The Problem With Mayor Villaraigosa and CM Jose Huizars’ Plans for LA Legacy (Aka: Complete Violation!)

(Pictured: Los Angeles City Councilmember Jose Huizar likes to look the other way on a lot of things.)

Mayor Sam’s blog has been covering the LA Legacy(shady non-profit) story, but since the City is so hell bent on weighing in with their opinions during everyone’s public comment at City Hall, Zuma Dogg will be making an added effort to weigh in more often on things too that I haven’t been covering yet.

A lot of emails about things like Griffith Park, Autry/Southwest Museum, LA Legacy, Huizar’s $15,000 ethics fine, Wyvenwood promises that must be kept (no matter what), VILLARAIGOSA’S “AFFORDABLE HOUSING” NOVEMBER BALLOT BAMBOOZLE, Grand Ave Project (already a botched, defeated and illegal boondoggle), Prop 1C money (“Emergency Housing and Shelter Money For Battered Women, Kids, Elderly, Veterans and Disabled” that was awarded to the Grand Avenue Project that is already highly subsidize) — and every thing else piled up in my email inbox (ZumaDogg@Mayor09.com) that I have been slacking off on.

BUT NOW A COUPLE FOLKS PISSED ME OFF (LaBong, O’Connell, Garcetti, Greuel, et al), SO THAT’S WHAT WILL BE FUELING ZD’S NEXT ROUND OF BLOG POSTS. (I bet the 15 City Council members wish the City Attorney’s office would have just STAYED ON HIS ASS, INSTEAD OF WAVING IT IN MY FACE!)

SO NOW…AN LA DAILY BLOG FIRST:

The Problem With LA Legacy
by Zuma Dogg

The problem with LA Legacy is the same problem as everything else that is going down under Mayor Antonio Doucharaigosa and Lost Angeles Shitty Council: They take a good idea, conceptually, and dirty it all up by turning it into a shady, corrupt, racket (rackerteering) and ends up running rough-shout over the community without proper vetting, input or abiding to the law.

This time, the project is LA Legacy. I guess it is some non-profit that wants to build some facilities and provide a bunch of wonderful services for kids and the community and it’s gonna save the world, let’s just say for the sake of this argument.

So again, it’s not the project, but the process.

They want to build this LA Legacy project at Hazard Park where Zuma Dogg first met Douchtonio for that phony Million Trees L.A. kick-off press conference/bullsh*t-fest. So it’s the park near USC that USC is trying to takeover themselves.

BUT KEEP IN MIND, THIS IS A PUBLIC PARK, NOT A PRIVATE PIECE OF PROPERTY IN LOS ANGELES MAYOR ANTONIO VILLARAIGOSA’S PERSONAL INVESTMENT PORTFOLIO TO DO WITH IT WHAT HE WILL.

So first of all, you cannot even legally turn public park space over to a non-profit group like this based on the desires of Mayor Villar’s and his partner in crime CM Jose Huizar’s special interests. LA LEGACY IS GETTING A “FREE” LONG TERM LEASE ON A PIECE OF PUBLIC PROPERTY!?!? (Did YOU say “yes” to this?)

Secondly, the project was all planned out with the schematics and description posted on their website, way before anyone from the public had a chance to have the opportunity to take in all the information and have the proper community meetings and public hearings it would take to put a project like this through, even if the City was doing it on a legally compliant piece of property (Aka: Not using public park space to allow ONE operator to set up shop.)

Thirdly, ONLY ONE PLAN WAS CREATED AND LOOKED AT. Usually on a project such as this, you would have multiple parties assigned with the task of coming up with the idea for the best use of this space and designing the plan and presenting it to the City.

In this case, NO DICE! Only one idea was considered: Villaraigosa and Huizar’s plan for this POLITICALLY CONNECTED NON-PROFIT PROJECT!

And speaking of “politically conncected”, Zuma Dogg hopes LA Legacy’s Founder Jenny Krusoe isn’t working in cahoots (racketeering) with the City of Los Angeles along with the Autry Family and the Southwest Museum/Griffith Park plans (against Community wishes).

It seems like you could have these two causes uniting (Krusoe and Autry) to scratch each other’s back and try to blow these two rackets past the pueblos.

SO AS LONG AS PEOPLE KEEP THEIR ASS OUT OF MY FACE, YOU MAY HEAR ME START TALKING ABOUT THE LA LEGACY PROJECT ON CITY TV 35 AND TRYING TO RAISE MORE COMMUNITY AND MEDIA AWARENESS:

Cause I’m here to tell you, this whole Autry/Griffith Park/LA Legacy stuff is the biggest bamboozle in town, and I think this LA Legacy Project will be taking the cake when it comes to corrupt rackets of bamboozlement! LA LEGACY IS ONE OF THOSE NON-PROFIT DEALS ZD IS CONCERNED ABOUT.

