is a growing community of Burners [as Burning Man participants are called] who have taken recreational vehicles and modified them so as to fit their beliefs. The conversion of old school buses to this end is a popular choice. Some take old diesel vehicles and burn biodiesel or waste vegetable oil in them in order to make them more environmentally friendly than conventional RVs.

The RV Lifestyle is particularly popular among senior citizens. Like many other RVers, they have often sold their homes and often travel to warm climates in the winter. In Australia, these travellers are known as grey nomads.

ENHANCEMENT AND DEDICATION OF RICH OAK RIPARIAN HABITAT AT PALA CREEK

Pala Creek traverses the length of the project property from the north to the south.

At mid-point of Grubstake Pete’s Mining Camp Experience through the southerly entry portal of Milda Town at Pala Creek, esthetic and structural riparian and landscape enhancement will be accomplished upon the creek bed and creek flow walls.

A "Flowage Easement" may be granted to the County of San Diego assuring reasonable drainage and flood water management in perpetuity.

 

 

DEDICATION OF "FUTURE PLANNING PARCEL, Study No. 001 [GP4ac.001.R]

Approximately 17.71 acres is available from the project developer/owner for dedication to the County’s Regional Park System, subject to certain tax and legal consideration.

The terrain is steeply rising from the Pala Creek bed with approximate elevations of 520.00' to 1140.00'.

 

DEDICATION OF PALA-TEMECULA ROAD RIGHT-of-WAY [ROW]

The project developer/owner of  Milda Town at Pala Creek & The New Milda Town on The Hill  is prepared to dedicate roadway realty to the County of San Diego to meet the regional traffic circulation goal of an eighty-four foot [84'] Pala-Temecula right-of-way.

 

THE OPEN SPACE COMMITMENT

The current  Milda Town at Pala Creek & The New Milda Town on The Hill project as planned, allows for more than 65% of the fee ownership site to remain in undisturbed native vegetation [< 145 acres].

In the future more details will be published as to the significant environmental benefits to be enhanced by this commitment.

MANUFACTURED HOMES


STUDY CREDIT

Manufactured housing [commonly known as mobile homes in the United States] is a type of prefabricated housing that is largely assembled in factories and then transported to sites of use. The definition of the term in the United States is regulated by federal law [Code of Federal Regulations, 24 CFR 3280]:

"Manufactured homes are built as dwelling units of at least three hundred twenty [320] square feet in size with a permanent chassis to assure the initial and continued transportability of the home." The requirement to have a wheeled chassis permanently attached differentiates "manufactured housing" from other types of prefabricated homes, such as modular homes.

 

MODULAR HOMES

Modular buildings and modular homes are sectional prefabricated buildings or houses that consist of multiple modules or sections which are manufactured in a remote facility and then delivered to their intended site of use. The modules are assembled into a single residential building using either a crane or trucks.

Modular buildings are considerably different from mobile homes. Off-frame modular dwellings differ from mobile homes largely in their absence of axles or a frame, meaning that they are typically transported to their site by means of flat-bed trucks; however, some modular dwellings are built on a steel frame [on-frame module] that can be used for transportation to the site. Many modular homes have multiple levels. Homes are often set in place using a crane.

 

 MARKETPLACE UTILIZATION

Modular buildings have a variety of uses. They may be used for long-term, temporary or permanent facilities, such as construction camps, schools and classrooms, civilian and military housing, and industrial facilities. Modular buildings are used in remote and rural areas where conventional construction may not be reasonable or possible, for example, the Halley VI accommodation pods used for a BAS Antarctic expedition.

Other uses have included churches, health care facilities, sales and retail offices, fast food restaurants and cruise ship construction.

Buying a new manufactured home is both a smart and wise investment. You have assurances of quality from the federal government under the U.S. Housing and Urban Development construction standards program [implemented in 1976 to regulate the factory construction of every manufactured home built in America]. This code assures the home buyer that a home constructed in California, or anywhere in the country, is covered by this strict code that supersedes all state and local regulations.

This code covers design and construction regulations such as strength, durability, fire resistance and energy efficiency, plus heating, plumbing, air conditioning and electrical systems.

Factory construction creates better value for the home buyer. The key to building high-quality homes is having a well trained, stable work force in a factory setting. There are no independent, uncontrolled, expensive subcontractors. As new methods and technologies improve how the homes are built, worker training can be accomplished easily within the worker groups on the factory floor.

