  1. My question is why does the City allow one landowner to create zoning changes through a specific land on property he doesn’t even own? Benzeevi only controls about 48% of the land east of Redlands Boulevard. There are hundreds of acres of land he does not own and for some reason it would be allowed to be rezoned as industrial? What gives him the right to request this?

    • Because Highland Fairview owns the majority of land in that area, when compared to the other land owners individually. And no Michael Geller, I’m not an attorney, but just as you once said in 2008, “a very knowledgeable individual.”

    • Cody, By state regulations a city must have a general plan with designated land uses. The city is also entitled to change those land uses with or without the owner’s consent. They have the right to do this but they must explain why. Usually they say it is in the best interest of the city to make these land use changes. Two years ago the MV City Council voted unanimously to permit all the property east of Redlands Blvd., within the WLC proposal area to be include in the proposed land use change. Property owners not wanting this to happen to their property objected at the hearing but were included anyway. I only wish the Lee family trust, with their large land holding in the project area, would protest the change in memory of their mother’s wishes.

  2. I have a number of concerns with this agreement. 4.9 seems to be a totally improper attempt at usurping of voter rights and not surprisingly in the WLC agreement. As usurping a voters rights or vote seems to be an M.O. for this project. Why else dump all the $ that was dumped in the last election to get the 3 to 2 vote he wants on 1/27/15. There are no monetary damages provided in the event of a breach. 3.6 a-d clearly show he has no real interest is paying his proper fees and assessments for permits and/or working with the city… he wants a ombudsman at whose cost? I admit a just glanced at the agreement but seems to me 3.9 conflicts with 6.1 and 7.1 is likely the Geller employment act. If a attorney is hired for a law suit he pays he picks or he does not have to pay. Just my opinions of course. Finally if WLC is supposed to bring ALL kinds of jobs to the city why does the majority of the agreement deal with IDDO’s right to assign the “project”? Just my thoughts on this agreement.
