Michigan Mishugas: Playing Quarry Name Games

Commentary by Citizen X

I received a flyer for “Yes on W.” So of course I had to start looking things up: QuarryInitiative.com (http://wa-com.com/quarryinitiative.com). The registrant's name is private, registered through “Domains by Proxy” (https://www.domainsbyproxy.com/default.aspx). Once again, the name is NOT "Preserve@Pacifica, LLC." It is “The Preserve@Pacifica, LLC” and is based in Michigan (which we already knew). I am extremely leery of people who continually publish an incorrect name for their business: https://opencorporates.com/companies/us_mi/E50882.

The Pacifica Quarry (http://wa-com.com/thepacificaquarry.com) is registered through a proxy. I understand that people want their privacy, but all this secrecy makes me suspicious. I have not seen any private persons from Pacifica making statements on these “Yes on W” flyers. Since this “Yes on W” campaign says it is “paid for by Pacifica Residents … with major funding by Preserve@Pacifica, LLC,” I can only conclude that the company out of Michigan pays for this. Again, it publishes its own LLC name incorrectly, which (if we do not dig hard) will lead folks to believe that this is the company's true name. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. No company that large misspells its own name.

Reality Check: "Nothing Ever Gets Built in Pacifica"

By Chris Fogel

"Nothing ever gets built in Pacifica." Next time you hear a variation of this lazy cliché, show this photographic reality check circa 1972, north to south. Also, see the dazzling 1952 aerial shot of prehistoric Linda Mar (bottom):

Library in Limbo: Measure N NOT "Thoroughly Vetted"

Fellow blogger Dan Stegink of Pacifica.city forwards correspondence from the state (see links below) about the controversial library funding measure on the November ballot. Dan asked the state: "The proposed argument for the new library (Measure N) states that the California Coastal Commission (CCC) has thoroughly vetted Measure N: 'The Coastal Commission and third-party experts thoroughly vetted Measure N to ensure our library is safe from flooding and sea-level rise.' Is that accurate?" The CCC said NO (see the CCC letter at the first link below).

MidPen Housing Plan Bad for Coastside

Resist Density

We need volunteers to help lead this movement into the next phase. To help defray expenses, please mail a check to Resist Density at PO Box 215, Moss Beach, CA 94038 or donate using PayPal at www.resistdensity.org. Also, thanks to our Pacifica neighbors who posted a message on NextDoor about MidPen's proposed development in Moss Beach. Pacificans are concerned about increased traffic on Highway 1 that would inevitably result from adding a high-density housing development in Moss Beach.

Quarry Initiative Numbers Racket

Pacifica.city Post

If you've ever seen a street hustler playing three-card monte against a gaggle of suckers, you'll love the numbers game going on between quarry owners Eenhoorn/Heule and the City of Pacifica. Click the link above for Pacifica.city's analysis of the play action, and click the link below for the no-rezone group's comments to City Council on quarry housing numbers.

Pacifica City Council: Library Bond on November Ballot

Press Release

Really bad legal advice to Pacifica City Council forced a July 21 special meeting to reconsider the library bond measure (see city memo below). On July 21, council heard public comments (including a rude overtime diatribe by the head of the chamber of commerce that the mayor tried without success to gavel down), debated briefly, then voted 4-0 to put the bond on the November ballot. Council member John Keener said he would vote NO in November due to environmental and fiscal concerns about the planned site for the new library.
