  Tuesday, July 18, 2000 SA il along Y law- Lassen Coun- Susanville City last week to a redevelop- the city. - Was speaking as as a supervi- said, "don't down be- citi- legal con- area Su- at the 12, meeting. Senior Nu- menu for the fol- is as follows. arine and 2- buttermilk are meal unless 18 Jllly 19 2O hints loudly at suit against city But blanketing one-half to two- thirds of the city as being available for redevelopment, "really pushes beyond the boundary of acceptability," Chapman said. At a meeting the week prior, County Administrative Officer Bill Bixby said the county is balking at the ordinance that would set up the redevelop- ment plan because it would shift $12.3 million in taxes from the city to the county over the next 40 years. At the July 12 Bixby contin- ued his opposition. "I would like to remind the council that the state legisla- ture intended the adoption of redevelopment plans and prop- erty tax shift to be used only in those exceptional and com- pelling cases where blight is significant and even an over- whelming problem for a com- munity," Bixby said. "To the extent you are being advised that you can find blight because other cities, un. der similar circumstances, have done so does not make it right," Bixby added. "The truth is that a lot of cities abuse the redevelopment law and get away with it because they are not challenged...Would it really create that much of a hardship to delay the project for a year to allow appropriate discus- sions between all affected agencies to take place?" Backing Bixby's statements, McCain noted the ordinance has Councilman Vern Temple- ton's handsome architectural firm office at Riverside and Alexander Avenue in a blight- ed area. "Vern Templeton's office is blighted?" asked McCain. "Re- development should be used where values are decreasing. You're trying to redevelop ar- eas where property values are increasing." The plan could be finalized with a second reading of the ordinance at future meetings of the council but Chapman, Councilman Doug Sayers and Jim Fleckenstein all said the environmental report for the plan should be finalized before it becomes city law. Because of that, Sayers and Fleckenstein voted against the ordinance. Mayor Mary Fahlen, councilman Lino Cal- legari and Vern Templeton voted to pass it. "A vote tonight prejudices the outcome of the final EIR." Chapman told the council. "I question whether yQu can do it...We're trying to be a partner in redevelopment and would like to work on this with you." "I have concerns also," Say- ers said of the environmental reports' lack of finality. "It's putting the wagon before the horse, I don't know what's in the EIR." "I see a lot of potential good for redevelopment," Flecken- stein told the Times after the meeting. "I wasn't comfortable voting for it without counsel about the EIR," he said, refer- ring to City Counsel Kathleen Lazard's absence from the meeting.
