In a complicated $40 million transaction, the State will purchase a 649-acre parcel linking the Chino Hills with the Cleveland National Forrest to create a wildlife corridor. The planned development would have isolated wildlife in the Chino Hills, prompting three years of negotiations between environmentalists and the developer. The deal includes $15 million from Caltrans, a $10 million discount from the developer and $10 million from another developer to offset environmental problems at a different site.
