There was a great turnout Wednesday evening for the Redlands general plan meeting even with competition from the World Series and Rep debate.
Everyone who spoke did a great job.
The City of Redlands is updating its General Plan, which will control what gets built and where for the next 20 years.
The City’s and SANBAG’s plan to run formerly 50 and now 58 trains per day through Redlands is part of the “transformation.” If we do not want Redlands to be “fundamentally transformed” including high density (and low income) housing throughout Redlands, restricting single family homes, trying to force us out of our cars, and restricting traffic for those who still drive so it will take more of our time to drive around Redlands, we the people of Redlands need to be involved in the process.
Take control of your City and your government.
As always, “The most important political office is that of the private citizen.” Justice Louis D. Brandeis
To paraphrase Edmund Burke, “The only thing necessary for our city, state and country to be “fundamentally transformed is for good citizens to do nothing.”
Here are videos of citizens fulfilling the obligations of their most important political office.
Thank you to Sam Wong and Tressy Capps for videoing and Grindall61 for quickly editing the videos for posting.
