For Immediate Release: November 13, 2007

“Baldwin Park City Council fast tracking process for Bisno Development
project will displace hundreds of families and businesses ”

Baldwin Park, CA – Homeowners and Business owners protest at city meeting
WHAT: Homeowners and Business owners will protest city meeting that will study the environmental impacts of 125 acre development; which has identified the demolition of over 600 homes and businesses. The demolition will make way for a mixed use project proposed by Century City based Bisno Development.
WHEN: 7:00p.m., Tuesday, November 13, 2007.
WHERE: Julia McNeil Senior Center, 4100 Baldwin Park Blvd., Baldwin Park, CA 91706 (Corner of Baldwin Park and Ramona Blvd.)
BACKGROUND:
Homeowners and Business owners have united against the proposed demolition of 125 acres which will make way for a mixed use development proposed by Century City based Bisno Development.
Mayor Lozano has stated that they do not have a plan for the proposed project and that the development may take up to 15+years. City records indicate the contrary, in a letter dated January 5, 2007 Bisno Development cites “the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association initiative” as a threat and urges the city to move quickly.
On February 7, 2007 the Baldwin Park City Council approved an amendment to the Bisno Development Exclusive Negotiating Agreement (ENA) that will fast track the entitlement process in an effort to beat the impending state legislation that will go to the voters in 2008.
Councilwoman Marlen Garcia stated at a the Council meeting of September 19, 2007 that anyone who was not in agreement could go to TJ (Tijuana).
Councilman Anthony Bejarano at the same meeting when asked were will the current occupants of the area would go? Bejarano stated “they can go to East Los Angeles”.
Appraisers are currently appraising properties in many cases against the will of the property owners and occupants. Tactics such as the forced appraisals and lack of noticing of meetings are only a few of the extreme
The lack of vision on the Council is evident they have neglected the needs of the community for too long. Now they plan to fix everything by demolishing the homes and businesses of hundreds of stakeholders and starting from scratch. True leaders are visionaries who can take the challenges of an established community and turn it around with progressive planning tools that will stimulate economic growth and prosperity.
