Slum Houses given to Slavic Village by HUD now for sale...and NOT renovated

Submitted by mabeldog on Fri, 07/27/2012 - 16:18.

 So I noticed that houses for sale in original slum-pipes cut out of the basement-missing windows-holes in the roof by Slavic Village Housing were generously given to them by HUD. For FREE!!! And now they are selling them 6608 Gertrude for $6000 and $3661.11 in back taxes mysteriously disappeared thanks to those of us in Cleveland who actually PAY their taxes. Or 6705 Clement also for $6,000 and the back taxes of $1784.24 ALSO were wiped clean without payment by the generousity of we the taxpayer. These "homes" are NOT repaired...they are handyman's specials. So to sum up Slavic Village gets the houses for free, does nothing with them, does not pay the back taxes and now sells them FOR PROFIT. I thought only out of state investors perpetuated this kind of scam.  And they DID cough up some cash for the properties.

Thanks for this lead--gross abuse of federal dollars and abuse of taxpayers--is anyone investigating CLE machine?? So yesterday's news...the shell game.  Crooks.  Revisit the New York Times article linked above for photos of the players...

Dimora's sentence

  I hold out hope that Dimora and his cronies--have evidence stashed that will take down the real players in this town.  The real estate schemes that continue to exploit taxpayers and to rob property from anyone who stands in the way of their sick development plans:

What I find most appalling is the PD and other media outlets revelling in his takedown without examining their own role in perpetuating and covering up the corruption in this town. 

PD Editor Elizabeth Sullivan appeared on Ideastream|NPR-controlled Feagler show and demanded a long sentence for Dimora.  At least, Channel 19 recognizes the hypocrisy of the sentencing.

Recession isn't over that's

mabeldog update on 2 of the

mabeldog

update on 2 of the free properties given to Slavic Village by HUD

 

the slum at 6608 Gertrude had no takers so it is now a vacant lot with taxes owed of $6162.88

 

the slum at 6705 Clement also had no takers so it is still owned by Slavic Village with back taxes owed if $4105

Slavic Village

Oh, that's okay Mabeldog.  I'm sure Slavic Village Development will give this property to Slavic Village Recovery.

On March 14, 2014, Marie Kirtredge, Executive Director for non-profit Slavic Village Development, signed a $1,300,000 mortgage relative to for-profit Slavic Village Recovery.

Non-Profit Slavic Village Development is working hand-in- pocket with for profit Slavic Village Recovery.

Slavic Village Recovery = Forest City Enterprises & Safeguard Properties.   This is the equivalent of buying contaminated property in bum fuck Egypt and building a juvenile justice center.

 

The $1,300,000 mortgage list this property as collateral.   This is just the 'Tip of the Iceberg in a master plan for the neighborhood":

 

3610 E 54th St

Cleveland, OH 44105

 

This once vacant house is one of the first to be rebuilt by a partnership of two major Cleveland corporations and two Cleveland Non-Profits. Located in the center of the pilot street for the project, the home will have a new furnace, new plumbing, new wiring and fixtures, and new floor treatments. The home features a beautiful staircase to the second floor that will be retained. All bathroom fixtures will be replaced. The home exterior is under renovation in the picture - with the roof already replaced and the new vinyl siding in process. This house is the tip of the ice-berg in a master plan for the neighborhood that includes street and sidewalk improvements, the demolition of vacant homes and many other neighborhood improvements. Easy access to Downtown, just 10 minutes away down Broadway Ave (forget the highway commute) -- or ride your bike on the new bike trail from Slavic Village to Downtown.

The Feds raided the Indy County Land Bank for a similar scam with a non-profit giving away taxpayer's property to a for-profit company.

It's all fun, games, and prostitutes, until you get caught!

mabeldog Ugh. Thanks for the

mabeldog

Ugh. Thanks for the follow up Gone Fishin' what a scam! No one will buy anyone of those houses which they will list at $150,000 because of the new "flooring" but the basements will fill up in the first heavy rain. They will all be rented section 8. No one who is actually willing to live in (no longer) Slavic Village can qualify for a mortgage. Like most of the rip off badly renovated slums in the Cleveland Housing Network portfolio of former HUD homes.
