The reservoirs known as El Casco Lake in San Timoteo Canyon are part of a plan being considered by the Riverside County Regional Park and Open-Space District, and the district's advisory commission will consider a step in the plan at a meeting Thursday in Murrieta.
The fenced reservoirs are just west of the San Timoteo Canyon Schoolhouse and the reservoirs at Fisherman's Retreat.
The commission has 11 members who represent Riverside County's supervisors and their districts, according to the park district's website.
On Thursday, the commission will be asked to approve an memorandum of understanding between the park district and the Riverside Land Conservancy "to work cooperatively to develop and further the concept and ideas for El Casco Regional Park," according to meeting agenda.
The park district and the land conservancy "seek to cooperate, participate and promote the future development of a regional park in the El Casco area of San Timoteo Canyon in Western Riverside County," the memorandum of understanding states.
A pdf copy of the five-page memorandum is attached to this report.
San Timoteo Canyon was once considered part of San Bernardino County, before the formation of Riverside County. Its history includes ties to Redlands and Beaumont, and the area still has a Redlands zip code.
The meeting is scheduled 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday Jan. 10 at the Santa Rosa Plateau Ecological Reserve visitors center, 39400 Clinton Keith Road, Murrieta, Rob Hicks of the ecological reserve said Wednesday in a phone interview.
