Wildomar City Council Meeting April 9, 2014

Thank you to local Blogger Joseph Morabito for giving us the info on last nights meeting! For videos from last night(he mentions them in his blog) and his previous blogs please go to http://wildomarrap.blogspot.com/2014/04/city-council-meeting-april-9-2014.html  

Tonight's meeting started with moment of silence for Joe Tunstall.

Then there was a presentation to Sean D'encarnacao — David A. Brown Middle School THINK Together and some of the players from their basketball program.

There was a proclamation that May is Mental Health Month.

In the Council Communications portion there were many interesting tidbits, so I figured I should just upload the video for you to take in the info for yourselves. Many various things mentioned by the five council members, and comments by John Garrett about May 3rd's Astronomy Night at Marna O'Brien park.

The next part was Western Riverside County Climate Action Plan Update

We already went over this at the Planning Commission meeting... but everything has to be presented to the council, so they had to sit through it too.

Look, it is flat out asinine to think that Wildomar, or Western Riverside County could impact Global Climate Warming Change (or whatever you want to call it now) a single iota. Dialing back on our carbon emissions is utter folly and a complete waste of time.

That isn't to say that any sane person is for wasting our resources, or in favor of pollution.
You could remove all of Riverside County from the map and it would have  ZERO  impact on Global Climate Issues (real or perceived).

You could remove  ALL  of California, all 38,000,000 of us (which is less than half of 1% of the world's population) and it would still have next to NO impact when China and India are constantly expanding, with plans to build more than 1,000 new coal plants planned worldwide

Sorry envirosexualists, but silly little things like that can be found in the WRCOG Climate Action Plan are a complete feel good waste of time. If you insist on thinking the emperor has a beautiful robe on, have at it.

I was happy to see Council Member Tim Walker not be on board with this and be willing to go on the record about it. His comments can be seen starting at  16:40  of the video below. This was a no vote issue, just that the city council receive and file the report.


Followed by the Murrieta Regional Trail Project

Again, if you are interested in this exciting project, take a look at the video (actually, listening will be fine here, there are no true graphics in it). You can always contact City Engineer Dan York and ask to see a copy of the power point presentation. You can also click here to see the highlights that I blogged about earlier on the topic.

Last of the meeting was Future Agenda Items. 

Ben Benoit had a couple of ideas.

The first was a new one for me. The suggestion to change Baxter Road to Wildomar Parkway. Though "Parkway" seemed to be out of place, when I think of roads like Laguna Niguel's Crown Valley Parkway, that stretches from Antonio Parkway all the way to Coast Hwy. Still, replacing the freeway visible Baxter with something that says the name of our town is appealing. After the meeting, Benoit told me that the suffix wasn't the important part.

Let's put it to a vote... I'd like to suggest Wildomar Highway J/K... Take a look at all these street suffixes and see which one you like best.  http://pe.usps.gov/text/pub28/28apc_002.htm

The second was to get the post office to finally change some of Sedco Hills addresses to Wildomar.
