The Yucca Valley Town Council met in regular session last night. Managing Editor Tami Roleff says an appeal against a permit for well-known artist’s studio was denied….
The sole action item on the agenda at last night’s meeting of the Yucca Valley Town Council was an appeal of granting a home occupation permit to David Falossi for his home-based stone sculpture business. The council members denied the appeal, allowing Falossi to continue with his art studio, but changed the permit period to annually. In other business, during public comment Sue Tsuda, representing the Center for Healthy Generations, presented the Town with a check for $250. She explained that the Town had made a grant of $6,000 to the Center for half the cost of repairing the Center’s roof. The repair came in at $500 less than the estimated cost of $12,000, so the Center was returning half of the savings, or $250. Council members remarked that it was a first that money had been returned to the Town, and indicated that they plan to return the money to the Center at its next meeting.
