The Golden Hills Community Service District invites comments from the public regarding any additional facilities or activities that the district may provide.
An online video explains that the district is exploring options for the use of the 187 acres it purchased in 2015. The land was once a golf course and has become Golden Hills Nature Park.
According to the video, a third party has expressed interest in purchasing the district headquarters and maintenance shop on Reeves Street. The sale of this property could free up capital to allow the development of a community center and new offices elsewhere in the neighborhood.
Speaking in the video, Patrick Boyd, landscape architect at Design Lab 252. The company was hired to assess potential relocation sites and Boyd said the initial survey showed the location of the old building. from the country club near the intersection of Country Club Drive and Woodford. Tehachapi Road, as the best of the three options considered.
The 10-question survey examines interest in recreation or recreation programs, level of support for existing amenities, and potential elements of the community center. Respondents are also asked if the district should expand services to include the items needed for a community center and park.
The last question indicates that the funding strategies for the desired improvements have yet to be determined, but asks for suggestions and also whether respondents would financially support the proposed development of a community center and park.

City to spend $ 14,000 to design grandstand upgrades at rodeo grounds
An assessment of three grandstands at the Tehachapi Event Center and Rodeo Grounds to determine what is needed to permanently install them in accordance with current building codes was approved by Tehachapi City Council at its December 20 meeting.
According to a staff report prepared by Director of Development Services Jay Schlosser, the city granted the Tehachapi Mountain Rodeo association a temporary building permit last summer, so that a new section of stands purchased by the association can be used.
Two older grandstand sections have been in place for some time and are owned by the city, Schlosser said.
A company specializing in grandstands, DH Charles Engineering Inc., will be hired to evaluate the three grandstands and prepare a modernization design to bring them up to standard.
The design budget is $ 22,000, Schlosser noted, and the rodeo association has agreed to pay one-third of that expense. He said the city’s share ($ 14,677) is not budgeted and would be taken from the city’s 030 fund with a budget amendment added during the mid-year review.
The expense item was on the meeting’s agenda and approved by the board in a 4-0 vote, without comment or discussion. Councilor Susan Wiggins was absent.
