Raymond Ave., the previous location of the Pasadena Recovery Center.But under current zoning codes, a residential care facility is not permitted in the zoning district, which is zoned for a multifamily residential home.The residential care facility’s use was grandfathered in and subsequent facility operated as a nonconforming use.Nonconforming uses were established before the codes and policies that are in place today were approved, and allow businesses to operate outside of current regulations, including zoning codes.The city revoked the site’s nonconforming use one year after the Pasadena Recovery Center closed in 2018 and the nonconforming use was not used for 12 months.

first_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago  Print This Post CFPB Follows Through With Proposal For TRID Updates Home / Daily Dose / CFPB Follows Through With Proposal For TRID Updates Sign up for DS News Daily July 29, 2016 1,319 Views The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago About Author: Brian Honea The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Related Articles The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) made good on the promise it made in the spring regarding a proposal to update the Know Before You Owe Mortgage Rule, a.k.a. the TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosure Rule (TRID).On Friday, the Bureau issued the long-awaited proposal to amend the controversial mortgage rule which went into effect on October 3, 2015. The goal of the proposed rule is to provide more clarity and certainty to help facilitate compliance within the mortgage industry.“Getting a mortgage is one of the most important financial choices a consumer will ever make. The Bureau’s rules are designed to make sure consumers have the information they need, in a form they can easily understand and use, before making the decision,” said CFPB Director Richard Cordray. “Our proposed updates will clarify parts of our mortgage disclosure rule to make for a smoother implementation process.”TRID created new, streamlined forms that consumers receive when applying for and closing on a mortgage. The original TRID rule established requirements as to when the consumer receives the new forms and also limits changes to the original loan estimate. The rule caused no small amount of consternation among mortgage lenders to worked feverishly to be compliant in time for the effective date.“Our proposed updates will clarify parts of our mortgage disclosure rule to make for a smoother implementation process.”Richard Cordray, CFPB DirectorIn late April, Cordray wrote a letter to financial industry trades and their members recognizing the “operational challenges” the industry is experiencing as a result of TRID implementation and said that the Bureau was considering making some “adjustments” in the regulation text to provide greater certainty and clarity.The proposed changes to TRID announced by the CFPB on Friday include:Tolerances for the total of payments—Prior to TRID, the total of payments disclosure was determined using the finance charge as part of the calculation. The total of payments calculation was changed under TRID so that it no longer used the finance charge. Under the amendment proposed Friday, tolerance provisions would be included for the total of payments that parallel existing tolerances for the finance charge and disclosures affected by the finance charge—making the treatment of the total payments disclosure consistent with what it was pre-TRID.Housing assistance lending—TRID originally included a partial exemption from disclosure requirements for housing assistance loans originated by housing finance agencies. The proposed amendment clarifies that recording fees and transfer taxes may be charged in those transactions without losing eligibility for the exemption. The CFPB’s goal is to promote housing assistance lending, since more housing assistance loans would qualify for the partial exemption—thus encouraging more lenders to partner with housing finance agencies.Cooperatives—The proposal extends TRID’s coverage to include all cooperative units, thus simplifying compliance. In a cooperative situation, the buyer becomes a shareholder in a corporation that owns the property, and the buyer is entitled to exclusive use of the housing unit within the property. TRID currently only covers transactions secured by real property; cooperatives are sometimes considered real property and sometimes considered personal property. The proposal would include all cooperatives in the rule, and not just real property.Privacy and sharing of information—Currently, TRID requires lenders to provide consumers with certain mortgage disclosures. The CPPB is proposing additional commentary to clarify how a lender may provide separate disclosure forms to the consumer and the seller.Stakeholders are encouraged to submit written comments on the proposal. Comments are due on October 18, 2016.Click here to view the full proposal from the CFPB. 2016-07-29 Kendall Baer Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Brian Honea’s writing and editing career spans nearly two decades across many forms of media.

Or does all this have to do more with the fact that the current Indian team, having had its fill of Dev, is not afraid to say so?First the seniors put in a request to the BCCI for a professional coach from overseas. Now, the birdies say, they have asked BCCI chief Jagmohan Dalmiya to diplomatically undo his appointment of Dev as the team’s fast bowling coach for the 2003 World Cup.Hell hath no fury than a superstar scorned perhaps?last_img read more

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — Scientists with the Geological Survey of Canada have confirmed that at least two earthquakes have occurred in the B.C. Peace Region since late Sunday.Earlier Monday, Moose FM received several reports of earthquakes that had been felt by area residents in the past 24 hours. The first earthquake reportedly occurred near Rose Prairie on Monday afternoon, while the second occurred near Farmington early Tuesday morning.A map of all catalogued earthquakes in Western Canada, Alaska, and the Western United States in the past 30 days. Photo by Natural Resources Canada. Seismologist Dr. Honn Kao with the Survey’s Victoria office confirmed that seismometers picked up a number of seismic events that occurred in the region in the past several days below magnitude 4. He confirmed that a M2.8 tremor occurred at 4:25 Monday afternoon just 12 kilometres north-northeast of Fort St. John at a depth of only 4.7 kilometres. Another smaller but even shallower quake occurred 25 kilometres west-northwest of Dawson Creek at 7:21 p.m. Sunday. That quake had a magnitude of only 1.9, but a depth of only 3.3 kilometres.Dr. Kao did not confirmed the other quake that reportedly occurred at around 6:45 Tuesday morning near Farmington, but that seismologists are still poring over data. He explained that earthquakes smaller than magnitude 4.0 are usually too small to be automatically pinpointed by the network seismographs in the Peace Region, meaning scientists don’t usually analyze such data immediately unless those smaller earthquakes are felt. Dr. Kao said that the shallow depth of the two confirmed quakes meant that scientists have alerted the BC Oil and Gas Commission to investigate whether there was any oil and gas industry activity occurring in the vicinity at the time of the quakes. At this point, there’s no word from the OGC about whether there was any industry activity occurring at the time.A list and map of all catalogued earthquakes that have occurred in B.C. and Alberta in the past 30 days can be found here: read more

