The Authority could also add more gates in their S/W Quadrant property, and without going through the PUC 21661.6 (e) approval process

One of the things that first struck us about the inclusion of a larger Southwest Quadrant proposal to the main Measure B “adjacent property” consideration on the ballot was this basic question:

Why?

Why talk about it at all? At first look, the idea seems to have always been that the negotiated agreement makes the “adjacent” B-6 plan the main project of discussion and newsworthiness  — the one that everyone’s been talking about — but now with a possible alternative S/W Quadrant terminal plan thrown into the works, and with little public fanfare (this isn’t the one that they’ve been threatening us with if we all vote “no.” That would be a smaller terminal– this S/W would be bigger, and would supposedly need part of B-6 to make it complete).

Albano’s “impartial” analysis is confusing about this new terminal proposal  (to the public), but the Authority and the council have apparently agreed that if the Authority wants to go this S/W Quadrant route in the end, they’ll drop the other contested site and only use this “adjacent property” as some kind of turn-around or loading zone area. The main terminal will instead be located on the S/W Quadrant.

Now we’ve been hearing alot lately about how a certain PUC code provision requires council approval before the Measure B acquisition-of-property agreement can be amended from its original negotiated and agreed upon use. In fact, the boosters are enthusiastically citing this law to (now) claim that a future 14-gate terminal cannot be enlarged without an additional layer of City of Burbank protection and approval. So don’t worry about it people.

This legal review though does NOT apply to the Authority’s current property which is not subject to this decades-long acquisition rigamarole. That is, the older property that they admittedly now hold out the slim possibility of building their replacement terminal on, and that Albano acknowledges in our voter pamphlet as perhaps then needing some of that new B-6 property for ancillary and “loop” uses if they do.

But let’s say they go the main route and build their terminal as they’ve been saying they want to if “B” wins on Tuesday. Since the S/W Quadrant property site is not subject to PUC 21661.6 (e) consideration, why couldn’t it then be used for future gate expansion on that new terminal located on B-6 A1? The one that the Burbank  voters approved on November 8, 2016?

It’s something to think about. It would mean that their current property adjacent to the about-to-be acquired “adjacent property” at B-6 is eminently expandable. By talking about it so readily, and by bringing it into the Measure B mix, did they also let it slip that it might just end up being used for something?

Like a multi-gate annex to a new “14-gate” terminal on the “adjacent property” that you all voted “Yes” on tomorrow? Again, why talk about S/W at all in a non-blackmail, tit-for-tat locational way?

    Anything is possible with these people. They lie so much It’s impossible to keep up.

  2. The musings of one sick individual

    The now famous late night ramblings of Gary Bric

    Gary Bric:
    Doesn’t surprise me those that oppose Measure B. David Gordon, (Dr. No), Mike Nolan and all the rats that follow the Pied Piper. Keep drinking the Kool-Aid everyone. Oh yeah the runway is currently less than 300 feet from the center of the runway and if you build a new one it has to be 1000 feet. Safety must not mean anything. Shame you folks never had a chance to Meet with the FAA like some of us, you would change your tune. 14 Gates, runways don’t change and no easterly takeoffs for planes over 12,500 pounds. VOTE YES ON MEASURE “B”.

    Gary Bric:
    Yes cheers to you. The rats are those that at every meeting are those followers of guess, you know who, basically Dixie Flyer, ’nuff said.

    Gary Bric:
    When they build it of course there will be more Restaurants. Where do you think people will eat when most Airlines don’t feed you anymore. Yes Restaurants and concessions are not about safety. I guess if you have a flight with a few hour lay over you should brown bag it. Come on.

    Gary Bric:
    Forgot to mention and I quote from Roy Wiegand that says …… FYI: We are trying to get the word out quietly, not posting on Social Media, tomorrow morning at 10:00 am in front of the Little White Chapel we will be holding a No on measure B press conference. So let me guess, Dr. No and the Pied Piper and his rats, the Avon radicals and the Screenland folks that didn’t want side walks but love them now.

