Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

Johnson Street RFP Developer Interviews at Hollywood City Hall

Meanwhile in Hollywood...
Wednesday morning at 9 a.m.,
I'll be at Hollywood City Hall,
Room 219, for the public
evaluation and presentation
of the four submitted proposals
for the Johnson Street
redevelopment project.

Though it's open to the public,
this meeting won't have a public
Q&A component.

As it was explained to me recently,
each team will have 40 minutes to
make their presentation, 15 minutes
for Q&A from the Hollywood
Evaluation Committee, who were
all 'coned,' and with 5 minutes for
breaks/other, so that the morning
can pass in an organized fashion
that's fair for all involved and
understood by everyone in advance.
The deliberations will begin at 1:00 p.m.

(Were that we had some of this sort of
fair and common sense logic in the
Duchy of Hallandale Beach!)

The proceedings will be taped for later
broadcast on Channel 78 to ensure
maximum awareness of the various proposals.
on Thursday, October 15 at 6:00 p.m.
and Monday, October 19 at 9:00 a.m.

You will also be able to view the meeting
beginning on Thursday, October 15 on
the City of Hollywood website
www.hollywoodfl.org on the Johnson
Street RFP webpage.

The proposals will be judged on a
pass/fail basis, and all four could pass
or none of them or some number under
The more the merrier.

Like your sense of anticipation of
a really successful first date at a nice
upscale restaurant you enjoy being at
but don't go to very often, I hope
to be pleasantly surprised and maybe,
dare I say it, even "Wowed."

But I'm also prepared to have to later
chalk it all up as just a valuable
"learning experience' if not so great,
and start all over again.

The competitors that pass tomorrow
will then move on to the meeting with
the Hollywood City Commission on
Wednesday October 21st to confirm
their status. since in the end, it's the
Commission's decision.

A 'coned' status will remain on the
Evaluation Comm. and the Hollywood
City Commission after Stage 2 until
the City Manager executes a signed
agreement with the winning bidder.

At which point, no doubt, a day of
national Thanksgiving will likely
be held to commemorate this feat!
And there will be much rejoicing!

Greetings from Hollywood

What a night we had! #HollywoodFL based photographer/entrepreneur Esther Chuang with a very elated Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy at his Victory Party, held at Leo Anato's Atelier3/AT3 on Harrison Street & S. 19th Avenue, Hollywood. AT3's great environment and the amazing variety of food prepared by chef Kevin Dreifuss, former owner/chef of ENDS MEAT restaurant, was SUPERB! November 8, 2016
