Gold Base - Election Polling Place Some possible arguments against the compliance of ordinance 499 might be: Scientology compound is a polling place, therefore a publicly accessible location. Scientology compound, based on the arguments during ordinance 884, contains residents. These residents should be free to come and go, maybe go for a walk or ride a bike for some exercise should they so choose off of the adjacent public business property. The encroachment limits their ability to safely do this. Other items added in (possible) encroachment area further restrict these same residents from actually leaving the compound. This cannot possibly be in the public safety interest (the residents are also part of the public of riverside county). As a polling place, free access to the polls is required, this might involve someone parking along the road and walking to the polls. They might choose to ride their bicycle or walk or ride a unicycle or whatever else they want to do. No sidewalk or unupgraded easement area currently exists off of the road near the public entrance to this polling place, this is dangerous and not in the interest of public voter safety. As a business open to the public (again as argued by scientology itself by the accusation of blocking egress/ingress) the improvements/additions near the public business entrance to Golden Era Productions puts anyone not in a vehicle attempting to access the public business through it's entrance at risk from highway traffic due to these same improvements/additions which have been added directly up to the pavement area of the highway, leaving no room in the easement/shoulder to safely travel on foot or non-motorized vehicle. This is a public safety issue imposed on the public by the very same improvements/additions in the encroachment area.
