On one hand, we never saw what was taking place yet on the other hand, it was being carried out right under our noses. We simply did not question "renovations" in-between sales. We did not question whether street widening was authorized. We did not question yards being excavated under the guise of new sprinklers. We even got so used to seeing and hearing about fires/arson that nothing appeared to be out of the ordinary.
This blog is focusing on Fresno's historic Tower District, where I have lived my entire life. The alterations took place so slowly over the years, no one ever noticed that our once-beautiful and historic Tower District is nothing but a shoddily rebuilt replication on top of a new water system.

Same thing on residential areas. Since widening of streets on all sides, the blocks end up smaller. At least 1 home is removed from both sides of every block as others are slowly shifted in a "ripple effect." To avoid complaints, occupants are "planted" as homes are sold. From burglaries, suspected homicides, unsolved murders - to street widening and major reconstruction of city and private properties, these "planted" occupants claim no knowledge.
Olive Ave. was a narrow, 2-lane street, lined with store-front properties and beautiful historic buildings. To even *think* about widening this street would have been front-page news, resulting in great protest. So it was done secretly, one block at a time. Done so slowly, no one paid attention. What about the property owners - why were there no complaints? See earlier blogs regarding real estate fraud and elimination of property owners.
With 50 yrs of preparations carried out, properties along Olive Ave. were the last to be rebuilt on top of the new water system. Done during the infrastructure upgrade when the street was torn up and all the heavy equipment remained for days. As the street was widened without notice, structures were torn apart and set back 8'.
Water meters and sewer manholes in the alley had been relocated as these structures were rebuilt on top of the secrety-replaced water system - no authorization, permits or inspections for any of it. Property lines changed. Parcel maps illegally altered in escrow; aerial views (dating back to the 80s) altered - as though nothing had been changed.
Finally, I went to City Hall and picked up a copy of the water layout. It verified everything I was being called a "liar" about. Death threats increased. I am NOT to expose this operation OR ELSE.
All property lines changed; all structures now setting on top of clamped sewer and water lines, which property owners are held liable to maintain. Keep in mind that none of this was done with permits or inspections; major code violations.
No more old, well-established lawns remain. They were excavated to access underground utilities, including gas lines also reconnected without permits or inspections - no record for any of it.
NOW THAT YOU CAN SEE HOW PROPERTIES WERE SHIFTED DOWN IN ORDER TO WIDEN OLIVE AVE., WHAT ABOUT WIDENING OF THE RESIDENTIAL STREET/S?
Same technique. What is removed from the front lawns was added to the back yards. Resulting in wider streets; narrowing of alleys.
Garages at the end of alleys are rebuilt, extended into the alley to make it appear that the alleys were always this narrow.
THE FINISHED PRODUCT
As mentioned in earlier blogs, my family and neighbors were set up for annihilation so this could take place. It was not expected I would still be alive either. In retaliation for reporting the horrors that took place, the City stooped to name calling, perjury and a Restraining Order issued against me so I was prohibited from seeking help or restitution, followed by death threats and sexual harassment.
Throughout all of this the City has turned the tables in an attempt to make ME appear the criminal and THEY are the victims. Last week, risk analyst # 3 implied that I posted a "cut-and-paste" of the sexual harassment. Wrong. I am not the person altering records or covering up the actions of the City of Fresno.
Money was being poured into repairs as quickly as the properties were being torn apart. Brand new central heat/air units; new window coverings; new roofs; painting; on and on. Due to the never-ending hell, flooding and damages, I mortgaged my home in order to save the 2 commercial properties - FOR FAMILY. Due to more fraud, we were run off and cheated out of $1 million. After the property lines were changed I was threatened with a lawsuit if I did not comply with their orders - leaving no room for a large vehicle in my own driveway behind the 2 Olive Ave. properties! My home was left a shambles, now with a mortgage on it. It was torn up to the point that I cannot rent it out (and move into the garage/apt.) Attempts to seek help appear to be sabotaged. As I have said all along, the City of Fresno's secret water diversion operation appears to be nothing less than a murder, burglary and real estate fraud operation. They do not leave witnesses behind - that way no one files complaints.
It was not expected that I would still be alive. Not only were the properties shoddily rebuilt with inferior materials, my belongings were being stolen / switched with inferior items. In an attempt to save what was left, I called a moving company - 5 huge big rig trailers were filled and put into storage. I paid thousands in hauling and storage fees. It has been implied that big rigs were used to switch the trailers in order to switch everything I owned. Rather than look, I have continued paying the LARGE monthly fee, always thinking that this nightmare would be addressed properly. It has only resulted in more hell and more death threats.
We were on our own properties when the City of Fresno and their group stepped in and wiped us out. Done while I was a care provider, my handicapped uncle's hospitalizations/death coincided with the sewage back spills which the risk analyst was lying about. I endured ongoing illness and cellulitis of both feet. My neighbor contracted hepatitis and had 1 foot amputated; he died. Other neighbor was never seen again after being lied to by the risk analyst. Neighbor across the street was murdered when this was done to his property. More.
This is how Olive Ave. was widened without any complaints. All structures rebuilt without permits or inspections.