Workers use sophisticated cutting and fastening machinery to ensure accurate, strong assembly. Large items such as roofing structures and walls can be pre-assembled, then placed accurately in position with overhead cranes. In-house shops pre-build kitchen and bathroom cabinets that are done on time and fit right on the first try.

A comprehensive quality inspection process guarantees that value is into every home at each step.

Bringing all the advantages of factory construction together makes it easier to maintain higher and more consistent quality in the building of manufactured homes and at a much lower cost than be done with site-built homes.

The manufactured home begins on a computer, using the latest software technology, assuring that the construction plan is designed and features and elements are perfect in every detail. Factories are able to buy materials in much larger quantities than site-builders, thus providing an enormous savings. In the climate controlled environment of the factory, builders are able to produce anywhere from 30 to 40 manufactured homes in a single week. Without weather delays the factory establishes a steady flow of efficiency that enables work to progress from start to finish uninterrupted. This translates to quality in the final product.

Materials are exactly the same as site-builders use. Same national brands, same dimensional lumber. If fact, you'll find that most building innovations were first used in a manufactured home factory. The major factory assembly line approach cuts construction costs by 20% on each unit. HUD standards of heating and cooling are quite rigid, and mean that each unit will be properly insulated, no matter in what climate zone that home may be placed. The walls are moved around by automated cranes, and as the wall is properly placed, the ceiling is also attached, providing for an air tight fit.

Because every movement in the factory is orchestrated for a specific reason, the efficiency level is extremely high. Because of these efficiencies, manufactured housing costs about one half what the conventional site-built home cost with same square footage and amenities. From the floor plan, to completion, including all integrated parts, such as wiring, insulation, to the exterior siding, are done in a matter of days in a carefully controlled work process.

Many standards applied to manufactured housing builders are unheard of in site-built construction. Quality is equal to, or greater than, some commercial buildings. Teams of quality control personnel are in constant contact with the construction process to insure that the job is done right the first time. In quality, energy efficiency, and value, manufactured homes are the new era of single family housing.

 

According to manufacturers, modular homes are generally designed to be initially stronger than traditional homes by, for example, replacing nails with screws and adding glue to joints. This is supposed to help the modules maintain their structural integrity as they are transported on trucks to the construction site.

Despite manufacturer claims that the modular home is initially built to be stronger than a traditional home, it is difficult to predict the final building strength since it needs to endure transportation stresses that traditional homes never experience.

When FEMA studied the destruction wrought by Hurricane Andrew in Dade County Florida, they concluded that modular and masonry homes fared best compared to other construction.

Typically, a modular home contains about ten [10] to twenty [20] percent more lumber compared to traditional stick-built homes. This is because modules need to be transported to the job site and the additional lumber helps keep them stable.

STANDARDS APPLICATON & LAND USE ZONING CONSIDERATIONS

Typically, modular dwellings are built to local, state or council code: dwellings built in a given manufacturing facility will have differing construction standards depending on the final destination of the modules. Steel and/or wood framing are common options for building a modular home. Modular home designs can be customized for local zoning codes. For example, homes built for final assembly in a hurricane-prone area may include additional bracing to meet local building codes.

Some US courts have ruled that zoning restrictions applicable to mobile homes do not apply to modular homes since modular homes are often assembled with a permanent foundation. Additionally, in the US, valuation differences between modular homes and site-built homes are often negligible in real estate appraisal practice; thus, modular homes can in some market areas [depending on local appraisal practices per Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice] be evaluated the same way as traditionally built dwellings of similar quality.

In Australia manufactured home parks are governed by additional legislation that does not apply to permanent modular homes. Possible developments in equivalence between modular and site-built housing types for the purposes of real estate appraisals, financing and zoning may increase the sales of modular homes over time.

The California Manufactured Housing Institute [CMHI] is a non-profit trade and professional association whose member companies build, sell and finance manufactured housing and develop manufactured housing communities and developments.

The Institute was founded to advance the availability and ownership of quality, high value homes, marketed by licensed retailers, by promoting the purchase of manufactured housing and the development of desirable sites and communities in California. The Institute's public, government and consumer relations programs are directed toward these goals.


FACTORY BUILT HOMES DISCUSSION

Many types of structures are built in the factory and designed for long-term residential use.

In the case of manufactured and modular homes, units are built in a factory, transported to the site and installed. 

