VIDEO: Plan Bay Area report

The “One Bay Area” group reported back to its unelected bureaucratic masters June 10, during joint meeting of ABAG and MTC with plans on whitewashing fraudulent results of politically staged community planning events that would be used to justify so-called “smart growth” plans in the nine county Bay Area. Below is the latest YouTube video of concerned citizens fighting back against the “One Bay Area” Agenda 21 plan. The entire meeting was taped. The public comments start at 1:16.In addition to the report, the meeting included public input, mostly from our side (The East Bay Area Tea Party and many others). See clip below the fold.

    Patriots,
    The MTC/ABAG meeting to vote on whether to adopt 5 alternative visioning scenarios for the Bay Area is happening tomorrow!!
    Two weeks ago a group of us showed up and opposed their action to vote on this. We were successful in stopping them. They are reconvening to try to push it through again. HELP US Stop the UN Agenda 21 plan for the Bay Area tomorrow.

    You can view the video of us opposing their plan at the last MTC/ABAG mtg:
    http://www.halfwaytoconcord.com/video-plan-bay-area-report/

    We need people to show up tomorrow and oppose the vote to continue on with this visioning process.
    The meeting is at:
    MTC (Metropolitan Transportation Commission) Headquarters in Oakland.
    101 8th Street
    Wed. June 22nd at 9:45am (tomorrow is my birthday. I’m going to spend it opposing this tyranny. Come join me.)

    Here’s a copy of the Agenda for tomorrow’S meeting: http://apps.mtc.ca.gov/events/agendaView.akt?p=1687

    Here are some talking points for tomorrow:
    1. We do not want “Stack and Pack” housing next to mass transit.
    2. We do not want Unelected Regional bodies like MTC and ABAG to dictate how and where the citizens of the Bay Area should live.
    3. We do not want our tax payer money spent on UN Agenda 21 programs that infringe on our freedoms
    4. The visioning process was flawed. There was no monetary values associated with the items that were presented.
    5. The visioning process did not address what jobs would be available in the future and where
    6. No businesses were consulted in this process.
    7. This is unconstitutional for regional governments to dictate how and where local communities should grow in the future
    8. We do not want regional unelected agencies to dictate housing. This has never been done and is wrong.
    9. What is this all going to cost?
    10. Why are all the visions for all of our communities the same?
    11. Why did we pay GreenBelt Alliance and other non-profit govtmental agencies who have a stake in the outcome for this?
    12. Why are we the people not voting on this as a ballot initiative?
    13. Local cities have stated their future housing and job growth information was inaccurate making this visioning process worthless.

    We also need people to launch an email and letter writing campaign to all of the members of the board. If you cannot attend the meeting. Please send an email to one or all of the MTC/ABAG members. Their info is below.
