Signal Hill Vice Mayor Ed Wilson has been reappointed to the San Gabriel and Lower Los Angeles Rivers and Mountains Conservancy (RMC), which was created by the California legislature in 1999. The RMC is one of 10 conservancies within the California Resources Agency. Its mission is to preserve open space and habitat in order to provide for low-impact recreation and educational uses, wildlife habitat restoration and protection, and watershed improvements.
RMC’s territory covers eastern Los Angeles County and western Orange County.
The governing board is composed of 13 voting and seven non-voting members who are appointed or are designated by virtue of the office they hold, at local, state and federal levels. The Conservancy has no power of condemnation or authority over city zoning laws. The RMC has provided over $50 million in grants for open-space acquisition and restoration, according to Wilson.
Wilson was initially appointed to the RMC by then California State Assembly Speaker Herb Wesson in 2003. He was reappointed by Speaker Karen Bass and most recently by Speaker John Perez.
