Bonelli Park R11 Walkway Closure

When the Covid-19 closures began back in March 2020, the County of Los Angeles required Bonelli Bluffs RV Park to close as well. This led to a temporary closure of what is known as the R11 Walkway, which allowed members of the public to complete an uninterrupted loop around Puddingstone Lake at Bonelli Park. Since March, that temporary closure became permanent, upsetting hundreds of local residents and users of the path. In this episode, I speak with Crystal DeMott, a San Dimas resident who reached out to Bonelli Bluffs and the County. Listen to this episode to learn how she used her voice and how the necessary stakeholders are now working toward a resolution to benefit all parties involved.