first_imgNew Delhi: Continuing crackdown on terror financers, security agencies have identified 13 people, including Hizbul Mujahideen founder Syed Salahuddin, Hurriyat leaders and businessmen, who are allegedly providing funds to terrorists and stone pelters at the behest of Pakistan spy agency ISI, officials said Sunday. The Centre has started seizing properties belonging to terror financiers in a big way. Thirteen individuals and their properties have been identified by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) and action has been initiated, they said. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c details “Individuals identified during these investigations have been found providing money to all major terrorist groups like LeT and Hizbul Mujahideen as also Hurriyat leaders, separatists and stone-pelters in Jammu and Kashmir,” a senior government official said. Funds were provided to the leadership of Kashmir-based terrorist groups for misguiding, motivating and recruiting local youths to militant ranks. Operational activities of terror groups, including attacks on security forces, camps and convoys, are also being financed, the official said, adding money obtained through these channels are being used by major secessionist formations, especially the Hurriyat Conference. Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from Thursday These funds are used for maintaining Hurriyat’s top leadership and a massive propaganda machinery to arouse disaffection among the people of Jammu and Kashmir against the Centre. It is also being utilised to spread false information through media contacts, newspapers and social media, the official claimed. The official said these are in turn used to instigate and lure misguided youths to resort to anti-India activities, violent street protests and stone pelting on security forces at encounter sites. Extensive use of such funds is being made to finance institutions such as select mosques, madrasas and organisations like recently banned Jamat-e-Islami(JeI)(J-K), for focusing on subverting locals, another official said. In the first strike, action was initiated to attach a plush bungalow of Zahoor Ahmad Shah Watali in Gurgaon, the official said. He is, at present, lodged in Delhi’s Tihar jail. Watali is allegedly a major conduit for funnelling terror finances into India, the official said. Documents seized by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) indicate that he was receiving money from Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) founder Hafiz Saeed, Salahuddin, the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and the Pakistan High Commission here, the official claimed. Watali is known to have important sources of Hawala financing operating out of Dubai. Besides him, another 10 leaders were brought into the multi-agency action on terror funding. The ED has zeroed in on proceeds of such crime and begun action to freeze and seize such assets. The ongoing investigation in the first phase has determined and quantified assets valued at over Rs7 crore as proceeds of terror funding crimes, the official said. The 13 identified individuals include Mohd Yusuf Shah alias Syed Salahuddin, who through Hizbul, has been actively involved in creating unrest in Kashmir and other parts of India, according to a document prepared by security agencies. Being a resident of Jammu and Kashmir, Salahuddin has a wide network of local sympathisers, who act on his instructions and collect funds sent by him to fuel secessionist activities, it said. Hafiz Saeed, self-styled chief of Pakistan-based Jamaat-ul- Dawaa, and other separatist leaders of the state, including members and Hurriyat cadre, have been raising, receiving and collecting funds domestically and from abroad through various illegal channels like Hawala, for funding separatist and terrorist activities in J-K. The document said Aftab Ahmad Shah alias Fantoosh, a Tehreek-e-Hurriyat (TeH) founder member, was spokesperson and legal advisor to the Hurriyat (Mirwaiz faction). During a search at his residence in Srinagar, NIA seized various incriminating documents and during interrogation, Shah confessed that his charter of duties included monitoring incidents, issuing statements, arranging meetings and conferences. Shah, son-in-law of TeH separatist leader Syed Geelani, was closely associated with JeI (J-K). The 13 individuals also include Mohammed Nayeem Khan, Farooq Ahmad Dar, Akbar Khanday, Mehrajuddin Kalwal, Bashir Ahmad Bhat, Saifullah and Nawal Kishore Kapoor Khan, self-styled chairman of National Front, an organisation affiliated to Hurriyat, was part of the Muslim Jaanbaaz Force and earlier involved in various militant activities, the document said. Dar was JKLF-R chairman and is a terrorist involved in criminal and anti-national activities since 1990. He received arms training in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) in 1989-90.Khanday is a JeI(J-K) member and trusted lieutenant of Geelani. He knew of anti-India protests in the Valley. Kalwal, a former militant trained in PoK, is a key fund raiser for stone pelters.He collects funds on behalf of Hurriyat and spearheads protests, the document said. Bhat, a former Hizbul militant, went to PoK for arms training and was involved militancy cases.He is a trusted aide of Geelani and was aware of systems of fund collection and distribution by the Hurriyat leader to operatives, who indulged in anti-India activities. He has visited the Pakistan High Commission here with Geelani several times, it said. Kapoor, Watali’s close associate, remitted Rs 5.6 crore to Watali for which he has not been able to produce any document.last_img read more
