HISTORY OF TEHACHAPI The Tehachapi community (Greater Tehachapi) is a mountain valley district including 50,000 acres of level land, embracing the Tehachapi, Brite, Cummings and Bear valleys, all with altitudes near 4,000 feet. The first known people to occupy the Tehachapi area were the American Indians known as the Kawaiisu (or, as they called themselves, Nu-oo-ah, meaning the People.) The first permanent white settlers were John Moore and Amanda Brite, who came to the Tehachapi Valley in the fall of 1854 from Texas and three years later moved to Brite Valley, which bears their name. Other settlers like Grant P. Cuddeback, George Cummings and William C. Wiggins soon arrived on the scene and began raising cattle, hay and grain. They also developed a lumber trade. Miners such as Peter D. Greene and John Hendrickson drifted into the Tehachapis and did some gold mining, but the real “gold” was found in the limestone deposits of the area. Kilns were soon built to burn the lime. A small community known as Williamsburg sprung up in the area of the present Golden Hills in the 1860s. For a time this community was also known as Tehichipa. Another town site was established by P.D. Greene. This second site was known as Greenwich and was

located several miles east of Williamsburg/ Tehichipa. In 1876, the Southern Pacific Railroad came to the Tehachapi Valley and laid out its own town site named Tehachapi. Eventually, the businesses and people moved to Tehachapi and the former communities faded away. The railroad engineers needed a long, level region at the top of the climb suitable for switching engines and rail cars. Such land was available at and near the Tehachapi site, and the summit about two miles east of the depot. The famed Tehachapi Loop made it possible for the trains to climb from the San Joaquin Valley and proceed through Tehachapi to Mojave, Los Angeles, Barstow and other eastern destinations. Much of the soil in the local valleys is a rich, decomposed granite and vegetable silt, deep and wonderfully productive. Old publications describe Tehachapi as “A location par excellence for the fruit grower.” Orchard production and agriculture began to flourish and the cement industry became a vital economic asset of the new community. These operations still continue. In addition, the persistent winds through the Tehachapi Pass have enabled nearby wind farms to become one of the world’s leading producers of electrical power from wind energy. In 1909, the Tehachapi settlement was incorporated, and the town of Tehachapi

was legally established. An act of the state legislature changed the town’s official name to city of Tehachapi in 1946. In 1932, the first state women’s prison was built in Cummings Valley. A 7.7 earthquake in 1952 did major damage to the city, including the prison. The inmates were moved to Frontera. In 1953, the state repaired the facility and made it a branch of the California Institution for Men at Chino. In the mid-1960s, a new medium security facility was built at Tehachapi. In the mid1980s, two maximum security prisons were constructed. In 1998, the prison, now known as the California Correctional Institution (CCI), was annexed into the city. CCI is currently the largest employer in the region, with almost 1,700 persons on its payroll. The building of Highways 58 and 14 placed Tehachapi within a one-hour commute of Bakersfield, Lancaster and Edwards Air Force Base. Because of a favorable climate, many working in these other areas wished to live near Tehachapi. This led to the development of the nearby communities of Golden Hills, Bear Valley Springs, Stallion Springs and Sand Canyon. Today, when one says Greater Tehachapi, it includes all these additional communities and many more county residents as well.

Some historical facts about Tehachapi… • Was the first settlement to celebrate the Fourth of July in Kern County

HERITAGE

• Was at the confluence of five rivers, millions of years ago • Is the location of fiver major global air currents • Has been the training grounds for many pilots and astronauts

The Tehachapi Museum is housed in the circa 1931 art deco building originilly built to house a branch of the Kern County Library.

