SEE SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT STOP ADELANTO PARCEL TAX Sunday Shoots back; Restrictions Ap
Here is the language...
"Shall the City of Adelanto's measure, to fund parks/recreation programs, capital improvements/other infrastructure projects, public safety, and to fight illegal dumping and blight, enacting a vacant property tax on parcels used less than 50 days per year, at rates ranging from $50.00/per acre to $600.00/acre annually, for 20 years, based on zoning, raising about $6,200,000/year, with citizen oversight and hardship exemptions for seniors and low income individuals, be adopted?"
This additional tax on the vacant land surrounding the range, owned by Desert Range Properties and rented to the range, would be added to the current rent for the range. Essentially, this would price the range out of existence. It would force the range to close and the land to be sold. We must do everything in our power to defeat this proposed tax.
There is a PAC that is fighting this parcel tax. They have contacted Desert Range Properties, who in turn have given notice to the club about this tax. The PAC is the Building Industry Association of Southern California. The PAC's taxpayer ID number is 95-3920835 and the FPPC committee ID number is 741733. We need to support this groups efforts to defeat this measure. Every dollar will help, no matter how much your donation is, it will help.
Legally, we cannot earmark donations for just this cause, but we have been assured that it is at the top of the list for issues to be defeated and they are gearing up now.
Please donate what you can. Send your donations to BIASC PAC C/O Reed&Davison, 515 South Figueroa St., Ste 1110, Los Angeles, CA 90071, or BIASC PAC, C/O Steve LaMotte, 24 Executive Park, Suite 100, Irvine, CA 92614.
LET'S GET THE WORD OUT THAT THIS COULD BE THE END OF THE CLUB IF IT IS NOT STOPPED NOW.