In panelized and pre-cut homes, essentially flat subassemblies (factory-built panels or factory-cut building materials) are transported to the site and assembled. The different types of factory-built housing can be summarized as follows:


MANUFACTURED HOMES DISCUSSION

These are homes built entirely in the factory under a federal building code administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). 

The Federal Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standards [commonly known as the HUD Code] went into effect June 15, 1976. 

Manufactured homes may be single- or multi-section and are transported to the site and installed. 

The federal standards regulate manufactured housing design and construction, strength and durability, transportability, fire resistance, energy efficiency and quality. 

The HUD Code also sets performance standards for the heating, plumbing, air conditioning, thermal and electrical systems. It is the only federally-regulated national building code. 

On-site additions, such as garages, decks and porches, often add to the attractiveness of manufactured homes and must be built to local, state or regional building codes.

MODULAR HOMES DISCUSSION

These factory-built homes are built to the state, local or regional code where the home will be located. Modules are transported to the site and installed.


PANELIZED HOMES DISCUSSION

These are factory-built homes in which panels - a whole wall with windows, doors, wiring and outside siding - are transported to the site and assembled. The homes must meet state or local building codes where they are sited.

 

PRE-CUT HOMES DISCUSSION

This is the name for factory-built housing in which building materials are factory-cut to design specifications, transported to the site and assembled. Pre-cut homes include kit, log and dome homes. These homes must meet local, state or regional building codes.



MOBILE HOMES DISCUSSION

This is the term used for factory-built homes produced prior to June 15, 1976, when the HUD Code went into effect. By 1970, these homes were built to voluntary industry standards that were eventually enforced by 45 of the 48 contiguous states.

RIPARIAN ZONE

A riparian zone or riparian area is the interface between land and a river or stream. Riparian is also the proper nomenclature for one of the fifteen [15] terrestrial biomes of the earth.

Plant habitats and communities along the river margins and banks are called riparian vegetation, characterized by hydrophilic plants.

 

Riparian zones are significant in ecology, environmental management, and civil engineering because of their role in soil conservation, their habitat biodiversity, and the influence they have on fauna and aquatic ecosystems, including grassland, woodland, wetland or even non-vegetative. In some regions the terms riparian woodland, riparian forest, riparian buffer zone, or riparian strip are used to characterize a riparian zone.

The word "riparian" is derived from Latin ripa, meaning river bank. The riparian is an important feature of a wetland because it allows characterization of the wetland's overall health.

Riparian zones may be natural or engineered for soil stabilization or restoration. These zones are important natural biofilters, protecting aquatic environments from excessive sedimentation, polluted surface runoff and erosion. They supply shelter and food for many aquatic animals and shade that is an important part of stream temperature regulation. When riparian zones are damaged by construction, agriculture or silviculture, biological restoration can take place, usually by human intervention in erosion control and revegetation.

If the area adjacent to a watercourse has standing water or saturated soil for as long as a season, it is normally termed a wetland because of its hydric soil characteristics. Because of their prominent role in supporting a diversity of species, riparian zones are often the subject of national protection in a Biodiversity Action Plan. These also known as a "Plant or Vegetation Waste Buffer".

Research shows riparian zones are instrumental in water quality improvement for both surface runoff and water flowing into streams through subsurface or groundwater flow. Particularly the attenuation of nitrate or denitrification of the nitrates from fertilizer in this buffer zone is important.

Riparian zones can play a role in lowering nitrate contamination in surface runoff from agricultural fields, which runoff would otherwise damage ecosystems and human health. The use of wetland riparian zones shows a particularly high rate of removal of nitrate entering a stream and thus has a place in agricultural management.

 


SENSITIVE VEGETATION COMMUNITIES

 

The County of San Diego RPO [10 October 1991] Defines "Sensitive Habitat Lands" as Follows:

Land which supports unique vegetation communities, or habitats of rare or endangered species or sub-species of animals or plants as defined by Section 15380 of the State of California Environmental Quality Act [CEQA] Guidelines [14 California Administration Code Section 15000 et seq.]. "Sensitive Habitat Lands" include the area which is necessary to support a viable population of any of the above species in perpetuity, or which is critical to proper functioning of a balanced natural ecosystem or which serves as a functioning wildlife corridor.

