Assemblyman Travis Allen Stands in Support of Homeowners and Property Rights

Don’t Let Costa Mesa Become Irvine

Dear Mr. Editor-in-Chief,
Would you be interested in investigating the city of Costa Mesa’s desire to become “like Irvine”, aka, the model CC&R city, with regards to residential property rights (Title 20)? Instead of following due process or city procedures already in place for repeat offenders of Title 20, the planning commission recommends restricting use of my own private property for a non-operational vehicle. Adding more restrictions, doubling fines, adding new fines and the adage that living with rules similar to Irvine will increase our property values are the issues that drive our elected and appointed officials. By the way, collecting these fines will bring new revenue needed to contribute to the $16 million budget shortfall for 2010-11. I question why the council is not interested in preserving the rights my father fought for in WWII — preserving freedom, life and the pursuit of happiness without interference from government bureaucracy.
