The Oroville City Council Meeting last nite was well attended by concerned citizens and business people. All of which seemed in Favor of this, since none spoke against it except for 1 council member who rendered a no vote even tho he said he was in favor of the proposal. A Majority of the Council Members approved the 3 resolutions which will lead to a sewer extention across the Thermalito Power Canal at the North end of Table Mountain Blvd.— During the discussions Weldon C. Larson, Senior Partner/Principal at Hignell Development Group, Inc. said his company had already spent $300,000 so far, not including the price of the land they bought, to get this far with the permit process, that has taken years, just to get this far.— With the permit facing expiration in early September unless the groundbreaking actually commenced— It was an important decision that the council members faced.– Looking at Long Term Vision to Promote Growth and Potential for Local Jobs (Probably Clean Green) —Either take a chance and help provide the sewer extension, priming that area for development.— One thing is for sure—If you do not lay the ground work they will not come.— So A Majority of the Council Members Voted in Favor of those Resolutions. —Now the 237 lot subdivision map should get approval.— It is an important decision for our community that our city council is opening the door to promote growth here in Oroville.— Supervisor Bill Connelly, Gary Ott and a Reverend (sorry don’t know his name) spoke in favor of this groundbreaking decision.— Thanx to the Realtors who supported this and attended the meeting. — Promote Growth and Jobs for Oroville.—I think the City Council made the right decision for us all.—
A property owner–Hignell Development Company owns 70.8 acres of undeveloped land north of the table mountain blvd thermalito power canal bridge. In August 2005 they obtained a tentative subdivision map approval for a 237 lot subdivision. Tonite the city council will consider: (1) an encrochment permit with the deptartment of water resources for construction of a sewer force main across the thermalito power canal bridge. (2) a loan from the sewer fund to the general fund to pay for construction of the sewer force main, and (3) a reimbursement agreement to Hignell Development Company for the oversizing costs of the sewer force main across the thermalito power canal bridge.———-This is an important vote that I think should pass. It will allow the land to be built on once the market makes it favorable to build new homes there. It is planned development and would bring construction jobs to our area and increased tax revenue. More jobs for our fire department and police——-Help Protect Property Owners Rights—-I know it takes away from family time and is not real convenient to be there, but please—Go to to the meeting and Support these resolutions so they pass—-
There are so many benefits of being a Realtor including the help All the California Home Owners get thru the California Association of Realtors legal department. It is unfortunate that Most homeowners have no clue what the CAR legal team does to Help Protect Their Property Owner Rights. That’s why I pay the additional $197 (true cost of doing business) for the Realtor Action Fund. There is No other organization that I know of that goes to bat for the California Homeowner to protect their rights with lobbyists. God Bless Em. That’s what we are there for—to Protect our Clients.