SCOPE, SCALE & NATURE OF THE ZOOLOGICAL ASSIGNMENT

Zoologists are biological scientists who study animals. They observe animals both in their natural habitats and in the laboratory in order to learn as much as possible about animal life. Zoologists study the origin and development of animal species, the habits and behavior of animals, and the interaction between animals and their environment. They also do research to learn how animal diseases develop and how traits are passed from generation to generation.

Zoologists are sometimes known as animal scientists or animal biologists. Their field is zoology, or animal biology. Like botany and microbiology, zoology is a major division of biology.

Zoology is a broad field. It includes the study of animals as varied as elephants, kangaroos, and killer sharks. Zoologists work in all areas of animal life, studying both simple and complex processes. For example, a zoologist might examine the overall structure of a cat or just the microscopic cells in its brain. Zoologists study the life functions of a single animal, such as an insect, as well as the behavior of whole colonies of ants, flocks of birds, or bands of gorillas.

RIPARIAN ZONES ENVIRONMENTAL ROLE AND FUNCTION

Riparian zones dissipate stream energy. The meandering curves of a river, combined with vegetation and root systems, dissipate stream energy, which results in less soil erosion and a reduction in flood damage. Sediment is trapped, reducing suspended solids to create less turbid water, replenish soils, and build stream banks. Pollutants are filtered from surface runoff which enhances water quality via biofiltration.

The riparian zones also provide wildlife habitat, increase biodiversity, and provide wildlife corridors, enabling aquatic and riparian organisms to move along river systems avoiding isolated communities. They can provide forage for wildlife and livestock.

They provide native landscape irrigation by extending seasonal or perennial flows of water. Nutrients from terrestrial vegetation [e.g. plant litter and insect drop] is transferred to aquatic food webs. The vegetation surrounding the stream helps to shade the water, mitigating water temperature changes. The vegetation also contributes wood debris to streams which is important to maintaining geomorphology.

From a social aspect, riparian zones contribute to nearby property values through amenity and views, and they improve enjoyment for footpaths and bikeways through supporting foreshoreway networks. Space is created for riparian sports including fishing, swimming and launching for vessels and paddlecraft.

The riparian zone acts as a sacrificial erosion buffer to absorb impacts of factors including climate change, increased runoff from urbanisation and increased boatwake without damaging structures located behind a setback zone.

BRIEF CULTURAL REPORT

TBNC Edgemon Environmentalist, Presevationist of Very Rich Riparian Oak Woodlands at Pala Creek, USA, Environmental Planners, Site Designers & Engineers, Construction Managers & Preservationist

The Pala Band of Mission Indians is located in northern San Diego County, where a majority of the 918 enrolled members live on their 12,273-acre reservation, established for Cupeño and Luiseño Indians, who consider themselves to be one proud people — Pala.

The Cupeños

The word Cupeño is of Spanish derivation, adopting the native place-name Kupa and appending Spanish — "eño" to mean a person who lives in or hails from Kupa. The Cupeños, however, called themselves Kuupangaxwichem, or "people who slept here." The Cupans were one of the smallest native American tribes in Southern California. It is unlikely that they ever numbered more than 1000 in size. They once occupied a territory 10 square miles in diameter in a mountainous region at the headwaters of the San Luis Rey River in the valley of San Jose de Valle.

 

SOVEREIGNTY

Indian tribes existed as sovereign governments long before European settlers arrived in North America. Treaties signed with European nations and later the United States in exchange for land guaranteed the tribes continued recognition and treatment as sovereigns.

Sovereignty is an internationally recognized power of a nation to govern itself. Treaties were agreements between sovereigns that granted peace, alliances, trade, and land rights to the newcomers. Tribal governments used treaties to confirm and retain such rights as the sovereign right of self-government, fishing and hunting rights and jurisdictional rights over their lands. Treaties did not, as is commonly assumed, grant rights to Indians from the United States. Tribes ceded certain rights to the United States and reserved rights they never forfeited.

Tribal sovereignty preceded the development of the United States Constitution. The framers of the Constitution specifically recognized the sovereignty of Indian tribes in Article I, section 8, clause 3 which identified Congress as the governmental branch authorized to regulate commerce with "foreign nations, among the several states, and with the Indian tribes."

The Pechanga Band of Luiseño Indians has called the Temecula valley home for more than 10,000 years. Life on earth began in this valley, Exva Temeeku, the place of the union of Sky— father, and Earth— mother (Tuukumit'pi Tamaayowit). The Temecula Indians (Temeekuyam) lived at Temeekunga— the place of the sun. And 10,000 years from now, tribal elders will share with tribal youth as they do today the story of the tribe's creation.

