California Opposition to Agenda 21

This update was e-mailed by Patricia Evans, but it looks as if it was forwarded from Heather Gass:

"Through Regionalism, California is starting to merge counties and it's coming to a county near you very soon.
International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI): Local Governments for Sustainability's  job is to implement United Nation’s policies that restructure our representative form of government through global and regional development. Policies and programs take control from our representative government and put it into the hands of regional, non-elected boards. This allows elected officials to shirk their responsibilities. It turns us into a soviet system that is based on Regionalism. It facilitates both communism and fascism. Representative government with defined limits is the basis of a free and just society. ICLEI methods include infiltrating local government. Organization representatives seek to be hired into local planning departments or they provide “toolkits” to staff. Too many elected officials allow ICLEI to influence policy changes through the use of funding incentives and rewards

HISTORIC LAWSUIT AGAINST UN AGENDA 21

http://www.postsustainabilityinstitute.org/lawsuit-to-stop-agenda-21.html


The Post Sustainability Institute / Democrats Against UN Agenda 21 and Freedom Advocates are launching a legal challenge to PLAN BAY AREA/ONE BAY AREA (click for a pdf of the Plan)  " Strategy for a Sustainable Region"  PLAN BAY AREA is an aggressive implementation of UN Agenda 21's "islands of human habitation."  We believe that Priority Development Areas are the new wave of implementation of UN Agenda 21 in regional plans.  This prototype, when adopted in the San Francisco Bay Area, could then move across the United States.   We need your help to fight this.  DONATE. 

PLAN BAY AREA is an all-encompassing land use and transportation plan that regionalizes all 9 counties and 101 cities of the San Francisco Bay Area by limiting new construction to specific locations (only 4% of the land area) and requiring high density development: more apartments and condos on top of shops.  If cities want federal and state transportation dollars they will have to agree to this Sustainable Communities Strategies plan. 

PLAN BAY AREA is UN AGENDA 21.  ICLEI ( International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives ) WORKED ON CREATING THIS PLAN. 

PLAN BAY AREA violates both the 5th and 14th amendments to the U.S. Constitution.  The 5th amendment guarantees property owners the right to just compensation, and the 14th amendment guarantees equal protection.

PLAN BAY AREA violates voter-approved urban growth boundary ordinances.  Even though voters all over the Bay Area have voted to determine where their urban growth boundaries should be, PLAN BAY AREA actually nullifies these boundaries by restricting development to very small locations in just some cities. The plan dictates that 80% of future residential and 66% of future commercial development must be built in these Priority Development Areas. If you own property, any property whether it’s a house or an office building, outside of the PLAN BAY AREA 4% Priority Development Area you may not be able to add a granny unit, add on to your building, or develop your lot.  PLAN BAY AREA is valid for 25 years!  Radical building restrictions lasting for over a generation will cripple land value and your ability to start and maintain your business or residential plans.   For a pdf of the MAP please click here--orange areas are Priority Development Areas.



                                                                              GOT PROPERTY RIGHTS? 
                                                                            NOT UNDER PLAN BAY AREA

                                                                                      JOIN THE LAWSUIT

     PLAN BAY AREA violates the 5th Amendment of the US Constitution by taking property rights without just compensation.  By the creation of Priority Development Areas, this Plan restricts 80% of residential development and 66% of commercial development to just a few small areas of your city--until the year 2040.  If your property is outside of the PDA (96% of property is outside) you will likely not be able to build or expand your building--and you won't be paid for this loss.

      

     PLAN BAY AREA violates the 14th Amendment of the US Constitution--the Equal Protection Clause.  Owners of properties in the Priority Development Areas will receive development permits at a rate of approximately 80 times more than owners of property outside of the Priority Development Areas.

      

     PLAN BAY AREA violates voter-approved Urban Growth Boundary ordinances.  Because the Priority Development Areas are within the UGBs but are much smaller restricted areas they are in violation of ordinances that clearly state that development must be encouraged out to the limits of city services: Urban Growth Boundaries. These ordinances are found throughout the Bay Area and cannot be changed without voter approval.


