Stop High $ Developers from coming to Sage!
KEEP SAGE RURAL
We would like to inform everyone about the Sage Town Hall Association, and explain to you why this is such an important endeavor!
The Sage Town Hall Association is a non-profit 501c3 organization that was formed in 2017 by a group of residents that were concerned with the lack of a unified voice in Sage. This group sought to help address the issues and concerns that faced the community. As an association, some of the things that we do are: advocate for identification and preservation of historical sites, work towards protection of local environment and wildlife habitat, and attempt to prevent community deterioration. When issues arise that may impact Sage and its residents, the Association serves as an organized unit that can be contacted by government agencies or private parties. We attempt to effectively communicate with, give and receive community input and feedback to, and generally represent the best interests of Sage to these parties. As such, the Association was recently contacted regarding a 412 parcel of land, adjacent to Old Sage Road. The owner of this acreage is seeking to amend the general plan and subsequently re-zone the property from open space and rural residential to medium density housing and commercial retail. This re-zoning would allow the construction of the developer’s proposed Diamond Valley Estates project. The project includes a hotel, college, tourism center, retail shopping, and higher-density housing and much more on 412 acres of land adjacent to Old Sage Road.
The Association has been working non-stop to assure that the voices of Sage are heard. However, we cannot officially represent your voice, to our county supervisors or any other entities unless you become a voting member. The Sage Town Hall Association will be holding meetings to listen to the concerns, hear arguments both in favor and opposed, and receive general feedback on not only this development, but any other issues that need community attention or representation. Our voice will become much louder, stronger, and powerful with each member that joins us. Our board members receive no salary or compensation. All membership fees and donations are used only for Association expenses such as signs, flyers, supplies, event and fund-raiser set up, etc. Memberships are only $10 and are open to any resident of Sage and Diamond Valley 18 years or older. Membership gives you voting rights, both in board elections and community meetings. It also adds you to our e-mail list, which we use to keep everyone informed of any issues, events, meetings, or important news. This is a time when we will truly will find strength in numbers.
Please visit our website or Facebook page if you would like more information on either the Association or the proposed development, and feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.
