Citizens--have you noticed high density rentals popping up around your house, with little public input? Check out this organization that is taking cities by surprise...see if your community is affected by what is going on.
Get involved...speak up and keep us posted.
(I checked and one of our two major Cities in Central FL is a member of ECLEI)...a sort of Al-Gore-save-the-earth-from-global-warming-and fill-in-low-income-housing-stimulus-warning)
CLEI methods include infiltrating local government. Organization representatives seek to be hired into local planning departments or they provide “toolkits” to staff. Too many elected officials such as Cool Mayors allow ICLEI to influence policy changes through the use of funding incentives and rewards. While some of these policies sound good on the surface, they result in consequences such as:
High-density housing scams
Open space where access is not allowed
Government “partnering” with favored private businesses and non-profit agencies, using your tax money
Undermining Constitutional administration of government
Managed control over your life
Mismanagement of public utilities
Prohibitions on natural resource management leading to increased fire hazards, lack of water, and private property restrictions,
Increased taxes, fees, regulations and restrictions
Is ICLEI running your town or coming to a town near you?
Are your elected officials being lured into enacting ridiculous rules and regulations in exchange for funding? Do your elected officials know that there are long term consequences to their irresponsible actions?
Currently there are more than 550 communities in North America paying membership dues to ICLEI. Upon becoming a member of ICLEI, members become governed by ICLEI Charter. If your community is one of these, you are paying for the loss of your unalienable rights.
Has your town, city or county signed on with ICLEI? Find out here:
