The development of the new park on the proposed relocation site is very near to going to the County Board of Supervisors for review. A 30 day public review period will take place in Early 2013 and will include an opportunity for local residents to attend an “Open House” style public meeting at which the public may review the draft environmental document, view the scale model and renderings, and ask questions of project designers and County staff.
The Zoo relocation project has been a long time collaborative effort of the County Board of Supervisors, Special Districts Department, Park District Administration, Zoo Administration, and Friends of the Big Bear Alpine Zoo. The proposed relocation, if approved, will enhance the facility in hundreds of ways, and most specifically improve size and quality of inhabitant enclosures, health and welfare of each animal, rehabilitation and release capability, facility awareness, education, and overall visitorship. We hope you’ll join us by supporting this exciting endeavor.
