The Leucadia streetscape introduction is going on now, it looks promising and the designers seem capable and enthusiastic.One observation, tonight Jerome Stocks has been loose and witty, unlike the tightly wound scowling Stocks I've seen over the years. The webcast works great! Seemless.
Jerome is that way because he is up for reelection. Don't let the smiles and looseness fool you.
I watched the webcast last night too. Jerome made me sick, his little jokes and looseness wa fake and condesending.
Jerome makes everyone feel like they have the Flu.I bet he was happy because he received his quarterly “thank you” from local developers.
Last night also included interviews with applicants for the various commissions. I spoke as I was an applicant. Several people were there to support and encourage me, others wrote emails in support to the council. I want to tell them here, publicly, how much I appreciate the kindness. You know who you are.
I watched the webcast too. Jerome was nicer than usual, but he is still a weasel. He gave his buddy Steve Aceti extra time for his presentation, but then cut him off when he wouldn't stop talking. Aceti is another weasel.I'm copying below the latest news from the weasels in Orange County. It hard to see that this appeal will go anywhere.Toll road appeal to take a year By: DAVE DOWNEY - Staff Writer A federal official said it could be a long wait, almost a year, until the U.S. Secretary of Commerce rules on the appeal for the proposed San Onofre toll road that was rejected soundly last week by the California Coastal Commission.Because the last four miles of the highway would cross federal land -- the Camp Pendleton Marine Corps Base -- the project proponent, the Foothill/Eastern Transportation Corridor Agency, was able to appeal the denial to the Secretary of Commerce.Spokesman Anson Franklin said Wednesday that the commerce secretary has 325 days, or nearly a year, to weigh the arguments and render a decision on an appeal. Franklin said decisions typically take that long. The transportation agency wants to build a 16-mile extension of the Highway 241 toll road, running south from Rancho Santa Margarita to Interstate 5 near the San Diego-Orange county line. Four miles of the highway would run on San Onofre State Beach, which sits on a sliver of Camp Pendleton.
JP, why doesn't NCTD pay for it because it's in their right of way? Logical question with a simple answer - it's a matter of priorities just like anything else. Why don't I fix that ding in my car? Because my fridge just broke and I decided that's more important.But probably because NCTD folks are a bunch of bastards. ;)
There's also the push for the city to make the improvements to the NCTD gravel parking lot at E and Vulcan. Only 3 to 4 million dollars of taxpayers money.
Thank you for posting on the Leucadia Blog. There is nothing more powerful on this Earth than an anonymous opinion on the Internet. Have at it!!!
