There is something wrong with this state.Why are parks being funded with a budget shortfall?And can Grand Terrace afford the upkeep of this proposed park? There are other cities who are receiving money for parks.Our sales taxes are sky high and this is the best that our leaders can do with the money?

Getting the state to pay for it. The city of Grand Terrace has been dragging its feet for so long. Now we see they want the state to pay for it. They are one of the more affluent cities around. Maybe they are that way because they are as cheap and stingy as its residents. Time to lobby the state to pull the funding. Impeach Grand Terrace City Council!

We have closed State Parks.

Grand Terrace has: Pico Park, Rollins Park, Susan Petta park, A dog park Site, Blue Mt Park & preservation area, a pocket park (Karger Park, and another Playground Park Pocket Park.) All school yards are available after school.

This is a deal to let Doug Jacobsen and Jacobsen Family Development off load property they no longer are being required to replace low and moderate Income Housing they removed in a Development that partnered with the RDA and used RDA Authorities to obtain Land and fee waivers, including Park Fees.

The State nor GT have the money to spend and support the park, and to let Jacobsen out of an obligation to build replacement housing he has removed from the community.Stop this Park and Boondoggel.
