Beware of the developerís measure for preservation of the La Sierra Hills on the November 4 ballot.The Riverside City Council passed a similar scheme in 2004.Former Mayor and Terry Frizzel, activist Yolanda Garland and small ranch owner Jean Heinl sued.The superior court judge ruled the plan illegal. It had to go to a vote of the people.

Today the developers, land speculators and their spin-doctors are putting a new suit on this ďbait-and-switchĒ scheme with 12 times the density, hoping to make hundreds of millions of dollars at the expense of your quality of life.They claim to save La Sierra hills, which are already protected from heavy development, but as a reward for this phony protection they give themselves nearly 2,000 housing units, paving over protected lands next to the Santa Ana Riverís Hidden Valley Wildlife Preserve. These units add 20,000 daily car trips, clogging already-congested local roads and freeways and causing more air pollution.
