I am often amused at how we in 29 palms are told that MCAGCC is a “National Asset,” and how it is eager to promote growth in its host city and county. Is the base is a good neighbor and our friend? Really? What is an asset?
- a useful and desirable thing or quality: Organizational abilityis an asset.
- a single item of ownership having exchange value.
a. items of ownership convertible into cash; total resources of a person or business, as cash, notes and accounts receivable, securities, inventories, goodwill,fixtures, machinery, or real estate ( opposed toliabilities
b. Accounting . the items detailed on a balance sheet
,especially in relation to liabilities and capital.
c. all property available for the payment of debts,especially of a bankrupt or insolvent firm or person.
d. Law . property in the hands of an heir, executor, or administrator, that is sufficient to pay the debts or legacies of a deceased person.
Well in our case, the tail wags the dog. The base is a regular commercial paradise. Every kind of store and facility you can imagine, The place is bustling and money goes right into the hands of Marine Corps Community Services (MCCS). All the while the majority of those who live in the basin are denied access to those commercial services. MCCS is like a velvet gloved Mafia that controls all commerce and community service activities on base in a manner that can only be considered as a government approved monopoly. While the lack of commercial competition and opportunity is one problem, an even more sinister activity is the successful control of local government and economic activity outside the gate of MCAGCC.
I recently posted a letter concerning hawking and peddling by the base, which raised a few eyebrows. We have a new letter. A new business man being pushed around. This new letter
fell from the sky and into my hands this morning and makes my little complaint minor in comparison.
I know that we keep hearing that the Base is all for economic growth in the town and it is the city itself that impedes the march to growth and prosperity. This new letter
sent to me seems to dispel the theory that the base is our friend and an Asset to the area.
A major developer has spent well over a million dollars, $23,000 alone to Charles LaClaire’s office to review his proposal only to be jerked around and delayed by MCAGCC’s heavy handed interference in local zoning laws and development codes.
Land along Condor Road from the Condor Gate to Adobe Road is for the most part zoned Commercial and Multi-family. A large developer wants to develop that area into a gated multi-family community with parks, swimming pools and neighborhood commercial opportunities. The area would be consistent with Multi-Family Base housing that is directly to the north.
Once again the base is demanding a 1000 foot buffer zone. and other restrictions that would make it difficult if not impossible to complete the project or use the land that the company already owns. This 1000 foot requirement is in every since of the word a “Taking” in the eyes of the law. If they wanted a 1000 foot buffer shouldn’t they be buying up that buffer?
Please download the letter
. Read it. You decide. Has the base gone too far in meddling in the legislative activities of Local Governments? Are they now going outside the base and deciding who the winners and losers are?
