Too much secrecy in favor of the developers
Just this past week I saw a major Coconut Grove developer having lunch with the City Manager. It was right out in the open, at GreenStreet, but is that still right?
People don't speak up and when they do, the politicians shut them down.
I'm having the same issue with my simple little condo board. The president thinks he is God now. He owns less a percentage than most of us in the building, yet feels he owns the place and thinks we pay him rent or something.
He told the secretary at the last meeting not to take minutes because those that were not at the meeting were out of luck! That explains why he and the others cannot produce the info I need on a recent painting job where I believe we paid double for the job. But without minutes or records, I could be 100% wrong, but how would we know now?
I like that the county stepped in to delay the Main Highway project, they like to ignore the city, which is a good thing at times. Our city is out of control. Quality of life is out the window in favor of money, money, money. I wasn't brought up like that. Maybe that's the way to be, a money monger. These people think they can take it with them.
There are so few people with a conscious these days. Is it the culture we live in? Is greed the way we should live? Look what they are doing to NYC, those pencil buildings are ruining the skyline. Here, the buildings are ruining the neighborhoods.
I often wonder how these developers mix and mingle with the public after they rape the neighborhoods. I guess they're in a class all their own, a selfish class, and they don't care about the public or what anyone else thinks. They and the politicians who encourage them are shameful.
I know I am on the right track here with my thinking on over-development, because almost daily I get emails of encouragement that tell me to keep on going. And most come from realtors!
