What’s the matter — too tough an issue for you? Would you have to actually get involved, Councilman Boyd, and maybe read the traffic consultant’s report?
When you talk about government mismanagement, after the traffic consultant, who was hired by the city, did an excellent job of getting the facts on the parking issues, instead of asking him (a professional) for some parking management programs, the council subcommittee sent it to the Parking/Traffic/Circulation committee, who are not traffic professionals.
They then sent it to the Planning Commission, they are not traffic professionals; from there, to the city staff and council members, and they are not traffic professionals or traffic management specialists.
The results have been negative. “How can we do this?” “It’s too hard!” “There’s no easy solution!” Many hours of meetings by nonprofessionals trying to figure out a solution, but NEVER coming up with one, clear total solution that people can respond to. Ask any five people what the City Council’s parking management plan, is and you will get five different answers.
So… forget the residents and their quality of life issues — just say “NO.” Thanks a lot!
Children could be put at risk for cell tower rent
There is a lot of controversy about cellphone towers and potential life-threatening health risks if exposed to radio-frequency emissions, a form of electromagnetic radiation, from cell towers. Here is the most important piece of information to remember.
Although there are no studies showing conclusive evidence directly linking radio-frequency emissions from cell towers to life-threatening illnesses, there are also no studies showing conclusive evidence that radio-frequency emissions from cell towers do not cause life-threatening illnesses.
Do the incentives come close to matching the potential risks involved? The city of Laguna Beach, and its council members seem to think so.
