The battle is far from over regarding this property. The 8-9-16 Register article only shows that this article I wrote below that blew the lid off of this dirty deal has swayed the owners into perhaps doing what is right for the community instead of ruining Raymond Hills. We must keep the pressure on. The Fullerton Observer to this day tries so desperately to discredit myself, disparage Mr. Levinson, hide the truth from Fullerton residents and protect the establishment. Shame on Sharon Kennedy. Looks like Sharon has chicken little’s pie all over her face on this one. The Register confirmed what Mayor Fitzgerald lied to all of Fullerton about on camera while Sharon Kennedy tried to turn my expose on this dirty city hall backroom deal into a smear job- Barry and I were right and Joe Imbriano is running for City Council. Fitzgerald needs to pack her bags.
Build it and they will come ladies and gentlemen and believe they will come. Low income housing is headed to Raymond Hills. Mayor Fitzgerald says development plans don’t exist for this location but yet a public hearing regarding rezoning this location to do just that made the paper.
Sources to the Fullerton Informer indicate that the new owner of the property on Chapman and Raymond may have prevailed against the current tenants in vacating their leases and the property is eventually slated to become a massive high rise development with a major component of low income housing. Welcome your new neighbors with open arms ladies and gentlemen and there will be lots of them. Here is a slide from last night’s planning commission hearing and you will notice the big pinkish rectangle on the right. Patti’s cakes and Polly’s are toast folks.
For years this center’s occupants were not allowed to expand their businesses, potential new additional tenants were turned away and all while this place was intentionally run into the ground for the moment that they are still waiting for. Last night the planning commission unveiled that moment again after it was delayed two years ago by the pressure we applied to the city council who was meeting in the library room with no live coverage.-
We were out in front of this mess years ago and they are trying to resurrect this scam again. Watch Jennifer Fitzgerald tell us no plans exist as plans exist, as she calls me a liar and insults all your intelligence with the zoning change map right in front of your eyes.
Yet when asked to remove this location from the Revised DCCSP, she doubles down.
Yes the plans to rezone the property are already written, you are looking at them in the photo above, the tenants are already being run out and the goal will be high density section 8 housing.
Nelson operatives Fitzgerald and her running mate phony conservative Larry Bennett that ran the anti recall campaign a few years back and was on the police union ticket last time around is in on this scam too. Watch as he is called on out his involvement. After all he is on the planning commission and is pro development.
All this is carefully being laid out behind your backs and will go down quickly if the planning commission and council approves the biggest sellout to the developers in Fullerton’s history that our city manager Joe Felz is trying to repackage, THE DCCSP. What you see below will be encompassing 1000’s of acres of Fullerton.
THIS IS THE NEW FACE OF FULLERTON FOLKS RIGHT HERE
The site at the corner of Chapman and Raymond will could bring up to 500 more housing units which would bring in 50 million in developer fees to the city. That is what is at work here. Here are those who are at work here.
The entire property will be packem’ and stackem’ high rise high density housing just the way the at large appointee that the Vice President of Curt Pringle and associates Jennifer Fitzgerald
moved to appoint, the S.C.A.G. operative on the Fullerton Planning Commission Ms. May an Johnson
In case you don’t know, these two don’t work for us, they work for the developers and the social engineers and boy do they have plans to transform the entire city into Agenda 21 stackem’ and packem’ high rise housing. We just dodged the College Town deal recently and now they are resurrecting the huge DCCSP plan.
You see the city is out of money because of all of the establishment cronies that have bled us dry for decades with their lavish salaries, pensions,car allowances, medical, dental, vision plans and perks while hiding behind a thin political veneer comprised of a bizarre combination of liberal populism hybridized with phony conservatism that has put the residents to sleep while leaving the city’s infrastructure (roads, sewers, parks, public restrooms) and finances in utter ruin. Folks the trusted names in Fullerton politics have been screwing you all over for decades. Stop going along with them and being their sycophants.
Recently reality didn’t stop the city council from going millions into the red for Police and Fire raises and benefit increases. They have done this because they want their endorsements for the upcoming election and they anticipate getting upwards of 12-15 thousand dollars per unit developed to pay for the out of control city hall gravy train while they put you to work on Love Fullerton day washing police cars, cleaning up school buildings, government buildings and parks that our tax money was supposed to pay for and then putting you to sleep with firework shows, parades, and backpack giveaways. See how they play this game? You sit back and vote for these people that are endorsed by the police and fire unions, you think you are supporting a strong community when in fact, the greed of these factions is sucking the taxpayers dry with selling Fullerton off to development behind your backs as the only way out. I could go on and on. This website documents years of this train of abuses and the inaction and complicity of those who you would never think have a hand in this.
Here is Barry Levinson last night calling attention to huge problems with this proposal.
The only way out of this mess is to vote them out in November. Jennifer Fitzgerald and Jan Flory need to go. I have a vested interest in what is best for our community and I am not popular with the establishment sycophants that want to ruin Fullerton for that very reason.
You can watch Ms. Shanfiel- the chair of the planning commission explain what happened in 2014. This got the ball rolling on the DCCSP mess and the planning commissioners from 2014 appear to be totally incompetent or corrupt.
She admits in no uncertain terms they were given misinformation and a non existent time constraint. You could say they were lied to. It sure appears that way to me. Clink the video below and 10 seconds in, you will not believe what you will hear.
You can watch how the city staff that tried to ram the biggest threat to our quality of life in Fullerton’s history through in 2014. They are either corrupt or incompetent when what they fed this load to the planning commission to get them to vote to pass the DCCSP which was clearly based on inaccurate information 2 years ago. Looks like they voted to pass the biggest threat to Fullerton’s future without even vetting it, understanding it, and under what appears to be a series of misrepresentations and duress. Read that rubber stamp hacks-listen to this-
And just to remind all of you in the audience on 4-13-16, Kathleen Shanfeild said “…… I wish we would have had more time when we talked about this before…. “
NO KATHLEEN, YOU MEAN WHEN YOU, KATHLEEN ALONG WITH GAMBINO, JOHNSON AND THE GUY THAT HATES THE CARS, MR SILBER, VOTED TO PASS THE DCCSP WHILE PENDERGRAFT MISSED THE MEETING AND NEVER ONCE SAID BOO ABOUT IT-YOU VOTED FOR THIS AND IT PASSED-YOU DID MUCH MORE THAN JUST TALK ABOUT IT, YOU PASSED IT AND YOU ALMOST HANDED THE DESTRUCTION OF FULLERTON UP ON A SILVER PLATTER TO JOE FELZ AND IT ALMOST PASSED THE COUNCIL.
I urge you all to take a hard look at what you take for granted right now because it is in jeopardy. We need real leaders, not phonies and ignorant rubber stamp hacks that will allow Fullerton to be sold out to the highest bidder and hoodwink you with dog and pony shows just to get elected like we have now. The plans in the works could add 100,000 more people to Fullerton in the next ten years almost doubling the population as we already struggle to maneuver our cars in traffic in a park poor city with busted up roads and water mains. Enough is enough.
Stay vigilant Fullerton.
I stand up for the residents even when no one is looking folks. Last night was no exception.
