No one and I mean no one is that generious. Something is fishy here. If he is truely the sucessful developer he claims to be then he is most certainly getting something out of this deal. He stands to make money and, even though he claims otherwise, I'm sure he is getting financial breaks from the city. Projects of this size don't just choose to build in MoVal because they are headed by a "good-natured developer who wants to do good for his community". He can complain all he wants but this project is moving very quickly for something of this size and city has budget issues to deal with that are not going to allow for city staff to be at his beacon-call.

I think that is great what he is doing and this will bring jobs to the community because its a lot of people that cant find local jobs in the city and when a city has no jobs and a lot of people unemployeed the crime rate goes up like it is doing now!!! Kudos to the guy & i would be willing to help anyway i can!!!
Go out there and help Iddo then - but don't expect a paid job.

Since Benzeevi is not even registered to vote in Riverside County, one needs to question where he lives and why he should have such influence on our City. The fact he is always behind schedule in submitting the necessary documents to the City, shows he has no expeirnce in completting any project. I beieve he got approval in 1990 from the city to build the Moreno Highlands project. That project was to result in about 7,000 homes and 20,000 permant jobs on the lands east of Skechers. His faioure to build some of those homes during the past 20 years has notheing to do with the present economy. Why isn't that project built with all those permanent jobs for Moreno Valley residents. The 700 construction jobs have mostly been given to those who are outside of Riverside County. Skechers will simply allow those working at their Ontario Warehouse to drive 30 minutes to Moreno Valley to their new toxic warehouse and therfore again very few jobs for us.

The three yes boys on the City Council need to GO and the first chance is Richard Stewart this November.
Iddo DOES NOT live in Moreno Valley and his so-called vineyard is in the "County of Riverside".

And YES! You are so right - the three "Yes Boys" need to go.

Check previous news and quotes and you'll be amazed at the 'misdirection and slight of hand' going on.

Why would HF sign a contract in 2007, making them liable for $2.2 million, for a project WITHOUT first having proper zoning, approvals or a guaranteed water supply (for a project) that was to be completed by 2009?

(January 14, 2008) LA Times reported the warehouse project was in jeopardy due to non compliance with TWO state laws passed in 2001 that link large development to the availability of water. "No water. No construction. It's a bad combination," said Borre Winckel, executive director of the Riverside County Building Industry Assn. said in 2008.

"Just looking at the raw numbers, we kept coming up short," said David J. Slawson, president of the board of directors of the Perris-based Eastern Municipal Water District… said in 2008.

"The building is currently under construction in Rancho Belago in the Inland Empire and is slated for completion in 2009." - - Publication: Los Angeles Business Journal Publication Date: 12-NOV-07

That (new facility) facility will accommodate up to 800 jobs at its peak, according to officials familiar with the project.” By JOSEPH ASCENZI, [email protected], per The Business Press, Sunday, October 21, 2007.-

And most of the current Skecthers employees will transfer in order to have a job.

How did Iddo and Company go from a foundation permit, to clearly having walls framed in the 9/2 PE article (with just a foundation permit?), to raising a cured wall panel just two days after the building permit was issued?
