MV warehouses replyReply: Roy
Granted warehouses generate a few jobs and some income for the tax base.  But those positives are proven to not rise to the level that the developers and city official often quote.  Simply put; they are not in the public's best interest, the negatives far outweigh the positives.  If one concedes that developement is where MV and Perris valley should be heading, it is my opinion that a balanced mix of industrial, retail, housing, recreation, open space, etc. leads to a community where people can lead happy lives.  A mono industry of warehousing leads to a place where people ONLY want to go to work.  There is no other appeal, only the drab concrete tiltup buildings and the dusty smoggy congestion of trucks.  And that is a future we would be wise to avoid, if we can.  As the County widens Cajalco, what impact on our property values and lifestyle would the extra trucking have?  For each of us and our children, is forklift operator the only job choice in our future?  I say we can do better!

Benefits or Causes? Expanding Cajalco Is From This As WellReply: Cindy Ferry
Ask the county the major reason they have to expand Cajalco Rd! Moreno Valley traffic crossing through here to get to and from.  I listen to Moreno Valley and I see what they are doing.  They are working VERY HARD to address their issues.  I just also see a LOT of lies being told the people that have to live with what comes from all this ... like all those residents who's homes just got annexed into a commercial zone, wanting to be or not.  I can see why the city did it, but I still think it should have been up to each property owner.  It was done to ease the city and counties job in planning and to make it easier for the developer to push them out and build on their lots.  That I just could never agree is the right thing to do.  There is NOTHING ensuring jobs for those that live here.  It would be nice and I'm sure some will get those few jobs, but also, many from outside Riverside will be coming here for those jobs and turning this into another L.A.  That I do not want to see.

Moreno Valley--The destinationReply: Michael D
Moreno Valley exists the City of Riverside would not allow the type of developement that MV allows. Where would you rather visit, or live?  Warehouse cities are quite bleak and crime-ridden, you really want that?

Benefits of MV WarehousingPost: Hugh

City/County income boost from tax revenue; increase in business development; timely distribution of goods to area retailers; reduced pollution (honestly); new job growth; better than average pay for warehouse personnel; increased income for local businesses; a city taking action to survive and support its residents. The list goes on and on. Moreno Valley is moving in the right direction. The warehousing in Moreno Valley and the decision made by the city leaders is having a positive effect on our entire area and will continue to do so for many years.
