Future of La Mesa in 3D: Simulation Envisions Grossmont Center [Video
And poof a few minutes later it was deleted! I guess if you have an opposing view on "The Patch" prepare to get deleted. The concept and idea of the Grossmont Center Envision, Looks great! Although only in a Conceptual stage, I would be wary of signing on to something that speaks of Sustainability or Smart Growth. And why you ask?
WHAT’S WRONG WITH SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT?How could something that sounds so good be bad? Who wouldn’t want to be sustainable? Vibrant? Walkable? Bikeable? Green? These buzz words were designed to make you think that you’re doing something good for the planet. This is the biggest public relations scam in the history of the world. Sustainable Development was created and defined by the United Nations in 1987, and the action plan to implement it was signed onto in 1992 by US PresidentBush and 178 other nations.It was called Agenda 21, the Agenda for the 21st century. Considered unsustainable under this plan: middle class lifestyle, single family homes, private vehicles, meat-eating, air conditioning, appliances, dams, farming, you.Clinton began to implement it in the US in 1993 by giving the American Planning Association a multi-million dollar grant to write a land use legislative blueprint for every municipality in the US. It is calledGrowing Smart Legislative Guidebook with Model Statutes for Planning and the Management of Change. This was completed in 2002 and is being used to train planners in every university, college and government planning office in the nation. Growing Smart is Smart Growth.Growing Smartis in our planning department and its principles are in our city and countyplan. Right now. Beside this, on the shelf, is The Local Agenda 21 Planning Guideput out by ICLEI and the United Nations. Urban areas are being consolidated and rural areas are being emptied of people through restrictive land use policies, gasoline costs, vehicle miles traveled taxes, loss of rural road maintenance, closure of rural schools, closure of rural post offices, water wellmonitoring, smart meters, and regionalization pressures. Smart Growth is not just the preferred building style for UN Agenda 21/Sustainable Development; it is the ideology. Moving people into centralized urban areas in high density housing creates the perfect opportunity for domestic surveillance. This ideology is being used as the justification to radically change every city in the United States and to impose regulations dictated by unelected regional boards and commissions. It is remaking government. This dramatic revolution in private property rights extends to every facet of our lives:education, energy, food, housing, transportation.We are being told that this is OUR PLAN but it is not. We object to this manipulation and refuse to be subjected to it. Educate yourself
