HSP Resources (Steve Pezzullo/Larry Smith) want their taxes reduced on the Amedee Airfield Parcels

Steve Pezzullo submitted an application to the Lassen County Assessment Appeal Board to have his taxes reduced on the Amedee Airfield parcels he purchased under HSP Resources claiming that most of the 3576 Acres are un-usable due to contamination and now he finds out that he can't rent the Army's Amedee Airfield. The contamination of this property was included in the RFP. HSP Resources claimed they were going to bring in business with private planes landing on the Army's Airfield.

 Kan We Help told the Supervisors, at public meetings, that the Army will never allow private businesses to have access to the Army's airfield in Herlong  Something Kan We Help told "everyone" when the first of six RFP's were issued by Lassen County.

The value of the 3576 Acres had been assessed at $521,000 after the land was sold to a private party. The Assessment Appeals Board reduced the value to $393,277.

Steve Pezzullo stopped payment on the $47,996.50 Amedee Airport Land Use Plan check

He thought he could leverage Lassen County for the use of the

Army's Amedee Airfield

The Army has made it crystal clear that no private entity will use the Army airfield

 

 

 

October 14, 2016

According to the Lassen County Auditor:

HSP Resources paid Lassen County the

$47,996.50

for the Amedee Airport Land Use Fees

today...............

 

The reimbursed fee was deposited into General Fund Planning 100/0681

 

 

October 12, 2016

Hal Hays, Larry Smith and Steve Pezzullo

Stiff   Lassen County

According to the Lassen County Auditor HSP has not paid this $47,996.50 invoice that was due on September 11.

Will the County place a tax lien on the Amedee Parcels ? 

 

There were higher bids, for this contaminated property, but the Supervisors gave the 3,000 plus acres of public land to Hal Hays, Larry Smith & Steve Pezzullo (HSP Resources)  because they offered to pay for the Airport Land Use Plan. 

Now they are stiffing the taxpayers of Lassen County again

Kan We Help Submits Comments and Concerns

 to the

 Lassen  County Airport Land Use Commission

on Amedee Army Airfield

July 7, 2016: Last day for public Comments to be submitted

Public Hearing for Vote: August 11, 2016

 

 

June 30, 2016

Lassen County Airport Land Use Commission

Attempted to Meet but

Only Three Commissioners of the Seven

Showed Up for the  1:30 PM Public Meeting:

a quorum is four

THIS $50,000 PLAN IS FOR "ONE" OWNER, STEVE PEZZULLO

 

 

 

Lassen County Planning Department Staff member Gaylon Norwood called the two Lassen County Supervisors on this Commission, District 1 Supervisor Bob Pyle and District 5 Supervisor Tom Hammond. Norwood was unable to reach Supervisor Pyle. When Supervisor Hammond was reached he claimed that he had forgotten about the meeting.

The "public comment" period for the Amedee Army Airport Land Use Plan ends on July 7, 2016.

 

NORWOOD CLAIMED THAT THIS PUBLIC MEETING

WAS NOT REQUIRED AND WOULD NOT BE RESCHEDULED

 Supervisor Hammond showed up at 2:15 PM and the meeting was convened.

Kan We Help Secretary Eileen Spencer asked the Commissioners to look at Section 2.2.2  This section would allow major land uses such as residential development (2.2.2 (g)) within the 2.8 mile Area of Influence of the Commission.

Any of the actions listed in Section 2.2.2 would need to be reviewed by the ALUC, however Supervisor Hammond asked that Section 2.3 be removed in its' entirety.

 

Sierra Army Depot representatives were present and told the Commissioners that they would be open to sharing the Army's airfield.

Of course this was a total lie.

The Lassen County Supervisors attempted to include the East end of the Army's airfield in the RFP but was stopped when Kan We Help objected to this.

Lassen County was given the Army's Airfield and the surrounding land in the 2002 Agreement with Lassen County with the stipulation that the Army would have a 50 year lease with the County. If the County sold the airfield they could assign their lease to Pezzullo.   Airfield History

 

 

The two Sierra Army Depot representatives below met secretly with Steve Pezzullo and Supervisor Hammond during the "public bidding" process for the Amedee Parcels.  Steve Pezzullo included these meetings in his proposal to falsely state that he could use the Army's Airfield for any business that he would develop next to the airstrip. 

 

This Land Use Plan would also allow

daily Army aircraft landings

from 2 to 20 in Herlong

Lassen County Supervisors Amend Zoning

to

allow Steve Pezzullo to develop the land within the 2.8 mile radius around the

Amedee Army Airfield

This isn't the first time Pezzullo has bought his way and it won't be the last . 

Supervisor Hammond and Chapman are still lying about this military base being "PUBLIC" one day. The Army has a 50 year lease with an option to renew for another 50 years. IT WILL NEVER BE A PUBLIC OR PRIVATE AIRFIELD

The Supervisors attempted to give Pezzullo the East end of the Airfield but Kan We Help stopped this.

Lassen County Receives Draft

of

Amedee Airport Use Plan

and

Prepares a Zoning Ordinance

for Land Use Around the

Amedee Army Airport

 

Lassen County to bill HSP Resources for Airport Land Use Plan

 

 

The Lassen County Supervisors sold over 3,000 acres surrounding the Amedee Army Airfield to Hal Hays, Larry Smith and Steve Pezzullo (aka HSP Resources) on February 17, 2015 for $25,000.

The Sierra Army Depot transferred the 3,000 acres to Lassen County. The majority of the land was contaminated with ordinances. The contaminated land is within the Area of the Use Plan

Now that this land is in private hands, HSP Resources will be required to do the costly clean up before any development can be considered

Kan We Help stopped the Lassen County Supervisors attempt to give HSP Resources the East end of the Army's Airfield

 

The Lassen County Supervisors attempted to include the East end of the Army's Airfield by making APN 133-080-60 a wrap around parcel. 

The Supervisors hoped that no one would notice what they had done.

Kan We Help caught this and the East end airport parcel was not included in the sale to HSP Resources.

This deception was caught but it resulted in retaliation by Steve Pezzullo. False claims were filed against the Assessor and Lassen County lost the Surveyor that divided the East end airfield parcels that excluded them from the sale to HSP Resources.

 

The Lassen County Supervisors stated publicly that they would retain five parcels (APN West parcels133-070-22, 133-070-23; Center parcel 133-080-59; East Airfield parcel 133-080-60 newly divided 133-080-64, 133-120-14)which included the East End Airport parcel. But like the "One Stop" in Herlong, they secretly included it in the sale and were caught. 

 

 

Pezzullo will not get East end of the Amedee Airfield

Kan We Help objected to the Lassen County Supervisors including the Amedee Airstrip in Parcel 133-080-60, in the RFP. The Supervisors had every intention of giving Pezzullo part of the Army's airstrip
