Hello Mr. Garver,
I am calling your attention to a scheme by the Detroit Shoreway CDC satellite (Stockyard Clark-Fulton Brooklyn Centre) in collusion with the "Land Bank" to transfer a commercial property at 3881 West 25th St. to the Cleveland Housing Network.
The project is summarized here:
The article inaccurately characterizes the project as favorably received by the community. This is not true. We also have no way to formally register our opposition. There is also no mention- in the article - of the large development fee, Detroit Shoreway will derive from this project.
Given scrutiny of your agency by the federal inspector general, I am informing you of this situation. The property at 3881 West 25 (Pearl) is less than a mile from an existing OHFA facility. The Cuyahoga County Land Bank also does not properly secure the property and does not provide signage indicating that the property in now in the possesion of the Cuyahoga County Land Bank.
If there was a large sign - then, the property might be of interest to actual developers willing to invest private dollars for a Metroparks and/or Metrohealth-related project that could generate tax revenue for the City of Cleveland and Cuyahoga County.