The payomkowishum, or Luiseño People were nearly destroyed by events and actions from first contact with Spanish Missionaries. Turbulent times continued with the eviction of our tribe from traditional lands in the 1870s. The Pechanga reservation was established by Executive Order of the President of the United States on June 27, 1882, affirming Pechanga Tribal sovereignty and our land-base.

 

 

THE MISSIONARIES

In 1798, Spanish Missionaries founded the Mission of San Luis Rey de Francia, forever altering Luiseño tribal life and pressing the Luiseño people into servitude, slavery or imprisonment. The Roman Catholic Church established ranchos that encompassed the native villages. The newcomer Spanish identified the tribes living in the territory claimed for Mission San Luis Rey as Sanluiseños, or simply, Luiseños.

 

THE GREAT OAK

TBNC Edgemon Environmentalist & Preservationist, Environmental Planners, Site Designers & Engineers and Mnagers of Significant Exiting Very Rich Riparian Oak Woodlands at Pala Creek, California USA Edgemon CSLB 274107

The largest natural-growing, indigenous live oak tree in the United States,
the Great Oak is estimated to be up to 1,500 years old.


The Great Oak is the largest natural-growing, indigenous coast live oak [Quercus agrifolia]) wi'aashal tree in the United States and is estimated to be anywhere from 850 to 1,500 years old, making it one of the oldest oak trees in the world. The tree has been used by countless generations as a gathering place. The Great Oak area, Wi'aasha, is home to numerous culturally sensitive, historical and archaeological sites, including tribal interment sites from time immemorial.

In April 2003, the Pechanga Band of Luiseño Indians had 1,000 acres of land put into federal trust by President Bush in 2002, formerly known as the Great Oak Ranch. The successful effort was a product of bi-partisan support from local, state and federal leaders, including among others, U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer, U.S. Representatives Mary Bono, Darrell Issa, and Dale Kildee, State Senators James L. Brulte and Dennis Hollingsworth, and Assembly Member Bill Leonard.

At one level, it would seem that the tribe had simply added land to its reservation. But to the Pechanga people, the land and the Great Oak is of enormous historical and cultural value. Now that it is once again part of the Pechanga Reservation and its people, the Great Oak will remain a symbol of the Tribe's identity for generations to come.

Originally claimed by Frank Salmons and Associates in March, 1903.  Exploratory work yielded some eighty [80] pounds of gem tourmaline. The Queen immediately became the leading producer of tourmaline in the Pala district during the period 1904 through 1914. With the collapse of the major Chinese market for tourmaline, due to the 1911 overthrow of the Imperial government, the mines soon became uneconomical.

From about 1914 to 1971, the Queen was worked intermittently by high graders, with limited success.

TOURMALINE QUEEN & PALA CHIEF

With success at the Stewart mine, the next project was the Tourmaline Queen. After connecting roadways were established between the two mines, work began in late 1971. Older workings were reopened and examined, providing information for the mine plan and new theories regarding the location of mineral-rich zones for study. A successful period followed, with approximately 1500 feet of underground workings developed in a little over three years.

Among the many discoveries at the Tourmaline Queen, one stands out—the “Blue Cap Pocket,” which was later referred to as the find of the century by Dr. Vincent Manson, then-curator of the American Museum of Natural History.

Although underground tunnel footage production is commonly looked at in “tonnage” or “footage” per day, mining top-quality mineral specimens and gem material is a completely different form of tunneling. The smallest fracture or imperfection can reduce the value of the product. Therefore, the technique used requires a pace set to eliminate any disturbance to the crystals, and footage becomes secondary to careful tunneling.

 

 

 

Since the use of explosives is the primary cause of damage, a great deal of experience is needed in this type of mining, with smaller crews preferred over larger production methods. Pala’s safety record reflects its expertise in this type of mining, with the continuous awards [1989–1993] of the Certificate of Honor, Joseph A. Holmes Safety Association for no lost time/injuries.

Between the years 1973–74, Pala International expanded its mining operations to include two full-time crews. This expansion allowed for the exploration of other areas in the district, as well as working on the Pala Chief mine, the San Pedro mine, and the Canyon Diggings mine. These mines presented a different challenge, in that most of the mining was surface work, with several hundred feet of tunnel developed. A joint venture mining project worked the Senpe, Anita, and Little Three mines with moderate success over the next five years. These successes were in addition to continuous mining in the Stewart and Tourmaline Queen mines.