THE TEHACHAPI HERITAGE LEAGUE MUSEUM The Tehachapi area has an extraordinarily rich past that spans the story of the American West from pre-history, Native American culture, early exploration by mountain men, padres, the Spanish ranchers and cowboys, through mining, railroading, farming, ranching, early aviation, wind energy and more, including the historic California Gold Rush. The Tehachapi Museum tells Tehachapi’s wonderful stories. Old-timers and newcomers alike come to hear, see, and touch the stories that make a community unique, stories that enrich people with the knowledge, humor and grit that created this community and inform its future. The oldest house in town, the Errea House Museum, is located across the street at 310 S. Green Street. It is named for a Spanish Basque family who lived there for over 70 years. It is

open during regular museum hours as a house museum showing a working class family’s way of life, circa 1900 to 1930. A brochure for a Walking Tour of historic buildings and homes is available at the Chamber as well as the Museum. The 1 to 1½ hour walking tour lets you see up close the small town charm of Tehachapi and passes by small downtown businesses where you can stop for refreshments or to shop with small town merchants. The newly renovated Tehachapi Museum is chock-full of items that will spark the imagination. You will find the femur of a mammoth (from the Ice Age), opium tins (from the railroad construction camps of the 1870s), a textile gallery that features clothing and household items, fossilized sharks teeth and a recreated blacksmith shop, complete with a one-horse drawn buggy. Photos show the devastation of on of the most powerful earthquakes in U.S. history, which virtually destroyed Tehachapi. You will see the actual mercantile store clock on display, that stopped at the exact time of the 1952 quake and that’s probably as close as you’ll want to get to that piece of our history. Photos show herds of sheep and cattle on Curry Street, being driven to the railroad stockyards. In a new addition to the Museum, the Mark and Jessie Milano Gallery houses an informative exhibition that showcases the history and culture of the Kawaiisu tribe, the Native Americans who inhabited this area for thousands of years before the coming of the white settlers and explorers.

One of many focused exhibits, this view shows a display on the history of schools and churches in Tehachapi.

There are changing artifacts and photos exhibited on a regular basis, and always something different to see. Organizations and tour groups are welcome; please call if you wish a special tour outside regular operating hours. In addition, special tours can be arranged for any age school group.

THE HISTORIC ERREA HOUSE

The Tehachapi Heritage League purchased the Errea House in 1999 and has since worked to raise funds for its renovation. A new roof, repairs to the foundation and porch, air conditioning and heat, rewiring and a newly refurbished kitchen were completed last year. The 1920s kitchen has just been refurbished with linoleum, wood wainscoting and reproduction wallpaper. It contains many vintage items from local donors and cabinets from a local farmhouse.

HERITAGE

The charming Errea House Museum, at 311 S. Green Street, is the oldest house in Tehachapi. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, it takes its name from the Errea family, whose Basque immigrants and descendents lived in the house for many decades. The Errea House was constructed in the 1870s in the original town site of Williamsburg or Tehichipa, in the Old Town area. It was moved to its present location on log rollers around 1900, after the railroad chose a route through what is the current city of Tehachapi. The Errea House kitchen has been restored to its 1920’s charm.

Additional improvements have been made recently in the parlour and the bedrooms. The Errea House is currently open during regular museum hours and for special occasions. Tehachapi’s only public garden, the old – fashioned 1900-era Errea Garden is also open to the public during daylight hours. The restored Errea House is a window to the past, depicting the lifestyle of a working-class family living in Tehachapi during the 1900s to the early 1930s. In addition to the ongoing renovations, which take place as funds become available, the Heritage League also accepts donations of clothing and furnishings to be used to furnish the Errea House as a Historical House Museum.

The Errea House, the front porch, and the Errea Garden can be rented for private functions. For more information on the use of the Errea House, please call Charles White at 661-972-0958.

The Errea House portrays the rural life found in a small California ranching and agricultural town, circa 1900 to 1930. The Errea Garden is open during all daylight hours and is the only public garden in Tehachapi, featuring colorful views, year round.

HERITAGE

THE TEHACHAPI DEPOT RAILROAD MUSEUM AND COLLECTION

Garden where the Stokoe Railroad Signal Collection is displayed. The signals have been lovingly restored by volunteers of the Friends of the Tehachapi Depot.

