Grand Terrace has joined the epidemic. It is a "cancer" that distroys lives for the sake of greed.
What has happened to our country? A country our forefathers fought to insure our freedom. The right to own land and build inorder to support our families. While we all know it is wrong to steal or distroy what belongs to someone else, our Government, City, State and Federal refuse to stand up and protect the hard working people. This is why we must stand up and be counted.
Martin Luther King said it so well when he said "I have a dream where all men are created equal."
The Consititution of the United States Preamble:
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
Or to quote a higher authority "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you".
What will it take to get the elected officials of Grand Terrace to see that their decisions harm innocent people. The City Council, Planning Department, and City Manager have made a decision to allow Developer, Jacobson an "Exclusive Negotiating Agreement" or to be the sole person the homeowners located in the designated Barton Road Project are to negotiate with.
Nobody should have the right to take someone's home for capital gain. Taking peoples homes to build a store, is cruel and unjust. But if the citizens of Grand Terrace don't stand up and be counted, they will get away with it.
We don't want a Lowe's at our front door. You promised us a "City Walk" citizens could be proud of. Selling out the hard working citizens of Grand Terrace is just wrong. I really don't know how Jacobsen and Schwab sleep at night
