Walnut Picture is Ugly

I still think that Walnut Patch picture is ugly with the horse dung, Ford work truck, the fat guys, and that junky old '65 Chevy.

Michael - It will be changed soon when I can come up for air.
Vito Spago October 28, 2013 at 01:48 PM
I do not think the existing photo is so bad. Just please, not council member photos.
Melanie C. Johnson (Editor) October 28, 2013 at 03:22 PM
It can't be faces in the photo Vito, so it won't be council members.

This picture was taken at the opening of Meadow Pass Road when the extension was dedicated a few years ago. Several old cars, including the car Michael W. refers to, were the first to drive over the new roadway.

What the reader is trying to say is, the people in the picture look like they were just visiting Walnut, because they definitely do not live here. They look like they came from pomona along with those cars and horsecrap. There! I said it for you.

The horses came from the Brookside Equestrian Center I believe, which is on Meadow Pass Road.

That Brookside Equestrian Center. Do they do anything with/for the community. They are right in the center of Walnut and cannot be missed. I drove in there once and they kicked me out. They must be big wigs because the city has not taken the property by eminent domain and put in a Ranch 99 market. They recently had it for sale at a price that no one would pay. Owners must be stupid. Asian buyers wouldn't know National Velvet from John Holmes.

I remember this event! Our son was a member of Walnut Youth council then. Very nice road opening and classic cars. The horse poop can be Photoshop removed.

Vito, Brookside Equestrian Center is a gorgeous piece of property and the owners have always been very welcoming to the community. Hikers use the property always and as long as they are respectful there is not a problem. It is a shame to see it for sale and I hope that if ever sold Council has the courage to keep developers from destroying it. The trails should be made public and the creek and stream kept in its natural state.
Vito Spago October 31, 2013 at 08:14 PM
Well I would like to see them open the place for a community event. Like I said, I drove on the property and they kicked me off Have they been welcoming to the community or just the City Council? What have they done for the community? Have they donated money earned from horse shows. Do they need a permit to hold a horse show? Can the community attend a horse show? Can the city council attend a horse show? From their web site, they seem to have many events but I have not seen them advertised.

Vito, based on your often irascible comments, you'd be kicked out of a leper colony if you walked into one. You remind me of the guy in the following joke: A guy walks into a bar and asks, "What time does happy hour begin?" The bartender responds, "As soon as you leave!" : )

Orlis. Your complimentary comment got me thinking about this Brookside Property that was recently for sale. I did some internet investigating . Seems it has sold or transferred. The Waltons sold one parcel along Lemon for $5.3M in July 22, 2013 and the main property on Meadowpass either sold or was transferred for $9M on Oct 23, 2013 to Transglobe Investment USA Corp of Industry. Jack Su, Agent. Wonder if the city council knows the future use of this property.

Do you know what it's zoned for?
Vito Spago November 20, 2013 at 05:10 AM
Sorry, no idea. I will email Nancy Tragarz
Vito Spago November 22, 2013 at 10:42 PM
Nancy Tragarz confirmed that the Brookside Stables have been sold as two properties. They are zoned single family with 28,500sq ft min lot size. This is 0.65 acre. It is fairly obvious that this patch of land will ultimately be subdivided and houses will be placed for resale. That is the only way that this property would be worth full asking price which is what was paid. Someone had to be greedy and sell out for the big bucks. May as well have been the Waltons. Greed is good. Go screw yourself, Walnut.
