It may have been Chuck Booms.
Pretty sure this law was created after people complained about city workers leaving trucks running all day while the tax payer was eating the bill.
I have been preaching about the need for an Indian food restaurant in Tremont! So excited!!! No more driving to Parma when I get a craving :). The neighborhood will be perfect now.
I am SUPER excited about this! I was bummed when Dervish Grill left, but amazing Indian food kind of makes up for it!
Trade him to a Texas team...maybe they're more willing to put up with this dysfunctional frat-boy bullshit from one of their own.
He can be the toast of Austin or Houston or Dallas or...gag...College Station...when he's toasted and waving bottles around like a moronic jamoke straight out of the Animal House.
Maybe Tex-ass folks will even overlook losing, as long as he gives them a few thrills and pulls off an occasional win.
But he's already had enough second and third chances in the Sadness Factory, and the bleeding hasn't just continued, it's getting worse.
Enough. Give him his release and send him packing. Maybe Johnny Fuckup will finally grow up...somewhere else. But these types hardly ever do.

The real Cleveland was PBRs and Rolling Rocks and bottomless cups of Regular Joe, not eight-dollar craft beers and five-dollar designer coffee...and that's not what's coming. It's already here.
Thanks, hipsters. Now go outside on the patio and choke on your Nicaraugan stogies, you silly jamokes...while I laugh my ass off. Gotta get down...to...Hingetown...I can't sing that without cracking myself up.

I for one love the dirty, grimey, sparse Cleveland of just a few years ago. That was the real Cleveland, all of this manufactured hipness only benefits the developers and those businesses ballsy or lucky enough to be in on the ground floor of these "movements."
When you realize that these renaissances of blighted neighborhoods are happening across the country it feels more contrived and opportunistic, definitely not as organic or inclusive as they would like you to believe.
I think I'll leave Cleveland while the picture of the real Cleveland is still fresh in my head.
I hope the hipsters have fun drowning in debt in hingetown.
I absolutely agree with the resident who said "the proportion here is 194 units compared to 30 to 40 affordable. I'd love to see more affordable units." I am so tired of seeing signs go up for 'Luxury Townhomes!' (or worse, McMansions) when people have been pleading for affordable housing for years, if not decades.
Just before this, I saw a post from the Coffee Party on Facebook saying '$ 7.85 x 40 hrs = 314 a week x 4 = $1,256 a month' (that's before taxes, mind you). That means a minimum wage employee who manages to get 40 hours a week couldn't afford even a 500-ft studio in the Snavely development, let alone a one-bedroom. That's not affordable. Show me the developer that's putting in 200 apartments that rent for $600-$750, with 25 or 30 luxury units and I'll be a lot more interested. Then put in something like the lovely little Ohio City Diner that used to be in the Streibinger Block before gentrification; the kind of place where you can get a whole breakfast for $5, not just a specialty coffee (yes, they exist). That's the kind of urban redevelopment I want to see. Not holding my breath, however.
Nipa Hut in Parma Heights is a Filipino/Asian grocery store that offers a sit-down buffet of Filipino food on Saturdays from 11am - 3pm. 6775 W 130th St. Cleveland, OH 44130
my economics professors would say this is about supply and demand. Wal-Mart would have to pay more for a supply of higher-quality workers. This is because Wal-Mart is competing with other employers. They would probably have to pay an additional premium for higher-quality workers, because those workers would have to deal with the dregs of humanity that shop or loiter at this Wal-Mart.
So what happened with the request for a variance to the parking requirement?
John Farina it's obvious that the woman the projects that started "dropping knowledge" the instant people started arguing was a plant, liberals are so naive.
Me too. Said some rebar punctured the gas tank of his work vehicle. Jumped in front of me but the back of my car and front seat were filled to the brink with stuff. He said to just move some stuff over. Jeez. He said what's this world coming to he served in Iraq blah blah blah. He was really mad at me but I just drove away. I knew it had to be a scam. He killed his chances at any help at all when he started with all kinds of racist crap about the people who weren't helping him.
"We want to see this whole area improve. And if they're gonna do that, they've got to make money."
I love how the one moment of sanity from the some (not all) of the whiners not happy with new development, is from a woman who lives in public housing.
It is absolutely right to hold developers' feet to the fire when it comes to their plans for the neighborhood, but don't call them ugly names when they make solid, legitimate improvements to a neighborhood that was otherwise a mess for years before they got there.
to add: the only substantive objection seems to be the city-wide subsidy of any housing, no matter how expensive. the rest...people just don't seem to like change. except the Lakeside resident, from a continuously ignored community, who would benefit from neighborhood amenities going in instead of empty lots and buildings.
dunno. kinda sounds like older residents south of Detroit Ave liked having a buffer of empty lots, empty buildings, and inactive corners between them and Lakeside residents.
if only there were something easy, perhaps skin deep, that could be an easy identifier as to why.......
How about putting a community center in the area?
To Graham Veysey and Marika Shioiri-Clark, don't let others discourage you. Continue to do great work on a 'human level'. Always make a difference.
Until Jimmy Halsam makes the decision to operate every department like a professional business.....his Animal House will continue to lead the league in dysfunction, hijinks and ridiculousness.
"Piiparinen's No. 1 prescription? Affordable housing. He said that Cleveland is a long, long way off from places like Brooklyn or San Francisco, where residents get priced out of rental units. The bigger problem is that as a newer neighborhood gentrifies, it becomes exclusionary, and low- and even middle-income people don't get access to an area thick with opportunity and amenities."
Fortune Magazine has already picked Cleveland to become "the next Brooklyn"...maybe that should have been MIS-Fortune. The Brooklynization of certain parts of Cleveland has already begun, and the Near West Side has already begun easing down the road to becoming the next Lakewood.
If you're not young, white, rich, college-educated, rich, white-collar, and rich, hit the road, Jack. Oh, and did I mention rich?
Chicago-level rents for Ohio City North, and a stupid name like Hingetown? Yuppie greedhead entremanures...go home! Go remake Shaker in your own narcissistic image, power couple! Kiss my ass!
