The Grand Terrace City News: (Not associated with this GrandTerraceNews Blogspot), has printed in the paid advertisement an interesting point of view on the Town Center Project and Debate.
Carefully read the above pictures of the advertisement.
Of note are several points.
First: The Jacobsen Family Holdings Plan for the LIBRARY is not a Donation. NO DONATED LIBRARY is in the WORKS for Town Center. NO County Library Contract Exists to Build or Lease a new facility in Grand Terrace.
There is a budget for shelves and furniture or was, some of those items are already in use in our library where it is now located.
Second: Yes, the Old Kmart is a better location for LOWES. This is an idea this Blog has promoted for a long time now.
Third: There is not a NEED to move Stater's in order to have an improved Stater Brothers.
Fourth: Who develops the Town Center and What is Included in the Town Center WILL have a major impact on the community. This blog is not a NO DEVELOPMENT position. This Blog, is concerned with the PROPERTY RIGHTS and FREEDOM of PRIVATE INDIVIDUALS and PRIVATE BUSINESSES who do NOT have BACKROOM, EXCLUSIVE DEVELOPMENT DEALS with the CITY or CITY MANAGER or REDEVELOPMENT AGENCY.
Fifth: A Public Library can ONLY be placed in the Town Center Development. ALL would support a new library. OWNED as a PUBLIC BUILDING. However, its location may be better suited as a complement to the New High School and incorporated in that Site Plan and Facility Design. By a collaborative effort the Citizens of Grand Terrace and the Students Attending High School would be better and more efficiently served with better facilities and access.
By all means contact your City Council Members, and the City Management.
It is Great to see more discussion of the ISSUES facing Grand Terrace. Let's HOPE the Council hears the Residents of Grand Terrace. Statements made to the Press indicate they have already set a predisposed default decision that Jacobsen Family Planning will have their way with the Town Center Development including the Big Box Lowes, and Uber Stater Brothers.
Residents of Grand Terrace also have an email address:
They seek your support in their views not your financial support.
Of course, the Blog runs entirely on the same standard. We are UNPAID, and Do not Charge for the Blog in ANY WAY.. We are an Add Free Blog. GrandPaTerrace is NOT Running For Any OFFICE, this is an ISSUES based Information Blog.