 

BRIEF TOURMALINE DESCRIPTION


STUDY CREDIT

Tourmaline is a crystal boron silicate mineral compounded with elements such as aluminium, iron, magnesium, sodium, lithium, or potassium. Tourmaline is classified as a semi-precious stone and the gem comes in a wide variety of colors. The name comes from the Sinhalese word "Thuramali" or "Thoramalli", which applied to different gemstones found in Sri Lanka.

Some fine gems and specimen material has been produced in the United States, with the first discoveries in 1822, in the state of Maine.

California became a large producer of tourmaline in the early 1900s. The Maine deposits tend to produce crystals in raspberry pink-red as well as minty greens. The California deposits are known for bright pinks, as well as bicolors.

During the early 1900s, Maine and California were the world's largest producers of gem tourmalines. The Empress Dowager Tz'u Hsi of China loved pink tourmaline and bought large quantities for gemstones and carvings from the then new Himalaya Mine, located in San Diego County, California. It is not clear when the first tourmaline was found in California.

Native Americans have used pink and green tourmaline as funeral gifts for centuries. The first documented case was in 1890 when Charles Russel Orcutt found pink tourmaline at what later became the Stewart Mine at Pala, San Diego.

 

TOURMALINE PHYSICAL PROPERTIES

Tourmaline Crystal Structure

Tourmaline belongs to the trigonal crystal system and occurs as long, slender to thick prismatic and columnar crystals that are usually triangular in cross-section. The style of termination at the ends of crystals is asymmetrical, called hemimorphism. Small slender prismatic crystals are common in a fine-grained granite called aplite, often forming radial daisy-like patterns. Tourmaline is distinguished by its three-sided prisms; no other common mineral has three sides. Prisms faces often have heavy vertical striations that produce a rounded triangular effect. Tourmaline is rarely perfectly euhedral. An exception was the fine dravite tourmalines of Yinnietharra, in western Australia. The deposit was discovered in the 1970s, but is now exhausted. All hemimorphic crystals are piezoelectric, and are often pyroelectric as well.

Tourmaline Color

Tourmaline has a variety of colors. Usually, iron-rich tourmalines are black to bluish-black to deep brown, while magnesium-rich varieties are brown to yellow, and lithium-rich tourmalines are almost any color: blue, green, red, yellow, pink, etc. Rarely, it is colorless. Bi-colored and multicolored crystals are common, reflecting variations of fluid chemistry during crystallization. Crystals may be green at one end and pink at the other, or green on the outside and pink inside; this type is called watermelon tourmaline. Some forms of tourmaline are dichroic, in that they change color when viewed from different directions.

Physics explains color in terms of the wavelength of radiation. A spectrograph that only identifies the position of spectral lines will perfectly differentiate between a radiation at 0.530 μm and another at 0.532 μm, where our eyes will only perceive the same green.

The pink color of tourmalines from many fields is the result of a continued natural irradiation. During their growth, these tourmalines incorporate Mn2+, whereas initially they are by nature very pale. Their granitic environment exposes to them a natural gamma ray exposure due to radioactive decay of 40K, causing the gradual formation of the Mn3+ ions responsible for a pink to red color.

 

Tourmaline Geology

Tourmaline is found in two main geological occurrences. Igneous rocks, in particular granite and granite pegmatite and in metamorphic rocks such as schist and marble. Schorl and lithium-rich tourmalines are usually found in granite and granite pegmatite. Magnesium-rich tourmalines, dravites, are generally restricted to schists and marble. Tourmaline is a durable mineral and can be found in minor amounts as grains in sandstone and conglomerate, and is part of the ZTR index for highly-weathered sediments.

CONCURRENT DISCUSSION

Beginning sometime in the early 1950's, substantial portions of the upper underground inclines, and to a lesser extent the workings further down dip, were subjected to pegmatite support pillar removal or “high-grading” by numerous unauthorized individuals. These rogue miners in search of gems used methods ranging from simple hand tools to actual drilling and rock-blasting. The tell-tale debris and backfilling from these illegal ventures greatly contributed to the degradation of the underground workings, continuing intermittently until the early 1990's. Some hobbyists went as far as to construct large shakers and screening devices which were packed in and assembled on site - used to recover valuable tourmaline crystals buried within the dumps. Sadly, vandals eventually destroyed the old structures and early mining equipment.

