During the Tuesday January 22nd meeting of the Moreno Valley City Council, Mr. Foster stated during an agenda item regarding the issuance of an Urgency Ordinance Moratorium in connection with the City’s overlay zone for specific areas in the eastern end of Moreno Valley, that the area was mostly Business Park, CommercialOffice or Commercial and that only two properties were residential.
In researching this item in advance, we have found that this statement by Mr. Foster is false.
Watch the video below to see his exact statement, and then access the provided information following that video for the truth.
This action has more to do with preventing the only project or development action which hasn’t yet been entitled in that target area, the Prologis Eucalyptus Industrial Park, who’s DEIR has been working its way through the City’s process for some time.
An attempt by Highland Fairview’s Iddo Benzeevi to derail the Ridge Property Trust’s Westridge Project failed, however with this project, they may in fact succeed.
Four of the parcels of land are located in the middle of the Stone Ridge Center, fifteen parcels of land are incorporated into the Moreno Valley Auto Mall, and one is a fire station belonging to the City of Moreno Valley. There are a few parcels north of the freeway which are designated office and commercialoffice with the remainder being that of residential R1 and R2. East of the Moreno Valley Auto Mall is the proposed location of the Prologis development on land which is currently listed as Business Park, with the land south of that being residential of R2, R5 and R15.
It is hard to see what the danger is to the public from residential development, an office complex, or even a new store front within an already existing shopping center. Is the Mall a danger as well to our health, safety and wellbeing?
These same individuals thumb their noses at the AQMD when it comes to trucking and pollution and say, so what if it is unhealthy, have you seen our unemployment rate, only 85% of our citizens are working, to hell with your pollution numbers and the clean act.
The head of it all on the City Council is Tom Owings, the same man who used these arguments against Ridge Property Trust, as did Highland Fairview’s Iddo Benzeevi and his Cell Block 6 Cheer Squad.
