Homes near approval

A real positive for the community huh? How is cutting off access to the canyon to the rest of the city with a gated community positive. Now the wealthy new neighborhood gets the canyon and hiking trails all to itself. Sounds like they are capping the street with McMansions and taking the trails for themselves. You should call the development Private Trails Estates.  (Dec 1, 2010 | post #1)

Cost, location of downtown NFL stadium questioned

Industry is the perfect place for the stadium. The new High Speed Rail System will station here too. Street traffic will increase but the HSR station will help alleviate the traffic produced by the 70,000 seat stadium.  (Nov 18, 2010 | post #6)

Go ahead and take your chihuahua for a walk up there in the hills. Just don't complain when a mountain lion attacks you because of your dog/meal. If dogs and horses are going to be allowed then mountain bikes should also be allowed. Mountain bikes don't poop at all.  (Nov 11, 2010 | post #4)

Thanks to the politicians, nimby neighbors, Friends of the Pacific Electric tRAIL, the highway administration, the bus unions, Omnitrans, and all of the car dealerships throughout our wasteland. Thanks to all the NIMBY's who stopped the Metro Gold Line from coming through Rancho Cucamonga. Rancho is now the ONLY foothill city left out of the golden railway. You NIMBY's don't know how much damage you have done to the local and regional economy. Now we can look forward to a stagnant car driven economy with gridlocked and failing streets in the near future. Looks like the city will continue to be built around the car and the freeway system. Rental cars, car dealerships, widened freeways, eight lane boulevards, oceans of parking, and no rail expansion. Idiocracy. Embarrassing. Better tear out the Jack Benny Statue since it has no meaning anymore. Pasadena...Azusa.. .and Cuuuucamonga!!! I mean Oooooontario!!!  (Oct 29, 2010 | post #8)

Have you driven up Haven recently? Well there is a new rail bridge paid for by the stimulus dollars. The project was also shovel ready. After completion the Republican mayor of Rancho Cucamonga who was critical to stimulus spending did a ribbon cutting for the new "stimulus " bridge. Hypocritical...I think so. This bridge/road intersection at Haven and is one of the busiest in the nation. Over 55,000 cars and 40 trains per day cross this intersection. The stimulus funds have provided this much needed traffic relief. So the next time you aren't waiting for the train at Haven because you are driving under it at 50 mph...remember it was the liberal African-American President Barrack Hussein Obama who made your drive to work a little less hectic. I am proud of the president cause let's be honest...he inherited $#!+.  (Oct 29, 2010 | post #7)

Eastvale unveiling

Congratulations Eastvale!!! It's not every day you see a new city spring up from nothing. How exciting to be involved in the creation of this new city. A lesson in civics for all residents involved. Now to talk about the rest of the comments. I'm going to call the lot of you negative nancy. I bet Eastvale is a nicer city than most of yours. Lets see. Victorville...I'd rather walk on hot coals than live there. Monterey Park sounds nice but probably is a dump literally. Rochester is snotty old money and inbreeds...did I mention it's bone chilling cold. Artesia sounds just delightful with it's one shallow gene pool and crumbling schools. Ah Glendora...bingo anyone...or how bout a nice game of bridge. I can't say anything bad about Corona, Riverside, or Rancho Cucamonga because they are beautiful and extremely wealthy cities full of horse properties and home to award winning retail, business parks, residential districts, and of course award winning schools. As for the Beverly Hills comment. I'll tell you this. If you asked me which city looks more like Beverly Hills...Eastvale or Victorville I would have to say Eastvale Hills all the way. Victorville is the meth capital and does nothing good for the Inland Empire. It actually hurts the I.E. because the few nice cities we have are dragged down by the Victorvilles. EASTVALE The name sucks though and they should change it to the city of Prado. It sounds wealthier and is only one letter away from Prada. Much better name. Welcome to the city of Prado. Just a thought. When they decided to name Rancho they had some funny names picked like Ioamosa. Just think if Rancho was called the city of Ioamosa. I need a mimosa.  (Sep 25, 2010 | post #8)

