Hello my name is Maia Maldonado somebody is going to translate? thank you
Maria Maldonado
31:06
How do we switch to spanish translation?
Maria Maldonado
37:01
I can not find it I have been trying too and it does not show.
Florentina Mejia
38:12
it should be next to the Q&A icon on the bottom
Justin Bonney
52:39
What is the projected approximate date for the traffic study in the best of your judgment?
Justin Bonney
53:39
Stagg/Strathern street ingress/egress onto Balboa are tricky as it is already. Strathern heading south onto Balboa is already a right turn only (albeit no one follows) so concern is there.

If this building is such a special project to Richard, Why has he not taken care of this property for the 15+ years he has owned it? Yes this will be the only project because the truth is you are apply to separate the property correct?
Guest
57:43
unbelievable!! Pit neighbor against neighbor that's healthy family environment!
Guest
01:01:10
the park has been on police watch for over 10years.
Ruth Doxsee
01:04:13
We have a huge unhoused population that need housing and this will help.
plim11
01:04:22
😐
Gwendolyn Flynn
01:10:27
To the questioner concerned about security in the area, do you have data/facts that shows low-income and Section 8 recipients are dangerous people?
tu mama
01:11:21
Ah the gentrification
Guest
01:12:46
How many section 8 residents are in the park today?
Jeremy Pisanic
01:15:37
meeting ID is 81786124326
tu mama
01:15:57
Yeah and people think they own the street in front of their house and slash those peoples tires to residents who are just tying to get by
Guest
01:16:22
The gate is broken 9 months now.
Guest
01:17:50
there are many families and hard working people in the park, but the management has let some riff raff in and drugs are sold in the back, police are in many times.
Justin Bonney
01:18:37
We need more housing units, agree with you Ruth.
tu mama
01:18:45
Exactly you are just grouping those hard working families with the bad people it’s a very small amount that you are referring to
Maria Maldonado
01:18:57
People that are low income does not automatically mean they are dangerous ,money does not prove if your dangerous or not.
Guest
01:19:19
We do not need more housing,
Justin Bonney
01:19:25
Tripled
Justin Bonney
01:19:54
Quadrupled in some neighborhoods
Guest
01:20:11
No I disagree, this one building goes up.
Guest
01:20:26
two more there, move over and 4 and 2 more.
Gwendolyn Flynn
01:21:14
Thank you Torr L. well said!
Guest
01:21:16
This is just the first 8 story building. More parking more people.
Maria Maldonado
01:21:19
Seems like people are not worried about the residents that are going to basically get "'KICKED OUT'' majority of these people are hard working people in the park royale , also I feel like why make another ''apartment'' if theres already an issue with parking?
Guest
01:22:43
Trach now is $71 plus per month! Sewer, and water are a problem. The water broke that is why they had to fix it. Why has Richard not willing to fix the property until Now that he wants this building approved???
plim11
01:22:57
You say rent is going up and to offset cost you make more housing. Then when rent goes up again you take the rest of the park
Guest
01:23:41
These homes are homeowners, they have worked hard to own their American Dream!!!
Maria Maldonado
01:24:01
Seems quite abrsurd to make some ''low income'' NEW apartments if your now kicking low income people who actually need to live here.
Guest
01:24:22
Seems quite abrsurd to make some ''low income'' NEW apartments if your now kicking low income people who actually need to live here.
Guest
01:24:28
AGREED!!!!
Justin Bonney
01:27:16
Day care space is 464 sq ft on proposal
Justin Bonney
01:27:44
Yeo, so 879+464
Justin Bonney
01:28:01
1343 total
tu mama
01:28:03
Thank you Torr people’s home prices have not gone down and the amount of money you make does not represent who you are as a people, do not assume and group a small percentage of bad people with the rest
tu mama
01:28:14
And yes residents are basically getting kicked out it’s basic gentrification
Guest
01:29:03
Drug uses are in the Park Now!!!
tu mama
01:29:23
And how has the affected you personally?
tu mama
01:30:02
Not all drugs are bad some people need to medicate
tu mama
01:30:37
Yes wendylin!
Maria Maldonado
01:30:42
Im pretty sure there are drug users in rich areas too?
Ruth Doxsee
01:30:47
Will there be a manager living on site?
tu mama
01:30:54
Yes coke in the rich areas
plim11
01:31:21
I work at target. I probably help you with your groceries
tu mama
01:34:03
Yes daisy! Exactly were being forced out!
tu mama
01:34:26
Nope not bilingual
tu mama
01:34:48
No real info has been provided ALOT of families are confused
Guest
01:34:50
The property is splitting the park the back 125 homes will loose Rent control.
