Plan Bay Area Grant Program For
Priority CONSERVATION Areas (PCAs) May 23, 2013
Support Rural Private Property Owners 

Dear Tina,

The hits just keep on coming from MTC-ABAG and Plan Bay Area.  Priority Conservation Areas (PCAs), a term that was not in the Plan until recently, are nothing less than an illegal land grab.  If you own private property, especially rural property, your property is threatened.  If you do not own rural property, you should stand up for your neighbors, because you could be next, thrown off your land and moved in to PDAs. These are two sides of the same coin.
We just received this email regarding the Plan Bay Area Priority Conservation Area GRANTS. Encourage your city not to take grants,  too many strings attached. 
Here is the email from ABAG:
The State Coastal Conservancy (SCC), in cooperation with Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) and Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG), is pleased to issue a call for proposals for the Priority Conservation Area Program. This pilot program focuses on the Priority Conservation Areas (PCAs) in Alameda, Contra Costa, San Francisco, San Mateo, and Santa Clara Counties. The call for proposals also available here . Letters of Interest will be due from eligible applicants July 19, 2013. MTC has made
$5 million of federal funds available which will be combined with additional funding provided by SCC.
The goal** of the PCA Program is to support Plan Bay Area by preserving and enhancing the natural, economic and social value of rural lands amidst growing population across the Bay Area, for residents and businesses. These values include globally unique ecosystems, productive agricultural lands, recreational opportunities, healthy fisheries, and climate protection (mitigation and adaptation), among others. Proposed projects should protect or enhance resource areas or habitats, provide or enhance bicycle and pedestrian access to open space/parkland resources, or support the agricultural economy of the region.
**CAPR Note:  The real goal is to allow STAKEHOLDERS  (ie  organizations like the Sierra Club
and Greenbelt Alliance who do not own the property in question but want to tell you what to do with it) to designate PRIVATE PROPERTY for "conservation".  For those who are aware of what happened in Alameda County Measure D, this would be Measure D on steroids (see the video below)
A public workshop will be held to provide prospective applicants with an overview of the Plan Bay Area PCA Grant Program and to answer questions.
This is a daytime meeting.  If you are retired or not working and can go, we would really appreciate your support.

For Liberty,
First They Came...A Cautionary Tale about the Threat to Liberty
(with apologies to the original)

First they came for the ranchland and the farmland and I did not speak out because I like open space, bike paths and hiking trails.
Then they came for the water and I did not speak out because I was not
on a lake or river.
Then they came for the airport and I did not speak out because I was not an airplane owner or a pilot.
Then they came for my house and there was no one left to speak out for me.

Time:  1:00 pm-3pm
Location: Board of Supervisors Oakland State Building

Measure D put the area north of 580 outside the Urban Growth Boundary severely restricting the use of property in that area.  The Measure was "sold " to the public as something that would save agriculture.  Unfortunately, no one read the fine print that puts so many restrictions on the property that it is difficult to make a living on it, which would force the agricultural community out, which would than leave the land unoccupied "for the public good".

The ultimate of objective of all these types of measures is the seizing of  PRIVATE PROPERTY. 

In the name of "conservation" private property rights are being destroyed around the Bay Area.  Here is the true story of what happened in Alameda County.
