Supervisors looking at building a Great Pyramid in Irvine

No, I’m not joking.

On todays Board Agenda, the Board had a rather innocuous Consent Item which they pulled for discussion. The matter related to the disposition of some leftover County property from the former El Toro Marine Base.

PyramidDuring the discussion Supervisor Moorlach suggested that the staff be directed to look into the possibility of moving the County Seat, or at least significant amounts of Government operations to that currently vacant land.

Supervisor Bates chimed in suggesting that the County buildings be demolished and the vacant land in the Civic Center be converted to a Great Central Park in Santa Ana.

How nice of these people to make such a suggestion immediately after they decide to not seat the elected Supervisor from the First District, the home of the County Seat.

Since they decided to defer seating the new 1st District Supervisor for a week, why couldn’t they wait to direct staff on an issue, with an impact at least as significant to the First District, for a week.

Come on people, I know the election of the first Vietnamese-American member of the Board of Supervisors has turned your world upside-down; but that doesn’t mean you need to rush to move out of your current, albeit upside-down, pyramid.
Now that’s representative government for you.

    Oh please, the stupid, it burns like napalm. Supervisors have raped the county park system for years. Moorlach wants to get rid of regional parks, laying some off on cities and letting the Irvine Conservancy manage the wilderness parks, and Pat Bates is talking about spending hundreds of millions of dollars building new county facilities and building a new Santa Ana Great Park. Where’s theat money comin’ from?

    What a bunch of maroons.