SEE ALSO: LA TIMES, DAILY NEWS AND OTHER MEDIA COVERAGE OF LOS ANGELES CITY COUNCILMEMBER JOSE HUIZAR’S $15,000 ETHICS VIOLATION. WHAT? AN LA CITY COUNCILMEMBER GETS AN “ETHICS VIOLATION?” I thought they were so upstanding! Oh man…there’s probably not even really an easter bunny, either. And I bet Hannah Montana is a fake blond.

  1. Zuma, I’m tired of you talking all this shit when you don’t even know. I live in Ramona Gardens and I can tell you, you don’t know your ass from a hole in the ground. Let me just get you informed about a couple things. Legacy is not getting a lease at all. Legacy is partnering with Rec and Parks. Rec and Parks will always run programs at the Armory. Why don’t you get your ignorant ass to someplanning meetings? Get all the facts and stop listening to people who have agendas. You could put your energy into doing something good instead of shit talking so much. Did you know that over 500 community surveys were collected to develop the basis of this project? Did you know an architect is beginning to work with our community in September to make our dreams come true? The community planning committee gets to approve designs at each stage. You try to destroy projects when YOU don’t take the time to learn or because YOU don’t understand how things work. Zuma Dog, you seem to have buckets of energy for running your mouth, your opinions, and your self-righteous attitude. With a little bit of knowledge, you could be helping instead of harming.

  2. Zelda,Like just about everything the city does, the concept is good (the services that will be provided by LA Legacy, the idea itself is good).The complaint some members of the community contacted me about, was that 500 community surveys may have been done, but ONE organization was selected to do THIS project in this space, rather than having several different people pitch ideas and plans. I don’t try and destroy projects. I like to make sure the community gets what is promised, and my concern is that when these non-profit projects are handed over to a pre-decided, politically connected group…things end up sideways.So I don’t want you to think I have a problem with the project, just the process.

  3. Zuma – AMEN to the previous person. I used to be fan of yours, but you are becoming just like a politician – trying to get in front of the camera and hear yourself talk – HERE IS THE TRUTH THAT YOUR IDIOT FRIENDS ARE NOT TELLING YOU:FIRST THE HAZARD PARK ADVISORY BOARD WHICH HAS BEEN RAISING ALL THIS BS, WAS GIVEN TWO F%&^%&^ SEATS ON THE BOARD, WHICH IS MORE THAN ANYONE ELSE, and they still raise issues!!- Jose Aguilar, your friend and member of the Hazard Park Advisory Board was ASKED TO BE ON THE LEGACY LA Planning committee. Many times, he told many people, that he had initial issues with Legacy, but then he was cool, then he flip flops and runs to the media like a little biatch. What a traitor, and like you HE DOESN"T LIVE IN RAMONA GARDENS OR IN THE AREA. LIKE YOU, HE SHOULD STAY THE F OUT.- SCOTT JOHNSON – Current President of the Hazard Park Armory, was also asked to be on the board. Every issue that Big Puss has raised has been answered. That big Fred Flintstone MFer idiot has still gone out and tried to get Legacy's funding cut, and has tried other shady methods to hurt legacy, thereby hurting the community. When confronted with this, he still denied he did anything, EVEN THOUGH HE WAS CAAUGHT ON AUDIOTAPE!!!Then he goes to the media and cries like a little Biatch.And then there is Hugo Pacheco, the biggest wuss of them all. Stays away and hides, then comes out of his shell.Zuma – stay behind the keyboard on this one. This is a good project, and your idiot friends are feeding you soup.

  4. Those guys have ZERO Credibility here in Ramona Gardens.ASK AGUILAR WHY HE SAID HE WAS GOOD WITH LEGACY, AND THEN NEXT THING WE SEE, HE CRIES TO THE MEDIA.ASK JOHNSON, WHY HE SAID HE WAS GOOD WITH LEGACY, AND THEN HE TRIED TO CALL FUNDERS TO GET THEM TO CUT BACK. THE FUNDERS PLAYED THE AUDIO TAPE FOR US WITH HIS VOICE!!!!!!ASK PACHECO THE PANOCHE, WHY SIERRA CLUB IS INVOLVED,WHEN THEY HAVE DONE ZERO, ZERO, ZERO FOR THE COMMUNITY.YOUR CREDIBILITY AND NEIGHBORHOOD CREDENTIALS COUNT ON THIS ZUMA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. Thanks. I’ll ask them. I want to hear. Just remember though, what I focused on in my coverage based on what I heard from the community (those are not the only three people who ZD talks to, or feels this way about LA Legacy) is — NOT THAT THIS IS A BAD PROJECT CONCEPTUALLY, but that we have another situation of cronism and the community not being able to present a host of ideas for the project.YOU CAN SAY that 500 surveys were done to see what people wanted…BUT THE SURVEY WAS DONE BY THE ONLY ORGANIZATION THAT WAS EVER GOING TO HAVE A SHOT A RUNNING WHATEVER IDEA WAS EXECUTED.But I’ll follow up and aks these guys, but you know I’ll just have to sit there for an hour and hear even more bad stuff. (Just kidding…kind of.)
