Re: “Homeless project may not end up at Hillside Church

There is a large abandoned property on Park Ave in Pismo Beach. Maybe building a small studio complex and offering support housing, could be a possibility.

Re: “Lawsuit threatens Arroyo Grande Oil Field aquifer exemption

In addition, despite its anti-corporate stance, it has collected large donations from ExxonMobil. That should create an AHA moment for the reader, they claim to fight against oil and gas companies contamination issues worldwide, in the same breath they are taking donations from them. The Center for Biological Diversity allegedly has incorporated several times in 3 different states, has changed its name and address and merged into a holding company, which is not only puzzling, but also makes tracking its activities, officers, and funding difficult. For God's sake, when I tried to contact them. They were so paranoid about anyone contacting them on their cell phones. They only used untraceable call technology. I could go on and on.

Re: “Lawsuit threatens Arroyo Grande Oil Field aquifer exemption

What needs to be on the record is public disclosure, lack of fear from gag order laws and environmental attorneys willing to expose the truth and put a lid on these numerous legal issues that have plaque this County well over a hundred years. Taking the wimpy way out by negotiating half truths does not get to the bottom of the matter. Kern County and any other County deserves to have their land and water contaminated free, period. If you care about your own land and water than you should have a united front for everyone else. It's obvious to me that you believe everything people tell you instead of researching the mountain of evidences for yourself. The attorney's job is to tell the story and to tell it better than the other side and they have failed miserably.

Re: “Lawsuit threatens Arroyo Grande Oil Field aquifer exemption

The Center for Biological Diversitys should have done their homework correcty. There is validate proof of a spill or leak on the top portion of the hill across from the oilfield. Why that was never brought up during the court hearings, we will never know. I personally inform them by email and they did not give a rat'ass and and independently investigate this claim themselves.

That fact only, should have been the nail in the coffin to stop this project in it's tracks. There was no public acknowledgement and legal submission to the court record on water testing for local water wells In the area. Even when there's gag orders independently and as a whole we will never know because these records are sealed. So many lost legal opportunities went down the drain with there contaminated water source . So sad... Neighbors and worldwide folks, my word of advise next time you hire someone that's going to represent the people (tort attornies ) not a group of attorneys that represent the land only. We need new laws and helplines to report an environmental disaste too. And more important we need people that are not scared to expose the truth.

Re: “Carpenters' union sues SLO over Tank Farm project

Tank Farm Road Fire and Oil Explosion in 1926 is still affecting this community in San Luis Obispo.

The Central Coast Water Board should be sued for dereliction of duty.

The proposed construction on the vacant land of Tank Farm Road will do onsite Dewatering on their contaminated groundwater, what a joke. Where do they plan on discharging the poisoned water too with their ridiculous pre-treatment plan?

All the while knowing that folks that live in these affordable housing units on this property will not challenge the owners, property management, and the water board on the dewater cumulative plan on the procedures and toxic waste protocols.

The new tenants will not ask about the cumulative static water levels, or how close will the water wells will be to their aquifers, what are the final covers outline reports, who will monitor and report these deep injection wells too, or demand that they publicly show their permit to the public by the FDEP and the import report.

Instead, these people will be too scared to rock the boat and will become lifetime victims to your #engineeringcatastrophes graveyard.

Re: “Carpenters' union sues SLO over Tank Farm project

HomeFacts @ Tanks & Spills Information For San Luis Obispo

276 Tank Farm Rd, San Luis Obispo, CA 93401


Property Description:

276 Tank Farm Rd is a parcel of land located in San Luis Obispo, California and has a legal description provided by the local assessor of SLO:076383001. The account number for this parcel is SLO-076383001.

This parcel is owned by Union Oil Co Of Ca and can be described as a Vacant.
For more information regarding 276 Tank Farm Rd including construction details, assessments, previous owners, and sales data please look below.


Public Notice to San Luis Obispo County Officials and their Attorneys:

Would you build a house/commercial building on this land, that is the million dollar question?

All over the Country, many Planning Departments/ HUD/EPA are allowing greenfield projects, brownfield sites, superfund sites and underground oil spills property to be build on. When the owner of this land on Tank Farm Road admits that only 25% of the land will be cleaned up that should bring up red flags to every one in the community. It is a toxic tort case in the making.

If it is allowed to go through, my statement serves as a public disclosure notice and the city will be the fall guy and every one else that is aware of this contaminated site. I attend to alert everyone involved, that this land will depreciate and trapping anyone in this unfortunate situation is wrong and you will pay a price down the road. It is better to walk away from the deal now.

Also, this land owner had 8 years to clean up this property, it has only been several years. In addition, spills and fires like this can never be cleaned up, it stays in the ground/water indefinitely. There has been many lawsuits against the property owner of Tank Farm Road property on this very matter.

This property is on a fast track construction because the Governor will withhold the gas tax funds from SLO County if they do not build affordable housing. Maybe he should hear about this crooked deal.

The County doesn't not care enough about the residents/workers of this proposed property instead they will leave them vulnerable to poisoning by toxins waste within 5 to 9 years. The County needs to take on the role of protector instead of a ruler of incompetence's and greed. Enough said.
