Elmwood Village Hotel approved



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.

Watch Channel 4 news (on Chan 9 adelphia cable) at 6pm and channel 2 news at 6pm and WB 49 at 10pm to see how our protest on the hotel went :) And maybe after that you might consider signing the petition to stop it here;

Needless to say, more turned out than I expected.
P.S. Happy Birthday Matthew :) !!!!!

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 :)

So...I aquired about oh...lets see..maybe about 100 day old bagels. Some plain, some onion (i think, because i can smell them) and some sesame and some cinnamon and raisen. I had only one so far, the cinnamon and raisen. MMMM...
So does anyone want any bagels? Thet were baked last night and came from a place where the owners/bakers follow strict Orthodox rules and there is something about they cannot make bread or something after sunset, and so they bake brand new ones in the mnorning.

A load of crap

Have you ever seen a load of crap? Sure you have, and it wasn't brown or on the grass. Its called Forever Elmwood. Yup...they are a load of crap.

The meeting tonight was just as I suspected and what Pano suspected, one big pile of $hit. It was not a "community meeting." I recall the last big meeting Savarino had was at Buffalo State College, where the general community got stuff in their mailboxes about the meeting. Funny thing is, I learned about tonights meeting through the media. WB 49 to be exact. Kris O'Donnell told me. If it were not for her, I probably would not have gone. This was not a public meeting as there were only about 15 people there? And seemed like there was only one there that was for the hotel, that was NOT affiliated with any Elmwood group or development. Even that number is pushing it. In fact, all they are trying to do is force this down my throat and everyone elses and trying to get us to "comply" with the hotel. They didn't answer questions, they just gave reasons, that we already heard, to why we need this. They showed us the same pctures the saem layouts the same everything. I have the whole thging on tape. And I can say, that if the hotel goes through, and the developers take the house I am in, by getting a variance, which they ARE doing, then Pano will sue them. Said it out loud to everyone, and I have it on tape. As far as I am concerned, they made no effort whatsoever to inform the public of this meeting and they could care less what anyone opposed thinks.

So if the city approves it, then lawsuits will hold it up for a few years. Looks like its the "no tell hotel" now.
