Petition to Waukee Mayor and City Council Members
Help support clean water and environmental compliance in West Des Moines and Waukee.
1. We are asking the City of Waukee to contact the following developers and ask them to voluntarily remove the developers' silt, soil, and trash from the ponds of and around Southfork: Hubbell Realty Signature Commercial Real Estate Caliber Iowa Brick Towne (Dickson Jensen) The City Inspections of both West Des Moines and Waukee sites show repeated violations of the Clean Water Act, the City's own ordinances, and best management practices as outlined by the Iowa SUDAS (Statewide Urban Designs and Specifications). Repeated written complaints to the cities, the Iowa DNR, and the EPA have resulted in virtually no action or improvement. 2. We are asking the Cities of West Des Moines and Waukee to require retention and detention on the recent developments to decrease the velocity of water that is damaging the property in Southfork, Brentwood, and Country Club. 3. We request enforcement of the City of Waukee ordinances and General Permit #2 of the Iowa DNR. Violations should be enforced and developers shut down for repeated violations per the Iowa DNR.
Petition to Residents of Washington Township, Mark Hackle, Karen Spranger, Candice Miller, Kathy Bosheers, Lawrence Rocca, Peter Lucido, Dan O'Leary
Remove Dan O'Leary from Washington Township Office
Supervisor Dan O'Leary is not respecting the will of the people. Not only is he using his position to act as a real estate mogul rather than an elected official, but the community is outraged with his environmental violation of wetlands that he failed to disclose to residents for over one year, his continued involvement with Giffles Engineering despite multiple employees being charged with corruption, his obscene amount of legal bills that he has put on the taxpayers' which is now reaching upwards of $35,000 (stemming from when he allegedly sexually harassed a township employee), his multiple failed attempts at suing the Romeo library (losing twice) and racking up over $40,000 in legal fees, his development of the community in a way that is not sustainable, drying out residents' wells without their knowledge, his lack of traffic studies, poor treatment of citizens who attend meetings, and his self-proclaimed "asshole" persona and lack of professionalism. Let's send a message to our local Supervisor that he should step down from his position or be recalled. It is not appropriate for elected officials to act in such a matter that is fiscally and ethically burdensome to the community. We are asking Mr. O'Leary to step down from the Supervisor position. If he does not step down we will seek a recall once he has hit the one year mark of his term. We will need physical signatures from the community.

Protect the Rights of Irvine Residents; Demand the City put its People *BEFORE* Developers
------------------------------------------------------------------------------ UPDATE 6/13/17: Thanks to our supporters, significant progress has been made! The Irvine Company has proposed to move the Safari Substation to an alternative site that is acceptable to both the City of Irvine and the Spectrum 5 community (NoSubstation.com). We are now asking Southern California Edison to agree with the proposal. Please SIGN OUR PETITION and come to the Safari Substation Public Discussion on Tuesday, 6/27/17 @ 4:00PM to show your support. For more information, please read the Petition Updates posted below. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Call on the Irvine City Council to continue taking decisive action on behalf of the people of Irvine! The Spectrum 5 community originally came together to stop Southern California Edison (SCE) and The Irvine Company from dropping a high-voltage electrical substation in the middle of our fully built-out community. After nearly 1-1/2 years of petitioning the Irvine City Council and Planning Commission, we have obtained the support of the City Council. Now both The Irvine Company and SCE are speaking to us about alternatives for the Safari Substation. This is the kind of resident-city-utility-developer dialogue we have been asking for since the beginning. Please sign our petition to let the City Council and City staff know that we appreciate and support their initiative in getting the Safari Substation moved to a safe and compatible location.

Petition to Meijer , Washington Twp. Board of Trustees, Washington Twp. Planning Board, Washington Twp. Zoning Board, Dan O'Leary, Rick Keyes, Frank Guglielmi, Mike Nicely, Peter Thomas, Paul Modi
Stop the 2nd Meijer from coming to Washington Twp.
As we all know, there is already a Meijer in Washington Township at 26 Mile Road and Van Dyke Avenue. Meijer is looking to build a second location on the North end of Washington Township at 32 Mile Road and the M-53 Van Dyke Expressway. In addition to this second Meijer store location, they want to put in a gas station along with a Planned Unit Development (PUD housing). The taxpayers would save approximately 10 million dollars without a second Meijer in Washington Township because we would have no reason to build their sewer treatment plant. Without a sewer plant we can slow down growth and avoid the 800 unit housing development. Plus, who really wants to live next to a smelly sewer plant? Many of us who reside in this community have done so because we deeply appreciate the rural, tranquil, setting as well as the low crimes rates and minimal traffic compared to areas like Hall Rd or Chesterfield that are overdeveloped. The goal of this petition is to preserve the qualities that make our area great, as well as keep the value in our homes. Say no to Supervisor Dan O'Leary, the planning & zoning board, the board of trustees, and Meijer's plan to destroy our precious area with something no one in this community wants. Please sign this petition if you agree that we do not want a second Meijer in Washington Twp!
