Santa Ana Artists Village Activists Still Getting the Run Around From City

OC Weekly’s Gustavo Arellano reported yesterday in his Notes from the Bananna Republic about the ongoing conflict between artists and business owners in the Santa Ana Downtown Artists Village and the City over the short lived Valet parking fiasco.

Earlier this month, AVASA sent Nelson a letter with many questions pertaining to the valet program–who authorized it, how much the program cost, and other pertinent questions regarding safety and handicapped-parking issues. In a response to AVASA obtained by the Weekly, Nelson answered none of them.

“Since the program has been suspended, we chose not to get into detailed answers to your questions as they are now mute.”

Good scoop Gustavo, looks like the attitude of the city hasn’t changed much at all. They still seem to feel that it is up to them to decide what the public is entitled to know.

Looks like we’re in for a New Year of more of the same from Santa Ana City Hall.

    Chris — I was reading the comments on Gustavoi’s story last night and I had to laugh when he challenged a commenter on the notion of accuracy. I’m still waiting for a correction to one of his posts on the lawsuit which I sent a couple of emails and left voice mail.