Re-built in 1904 by the Southern Pacific Railroad, the Depot is a standard Southern Pacific Railroad design known as Plan No. 23. Only six depots are left and the Tehachapi Depot is the only one still situated at its original building site. It is also one of the few buildings that remained standing after the 1952 Tehachapi earthquake. The Depot is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

The Museum houses several large collections of historic railroad artifacts, including antique railroad maintenance equipment and tools, dinnerware, signs and other railroadiana, plus stories and photographs of the men and women who built the railroad and whose lives were affected by it.

The Union Pacific Railroad handed keys of the Depot to the City of Tehachapi in 2005. Work began soon thereafter to restore the building to its original condition. On June 13, 2008, with restoration work very nearly complete, tragedy struck and the Depot was completely destroyed by fire. In June 2008, the Tehachapi City Council announced their decision to rebuild. The original floor plans were used to ensure that the new Depot matched the original. Construction was completed in November 2009 and includes a new viewing platform on the north side of the building adjacent to the train tracks. A special feature of the park-style landscaping is the Railroad Signal

The Museum also contains a gift shop with souvenirs, books and memorabilia.

TELLING THE STORY The coming of the railroads changed the entire world overnight. At the time that the railroads first came into public use in the early 1800’s, horseback was the fastest means of personal transportation, and the only way to move heavy items was by ship or slow moving ox-cart. A trip that had previously taken months on uncomfortable and rutty roads now took just days on smooth twin bands of iron, an order of magnitude increase in speed and efficiency. In addition, the railroads fostered numerous innovations that still impact our lives directly. Far from just a collection of artifacts, the Tehachapi Depot Railroad Museum

showcases the impact of the railroad on local history and tells the story of those who built and maintained the road. From the hard working Chinese immigrant laborers who helped construct the tunnels and the loop, to the track men, switch men and maintenance workers that kept the line in good order for the dedicated engineers and firemen, the story of the railroad is vast and touches all walks of life. In the Depot, you will encounter the romance of the rail as it was during the golden age of travel and see how it has remained a vital part of our modern society as part of a supply chain that extends around the world. See a time line of significant events, stories from railroad employees, historic photos, personal artifacts, engineering innovations, models and more. Learn about the histories of people who came with the railroad. Touch and experience history at the Tehachapi Depot Railroad Museum.

HERITAGE

TEHACHAPI LOOP The railroad was built over Tehachapi Pass from Caliente to Mojave in 1876 and is considered an outstanding engineering feat. The track climbs 3,600 feet in 50 track miles from Bakersfield to Tehachapi using “S” curves back and forth up the Tehachapi Creek watershed. At one point just above Keene, the engineer, William Hood, built a large continuous curve which brought the track back over itself and has become known as the Tehachapi Loop. This

engineering marvel has become famous among rail fans from all over the world. In 1998, the entire Tehachapi Pass Rail Line was honored by the American Society of Civil Engineers as a National Civil Engineering Historic Landmark because it has been in continuous use for more than 120 years with little or no modification. The best viewing locations are along Woodford-Tehachapi Road either southeast from Keene or northwest of Old Towne Tehachapi.

PRCA RODEO …50 YEARS N STILL BUCKIN STRONG Celebrating 50 years of providing our community and the surrounding communities of Kern County with quality rodeo entertainment the Tehachapi Mountain Rodeo Association announces our 2013 PRCA rodeo held on Friday, August 16th at 7:00 p.m. and Saturday, August 17th at 6:00 p.m. at the Tehachapi Event Center and Rodeo Grounds at 601 South Dennison Road. Cowboys from across the country will come to compete for points toward the PRCA finals and big cash payout purses in grueling events like bronc riding, steer wrestling, team roping and bull riding. Lighting fast Cowgirls will be taking razor sharp turns around the barrels down to the finish line. The adrenaline will be pumping as bullfighters and barrel men will serve as bodyguards for bull riders aboard the muscle and fury of a 2000-pound bull for a wild 8-second ride. Once again, Salt River Rodeo Co. will provide world-class stock that will be bucking hard and kicking high to assure plenty of rodeo excitement. The gates open 2 hours early so our rodeo fans can pick a seat on our wonderful new arena bleachers where every spot affords our viewers with great rodeo action. The TMRA PRCA Rodeo is held in conjunction with the annual Tehachapi Mountain Festival. Both events promise action packed activities full of family fun. We will again feature a dance after the rodeo benefiting a local children’s cancer foundation, Small Miracles. The price for the dance is $10 and all proceeds will go directly to Small Miracles. The Tehachapi Rodeo began as a youth rodeo

