[columbia_heights] Re: Jim Graham's message to the list
- I for one would prefer a heads up that you would be meeting with a group
concerning an issue. So that when you make a blanket statement of
representing our views you would have the latest feelings from those in the
community. In the past few weeks I have been educated further on the needs
and wants of our neighbors. It is much more than preserving a theater. It
is more about meeting the needs of a diverse community. In order to best
determine those needs we need an open forum (with more than a weeks notice)
to spread the word and voice our views. Anyone have any suggestions? I am
sorry I havent been able to attend previous meetings but have been traveling
and balancing a hectic schedule. With more than a one week lead time I
could be at a public meeting. In addition many people have voiced, and
rightfully so, the need to spread the word to our neighbors (some who speak
different languages). I imagine this would also take more than a few days.

Subject: [columbia_heights] Jim Graham's message to the list
I second Eric Heard's questions. Exactly what is the Mayor trying to reach
decision on? Is he considering rejecting the RLA's decision?? Jim, do you
informing this group of what is going on? Your notes aren't really
with the level or sentiment of the discussion, at least on this list, and I
wonder what is the point of giving these little information teasers. Why
people be surprised that your attempts to forge a consensus aren't working?
More importantly, I want to know what you mean by it all being "over
Jim Graham's message:
We had our meeting today (Wednesday, Sept 29) with the
principals, including Giant, GRID and
Horning. I'm not very encouraged. Giant was 100% obstinate on
the issue of
performance space of any kind in the Tivoli. I insisted upon
such space as a
fundamental concession before we could reach any other issue.
continued, even when I described in very graphic terms, what lay
terms of delay, controversy and litigation. Why, I wonder, would
such a future?
I have agreed to attend several meetings the Mayor wants to hold
reaching a decision. That should all be over shortly. Please
stay in touch.

- Connie: First, this was a private message that I had sent to a constituent.
I was asked if it could be circulated, and I agreed to do so. Second, you
are right: I want to provide a more detailed comment and I will draff it
directly. Finally, being "over" shortly, means this stage of discussion.
You're right, there will probably be no quick fix here. Please stay in
touch. Bests Jim
