So this report is effectively Part 2, being a continuation of Tuesday’s Report from 8/25, about Judge Cohn’s decision regarding the ballot measure language for the sale of 4.63 acres or 12% of Memorial Park, to San Antonio Regional Hospital. Please refer to the 8/25 Report if you happened to have missed it, prior to starting with Part 2. Truth be told, I wasn’t even planning on writing a follow-up report about the specially called session of the city council on 8/26, as I thought the council would just accept the Judge’s changes to their ballot measure language and there’d be very little discussion. I’ve never been so wrong, as it turned out to be in the top 5 of the best council meetings of all time. In fact, everyone who watched it live cannot stop talking about it, as it was so unexpected and absolutely shocking. Why you ask? Well we’ll give you all of those deliciously juicy details, inside this edition of The Upland Report and trust me, you don’t want to miss this!!!

Bet you didn’t know Upland lost their posterior in court again on Tuesday, August 25th, with Judge David Cohn siding with residents again by saying, “The city’s argument is misplaced,” did ya? His legal decision is below. Now the city council is holding their second specially called meeting this week on Wednesday, August 26th @ 7:30 PM, to amend their ballot initiative language known as Measure Q, for a third time. That’s because the city is now forced to put the question to the voters on the November 3rd ballot, after Judge Cohn on May 16th, 2018, refused to validate the city’s original intent of selling 12% of the Memorial Park without asking Upland residents jack swat. This now 2.5 year saga is finally going to be decided by you (the voters) on November 3rd. Come on inside this edition of the Upland Report, to learn about what this means to you and everything you need to know about Measure Q!
