Urban Renewal Schemes Seeking Planning Consultant Accomplices ^ | March 13, 2008 | Richard Cooper

The City of Long Beach is advertising for planning consultants to carry out their plans. Will they be hired if there is some danger that the consultant will say "We have studied the situation carefully and we believe the city should not impose zoning restrictions on property owners and their uses of the land. Nor do we believe that eminent domain is justified." Would such a consultant be considered or hired?...

It is a wide scale agenda. And couple this with the multi-city national corruption scandal a few years back where the same consultants had the ears of a number of cities’ mayors and city councils.

Why are many of the old neighborhoods being torn down nationally to make room for cheaply constructed townhomes and skyrises that resemble Soviet housing communities?

The inflated buyout prices convinced many people to sellout and scram but in the end, they often ended up buying a new house for the same money they were paid.

All of our old ballparks have been torn down as “obsolete”. The cities of our youth are gone. The landmarks aren’t there. With the past in the past, we are now ready to embrace whatever future is served to us.

And even in Europe the old sports stadiums have been torn down. Wembley anyone?

But everyone looks on it as a local concern. “oh I see there are doing it there too”. Why now? Why the rush?

Never seemed to be done before. National investors? Buying opportunities?

What happened to my town?

Do some research on “Agenda 21” and you’ll find the answers to all the questions.

Having visited a number of the "old stadiums" I'd suggest the trough urinals are one good reason for jacking them up and driving a brand new stadium in under them ~ yup.

The dirt floor beer joints of my early 20s are also gone.

Sometimes old stuff really is inferior and really not worth preserving as a ceremonially important ruin.
