What kind of neighbor is World Oil Corp.? Well since I live very close to what I’m going to refer to as “ground zero” I feel very qualified to say that they are a pretty shitty one!
They don’t give a rat’s ass about our community or they would have simply left the recycling center that used to be on the corner of Sunset Cliffs & Voltaire (with all of its beautiful and lush greenery) stand and that would have been the end of it.
Instead they tried shoving a gas station down our throats, and when the good people of O.B. rose up against that they left the corner in utter disrepair and abandonment for over 3 years now. When some good people tried to beautify it by putting plants on the property WOC quickly tore all that out and gave us a dilapidated chain link fence instead…lovely!
Who on our planning board approved this and more importantly are they getting some kind of kick backs? Hey, I’m all for free trade but where’s their community consciousness? These heartless shills need to be run out of O.B. on a rail!
There is already no place to park on the 4800 block of Voltaire and there is absolutely no use for some new high-rise medical center or a Deli (or whatever they want to cram down our throats this week) when there are plenty of empty business buildings here just waiting for someone to bring them back to life. Look at the Rock, Paper, Scissors building. Fill that before you start to build more for crying out loud!
This is an Oil corporation that is living in the past and clinging on to antiquated ideas when it comes to not only energy, but also co-existing in a community of progressive thinkers.
Make sure the O.B. planning board knows your feelings on this matter by attending the meeting this Wednesday evening at 6 p.m. at the Ocean Beach Recreation Center at 4726 Santa Monica Ave. Let’s get World Oil Corp. out of O.B. once and for all!!!