The San Diego Mining Company [SDMC] began a program of surface reconnaissance and detailed underground mapping of the old Tourmaline King mine workings in 1998. Work occurred intermittently throughout the months of October, November and December, with considerable time being spent defining the areas of greatest historic yield. Persistent screening of the brush-covered mine dumps continued well into the 21st Century. One individual accounted his 20 year career of occasional weekend trips - recovering nearly twenty [20] kilograms of fine commercial-grade tourmaline crystals suitable for faceting clean and colorful gems in calibrated sizes. As a result of other interviews and admissions, it is estimated that "weekenders" removed well over one hundred [100] kilograms of tourmaline crystals and segments from the property in this manner.

Negotiations with the surviving relatives of R. M. Wilke between 1998 and 2002 by SDMC ultimately resulted in the purchase of the patent grant deed to the Tourmaline King lode.

A surface development and underground exploration program by SDMC commenced early October of 2002. The event was marked by the delivery of a new Hitachi ZX800 hydraulic excavator from Japan - to be used for roadway redevelopment and portal reconditioning required by federal and state mine safety regulations. Within 3 weeks nearly 1600 linear feet of bermed roadway was completed by the crew, providing safe vehicular access to the old upper workings by contouring along the original northeast access trail as it meanders westward across the adjacent land of the Pala Band of Mission Indians and Tourmaline Queen mine property.

Remote sensing has confirmed the Tourmaline King lode is continuous and traceable along the surface for a minimum distance of 2000 linear feet. Underground inspections by SDMC indicate that the deposit remains continuous down dip and along strike as exposed within the outer margins of the deepest workings. Small amounts of gem and specimen quality pink green and blue tourmaline [elbaite (vars. rubellite, verdelite, indicolite)], pink beryl (var. morganite), and red to orange garnet [specs. almandine, spessartine] have been collected from remaining sections of previously exploited pocket areas within the pegmatite as exposed in the old underground workings, which have since become inaccessible due to near surface caving.

Observations and physical data collected by the SDMC indicate another large fault/fracture related country rock anomaly located approximately six hundred [600] linear feet south from the deepest existing underground working face.

 

 

 
 
 

ON SITE WASTE WATER TREATMENT PLANT [WWTP]  ·  CONCEPTUAL SITE PLANNING & DRAFT ENGINEERING

Waste Water [sewage] Treatment, or domestic sewerage treatment, is the process of removing contaminants from wastewater and household sewage, both runoff [effluents] and domestic. It includes physical, chemical, and biological processes to remove physical, chemical and biological contaminants. Its objective is to produce an environmentally-safe fluid waste stream [or treated effluent] and a solid waste [or treated sludge] suitable for disposal or reuse [usually as farm fertilizer].

Using advanced technology it is now possible to re-use sewage effluent for drinking water, although Singapore is the only country to implement such technology on a production scale in its production of New Water.

SAN DIEGO COUNTY   ·   CALIFORNIA   ·   UNITED STATES OF AMERCA


STUDY CREDIT

San Diego County is a large county located in the southwestern corner of the US State of California. It is the southwestern most county in the forty-eight [48] contiguous United States.

Its county seat and largest city is San Diego. The county's population was about 2,813,835 in the 2000 U.S. Census. According to the 2010 U.S. Census, San Diego County had a population of 3,095,313 people, making it the second-most-populous county in California, just behind Los Angeles County.

Its population in 2009 was estimated at 3,208,466, making it the fifth [5th] most-populous county in the United States and giving it a population greater than twenty [20] of the fifty [50] U.S. States.

San Diego County has seventy [70] miles [110 km] of coastline. It has a mild Mediterranean to semi-arid climate. Also in this county are sixteen [16] significant naval and military locations of the United States Navy, U.S. Marine Corps and the U.S. Coast Guard, including Naval Base San Diego, Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, and Naval Air Station North Island.

San Diego County defines the metropolitan statistical area of San Diego-Carlsbad-San Marcos, and in its metropolitan capacity is also known as Greater San Diego.