and evolved into an adult amateur rodeo. In 1985, the rodeo joined the ranks of what now includes over 900 rodeos in 48 states and 4 Canadian Provinces as a pro rodeo sanctioned by the PRCA (Professional Rodeo Cowboy’s Association) and is celebrating its 18th year as a Ram Truck sponsored Rodeo. Our association boasts a large group of truly committed volunteers who spent countless hours to create an event that provides quality family style entertainment at affordable prices. We are motivated by a deep love for the community, the sport of professional rodeo, our desire to showcase true Western Americana celebrating the “Western Way of Life”.

The tickets for the Rodeo can be purchased for a presale $2 discount prior to the day of the rodeo at our local ticket outlets in Tehachapi Albertsons, Hemme Hay and the Tehachapi Chamber of Commerce. The Emporium Western Store in Bakersfield as well as the Boot Barn in both Bakersfield and Lancaster will also have our rodeo tickets for sell.

For more information regarding our 50 Year Celebration of the great sport of rodeo visit our website at www.tehachapiprorodeo. com or follow us on our Facebook page at Tehachapi Mountain Rodeo Association


In 1971 the event was held in conjunction with the July 4th events, but in 1972 was moved back to August. Events included a barbecue, parade, air show and art show. In 1973 the parade included camels for the dignitaries as riders, including Congressman Bill Ketchum as a rider.

When the town’s centennial came in 1976 (celebrating the arrival of the railroad) the event was even bigger, with Congressman Ketchum as grand marshal. Aggie Davis was name Citizen of the Year for her volunteer work “above and beyond the call of duty.” Taking notes from a 1968 Mountain Festival brochure that East Kern Historian Marion Deaver saved, and from a Tehachapi history writings by Aggie Davis we learn that an event to celebrate the community actually began as a fruit festival.

HISTORY OF THE MOUNTAIN FESTIVAL – 50 YEARS IN THE MAKING Susan Wiggins As Tehachapi prepares to celebrate 50 years of the Mountain Festival it is good to take a look back and see how it all began.

New features were added in 1979, including a cow chip throwing contest, fiddlers contest, and donkey baseball!

The name Mountain Fruit Festival was given to the event in September of 1964. It was sponsored by the Tehachapi Businessmen’s Association and involved are service clubs and the city council. One of the goals of the event was to promote the city and its businesses, which would ultimately bring in tourism for the area. Various chairmen served including Kern Davis, Herb Snyder and Barney Perez. The first queen to preside was Rhonda Wright, followed in 1965 by Mary Cazares. The initial budget was $1,100 for the three day festival. In 1967 the event was moved to August, hoping for better weather and better attendance since school was still out. The name was changed to Tehachapi Mountain Festival®, which still remains today. In 1968 the committee decided it would be good to have an air show in addition to the art show, but the committee sought the assistance of the city council and funds were provided for the first air show. The city and the chamber of commerce helped subsidize the events each year. A Little Britches Rodeo was held each year, and events were added to Central Park, with the Tehachapi Theater Group putting on events. Wooden Indians made by inmates at the California Correctional Institute were put there to provide directions to each event.

The parade continued to grow with local bands, equestrian riders, and floats. The rodeo became a huge success, and there were 90 booths in the park that year. 1980 was listed as the biggest and most successful festival to date with over 10,000 visitors in the park, and 100 entries in the parade. When the festival kicks off this August 1618, the Greater Tehachapi Chamber of Commerce will expect well over the 10,000 visitor mark, over 30,000 people will be in attendance for the weekend. In addition to the parades, rodeo, Central Park Craft Show, carnival and other events the downtown and other areas will be packed with tourists and visitors, boosting the local economy and making the festival a success for everyone. Hope we see you there. . .

