Scott Wiener's AB 50 stalls again

Desert Sun:
California’s controversial housing bill, which would have required cities and counties to change local zoning laws to allow for new, denser housing near job centers and public transportation, died in the state Senate Thursday morning, four votes shy of the support needed to advance the legislation to the Assembly.

The measure has deeply divided stakeholders for more than a year, and lively debate on the Senate floor before an initial vote was taken on Wednesday stretched to two hours. The bill was narrowly defeated 18-15 on Wednesday afternoon, with six senators declining to vote, including Republican leader Shannon Grove, R-Bakersfield, who was in Washington, D.C. It was re-introduced Thursday morning in a final effort to get the bill through before the Jan. 31 deadline, but still failed.
I haven't looked into the local implementation details, but it sounds like the bill would allow at least four-story buildings near the downtown 101 transit hub. Perhaps higher than four stories, and perhaps further along transportation corridors.

  1. Look to see who voted yes. And if that person is in your district, vote them out. This is simply another way to ruin small towns such as Encinitas. And take a wild guess what party these clowns belong to. Go ahead, take a guess. These are children in adult bodies with A.D.D

  2. Hopefully we'll see less projects like Pacific Station, that concrete abortion built by Julie Thunder's family.

    1. You must have gotten mixed up.

      Did you mean Julie Swetnick, right?

    2. No. The Thunder family are direct profiteers in the destruction of our community character.

    3. Thunders company did not build Pacific View. That developer was dewalt. You are clueless. At most Thunders company was a small sub. You sound like an ignorant fool. Most be tied to Blakespear.

      Intelligent residents that want to preserve a beach town will vote for Julie. If you want downtown Oside with tons of sketched out bums, vote blakespear. the choice is clear.

  3. Let's be real clear.

    Liberal Democrats are absolutely desperate as we can see by the complete waste of of time and taxpayer money going on in DC.

    The California strain of Liberal Democrats is much worse. The California stain of Liberal Democrats are live in a fantasy world.

    They used to be reasonable human beings whereas one could possibly see the error of their ways.

    Now the strain will stop at nothing.

    They will commit fraud and use every working hour to cover it up and make up stories.

    No sane person with half a brain believes the garbage they spew.

    The Democrats in California should be thrown out as every single one of them couldn't notice the truth if it hit them in the ass.

    There will be history books written about how corrupt they are.

    I could go as far to mention that if you support democrats you belong in prison, but I won't.

    Good day sir

    1. Do any of you actually believe that if Republicans had a super majority they would be any less corrupt? Ultimately 99% of all politicians vote in favor of the money.

    2. Just look at what is happening in Washington DC today - there was an eye witness as to what happened, and he won't be allowed to testify. All the back and forth about what really happened could be put to an end, but no.

      I fear for our next election.

    3. Thank you 10:23. You are spot on. And as Dennis Prager states, "everything the left does, fails". No truer words were ever spoken.
      And for the rest of you. Read "Liberalism is a Mental Disorder" by Dr. Michael Savage.
      And, think about the foaming at the mouth gavin newsom stealing five BILLION dollars from the gas tax to fix roads. He promised and he lied. His recall is in full swing. Another America hating leftist

    4. Civil rights didn’t fail. Medicare didn’t fail. Social security didn’t fail. Clean air and water acts didn’t fail (notwithstanding current efforts to undermine). Women’s rights didn’t fail. Workplace safety didn’t fail.

      You’re welcome.

    5. 10:40 the America hating left FAILED to provide ample proof of wrong doing. That was on them. You have no idea what this so called witness was going to say or not say.
      But Schiff for brains failed again. Lie after lie and you still don't get it. The defense team mopped the floor with the fools and yet, "it's someone else's fault the America hating left failed" There is not hope for the children in adult bodies.

      Delete
    6. 8:10...you again. According to the America hating left there is no civil rights, Social Security is failing according to the left, Medicare is ruining the Federal budget according the left, Women rights/workplace safety? Now you just make up anything and claim the left did it?
      Well then, what about the KKK and Jim Crow laws?
      You are curiously living in a make believe world as according to you, conservatives want dirty air, unsafe working conditions, no Medicare for anyone, no Civil Rights? Earth to 8:10 time to study your lessons, you are failing.

    1. Everyone knows if you want someone who will listen to citizens and stand up to the concrete contractors, you should elect a concrete contractor/loud mouth Trumper who shouts down her neighbors in public meetings.

    3. 10:34 - "Thunders company did not build Pacific View."

      Nice try. They did the concrete work. In my book, that is part of building Pacific View.

    4. Thunder didn’t build Pacific Station. They only built the concrete part. . .

      Of a building made entirely of concrete.

