For 19 years, Lake Arrowhead-based Church of the Woods has sought to build its Sonrise church campus complex and recreational development project off State Highway 18 and Daley Canyon Road in Rimforest. The church proposed a two-story assembly building, a two-story youth center, a ministry structure, a sports field, game courts and more.

In 2003, the San Bernardino County Planning Commission approved the project without an environmental impact report. A report was later approved in 2011, but the church withdrew the project in the face of opposition.

In 2017, the church tried again. The county Planning Commission approved the project in January 2020 over objections from environmental groups. The Board of Supervisors denied the groups’ appeal in October 2020, but did not certify the report or officially approve the project.
