It appears that the forefathers and foremothers of the City of Wildomar have discovered that Martha Bridge’s latest lawsuit regarding the failure of the City of Wildomar to adopt a General Plan within 30 months from incorporation is accurate, has thrown City Hall into municipal chaos.
Apparently an update to the Riverside County General Plan of 2003, was adopted by the new City of Wildomar in 2008, without referencing an update to the General Plan, dated 2008, which was produced by citizens of Wildomar over a period of 3 1/2 years, at a cost of approximately $1 million, which was funded by Riverside County. The 2008 update has, apparently, “slipped through the cracks.”
As a result, it appears that the least expensive resolution to the newly-filed litigation, is for the City of Wildomar to agree to adopt the 2008 update to the General Plan, and to inquire if there are any additional concerns on the part of the plaintiffs.
Perhaps, a commitment on the part of the City of Wildomar to update the 2008 update within the next 24-36 months might be sufficient to satisfy the plaintiffs.
It remains to be seen if the Wildomar City Council will be able to shed their victim’s rags (and egos) in order to resolve what should amount to a little municipal housecleaning.
Unfortunately, for the Citizens of Wildomar, acknowledging the legitimacy of Martha Bridge’s lawsuit may be too great a challenge for the municipal adolescents who sit at the Wildomar City Council dais.
Perhaps they prefer spending our limited resources engaging in a fight, even if they already know that the upcoming Court ruling will probably be adverse.