A carnival and musical revue was added in 1974 in the park, along with a gunfighter show, whiskerino awards, and motorcycle stunt team. Hatchet throws, melodramas, Indians artifact exhibits and cannons firing were added as the years progressed.

MURALS DEPICT TEHACHAPI’S UNIQUE HISTORY The Tehachapi Main Street Murals Committee has been hard at work over the last ten years, raising funds and planning a series of historical murals to showcase the rich history of the Tehachapi Valley. In 2011, the tenth mural will be completed, to cover a wall of Centennial Plaza on Green Street. It will commemorate the historic BeeKay Theatre, a converted 1932 Art Deco movie house that now serves as the home for the Tehachapi Community Theatre (TCT). The murals are meant to beautify the downtown area, showcase the history of the area for local residents, and serve as a historical guide for visitors to Tehachapi. The Murals Committee made a commitment early on to

produce only first quality murals, and Tehachapi now has a wellrespected murals program. The first mural, featuring the world famous Tehachapi Loop, was designed by nationally known trompe l’oeil artist John Pugh, completed with the help of his associate, Mark Spykerbos. The second mural features a street dance held in 1915 when the first electric streetlights were installed in Tehachapi. Phil Slagter, another well-known mural artist used original photos from 1915 to design and paint the mural. Faces of current local residents, and those from the history of Tehachapi were incorporated into the scene. At the time, Slagter lived nearby, in Canyon Country, but has since moved to Montana.

Native American Nuooah or Kawaiisu tribe. It incorporates a village scene from before contact with the white man and portraits around the perimeter show more recent members and elders of the tribe, as well as the type of baskets for which the local Indians were known. At the Apple Shed Restaurant, the T-Hacha-P mural was designed by master artist Art Mortimer, who sketched the mural on the wall to scale and mixed all the paints. Then

Tehachapi was fortunate to have Visalia artist Colleen Mitchell-Veyna to paint “People of the Mountains,” depicting Tehachapi’s

15 local artists did the actual painting in one day, starting at 8 am and continuing until 5 pm. at that time, the scaffolding was whisked away, the area cleaned up, and a dedication was held. Local artist Lyn Bennett designed and painted the Blacksmith Shop mural, taken from an actual photograph of a circa 1900 blacksmith shop, located directly across the street. She was assisted by Brenda Anderline. The Avelino Martinez mural depicts this legendary Tehachapi resident who worked as a groom for the notorious Joaquin Murrieta horse gangs that rounded up stray horses and other livestock to take back to Mexico. Martinez settled in Cummings Valley and lived to be 113 to 115 years old, according to various accounts. It was painted by Patti Doolittle. A mural commemorating the first Air Mail flight from Tehachapi to Bakersfield on May 19, 1938 was painted by Tehachapi artist Mark Pestana at the Green Street site of the Tehachapi Post Office, circa1953 to 1962. It incorporates a cast relief of a proud American

eagle, part of the faรงade, when built in 1953. In 2008 a mural saluting the 100th anniversary of the township of Monolith and the cement plant that gave it its name was completed. The mural depicts the importance of Monolith to the people of Tehachapi. This mural was made possible by a grant from Lehigh Southwest Heidelberg, current owners and operators of the cement plant.

To commemorate the 2009 Centennial of the 1909 incorporation of the town of Tehachapi, a three-panel mural on Tehachapi Boulevard was painted. A brochure of the murals is available at the Chamber office. Other grants, fundraisers, and donations from the building owners, as well as the community, have provided additional funding.

