PUBLIC COMMENTS Public Comments are limited to 3 minutes per person. <br /> A. Lou Filipovich, 15376 Laverne Drive, spoke regarding the Ordinance <br /> related to the Joint Redevelopment Project. He said this project was <br /> intended to keep the State from raiding City and County funds under <br /> Redevelopment. He said the City's response to the document he <br /> submitted at the hearing said that elected officials are subject to the <br /> voters of each entity. He said the voters have the right to <br /> participate in this but are not being given the opportunity to do so. <br /> He said no matter how many workshops are held, it's meaningless because <br /> the people should participate. He said it doesn't cost a lot of money <br /> to get their opinion. He said the Plaza I and II Redevelopment <br /> Projects have not been successful . He said he would like to see them <br /> become successful with the taxpayers' support. <br /> B. Jerome Porter spoke on a number of matters. Mr. Porter said City <br /> elections should be held by District only. He said citizens are not <br /> represented by the people they want, and he does not want someone from <br /> another District telling him what to do. <br /> Mr. Porter said PAC's helped Mayor Faria obtain office; Mayor Faria <br /> said he ran unopposed in 1986. Mr. Porter said PAC's are illegal and <br /> illegitimate. <br /> Mr. Porter said, when his property was brought into the City from the <br /> County, the residents were told the zoning would never change; but, <br /> less than a year later, it was made O-R. He said hundreds of families <br /> are seeking the American dream to own a home. He said the zoning was <br /> changed in 1959, and the residents expected to have security that the <br /> zoning is part of their property rights. He said they want what they <br /> were promised. <br />
