Air pollution Reply: Sandy
This is from an old timer who asked me to post this:  Have been here since 1976, I remember a very different Lake Mathews and Gavilan Hills. I have seen too much change already, the last thing I want to see, hear or smell is a warehouse. I like seeing the stars at night. The more people you packed in the more problems you have. Don't need a gas station, grocery store or shopping centers. I can get all that in town then come home to my peaceful home. Sounds like some people might be living in the wrong place. Take Mira Loma for example, where they have warehouses, particulate pollutant levels are among the worst in the nation, according to environmental impact documents. They have some of the worst diesel pollution in the country. A USC study of 12 Central and Southern California communities found that Mira Loma children had the slowest lung growth and weakest lung capacity compared with similar areas — a handicap likely to affect them for life.  Particulates are what cause cancer". (This is not what I want for my community) "So this is why we do not need Warehusing." Sometimes you just can't have your cake and eat it too.

More on warehousingReply: Laurie
Here I go again with another little tidbit  to think about (ha ha).

Many may not be aware of this, but officials from the cities surrounding our community, for many years have repeatedly and publicly stated that THEY wish to see our community segmented with an industrial /warehouse corridor.

Just something to be aware of, and to take into consideration when county and other issues arise that could potentially contribute towards that end.

It hasn't happened -at least, not yet- in part because our community has an identity, is vocal, is recognized as active and participates in the process.  Our community residents take the time to be informed, to write letters, to attend meetings and hearings when necessary.

Question yourself:  do the benefits outweigh the drawbacks?  Why did you choose to live in this community?  Could the issue of the moment  (whatever it happens to be) affect that desire?  Your chosen lifestyle?   Could it act as a precedent for something that you do wish, or do not wish to see/live with?

WarehousingReply: BillB
Whoa Nellie, who is talking about warehousing in OUR area? To my knowledge, the only bruhaha about warehousing is in Moreno Valley. Actually, I believe that city has much bigger problems to worry over than a few warehouses and diesel trucks. But hey, I wouldn't live there if they were giving away houses with hundred dollar bills covering them.

I do live in Gavilan Hills, though, and have been here since 1989. Sure, there have been changes here, but they happen very slowly thanks to the vigilance of and activism of the residents as well as our sympathetic county supervisor, Bob Buster.

Warehouses are a fact of life and we need them. Putting them in Moreno Valley is as good a place any, and far better than having them in Gavilan Hills.

Warehousing in Lake Mathews?Reply: Hugh
No, I don't believe we'll have much in the way of warehousing in Lake Mathews. Someone having lived in the area considerably longer than another is a subjective point. We moved here in June of 1994 from a lake front home in Moreno Valley - I can't change that fact. We choose Lake Mathews for numerous reasons; country like atmosphere, no neighbors 10' away, room for horses (my wife's goal), dogs and cats. We look at this as our last home. Growth is a fact of life, always has been, always will be. Being in my 68th year I've come to accept that. The warehousing in MORENO VALLEY is their business, not mine. I have to respect that.

NO WAREHOUSINGReply: Sharon
Now whay did we move up here on the hill????? I moved here to get away for the traffic and noise and people, well the noise has picked up in the last 10 years and so has the noise and more and more people are moving up here.  NO NO to warehouseing with the triffic and trucks using the roads that were made for cars and light trucks not large trucks. We also do not need a gas station or shopping centers if we need food, clothes or gas, stop and get them before you come up the hill that is what we have done for over 25 years and if you do not like it go back to the city with a market on every corner and gas station on all cornes, noise and people all over the place. by the way we do not need lighting or more houses I like it the way it is.  Lets hear from us old timers on the hill do you want it the way that is being planed or the way it was.?????

Why We Need WarehousingPost: Hugh

Do we like to go shopping and be able to find what we want? Of course we do. It’s a fact of life and business: Companies need to warehouse their goods in order to deliver them to outlets in a timely manner and meet consumer needs – which helps the economy grow. Without warehousing, large local and specifically national companies would be out of business. The lack of warehousing facilities in this day and age would interrupt the distribution system to retail establishments, inhibit what the public has available to purchase and increase the cost of those goods – which does not help our economy grow. Pollution? The quality of air today in Southern California compared to 40 or 50 years ago is multiple times better. Low wages? A warehouse manager in Riverside, CA makes about $50-$60K, a supervisor $55-$70K, warehouse worker $29K, forklift operator $25K. The warehousing facilities built and planned in MorenoValley have a positive impact on Riverside County. They create jobs, much needed tax income and provide growth in our area.
