Lancaster Mayor Wants To Broadcast Bird Songs


losangeles.cbslocal.com

R. Rex Parris proposed the idea during his State of the City talk on Monday
The Antelope Valley Press says Parris wants to play the bird chatter from loudspeakers on Lancaster Boulevard. The mayor says there’s science to show that listening to birdsong makes people happier.
Parris is known for his flamboyant ideas. He got a law passed giving the city the right to castrate pit bulls, ordered city officials to learn Mandarin in a bid to woo Chinese business, and riled some people by saying he was growing Lancaster into a Christian community.

LOL You got to be freaking kidding me! Too much.

Here is a hint and/or helpful idea for the gov't out there-or anywhere for that matter.

Get the hell out of our lives and stop worring about what the hell will make me/us happy.

That would make me/us happy!

Can someone please remove that blunt from the gentleman's hand who has proposed this idea and kindly passed it down the line.

Back to topic, this is so incredibly out there, i mean way out there, were talking about entering a black hole and finding our alternative universe and all this without a space suit.

Although I am moving this weekend, I have lived in Lancaster for 20 years. Our current mayor is a jerk and most of us know it. The area he wants to put the bird sounds in is our old main street called "Lancaster Boulevard" and is about a half mile long. Over the past two years they have spent millions changing this part of the city. Even though we have a very high foreclosure rate and vacancy rate, the city has renovated the downtown and built a large number of apartment buildings. The published plan calls for putting a wall around the area.

Lancaster has historically been a farming community. In addition, it is near Edwards Air Force base and home to a lot of secret aerospace development. Currently, it is being developed for a wind farm and a solar farm. Beyond that, a Chinese car manufacturer is coming. This sleepy little town is about to get very busy. The most top secret technologies are built and developed here, having a large of Chinese engineers in the same place will be very dangerous and is a great way to steal our technology.

I have been tracking the changes downtown and don't like what I see. I have discussed it with people whose families have lived here for 100 years and they don't like it either. The downtown is not being developed for the people that live here. One of the projects in the area where the birds will sing is an artist loft. The building's lofts have four bedrooms and a glass shower that allows everyone in your apartment to see you shower. This is very odd for a "Christian community" and it was paid for with redevelopment money. Most of the people living here don't even know what these lofts are designed like.

The funny thing about the bird noises is that we have birds, why make fake sounds and why now? The downtown area is being developed for young urban professionals who are single. We have never attracted that type, it is not an urban setting. Isn't it interesting that we having mass bird deaths at the same time that the mayor wants to put in fake bird noises? As for hearing the fake bird noises, the main street has been changed and is not friendly to cars anymore, the plans can be found on the cities website if you care to see what has been done. They mayor also plans on having constant police foot patrols on the street in question, probably to make the Chinese feel safe from us hicks.

There is something rotten in the town of Lancaster. I have been told by someone whose family has lived over a 100 years that the Redevelopment agency has been buying abandoned houses, fixing them up and selling them to local churches for $1. While it may not be criminal it certainly smells wrong. The mayor's pandering to the local christian community is how he gets political support. Oh, I am a Christian and would be livid if my church participated in such things.

This mayor also wanted to buy a plane for the police to circle the city 24 hours a day to watch crime. It is a very small city, about 150,000 people with a low crime rate. Let me give you a possible situation that is very disturbing. Lancaster/Palmdale (Palmdale is an adjacent city) is home to the development of stealth technology, rocket technology, high altitude observation technology, drone technology and all kinds of spooky stuff. If you were an engineer working on this stuff and got laid off, you could drive one mile and get a job working for the Chinese car manufacturer, pretty convenient way to lose our advantage in technology to the Chinese.

I lived in Lancaster in 1960 for about 15 months, I remember the Lancaster Blvd, it had one light and R/R tracks and a Macy's and Five and Dime store. I believe it was J and 14th street I lived on, have to blew out the old cob-webs,,,,,, We use to go to Roseman or was it Palmdale to watch the Hell Angels ride and work on their bikes.

Good times, No Damn Fake Bird Songs, just Heat and Beer and More Heat, Lots of white sand.

Sounds like the time are sure changing there. Funny how that is. Wonder what another 50 years will do for it & other places.

I have to say, as of now & in hind-sight. I think I lived life when it was best---the late 70's/Early 80's.

About 1988/89 the whole P.C thing started and nothing has been right since-IMO.

Go ahead. Spend the tax payers hard earned money on something that will make YOU feel good (Mayor)
