Mt Laguna Update,

I wanted to take this opportunity to pass along an update as to the current happenings concerning our Shrine Camp.
Clean up is underway and our contractor is hard at work. The camp is closed during this process so please do not attempt to enter the camp until the cleanup is completed. Estimate for the completion is the third week of April, but this could be influenced by weather and other events.

We have been in contact with representatives of the U.S. Dept. of Forestry and met with them a couple of weeks ago. The meeting was held at their offices in Ranch Bernardo and included Will Metz, Donn Christiansen, Debbie Hobbs, and our attorneys from SheppardMullin who are assisting us with the lease negotiations. Our priorities in working with the Forestry at this time are to complete clean up, assist those who were spared with access to water, and obtaining permission to conduct our Memorial Day Celebration on the mountain, all of which were warmly received during our meeting. The meeting went very well and Supervisor Metz concluded the meeting by stating what a great meeting and we look forward to continuing the work to get you back on the mountain. We are still awaiting the Forestry's hydrology report which could influence the rebuilding effort. As soon as it becomes available we hope to have a better sense of what our future footprint may look like.

I want to thank the hard work and many hours our volunteers have been contributing in our several sub committees including, Clean Up, Rebuilding at the current site, Alternative locations, Insurance Negotiations, and Survivor Accessibility.

Pictures from the fire can be found here.

At this time the Camp remains CLOSED.
