Bad things start in California – here’s one

What to watch for locally:

Sustainable Communities = NO private Property Rights

Sustainable Communities = means jamming people into dense, urban centers using high-density residential housing and high-intensity retail and commercial buildings near mass transit corridors. 

Best practices = We have to limit citizen rights

“Sustainable” is frequently mentioned by officials in both Bloomington and Normal.  Eminent domain has been used locally to take a business from one person so a corporation can redevelop the property.  

____________________________________________

California’s Senate Bill 1 is what the founding fathers fought against.  Straight from the U.N. Agenda 21’s playbook, SB1 will give power to a county to form a “Sustainable Communities Investment Authority” (SCIA). These Authorities have the power of eminent domain and can confiscate private property to build “sustainable communities.” The bill essentially paves the way for the loss of any true private property in California, resulting in the loss of freedom and driving down home values. If the Senate passes the modified bill, only Governor Jerry Brown (D – CA) will stand in its way of becoming law.


This means that city and county governments can create unelected bureaucracies with the power to do what’s necessary to create “sustainable communities.”  It also means that the definition of “blight” will change from the original definition of abandoned and decaying buildings on residential lots to a much wider definition including anything the bureaucracies need to create sustainable communities.

  1. Bad things may start in California but they have already arrived in Bloomington.
    The concept, plan and strategy that’s taking in place in California with the One Bay Area plan has been simmering for quite a while. As you watch the video, anyone familiar with the Delphi technique may recognize it as similar to some of the discussions on issues here in Bloomington/Normal. And, of course, the facilitator in the video cannot answer point-blank questions, reframes them, and ultimately citizens still only get the choice that government gives them.
    Sound familiar?
    Case in point: Uptown Normal redevelopment; Main Street Corridor Form Based Code; the East Side Highway; and currently, the recently adopted Downtown Strategy.
    All have identical fingerprints, match those of One Bay Area, and all have the intent to powergrab private property.
    Private property is just that – PRIVATE!
    The government doesn’t own it. YOU DO!
    If citizens allow government to convince you they have some kind of authority or right to take or limit use of private property, its only because citizens allow it.

  2. In regards to creating unelected bureaucracies to perform tasks, such as property confiscation, etc, with regard to plans and development for sustainable communities, Bloomington/Normal citizens should be aware what means currently exist in Illinois in order to accomplish that. There is already law in Illinois that overrides eminent domain protection; the Town of Normal are experts on that, using TIF and uptown redevelopment jurisdictions to exploit it.
    As well, the current push for regional government bureaucracy by Bloomington/Normal is intended to accomplish similar objectives. Right now, the McLean County Regional Planning Commission fulfills a role that could very well accomplish similar results as the tribunal mentioned in the California bill.
    Blight is another local issue ripe for exploitation.
    Large sections of Bloomington private property has been categorized to fall into this criteria without property owners even being aware of it.
    While infrastructure has enjoyed the limelight in recent years as the headliner, could it be intentional that this issue is continually ignored for the most part and focus placed on beautification and quality of life scenarios to take any focus off of what’s really taking place – the quiet confiscation of private property?