    Gary Bric:
    And this shit about calling someone on Christmas Day about changing a vote because a developer got to me, and I thought HRC was a liar

    Gary Bric:
    Now Tony, get that hair out of your ass. Sorry dude no one every bought me and drinking hardly. Old Dixie Flyer would drink more in a week than I do in a year, and lit at meetings, don’t think so. I was good for two or three soft drinks at every meeting but that’s it. So crawl back in your hole and don’t forget to collect those 25 signs you had made up when Measure B kicks ass. Now go crying to another loser on the Angry Blog ………………. is he still living with mommy.

      Why are we shocked at Bric’s behavior? Most City Council members are disgusted with everyone who doesn’t agree with them. What’s new?
      I’m jealous of Mike Nolan’s, Semi’s, and Dr. Gordon’s intellect. Jerks wasting their time (with all the insults) should be flattering to them. When people are really losers, nobody gives a rat’s ass.
      Residents have just about had it with all the antics going on. I have a feeling that a lot of control freaks are in for a big surprise!

      I’m surprised your comments about mayor bric, thank god we had ppl like him in the council and fought for a new terminal like he did. It’s like out recent election, it’s over, get over it.

  3. Avon Radical

    Sorry but this needs to be shared. Yes on B supporters have given up debating the issue and are now just deleting posts and attacking everyone who opposes B. Here’s what former Councilman and Yes on B booster Gary Bric had to say on Facebook this weekend. Thanks to my neighbors for the heads up.

    United together as Americans there is nothing we can not achieve, divided by Hillary we will continue to see things get worse for all of us. Maga3x bring three friends or family members to vote Trump !

    I am not voting for Anthony Portantino for state senate tomorrow due to the fact he is part of the Gary Bric crowd. He is supported by Bric.

    I am also not voting for Laura Friedman for assembly. I received this mailer that was really just a promotion for Brics bar from her, I am guessing it was payback for his support or something.

    Join me in not voting for the Bric crowd. No Portantino and NO Friedman (who is on the airport authority)

  6. Terry

    I would never drink the kool aide from Bric, I believe it will make you sick as a dog.

  7. Frank

    ” Shame you folks never had a chance to Meet with the FAA like some of us, you would change your tune.”

    So says Brick who I think was in all sorts of secret closed meetings, so why didn’t he bring those meetings out in public ? Oh I forgot it was so he could tell us know all the things we don’t know.

    This is so absurd. They keep things secret and behind closed doors and then name call voters because they don’t know what was done in secret. This whole group at city hall needs to be cleaned out in the next Burbank election. I will only vote for Gordon the rest of them need to be thrown out on their ears.

  8. Doug

    Reading the words of Brick here really reminds me of years ago when Brick went off sending threatening emails to Semichorus. Anybody else remember those emails and how insane then mayor Brick showed himself to be ?

  9. Rats and Radicals

    What is wrong with calling Dixie Flyer also known as Mike Nolan a rat ? Get your panties on straight he is a rat and a smelly one at that. We can all thank Mary Lou Howard for keeping his smelly self around. He and Jimmy boy need to move.

  11. Taxpayer

    If Bric and the others know so much, they should know enough to keep our existing terminal and protect the people of Burbank. Otherwise, they can keep their secrets to themselves, they are worthless because no one can verify anything that is being said. How stupid is he, really?

  12. Anonymous 91501

    I would personally trust Mr Nolan any day over Mr Bric, Bric is rather shallow and mindless and from what I hear quite the hate filled bigot

  13. Joey

    Always funny to watch old man Bric talk about other people when he himself is dumb as a rock and runs a roach motel of sorts. He hates Nolan because Nolan runs rings around him when it comes to brain power.

  14. The Whip

    We thought gary brick died. Hope is Eternal.

  15. The Whip

    Mike is Brilliant. If Gary Bric had Balls and a Brain, he would be dangerous.
