Deadline for EIR comments
If you haven’t opposed BCHDs megaproject, today is the last day. Here’s a direct analogy so folks can understand the scam. What if the City of Hermosa (agency) leased the Greenbelt (public owned land) to Kaufman & Broad (private developer) and let Kaufman charge full market-rents for building a long string of upscale apartments for 95% non-residents of Hermosa Beach. Kaufman would kick back 20% of the NET revenue to the City and keep 95%+ of the gross revenue. That’s the deal that BCHD is proposing with our public lands. Why should public land be used to build $12,500 per month assisted living for non-residents of the 3 beach cities? It just doesn’t make any sense on the last and only 10-acre parcel in the 3 beach cities that’s publicly owned and not already a park.
Email EIR@bchd.org before 5 p.m. today and tell them their aesthetics, air emissions, noise, recreation and traffic impacts are significant and that their DEIR was defective, must be fixed, and then must be recirculated to the public.
