Who is behind the Lund Ranch II Referendum?

Original post made by MsVic, Mission Park, on Jan 31, 2016

A little food for thought this Sunday. Who are the people behind the referendum? Check out where they live on hills and ridges in our town. Seems they only NOW care about hills and ridges and not when they purchased their homes.

Karla Brown Councilmember- Kottinger HIlls! Allen Roberts - Grey Eagle gated hillside and neighborhood! Bill Lincoln - homes built on slopes more than 25% Sycamore Heights/Bridle Creek! Interesting huh?

These are just to name a few. They have theirs - but to heck with everyone else. And they are all in an uproar over a road. Ask why now and why not when they were purchasing homes on hills and ridges?.

Personally I have no respect for a Councilmember out working against the rest of the City Council to turn over their decision.

I suggest one also ponder an earlier post, "Council member Karla Brown and the referendum" dated 1/29/16. It was very insightful.

After reading that post and thinking about the " absolutely no traffic in my neighborhood" mantra from the Sycamore Height/Bridle Creek minority and Ms K Brown from Kottinger, I could not help but think this referendum is also a fight for their very own gated community but without the physical gate.

As for Mr Roberts maybe he wants to make his gate a bit taller and wider?

Bank roiling up to $50,000 to pay for outside signature gatherers was a down payment for this up grade to divert traffic off their streets onto another.

And using the false "road is a structure" argument, they create a physical barrier to access their neighborhood.

Please know I have absolutely no problem with gated communities - I just don't want to have pay for someone else's imaginary gate via a $247,000 referendum; risk loosing over 174 aces of open space; a possible taking law suit; nor deal with the traffic that they signed up for when they purchased their homes.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
