The City of Blythe is conducting an update to its existing Housing Element to address changing housing needs and to conform with State Law. The purpose of the public hearing will be to present the Housing Element Draft to the City Council for comments and recommendations prior to the submission of the draft to the Department of Housing and Community Development (“HCD”) for review.
Any person desiring to comment on the above project may do so in writing or may appear in person at the public hearing. The written comment period will start on June 29, 2022 and end on July 29, 2022. Written comments should be directed to Mallory Crecelius, City Clerk, 235 N.

The City of Blythe, in its capacity as Lead Agency for this project under CEQA, has prepared an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the proposed Edelweiss Sustainable Farms Project ("Project").
Project Description: The Project site encompasses an area of approximately 34 acres within the City of Blythe south of Hobsonway, north of Interstate 10, west of Lovekin Boulevard and east of Defrain Blvd. The property does not have a Postal address at this time, and is located in a portion of the northeast ¼ of the southwest ¼ of Section 31, Township 6 South, Range 23 East, San Bernardino Meridian (USGS Blythe 7.5 minute Quadrangle); and at Latitude 33° 36’ 31” N, Longitude 114° 36’ 59” W (approximate geographic center of the site).
The proposed Project includes development of an indoor cannabis cultivation and processing facility, consisting of twelve buildings and associated infrastructure (retention, driveways, parking, landscaping, a primary gated access point, two emergency access points, and perimeter fencing). The applicant is requesting approval of a Site Plan as the entitlement. The Project also proposes approximately 1,200 linear feet of 8-inch PVC sewer pipes to be placed underground along Hobsonway to connect to existing City sewer infrastructure.
A Public Hearing for this item is scheduled for the City Council on August 9, 2022, beginning at 6:00pm, or as soon thereafter as the matter may be heard, in the Council Chambers at City Hall, 235 N. Broadway, Blythe. An opportunity will be given at said hearing for all interested persons to be heard. Written comments may be submitted to the City Clerk until 4:00 pm on August 9, 2022.
If any group challenges the action in court, issues raised may be limited to only those issues raised at the public hearing described in this notice or in written correspondence at, or prior to the City Council hearing.
