a forensic commercial real estate appraiser specializing in
eminent domain valuation. Nearly 30 years of expertise in
litigation support work as an expert witness has prepared her
for research into the impacts of Sustainable Development on
private property rights and individual liberty.
In 2005 she was elected
to a citizens oversight committee in Santa Rosa, northern
California, to review a proposed 1,300 acre redevelopment
project in which 10,000 people live and work. Her research into
the documents justifying the plans led her, with her partner Kay
Tokerud, to challenge the fraudulent basis for the huge project.
The City, in an attempt to remove Koire from blocking the
project, removed the neighborhood in which Koire and Tokerud's
properties were located from the redevelopment area.
Koire and Tokerud fought
on, however, not wanting to abandon the thousands of business
and property owners still in the area. They formed a business
and property owners association and a non-profit organization
and were able to raise nearly $500,000 in donations and pro bono
legal work to sue the City of Santa Rosa to stop the project.
The court case, Tokerud v. City of Santa Rosa, lost in Superior
Court but the court ruled that they could continue, and they
appealed to the San Francisco First District Court of Appeals
where they lost again in 2009. The three years of litigation
fighting eminent domain and the redevelopment project succeeded
in delaying the project while the economy collapsed--the City
has failed to implement their plans, but still has the power of
eminent domain over the 1,100 acre area until 2018.
course of the legal challenge Koire became aware of the source
of the planning revolution she had observed over more than 10
years: UN Agenda 21. Through her research she found that much of
the funding to implement local UN Agenda 21/Sustainable
Development land use programs comes through the diversion of
property taxes to redevelopment agencies. Her work in providing
information and solutions for communities fighting UN Agenda 21
has spread across the nation as more and more people become
aware of the increased restrictions on their property rights,
and the methods used to implement social engineering.
Through her website
www.DemocratsAgainstUNAgenda21.com and her grassroots tactical
organization, Santa Rosa Neighborhood Coalition, she, with other
community leaders, has enabled activists on many seemingly
unconnected issues to come together and fight the source: UN
Agenda 21/Sustainable Development.
In 2010 the non-profit
organization she and her partner founded was expanded in scope
and renamed The Post Sustainability Institute.
