When asked why he did not declare the income, he responded, it has nothing to do with Grand Terrace, so he didn’t think he needed to get approval for the political activity or the moonlighting demands on his time. Management often has a no moonlighting clause in contracts or employment agreements.
Well He was working against the Measure V which restricts development and requires the City to mitigate Traffic…
Now if it had gone the way of Steve Berry’s Employer, don’t you think you’d hear from him or a council member, a justification for higher density in Grand Terrace …? Because Loma Linda has it. It is CROOKED Logic to say what happens in Loma Linda is not related or an impact on Grand Terrace. Have you driven on Barton Rd lately…. Guess where the traffic is coming from or going to? Yep, that would be LOMA LINDA and Redlands…
Loma Linda adopts General Plan

LOMA LINDA - The City Council on Tuesday night narrowly adopted an updated General Plan that significantly reduces the number of housing units that can be built.
The General Plan was revised in response to Measure V, a slow-growth initiative approved by Loma Linda voters in 2006. Measure V has several growth-control elements, including a requirement that homes be built on lots that are at least 7,200 square feet.
The initiative also limits residential building heights to 36 feet and requires developers to do more to relieve traffic impacts caused by their projects.
The General Plan is a conceptual blueprint for the amount and location of homes, businesses, parks, schools and other features.
Mayor Stan Brauer and Councilmen Rhodes Rigsby and Ovidiu Popescu supported the changes. Councilmen Floyd Petersen and Robert Ziprick voted no.
The revisions lower the number of homes, apartments and condos 3,500 units. As a result, when there is no more land available to be developed 20 years from now, the city expects to have about 31,000 residents instead of 38,000.
The large area of open space south of Redlands Boulevard and west of California Street will have less than half the number of residential units that were slated to be built there a few years ago.
"Measure V has vastly improved this General Plan by decreasing the density and amount of housing," Popescu said Wednesday.
The changes to the General Plan reflect the influence of Popescu and Rigsby, who campaigned against high-density development. Both supported adding more commercial and park space to the General Plan.
Petersen said he needed more time to digest the changes and asked his colleagues to delay a vote for two weeks. Ziprick agreed, but the request was denied by the majority.
Petersen criticized the reduction in housing, saying the city needs more places to live for students and employees at Loma Linda University.