      Can’t makes this stuff up.

    5. They were a vendor like any other. Blakespear folks scared for their queen bee are going to hit a giant wall of snoooooze with this one. There's simply no there there.

      Blakespear minions' time would be better spent figuring out how to spin her constant missteps. Good luck with that one!

    6. “They were a vendor like any other.”

      Except the electrical and painting subs didn’t build a concrete monstrosity we all have to look at.

      When we look at that building, it’s not the work of the landscaper or the plumber that makes it a disaster. It’s whoever poured millions of dollars of concrete and made a fortune in the process.

    7. Not only did Julie and family make their money from building it (look at their site). They build plenty of other mega projects around the county...and are a proud member of everyones favorite boogeyman the BIA.

  6. You people are nuts. You blame a builder but state nothing about the people that gave them the permit to do it !!!!
    It's like not blaming the state government of California for this up-zoning nightmare. Try peeking outside of your blinders.
    Wake the hell up !!!

    1. Hey Thunderhole, it was your buddies Stocks, Bond, and Dalager that approved it, and we got rid of them for doing so. I hope you are enjoying the profits made from the worst project in our city’s history.

      Another reason your argument is faulty: if the city granted you a permit to be an asshole, it’s still your decision and your personal responsibility whether you want to be an asshole. Deciding that your personal profit is more important than preserving community character is being an asshole. You can’t be trusted.

      Delete
    2. So the City didn't o.k the permit? So, no concrete nothing? Contractors and subs should be ashamed?
      Only thatched roof huts with dirt walkways should line the street with greasy long haired burnouts with a far away look in their eyes as residents...right?
      The ones that think that tie dye is a fashion?
      Ease up...life is to short to be so angry. Smoke something, have a cocktail, eat a brownie.
      And NO life guard stations. Only a beach chair is needed.

  7. You get to say the city should not have approved Pacific Station if you are proud enough to feature it on your web page and boast that the building “blend(s) in nicely with the beach town’s ecclectic retail district.” (http://thunderjones.com/project7_pac.html)

    You don’t get to say the city should be fighting the BIA, when your family business is a paying member, financially backing the BIA lawsuits (https://www.biasandiego.org/web-2-0-directory/thunder-jones-contracting-group-inc/).

    You don’t get to say that you will “listen” to the citizens when you have a reputation for shouting down your neighbors at public meetings.

    You don’t get to wrap yourself in the banner of populism when you were a leader in a group that cooped the names of hundreds of citizens who signed on to a non-partisan petition that turned and endorsed a slate of right-wing candidates without consulting those who signed, or offering them a way to withdraw their names.

    The Barstow Thunderhole is a hypocrite and a hack.

  10. The same folks that are bashing Julie Thunder are the same folks that believed the super bowl halftime show was an excellent performance.

    The same folks that believe Adam Schiff has moral decency.

    The same folks that think the homeless drug camp was a good idea.

    The same folks with Bernie signs on their lawn.

    The same folks who think Joe Biden is a respectable human being.

    The same folks that think Obama was not the most corrupt president in the history of the US.

    The same folks that think sea level rise the greatest problem of our generation.

    IYI's - the lot of them. (fooled by randomness)

    1. I believe Adam Schiff has moral decency.
      I think the homeless parking lot was a bad idea borne of a back-room deal with the sole intent of upzoning the Leichtag property.
      I voted for Bernie.
      I voted twice for Obama.
      I support Julie.

      Everyone please remove your national party nametags and get behind someone who will be honest and push for what the people want, not a party agenda like we saw with Stocks and Gaspar, and now Blakespear and Kranz.

      Come on folks, use your brains.

    2. If you voted for grabbing pussy and mocking people with disabilities, then you can keep your mouth shut about the "morality" of the Super Bowl halftime show. Sit your fake ass down and NEVER speak of morals again.

    1. Yeah, good luck with that. Googling publicly available information and posting it is not illegal. Especially when the person is a public figure running for office, and the information is relevant to voters. High-density housing and the BIA lawsuit are definitely valid public issues in the 2020 Encinitas election. If a candidate has profited from a family business building high density stack and pack housing, and is funding and supporting the BIA as a member, those are definitely valid issues for public discussion.

      I think your threat of police intervention is simply because you don’t like the information, and can’t refute it because it’s true and people have provided links to go see for themselves. If so, your threat is an attempt to shut people up, and prevent the spread of accurate and relevant information. If that is your intent, then you can fuck right off.

  15. I only pop in to Encinitas Undercover once in a while, on lunch break. It's entertaining like Jerry Springer. There is some really low-quality thinking in Encinitas it seems, but I hope it is just one or two outliers posting a lot and not a representation of the general populace.