It’s unique East-West position across the base of the Coast Range and Sierra Nevada’s makes the Tehachapi Mountain Pass a funnel for the prevailing winds of California’s San Joaquin Valley. The 4,000 foot rise in elevation and thermal conditions of the Mojave Desert further intensify the areas world famous wind resource. Its 3,624 turbines have an installed capacity of 1583 megawatts of electricity. The projected tax revenues by 2030 will exceed $45 million annually. Tehachapi’s wind is inexhaustible, free and clean. Today, approximately, 500 people are directly employed by the wind industry. Another 1500-2,200 are indirect or induced employment. Because of their modularity, turbines can be built and installed quickly and inexpensively as the requirements grow. Grazing, farming, and recreational land use co-exists on wind farmland. The Tehachapi-Mojave Wind Resource Area has grown rapidly since its first turbine began producing in the early 80’s. An industry that began by installing 65kw turbines is now regularly installing turbines in excess of 3000kw.

THE TEHACHAPI-MOJAVE WIND RESOURCE AREA In 1981, wind was discovered and the Tehachapi-Mojave Wind Resource Area was born. Local Wind Farms developed and pioneered the technology for economically efficient wind energy generation. From these early beginnings, Kern County will soon again, become the leader in wind energy

development and generation. After 20 years of planning, Southern California Edison’s Tehachapi Renewable Transmission Project is nearing its final phase of construction. With 4600 megawatts of capacity, this line is promoting a green revolution for Kern County. Kern County policymakers have set a goal to provide 10,000 megawatts or 10 GW of renewable energy power by 2015. This will create an estimated 8,000 construction jobs, 1,500 operational jobs and up to 25 billion dollars of investment in Kern County’s future. And this future is here today as a trip through Mojave, located in Kern County at the junction of Highway 58 and 14, makes science fiction fact with millions of dollars of wind turbine components being staged at the Mojave Air and Spaceport. The motels in Tehachapi and Mojave are full of construction workers and people are working to bring clean energy online… now.

TOMO-KAHNI STATE HISTORIC PARK

Due to the extremely sensitive nature of the site, Tomo-Kahni is available to the public by tour only. These tours are lead by trained State Park docents on weekends during the spring and fall months. Tours begin with an orientation at the TomoKahni Resource Center at 112 East F Street, Suite B, Tehachapi.

ATTRACTIONS

Nestled atop a ridge in the Tehachapi Mountains, overlooking Sand Canyon to the east and the Tehachapi valley to the west, Tomo-Kahni, or “Winter Village,” was the site of a Kawaiisu (Nuooah) Village. The location was likely chosen for its moderate temperature and plentiful resources. The Kawaiisu migrated from the Great Basin and made the Tehachapi Mountains their home for two to three thousand years. The Kawaiisu are noted for their finely woven baskets of intricate and colorful design.

The moderately strenuous walking tour takes between two to three hours to complete. The overall tour, including orientation and return to the Resource Center, takes about 4 to 5 hours. As Tomo-Kahni is at an elevation of over 4,000 feet, the weather is variable, so layered clothing is crecommended. Water, good walking shoes and sun protection are also necessary. There is a nominal fee for adults and

children. Reservations in advance are required to assure a place on the date chosen. MOJAVE SECTOR OFFICE: (661) 946-6092 TOMO-KAHNI RESOURCE CENTER 117 EAST F STREET, SUITE B TEHACHAPI, CA 93561 (661) 822-3720 HOURS: FRIDAY & SATURDAY 12:00 P.M. – 4:00 P.M.

COMMUNITY

CITY OF TEHACHAPI For decades, people have been living up in Tehachapi but the idea of “living up” isn’t just about our place at 4,000 feet above the ocean waves. Instead, it’s about living in a City where long-term planning and a commitment to excellence are being elevated in importance every day. It’s about enjoying the kind of community where quality of life is always at the top of the priority list. In the City of Tehachapi, living up means creating a City where everyone can reach new heights professionally and personally, as well as mentally and physically. Crafting that kind of place requires fiscal stability, collaborative thinking and a steady approach to improving the public realm. It also means being business friendly. To support new and existing businesses, we have recently added a “Tools for Business” link on its newly redesigned website at www. tehachapicityhall.com. The information provided there will assist businesses with funding programs, business planning, government requirements, business and employer training, and more. The