In addition, San Diego County is part of the San Diego–Tijuana metropolitan area, an area with above five million [5,000,000] people and the largest bi-national metropolitan area shared between the United States and Mexico. Arising from an effort by the state government to identify regional economies, San Diego County and Imperial County are part of the Southern Border Region, one of nine [9] such regions. As a regional economy, the Southern Border Region is the smallest but most economically diverse region in the state, though the two counties maintain weak relations and have little in common, aside from their border proximity.

San Diego County extends south all the way to the Mexican border, which is also the northern border of the State of Baja California and the northern municipal limits of Tijuana Municipality and Tecate Municipality. San Diego County is bordered by Orange County and Riverside County on its north, by Imperial County on its east, and the Pacific Ocean on its west and southwest.

The area which is now San Diego County has been inhabited for more than 10,000 years by Kumeyaay [also called Diegueño], Luiseño, Cupeño and Cahuilla Indians.

European settlement in what is now San Diego County began with the founding of the San Diego Presidio and Mission San Diego de Alcalá by Spanish soldiers and clerics in 1769. This county was part of Alta California under the Viceroyalty of New Spain until the Mexican revolution. From 1821 through 1848 this area was part of Mexico.

San Diego County became part of the United States as a result of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo in 1848, ending the U.S.-Mexican War. This treaty designated the new border as terminating at a point on the Pacific Ocean coast which would result in the border passing one Spanish league south of the southernmost portion of San Diego Bay, thus ensuring that the United States received all of this natural harbor.

San Diego County was one of the original counties of California, and it was created at the time of California statehood in 1850. San Diego County was named for San Diego Bay, which had been renamed in 1602 by Sebastián Vizcaíno in honor of the Franciscan St. Didacus of Alcalá, known in Spanish as San Diego de Alcalá de Henares, and whose name was borne by Vizcaíno's flagship.

At the time of its establishment in 1850, San Diego County was relatively large, and included all of southernmost California which was south and east of Los Angeles County. As such it included areas of what are now Inyo County and San Bernardino County, as well as all of what is now Riverside County and Imperial County.

During the later part of the 19th century, there were numerous changes in the boundaries of San Diego County, when various areas became separated for the counties mentioned above. The most recent changes were the establishments of Riverside County in 1893 and Imperial County in 1907. Imperial County was also the last county to be established in California, and after this division, San Diego no longer extended from the Pacific Ocean to the Colorado River, and it no longer covered the entire border between California and Mexico.

ENVIRONMENTAL PLANNING

Environmental Planning concerns itself with the decision making processes where they are required for managing relationships that exist within and between natural systems and human systems. Environmental Planning endeavours to manage these processes in an effective, orderly, transparent and equitable manner for the benefit of all constituents within such systems for the present and for the future. Present day Environmental Planning Practices are the result of continuous refinement and expansion of the scope of such decision making processes.

Some of the main elements of present day environmental planning are:

Social & Economic Development / Urban Development & Redevelopment / Regional Development / Natural Resource Management & Integrated Land Use / Infrastructure and Intermodal Interconnectivity Systems / Governance Framework

The environmental planning assessments encompass areas such as land use, socioeconomics, transportation, economic and housing characteristics, air quality and air pollution, noise pollution, the wetlands, habitat of the endangered species, flood zones susceptibility, coastal zones erosion, and visual studies among others, and is referred to as an Integrated Environmental Planning Assessment [IEPA].

In the United States, for any project, environmental planners deal with a full range of environmental regulations from federal to state and city levels, administered federally by the Environmental Protection Agency [EPA].

A rigorous environmental process has to be undertaken to examine the impacts and possible mitigation of any construction project. Depending on the scale and impact of the project, an extensive environmental review is known as an Environmental Impact Statement [EIS], and the less extensive version is Environmental Assessment [EA]. Procedures follow guidelines from National Environmental Policy Act [NEPA], State Environmental Quality Review Act [SEQRA] and/or City Environmental Quality Review [CEQR], and other related federal or state agencies published regulations.

The Association of Environmental Professionals (AEP) is a non-profit organization of interdisciplinary professionals including environmental science, resource management, environmental planning and other professions contributing to this field. AEP is the first organization of its kind in the USA, and its influence and model have spawned numerous other regional organizations throughout the United States. Its mission is to improve the technical skills of members, and the organization is dedicated to "the enhancement, maintenance and protection of the natural and human environment". From inception in the mid 1970s the organization has been closely linked with the maintenance of the California Environmental Quality Act [CEQA], due to California being one of the first states to adopt a comprehensive legal framework to govern the environmental review of public policy and project review.
