There have been no public forums, informational hearings or opportunities for concerned citizens to ask about the drone test sites, nor has there been any venue to express concerns and public input. In fact, many area residents do not even know that this proposal is being considered.
'Bac k Country Voices' offers public forums to address questions and concerns regarding drones in the back country. BCV has invited knowledgeable drone experts, politicians on both sides of the aisle, firefighters, environmentalist, and others, to present the pros & cons of San Diego being a 'National Testing Site for Drones.'

'Back Country Voices' has scheduled two public meetings, Nov. 11th, at 6:00 p.m., and Dec. 4th, 7:00 p.m., in Julian, CA.
It was recently noted (September 24) in the UT San Diego, KPBS, and several news channels, that the 5 San Diego County Supervisors voted unanimously to approve San Diego back country as one of the 6 proposed 'National Drone Test Sites' to be determined by the FAA in December, 2013.

Concerned residents of San Diego County have joined together to form a citizens action group, ‘Back Country Voices.’ The BCV will provide the necessary public outreach and education to better address the ramifications of a ‘National Drone Testing Site’ in our back country.
