Measure L Loser 2 Redux?

Sunset Box Springs MountainsWho remembers Measure L from 2014? Who remembers Dan Bernstein​ singing “Noel, Noel” on YouTube?

 The developer, Terry Manley is threatening to come back in 2016 with the help of two opponents who fought him last year….yes, they are now part of  “Team Manley”.

 Currently 152 homes can legally be built under the current zoning. He is asking for 725 homes or approximately 5 TIMES that which is currently allowed. Last year he wanted over 1900 homes.

Can you see where this is starting to get insulting to the community?

 Allowing outside interests to set a value for our community’s assets is offensive. If it’s warehouses in the Northside, or housing in La Sierra, who says those are Riverside’s only two options?

Community members are speaking up and speaking out. There is  a new conversation about best use of our lands that includes all the environmental impacts and where our zoning protects or perverts our communities remaining open spaces.

RFSA_Logo Placeholder Riverside’s prosperity has always been tied to the community protecting our unique natural assets. Looks like we’re seeing this conversation move into even more communities faster than last time.

Maybe the idea of a robust agricultural economy that could be easily  developed by combining our ownership of water with the 19.5 million hungry consumers living within 90 miles of Riverside.. We can develop clean, sustainable businesses with real jobs if we talk more about how to best use our existing land and water resources. Housing and warehouses or food and prosperity for all? You decide.

Here’s what Dan had to say last time.
