Greetings all - it's time for a meeting!
We're hoping to have a surprise guest speaker at this event as well give us a little fun information on the area of Harmony, but in general we're due for a good old-fashioned legal and project update.
We are pleased to announce that the local Moose Lodge has agreed to let us utilize their space for meetings! We are incredibly grateful to Helen and Bob for allowing us to use their property for meetings, but as they have some upcoming travel we have been hoping for an indoor space that would mean they aren't forced to set up and tear down for us regularly since we outgrew Heskas. So put your antlers on and join us at the Moose Lodge, 6:30 PM on Tuesday the 23rd of May.
We're having a community fundraiser, raffle, and mixer next week at Heskas to help raise funds for our legal battle!
Fabulous prizes, Heska's world-famous spaghetti, green salad, and the company of some really great people. Adults are 10 dollars a plate, kids 8 dollars, and we have some amazing prizes for the raffle.
Please feel free to share the flyer and post around town, the more the merrier!

The City Council has closed public comments, but we expect responses to our raised concerns and the final vote to occur on this date. While we'd like to think they're listening to and representing our community, the tone of the last meeting felt like trying to stop a freight train by standing on the tracks waving a pompom for as much as the council engaged with the public. Forbidding applause and threatening to close the hearing wasn't quite the most "we're here to listen" sort of environment, and we objected to the restriction under the first amendment.
Be sure to read up on the Brown Act for public meetings, and your rights therein. We aim to be professional, but also to operate with respect to our legal rights.

The City Council is holding a public hearing on Harmony June 30th, at 6PM. It's critically important we come, speak out against the development, and that every single person take the time to introduce themselves to the Council and VOICE their disapproval of this project. Unlike the Planning Commission, these are elected officials, and we need to speak out against this Orange County profit ploy on our land. From bad financing, an unsafe area, and no water to support this development, there could not be a WORSE place to try to shoehorn in 3600 homes and 12000 residents. Make your voice heard!
Our presence is even more important at this meeting, we need to ensure they are looking in the eyes of the people they are impacting with this decision. Please plan on attending, and tell your friends and neighbors. By the way? This time, we're going to be prepared with our OWN seats if they can't seem to be provided. Sheesh.
