Ponte Vista's T.V. Commercial

A good friend of ours called us earlier this evening to tell us she has view the Ponte Vista commercial on the Food Network channel.

I went back to the revamped Web site and also was able to see the commercial streaming on the site.

Watching Bob spend his money, knowing that any construction of anything at Ponte Vista is still a long way away, seems to be more entertaining to many of us, than just watching the commercial.

I saw it on the Dodger game also. I found it more disturbing than anything, seeing these so called community leaders selling out the town they claim to care so much about to Bisno.

Maybe these so called Community leaders feel Bisno's contributions to various San Pedro organizations/businesses outweigh the negetative traffic impacts. Or maybe just flattered Bisno sought them to serve him and his interest. Maybe they are on the payrole. Who knows. Regardless of their motives........I doubt they care about traffic impacts.

On traffic matters.. Ha...ha...ha...(had to laugh)Bisno's One million into an LA trust fund is a spit in the bucket. Guess that amount satisfies LA Planning and LADOT.

Actually, I would guess Bisno's greatest cost is not traffic mitigations but rather marketing and advertising, and significant contributions to certain private organizations whom community leaders care most about.

this project is about a lot more than just traffic. these units will become rentals. what about the pollution created by the cars that use the 5500 parking spaces. dense rental units will create anotherrun down project and ruin the whole area. what would the project be like right now if it had been built a few years ago? how many of the units would be in foreclosure right now? the density is redicilous. does anyone know how many bedrooms are proposed still? still blight up the ying-yang at the site and no privacy fencing up years later. this project sucks.
