Hilly controversy continues in Montebello

The Montebello City Council is set to discuss a development in the Montebello Hills at tonight’s meeting.

An activist group called “Save the Montebello Hills” is against the development and believes there is more than meets the eye. They are sending this e-mail around to the community:

Your presence is needed more than ever at tonight’s meeting of the Montebello City Council, Wednesday, December 10, 2008, 6:30 p.m. at the Montebello City Hall, 1600 W. Beverly Blvd., Montebello, CA 90640. Last minute information from a reliable source indicates that Agenda Item 20 regarding the “formation of an ad hoc sub-committee to provide guidance to staff regarding the Montebello Hills Specific Plan and Development Agreement”, is even more questionable and suspicious than first thought.

Everyone is urged to attend tonight’s City Council meeting even if you do not speak or can’t stay long because pivotal decisons regarding the fate of the Hills may be made. Wearing green and/or holding Save the Montebello Hills literature or bumper stickers etc., though not mandatory, would give a clear message that the public is extremely
concerned about the fate of the Hills and want to be involved in every aspect of the decision making process.

    We the Moms of Montebello want to make sure we all have a voice in what happens in our city. We all worry about what is built and the effect it will have in our community. It is only fair.

  • Fairness…

    When montebello citizens who are for the new project in the hills begin sending emails to our fellow citzens asking them to come to city council meetings to support the project, will the daily news publish them to?

    As a member of the Save the Montebello Hills Task Force of the Sierra Club, I have personally spoken to or heard the opinions of about 3,000 Mtb residents, and only 24 of them expressed support for the proposed 1200 condo/townhouse/detached home development. Supporters have had a full page in each of the last 4 or so issues of the Chamber of Commerce newspaper for deception, evasion, and mereticious ideas for development.
