As more and more visitors come to Big Bear to enjoy a mountain vacation, the impact is felt by full-time residents. And it’s not always good. Trash, traffic and trespassing are the three “Ts” of complaints most often heard by Valley residents as soon as the snow flies.
Julie Dawson decided to be proactive last year by forming the grassroots group, Community Advocates of Big Bear. This winter, the group, better known as CABB, set its anti-litter campaign in motion with stickers and a public awareness campaign.
What’s less known is CABB’s no trespassing campaign. CABB has made no trespassing signs available to the public this year. It is strictly for residential use, Dawson said.
“This sign is designed for private property owners to use as a deterrent for the behaviors listed,” Dawson said. “Technically the owner of a residential property does not even have to post a sign to call the tow company to have an illegally parked vehicle removed. If a property owner calls the sheriff on trespassers, they will likely get a warning. If they refuse to leave, or return, then they can be fined and charged. It is actually a misdemeanor to tamper with or destroy these signs.”
