You can only imagine the kind of vision these clowns have for your future.
From today’s Leader article about the mass destruction of those ficus trees on Magnolia, of which only a few are causing any problems:
Understanding that some residents and business owners would be shocked if all of the trees were removed at once, Sugars said they will be cut down at a staggered rate.
He added that it is important for residents to understand that, although it may be upsetting to see these trees that have been around for about 40 years go away, the decision to replace them was based on improving the city.
“When you run a city, you really have to think in decades and for future generations, and this is that kind of decision that’s being made,” Sugars said. “It’s unfortunate that these beautiful trees are going to go, but in the long run, it’s the best thing for the city, and we need to hand the city off to future generations in good shape. Leaving those trees in there would not be leaving the city in good shape.”
And packing in two thousand more apartments in Downtown Burbank is.
In other words, there’s no good reason to do it now — cutting down those trees — and so we’re trying to come up with some limpdick excuse to justify a stupid decision that a previous council made at the prompting of staff employees who were too lazy to have their own people maintain the trees, and which we won’t make any effort to undo.
Where btw is Golonski on this one? And how about going after Gabel-Luddy’s neighborhood next? Those old Rancho trees are getting pretty shabby.
Change is good, people!
