John Frank's comments at DDA meeting 6.21.12
John Frank’s comments to DDA 21JUN2012
I’m John Frank, President, Preservation Chelsea.
It can be said that perception is reality. Your resolution of June 7 has been perceived to have imposed a higher level of financial performance than the RFP had specified. It could be perceived to have erected insurmountable barriers – show stoppers – in the path of this project.
A $3.7 million investment in Chelsea is within our grasp. Surely nobody here wants this to slip away due to misperceptions.
The Kadushin Associates team has an excellent track record of accomplishment. If Chelsea loses this, their 3.7 million dollars will wind up in another community.
Please initiate a meeting with the Kadushin/Beal principals to resolve the misunderstandings.
