Why Marinwood CSD does not respect your opinion
Marinwood CSD director, Izabela Perry explains why she will not listen to the public remarks on the Negative Declaration for the Marinwood Maintenance Compound. She explains that "experts" obviously are more informed and better educated. She places little value to listening to the public. The public comments pointed out factual errors such as the violations of environmental law, inaccurate, misleading data and the size of the massive compound which is inconsistent with use of the park. It is Ms. Perry that needs education. Clearly, she thinks "expert opinion" should be above reproach despite the obvious financial incentives for consultants to state opinion in support of the project. The architect and the Marinwood CSD met quietly behind closed doors to create a project which doubles the size of previous proposals and will not divulge its expected cost. Izabela Perry "respects" your opinion only if it agrees with "experts". Izabela was borne and raised in a Communist country which may explain her obsequeous belief in political functionaries and experts and her contempt for democracy.
Update: June 2019 = The Marinwood Maintenance Facility architects fees are over 300% of original estimate of $12,000. Former Marinwood CSD politician, Bill Hansell is acting as the architect and has had his plans rejected due to its non compliance with county building guidelines. Many of the "errors" such as massive size of the compound, the awkward drive through design and deceptive land site design were identified by the public that the Marinwood CSD refuse to acknowledge. Such arrogance has cost the district thousands which would be better spent on facilities repair.
Had the district used a site plan offered by Irv Schwartz in 2017 and installed a pre fab unit, it would be built by now and cost less than Bill Hansells unfinished drawing.
The Marinwood CSD is wasting your tax dollars.
What do YOU think should be done about this?
