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

Thumbs up! What a night! #HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and 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 now-closed ENDS MEAT restaurant, was SUPERB! November 8, 2016 Esther Chuang, Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2015
Above, perhaps my most-favorite photo ever of Esther, which is really saying something considering the THOUSANDS that I've actually seen of her, from all over the world. But despite the fact that you can't actually see it here, trust me, her amazing smile and inner and external beauty are there. This photo is an even more amazing achievement when you know the backstory of what it took for Esther to get to the top of the mountain, since it's NOT for the faint of heart. Next time you see her, ask her about that! Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on her birthday, July 10, 2015. That's the Christ The Redeemer statue atop Mount Corcovado way out in the horizon on the top of another mountain, to the left of her head. To the right is the world famous beach of Ipanema and to the left is the equally famous beach of Copacabana. In case you forgot what the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio looks like, up close, plus the Amazon area of Brazil that Esther grew up near in Manaus, here's another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele Bündchen, aka @Gisele.

Abençoado por Deus e bonito por natureza!✨ ������

A floresta Amazônica tem um papel fundamental no equilíbrio do clima na Terra e, portanto, na vida de cada um de nós. Nos últimos anos a proteção diminuiu e o desmatamento aumentou drasticamente. E o que já era ruim, pode ficar ainda pior. Se as medidas que o governo vem tomando não forem vetadas, nosso futuro estará ameaçado. Diga NÃO à diminuição da proteção da Floresta do Jamanxim! Diga NÃO à exploração de minério no coração da floresta! #TodosPelaAmazônia #342Amazonia #TodosPelaAmazonia Assine a petição: link na bio. ������✨���� The Amazon Rainforest plays a key role in balancing the climate on the Earth and therefore in each of our lives. In recent years, protection has decreased and deforestation has increased sharply. And what was already bad can get even worse. If the measures that the government has been taking are not vetoed, our future will be threatened. Say NO to the reduction of the Jamanxim Forest´s protection! Say NO to ore mining in the heart of the Forest! #togetherfortheAmazon