City

is

also

working

to

better

communicate its mission and share the “Live up” brand by creating a Facebook page. Look us up and “like” us at www.facebook.com/ CityofTehachapi Better communication isn’t the only thing happening in Tehachapi. The newly adopted Event Center and Rodeo Grounds master plan, located on the airport north of the runway, will increase tourism and economic development for the entire Tehachapi region. The master plan includes a covered arena, banquet hall, horse trails, motocross/BBX track, and RV camp sites and other amenities that will attract visitors and residents alike. None of this would be possible without great partnerships. Over the past several years, the City has developed successful partnerships that allow the community to adopt a shared vision of success with each community group or agency all pulling up on the same rope. Some of these partnerships include the Greater Tehachapi Chamber of Commerce, the Greater Tehachapi Economic Development Council, the Tehachapi Heritage League, the Tehachapi Senior Center, Main Street Tehachapi, Tehachapi Mountain Rodeo Association, the Tehachapi Tourism Commission, Tehachapi Community Theatre and others. The future is definitely looking up in Tehachapi. By continuing our tradition of fiscal stability, investing in the public realm and building partnerships, the City of Tehachapi will remain a place where everyone can work up, play up and grow up in every sense of the word.

COMMUNITY

There are approximately 200 existing homes in Alpine Forest, most of which are occupied year round. They are reachable via thirty miles of semi-private roads which are maintained by the Association. The Alpine Forest Park Property Owners’ Association (AFPPOA) was established as a not for profit corporation in 1970 and is comprised of five volunteer Board members who are elected annually. The Association has one full time employee (maintenance) and seven part time employees including an office manager and six security personnel. The annual budget of the Association Is approximately $378,700 and each lot is assessed $350 a year. The Board meets monthly on the Third Saturday of the month and members are urged to attend. The Annual Meeting is held in June followed by a well-attended Bar-B-Q. Schools: Elementary students attend Cummings Valley and Junior and Senior High School Students go to Tehachapi. Wildlife is abundant in Alpine Forest and residents and visitors often see mountain lions, bears, bobcats, coyotes, raccoons, and wild boar and hunting is not allowed. Of course there are also rattle snakes and plenty of “good” snakes and a glance upwards will often let you see condors, eagles, hawks and many smaller birds that frequent the area.

MOUNTAIN MEADOWS COMMUNITY SERVICE DISTRICT The Mountain Meadows Community Service District was formed in 1970, with a threeperson board, by the Kern County Board of Supervisors to maintain the roads within the Mountain Meadows Community. It functioned this way until 1987 when the board members all resigned, as they were unable to obtain liability insurance for the District. In July 1991 the district reformed and became responsible for their own function once again. The district maintains (27) miles of roadways, drop inlets (drainage) and street signs. Formed with 3 elected board of directors, general manager and 7 seasonal part time employees. The office operates 3 days a week (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday) from 8-12 and 1-4. The Board meets on the 3rd Wednesday of each month located at 17980 Highline Road in Tehachapi at 6 PM.

CLIMATE Tehachapi has been fittingly referred to as the “Land of Four Seasons”. The winters are cool and snowfall is typically light. Mother Nature announces spring with an impressive display of poppies, lupines and other wild flowers. Summers are warm and dry and in autumn, leaves change color as the temperature begins to drop. Its world famous wind resource is seldom calm and peaks from February to July. The area wind farms and glider port are just a few ways to harvest the wind.

TEHACHAPI VALLEY HEALTHCARE DISTRICT The Tehachapi Valley Healthcare District (TVHD) is a governmental entity created as a “special district” described under California state law. Special districts are designed to provide a particular function in a specific geographic area and are governed by an elected board of directors. Special districts are independent from city or county governments. Our district was created to provide healthcare services to the Greater Tehachapi area and its surrounding communities. The District oversees the operation of Tehachapi Hospital, a fully licensed and accredited 24-bed Critical Access Hospital offering 24-hour Emergency care, medical acute-care beds, “swing beds” (acute beds which can be used for shortstay long-term care residents), Laboratory, Radiology (including CT, ultrasound and mammography), Cardiopulmonary services, and Rehabilitative Medicine/Physical