     PLAN BAY AREA permanently strips all development rights from rural properties in the nine county Bay Area.  Plan Bay Area is effectively taking conservation easements on all rural lands without paying for them. 


     PLAN BAY AREA restricts development rights of property within the Priority Development Areas, too.  Construction will be limited to mixed-use high density Smart Growth development.  Existing buildings are likely to be out of compliance with your city's General Plan (legal non-conforming) and permits to make additions or changes will likely not be granted.


     PLAN BAY AREA says that cities don't have to comply with it but that is a lie.  If your city wants state or federal transportation dollars over the next 28 years, it will have to comply with PLAN BAY AREA.  Cities have already created Priority Development Areas in compliance with PLAN BAY AREA.

      
   PLAN BAY AREA affects every property owner in the entire nine county 101 city Bay Area.  Only the 1% big developers with their connections to elected and appointed officials will take advantage of tax credits and subsidies.


The only lawsuit which can block the implementation of Plan Bay Area is one that challenges the PLAN itself. Rosa Koire, The Post Sustainability Institute, and Michael Shaw, Freedom Advocates are launching a legal action to stop PLAN BAY AREA.  Their legal team is compiling the cause of action and writing objections to be entered into the legal record. Legal action is the only way to stop PLAN BAY AREA.

ICLEI Primer: Your Town and Freedom Threatened

http://www.freedomadvocates.org/articles/illegitimate_government/iclei_primer:_your_town_and_freedom_threatened_20090804364/

Right now, in your town and neighborhood, policies are being implemented that will ultimately eliminate your freedoms and destroy your way of life. You need to know what's going on to stop this process. Many town officials are selling us out to global regional development with help from the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI): Local Governments for Sustainability. ICLEI is used as one of the mechanisms to undo the political recognition of unalienable rights.



ICLEI uses the false premise and outright lies of anthropogenic global warming to change our way of life, for the worse!
ICLEI: Local Governments for Sustainability promotes Local Action 21, Local Agenda 21 and other United Nations programmes implemented through local town councils, planners, mayors and local governments.
Why should you care?
Social engineering and behavior modification are some of the true objectives being implemented under the guise of environmental and climate protection. This is accomplished by exploiting people's desire to maintain a healthy and lasting environment in the name of "sustainability." Here is an example of how ICLEI changes behavior, just like another organization called “Fostering Sustainable Behavior”.
It is also ICLEI’s job to implement United Nation’s policies that restructure our representative form of government through global and regional development (< click and then view slide show). Policies and programs take control from our representative government and put it into the hands of regional, non-elected boards. This allows elected officials to shirk their responsibilities. It turns us into a soviet system that is based on Regionalism. It facilitates both communism and fascism. Representative government with defined limits is the basis of a free and just society.
ICLEI methods include infiltrating local government. Organization representatives seek to be hired into local planning departments or they provide “toolkits” to staff. Too many elected officials such as Cool Mayors allow ICLEI to influence policy changes through the use of funding incentives and rewards. While some of these policies sound good on the surface, they result in consequences such as:
  • High-density housing scams
  • Traffic congestion
  • Open space where access is not allowed
  • Government “partnering” with favored private businesses and non-profit agencies, using your tax money
  • Undermining Constitutional administration of government
  • Managed control over your life
  • Mismanagement of public utilities
  • Prohibitions on natural resource management leading to increased fire hazards, lack of water, and private property restrictions,
  • Increased taxes, fees, regulations and restrictions
Is ICLEI running your town or coming to a town near you?
Are your elected officials being lured into enacting ridiculous rules and regulations in exchange for funding?  Do your elected officials know that there are long term consequences to their irresponsible actions?
Currently there are more than 550 communities in North America paying membership dues to ICLEI.  Upon becoming a member of ICLEI, members become governed by ICLEI Charter. If your community is one of these, you are paying for the loss of your unalienable rights.
