St. Paul plans are on track for Promise Neighborhood


Anonymous Anonymous said...

I wonder if affordable housing is going to be part of the mix so people can "flourish from birth?" After all without a roof over your head you will not get very far. So what is it Chuck.....affordable with a few minor violations like everyone has or cherried to the max for max rents?

Affordable is going to have to be a part of the mix of any City project. And, in a project paid for with Federal stimulus dollars you are going to see total rehabs on the houses. So, no violations.

Sounds real affordable to me. First it was code to the max and now that a lot of the affordable stuff is gone (tore down by DFL bulldozers) the name of the game is rehab to the max. Sounds to me like non profits and unions are gonna rake in the cash while the taxpayer gets left holding the bag. Low income will be livingt in boxes in Como Park while the connected ones will be living high on the hog.

No, what it is, is that the City has been picking up the pieces from all of the land speculators who stopped paying their mortgages on their rental properties when the prices crashed.

The Feds created have created a fund where cities can buy from the banks properties at 1% less than the appraised value. So, they are buying a lot of $20, 30, 40K houses that they will rehab and either sell as affordable home ownership or have larger non-profit housing assistance programs rent to the poor.

I know you guys think that the best way to have affordable housing is to have no running water and no heat and you get the section 8 check, but, the City thinks that the poor deserve better than that.

Hey Chuck money is flying around like paper in the wind.
TAX DOLLARS $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

My home was messed up by the government money that was flying though Ramsey Action Program in 1995 and my home caused 'MORE" trouble then any home ever in Minnesota, by the way people the Democrats like Norm Coleman, Dave Thune , Chuck Repke, Sandy Pappas, Carlos Mariani and others on the Democratic Party thought if they didn't help me that I would just Shut Up and Go Away.
We found out that Bill Dahn is not a guy to fuck over and threaten me with kicking in my door and putting and gun to my head would scare me to shut up.
That didn't work and in 1998 ... July 14, 1998 when I received a call from " Eric E. Ayen a case manager for Ramsey County Mental Health Service saying if I didn't shut up about the insulation in my home that I would be put in Anoka Hospital.
The rest is history, I went down and filed for MN. Governor on the Reform Party and days later I got a call from Jesse Ventura's people saying that Jesse and Dean Barkley wants to stop over Sunday July-19-1998 to talk to me.
Go to YOUTUBE and watch the 2 minute video taken by Barkley ...

This again shows that the TWO FACE Democrats need votes for the up coming city council and mayors races.

They Do Not Care for the people, they care about controlling the people!
Right Boys.

Officials with the $750,000 Promise Neighborhood planning effort say things are on track to produce a draft plan by summer and a final version by fall. They say they want to put a plan into practice next year, but it remains unclear how it will be financed.

Mayor Coleman will get people from Dorothy Day to work on these peoples homes and bring them up to code.

Children Family Learning Program's Money will be used and then watch the money.

I wonder if the city will have 16 year old kids working tearing out the abestos, etc like what happened down on Payne Ave? You non profits skim off a high wage for yourselves and make it up with cheap labor.

Using Chucks analogy of, it cost the city over $450 an hour to do business I don't see how this chump change will help 650 families.

It doesn't help the families. The government uses the money to hand out to their buddies who have some bullshit program going on. They collect a big paycheck and give the scraps and throw aways to the people that it was supposed to help.