Maria Maldonado
01:35:01
Well said Daisy! Majority of us dont want to get kicked out here we have grown up here for years. And are hardworking residents.
Guest
01:35:39
Thank you Daisy!! thank you for advocating for the people who are losing their homes!!
Guest
01:36:18
It will change new owner will build in the back and buy off Saticoy for back area enterence!!
tu mama
01:36:27
It’s gentrification
A.L
01:36:44
Developer mentioned that they would be working with workers at Valley Community Healthcare. I worked at this non-profit for years. Many of these workers are low income because they dedicate their lives to serving un-insured individuals. Super responsible and dedicated people. Low income does not equal by any means dangerous people. I worked for the smallest stipend you can imagine because I wanted to serve the community.
tu mama
01:36:59
Well everyone is confused mr developer
Guest
01:37:19
The City approves the relocation Specialist NOT the project!!! They are being so unfair and not equitable!!!
tu mama
01:37:35
Because they know you’re trying to move them from their homes that’s why they don’t want to talk
tu mama
01:38:49
Would you want to talk to someone that is looking to remove you from your home?
Guest
01:39:57
WHO IS THE RELOCATION SPECIALITS??? Not Richards company!!!
Jeremy Pisanic
01:40:36
There is no relocation specialist since the project is not yet approved.
tu mama
01:40:40
Well bring the experts next time
Guest
01:40:52
Agreed!!! No specialist YET!!!
Guest
01:41:38
I hear of deals and favoritism. Yes YOUR FIRM Not from the court!!!!
tu mama
01:42:48
Thank you Denise
Steve Leffert
01:44:51
I tuned in late and my concern may have already been addressed. I am worried about this project setting a precedent for the rest of the area. High density housing adds to the traffic congestion. Even with the pandemic reducing traffic it is still miserable at the extended rush hours. If this project is duplicated throughout the area the little public transit that is available (busses) will slow as well.
tu mama
01:45:09
Lots of pompous self centered people that live around this park
tu mama
01:45:29
Yeah it’s your cats
tu mama
01:46:08
Just say you’re racist and move on
Guest
01:46:24
WE ARE NOT SAFE NOW !!!!
tu mama
01:50:38
Not safe from what? You seem fine to me right now being able to type your message
tu mama
01:50:52
Exactly Miguel!
jjjj
01:51:27
YES
tu mama
01:51:29
THANK YOU
Maria Maldonado
01:51:30
EXACTLY
jjjj
01:51:34
THANK YOU
Justin Bonney
01:51:44
YEs, have some great people I know, bravo!
tu mama
01:51:47
ME IM EDUCATED
tu mama
01:52:15
BOOM
Maria Maldonado
01:52:19
EXACTLY
tu mama
01:52:29
it’s all we got
tu mama
01:52:59
We did not have the advantages a lot of other people have had
Maria Maldonado
01:53:54
Also were getting kicked out basically and not all of us have the advantage to boom go getting a nice home.
Terri Taylor
01:54:32
Well said Miguel.
tu mama
01:54:43
Especially due to the color of our skin we have not had the opportunity a lot of those making their pompous comments have had
A.L
01:55:03
Buena suerte Miguel!
Maria Maldonado
01:56:01
There are children here just wanting to live here and be successful in life to make their parents happy.They just want to live and not be homeless. I simply do not believe this project should be made.
jjjj
01:56:03
YES
tu mama
01:56:06
Yesssssssss they want to separate usssssss
Dinosaurio.rawr
01:58:47
He loves money
tu mama
01:58:57
If you want to kick us out you will need to make it very worth our while
Maria Maldonado
01:59:28
We have also lived here for years our community is like a family.
Terri Taylor
01:59:39
I am so very sorry for your suffering at the park.
Justin Bonney
02:02:21
Well I could try
Justin Bonney
02:03:19
You are in a tough spot.
Guest
02:03:20
It is in your application to divide your property!
Justin Bonney
02:04:56
That;s right
tu mama
02:05:18
A lot of us, especially the newer generations really are working hard every day trying to pull our families out of poverty and we work hard every single day for what we have just to get it ripped out from under us and start over. If we are being forced out be prepared with substantial packages for every single one of us.
Justin Bonney
02:06:51
That's true TJ
Terri Taylor
02:08:08
I just do not want the project build here where I live. I am not against this type of project but it will ruin this area.
Guest
02:10:14
true Terri !!
Terri Taylor
02:10:14
I do not approve this project.
Guest
02:10:50
Thank you Anna !!!!
