Lawsuit filed against City of buffalo.

This is the latest on the hotel that I wrote. More here:

Arthur J. Giacalone, an attorney representing Nancy Pollina, Patricia Morris, who operate the Don Apparel, a vintage clothing and collectibles shop at 1119 Elmwood Avenue, Angeline Genovese and Evelyn Bencinich, owners of residences on Granger Place in Buffalo abutting the rear of the proposed hotel site, Nina Freudenheim, a resident of nearby Penhurst Park, and Sandra Girage, the owner of a two-family residence on Forest Avenue less than a hundred feet from the proposed hotel's sole entrance/exit driveway, have filed a lawsuit in New York State Supreme Court against the city of Buffalo's Common Council and Planning board, alleging that the proposed Elmwood Village hotel was approved "without giving meaningful consideration to either the impact on the adjoining residential neighborhood, or the unique character of this section of Elmwood Avenue," according to Giacalone.

Family 2

Well th ultrasound came back on my sister, and there IS something there, but they are not sure what. There are 2 possibilities: either a tumar of a sort or cysts. They are hoping they are cysts. If so they can remove them in a week. If not then they don't know. They are doing more tests and I should know more next week. This is the main reason I have not been around lately. I have a lot going on and just have a lot of thinking to do.

P.S. Why is my "red" theme green? And why does it look like pills are separating my journal enteries? Just curious.

Family

Well I was going to talk about the stupid hotel, but I just read my e-mail and the hotel is the LAST thing on my mind.

My mom e-mailed me and it was bad news. Apparently my sister, 22, has been diagnosed with cancer. I really don't want to get into it, but its pretty serious.

She had a pap smear and it came back "abnormal". Apparently there are three stages of abnormal; just abnormal, moderate and severe. It seems she is in between moderate and severe. She had an ultrasoud but we don't know the results yet. Geez....can things get any worse?

Elmwood Village Hotel approved

PROTEST THE ELMWOOD VILLAGE HOTEL AGAIN ON SATURDAY MARCH 25 AT 2:00PM ON ELMWOOD AND FOREST!!!

STOP THE ELMWOOD VILLAGE HOTEL PETITION:

The Common Council voted today and approved the plans for the Elmwood Village Hotel.

The project is a done deal. I really don't know what else to say other than, I will have to likely move and or quit my job.

Pano is going to sue and it looks like we ar going to try and start a "fundraiser" to take the case to the state supreme court. Yeah, I know. I am crazy. At this point, wishful thinking is all I/we have.

Needless to say, more turned out than I expected.

IT was a nice night last night. The one night it was perfect for a camera shot of the moon, and I don't bring my camera. Go figure. :)

I will sue you

This was spoken at the meeting at Forever Elmwood Last night(March 13, 2006 Start:6:30pm) by:
Pano Georgiadis, owner of Pano's on Elmwood speaking on the proposed Elmwood Village Hotel. This is exact:

"Now Karl (Frizlen) said, at the last meeting, that they will build this hotel right on the borderline [propertyline]. If a wall forty-five to fifty feet high goes next to this house, I could touch it with my hand. Of course its not right. You really have to go with whatever the city code says, so you have to get back as many feet as the city code says."

"If you try to get a variance to change the code, I will sue you. This is my home, number one. First of all I think we are all wasting our time here, you [Savarino], have already made up your mind, but if you go against city code, and you try to do the most rooms with a minimal amount of parking, again, I will sue you."

Any comments?

P.S. See my journal entery on Bagels :)