New Tehachapi Hospital Groundbreaking, March 28, 2013

Therapy. TVHD also offers three outpatient Family Health Centers located in Tehachapi, Mojave, and California City. These clinics operate Monday through Saturday and accept walk-ins. In response to California’s SB 1953 requirement to seismically retrofit or rebuild acute care hospitals, 80% of the voters in the Greater Tehachapi area chose to pass a general obligation bond in 2004. It provided TVHD with an authorization to raise $15 million towards funding the building of a new hospital. In November 2009, the district’s voters graciously approved an additional $50 million in general obligation bond sales to complete the design and construction of a new state-of-the-art hospital for the Greater Tehachapi Valley area. TVHD has been working diligently with SWA architects, the Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD), medical staff members, hospital employees and dedicated community members to plan and design a new “state-of-the-art” facility for our growing population. The new hospital will provide triple the floor space of our current hospital and 25 private patient rooms to maintain our Critical Access Hospital designation. As the need for additional beds arises, the hospital plans will allow for expansion. Under the current TVHD seismic waiver, the new facility must be substantially completed by January 1, 2015. Construction began on March 28, 2013 with an official groundbreaking ceremony on that date. Completion of the new replacement hospital is scheduled for late 2015 and ready for occupancy in early 2016. We look forward to opening a modern, digitally-integrated hospital that promotes healing and wellness of

our patients and residents, their families and visitors. For more information on TVHD, the Guild of Tehachapi Hospital, or the HighCountry HealthCare Foundation (formerly the Tehachapi Hospital Foundation), please contact Hospital Administration at (661) 823-3000 or visit our web site at www.tvhd. org.

The park is open range land donated to TVRPD by the Monolith Cement Plant in 1963. There is currently no public access to the property, but there are trails and easements that lead to the park area. TVRPD would like to see Jamison Park used in the near future for hiking, camping, trail riding and other open land activities.

The Tehachapi Unified School District encompasses an area of 522 square miles and offers an excellent and diverse educational program to students living within the area. Student enrollment is just slightly over 4,600, serving students in kindergarten through grade twelve. The district operates three elementary schools, one middle school, one comprehensive high school, and one alternative education site which includes a continuation high school, home-based independent study program and adult education. Tehachapi is well known for its diverse and excellent academic and athletic programs. Tehachapi High School (THS) is the single comprehensive high school serving students in the Tehachapi area. Our high school was named a California Distinguished High School in 2009. THS was founded in 1933 and currently houses over 1,200 students. The school moved to its’ new facility at the beginning of the 2003-2004 school year. THS offers a comprehensive educational program for grades nine through twelve as well as co-curricular and extra-curricular opportunities.

The Career Technical Education (CTE) department has nine articulated courses for students to receive college credit. The CTE program provides a variety of “hands-on”

Our continuation high school, Monroe Continuation High School, was recognized as a Model Continuation High School by the California Department of Education in 2012. At this alternative education campus, students are offered individual support and guidance focused on each student graduating and receiving their diploma. Monroe’s goal is to prepare students for the next phase of learning in their lives: military service, vocational training, work experience, or higher education. Jacobsen Middle School houses roughly 1,000 students and consists of a sixth, seventh and eighth grade program. The school involves the staff, students, and the community in maintaining a safe, positive and diverse environment which encourages each student’s potential for excellence by providing a curriculum that promotes respect, responsibility, social development and academic life skills. The elementary schools all offer an articulated educational curriculum, which includes a Character Counts program. All three elementary schools earned an Academic Performance Index (API) score of over 800 last year. In 2010, Golden Hills Elementary was named a California Distinguished School. In 2007, Tompkins Elementary received a Title 1 Academic Achievement Award. Cumming Valley Elementary has achieved an API score of over 800 for the last four years. The elementary students participate in Spelling Bees, Oral Language Festival and Composition Contests. The commitment by the Board of Education, the administration, the teachers and the community ensures that the Tehachapi graduate will be academically prepared and technologically ready for the business world of tomorrow.