Survey says locals like living in Inland Empire

POMONA...ARE YOU SERIOUS? What about your precious LA County? Overbuilt with gaudy rundown 1960's housing. And the retail in your area is equivalent to Tijuana's. Horrible parks, failing schools, and a failing senior center, the crumbling and unused library could also be the problem. Overpriced apartment and condo living. Traffic gridlock everywhere. Pomona right? What good things can I say about Pomona...well at least they have some good eats like Tonys Beefdip or Donahoos Chicken but as for the quality of life in Pomona, let's just say I've seen nicer third world countries than the city of Pomona. But hey, we can't all have green grass...right Pomona? I mean that would take responsibility which most of Pomona's citizens lack. Rancho is a functioning city unlike Pomona, if you have a brown "dirt" lawn like most of the properties in P Town you are seen as trash. This pressure keeps whole neighborhoods in pristine condition. It is always amusing to me that when I leave my city and go to Pomona I see trash in the streets, loose animals running around, bars on the windows, people everywhere in the middle of a work day, bums, bums, and more bums. You can keep your dirt city full of renters and LA rejects. I will keep my pristine green city full of homeowners, executives, and soccer moms who drive BMW's and Range Rovers. I don't see Rockefeller or Guggenheim building office buildings in your area...do you? They just built the Rockefeller office complex in the Inland Empire. Sorry Pomona...maybe you will get another check cashing hole in the wall.  (Jul 7, 2010 | post #12)

Survey says locals like living in Inland Empire

I love the Inland Empire. We have much better tans, we have much more disposable income, and our airport is awesome. High Speed Rail, Metro Gold Line light rail, and a new trans rapid bus system are all being built in the next few years opening the Inland Valley to the rest of the LA Basin. Progress is being made. A few months ago a private jet full of investors flew over downtown San Berdo. They looked at the city from above and saw potential saying the city has good bones due to the Mormon grid layout. When the Mormons built the city, they built the streets very wide so they could turn their carriages around. This is a great thing because the city has existing street infrastructure that is before its time. If you look at the city of Glendale, the large towers in downtown are built on narrow 2 lane 1920's streets. The traffic is horrendous and they are contemplating a subway line to fix the problem. Well San Bernardino will have towers on magnificent streets by American city standards that are 4 and 6 lanes wide with outer lanes designated for transit. These investors are excited about San Bernardino. When was the last time someone was excited about this city? And those someones have lots of monies to invest. The city will change faster than people think. Downtown has an awesome feel. The local congressional representation now has a great friendship with the president of the United States. This president is determined to get cities like San Bernardino running again. The Dept. of Transportation has recently included a downtown San Bernardino high speed rail station. In earlier plans, the city was to be left out and abandoned...headed from Rancho/Ontario to Riverside...No San Bernardino. Now the city is included in the high speed rail plan, the economic equivalent to a new airport. I have faith in San Bernardino. Rancho is part of the San Bernardino Metro Area, or it used to be until Ontario took over metro area status. So now San Bernardino needs to become the government capital it is supposed to be.  (Jul 6, 2010 | post #7)

Sonic Drive-In opens in Rancho Cucamonga

I'd give up all Rancho's burger joints for one good mexican joint. If you go down my street in Rancho you will see burger boulevard. Carls Jr Burgers, Ledgends Burgers, McDonalds Burgers, Tams Burgers. Go another block and you will see In-n-Out Burgers, Wendy's Burgers, and you can always get a burger from Jack in the Box. Just one really good mexican joint is all I ask. El Burrito in Colton is my fav. Sonic Drive In is a good addition to burger land USA.  (Jun 17, 2010 | post #16)

Rialto moves forward with Foothill Boulevard improvements

Yay for Rialto. This will spur economic redevelopment from one side of Foothill to the other. Fontana already improved their portion of foothill. They built curbs and gutters, sidewalks, and replaced the intersection signals and street lighting with newer and more elaborate signals and street lights. Fontana also built a center median along Foothill that is nicer than all the "high end city" medians like Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, or Calabasas. Fontana's median takes the cake...probably because it is the newest.  (Jun 11, 2010 | post #3)

LA council asks LAWA to look into selling Ontario Airport...

The Decline of the Inland Vally. Passenger levels have never been so low. Our valley is in a major crisis. The airport is failing. Isn't that funny how every time we have a Republican president, tourism and travel plummet. The 80's thanks to Reaganomics and the 00's thanks to the worst president in American History. I don't think this trickle down stuff works. And these fake real estate economies are not the bridge to the 21st century that William Jefferson Clinton was talking about. Is America willing to try trickle down economics again? I believe that the Republicans will not get to try this corporate welfare stunt again for at least 40 years due to the destruction of both the American and World economy. In their greed they lost everyone's money rich and poor and froze over hell though some also refer to it as the credit market. Is America even able to rebuild it's battered middle class? The destruction of the middle class is the reason behind this plummet in economic activity and if we do not change our ways we will see airports, train stations, and bus lines close throughout the nation along with shopping malls, car malls, and entire major cities. The baby boomers sure have a lot to learn about leadership because so far they have not delivered. Childish and embarrassing leadership from the not so greatest generation.  (Jun 7, 2010 | post #6)