Florentina Mejia
02:12:49
you are not thinking about the mobile residents and make no comment on it
Guest
02:13:11
We are all in this together as people loose their home and their lives to move in more renters?
Gino Pesanti
02:13:14
Are you supporting Miguel and Anna?
Guest
02:13:37
Yes Steve 8 Stories!!
Terri Taylor
02:13:46
That’s right Steve. Yes,yes, yes.
Terri Taylor
02:14:00
Yes,
Justin Bonney
02:14:06
That's due to poor public policy by local and state leadership
Guest
02:14:28
Justin do you even live in Lake Balboa?
plim11
02:14:45
Love you anna
Terri Taylor
02:14:52
there are already so many accidents, racing, and noise from the traffic on this street.
Justin Bonney
02:14:57
Yeo, born and raised
Sensei Liz
02:15:06
How do you get out on Balboa if it is bumper to bumper traffic? It already gets lots of traffic.
Justin Bonney
02:15:08
Yep
Anna
02:15:12
Absolutely not.
Guest
02:15:13
Do you live across the street?
Justin Bonney
02:15:18
Yep
Justin Bonney
02:15:42
Guest? Can you share your name?
Florentina Mejia
02:16:00
why ?
Guest
02:16:37
2 towers are on the property now.
Justin Bonney
02:16:42
always available to talk, dialogue, debate and understand..
Steve Leffert
02:17:01
No plans for cell tower NOW doesn't mean it won't happen upon completion of the project.
Justin Bonney
02:17:27
Very true Steve
Maria Maldonado
02:18:55
She said way more than that.
tu mama
02:19:05
Definitely way more
Gino Pesanti
02:19:17
Yes, way more
A.L
02:19:33
Good point Steve Leffert
Maria Maldonado
02:19:36
That is not fair someone shoudlve translated for her so people can undertsand what she said.
tu mama
02:20:04
Yeah I have a lot to say
Anna
02:20:09
Yesss she made a lot more points please address her concerns as the makes it clear bilingual language is not being a priority to you
A.L
02:20:15
Spanish-speaking people should have a real voice. I would have been happy to translate word by word.
Justin Bonney
02:20:25
~43k each
Florentina Mejia
02:20:44
well get a translator don't you have one
tu mama
02:20:44
Did you say 1 million?
Justin Bonney
02:20:56
He did.
tu mama
02:20:59
That’s is 43k each that is nothing
tu mama
02:21:20
Not even enough to buy a decent car
Justin Bonney
02:21:24
It is rare to see market rate mutlfamily with 50% of the total units.
Jeremy Pisanic
02:21:37
There is interpreting available in the Spanish channel
Terri Taylor
02:21:38
Just build it somewhere else!!!!
Guest
02:21:38
The Park IS affordable!!!
Maria Maldonado
02:22:01
She also said that its just like hurtful risking one life for another life. Basically I agree Because us the residents are basically getting kicked out for another life. (to the woman who was speaking spanish)
Terrel Miller
02:22:45
Zoning change = inappropriate structure. Slippery slope for this size and type of building. This is a selfish travesty by the developers who are ripping away the homes of those that have lived at the location for decades. Shameful!!
Guest
02:23:18
He never said what the Zone change is or the property they are splitting!!
Guest
02:24:05
helping the community by KICKING the people out who live there?????
A.L
02:24:55
Maybe we should vote on this after the residents of the mobile home have been offered their packages and let us know if they feel relocation is something they want.
Terri Taylor
02:25:15
The zone change allows them to build this high-rise. and change the landscape forever in this area. Soon will will look like Ventura blvd.-every inch of sky space taken
tu mama
02:25:41
Each of these mobile homes go for at least $75k, our property values have actually gone up since our purchase and you want to pay out only around 43k each? For these families to start over when they’re already comfortably established with their homes??
Terrel Miller
02:25:47
@ Terri Tay - agreed!
tu mama
02:26:30
No x’s 1 million
Dinosaurio.rawr
02:26:32
Your really not considering what your asking of these families. To move and start new
Florentina Mejia
02:26:36
all you carry is about money
tu mama
02:26:37
Or 43k each
Florentina Mejia
02:27:15
you did not answer the most important questions about the mobile residents
A.L
02:27:29
I appreciated hearing from everyone and getting to know everyone’s perspectives.
Dinosaurio.rawr
02:27:57
May god bless you guys
tu mama
02:28:01
I’m definitely going to get more involved now because this is disgusting gentrification and removing people from their homes
Guest
02:28:05
Thank you!!!
Dinosaurio.rawr
02:28:26
Stay United!!!!!
