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.

Community Forum on Johnson Street Redevelopment Monday, March 15 at 6 p.m. at Hollywood City Hall

I will be writing and opining about the Johnson Street RFP
at Hollywood Beach over the weekend,


along with
some photos and video, having put it off since
last week's
formal pitches to the Evaluation Committee,
but wanted
to post this now as a reminder of this very
important event on
Monday, since I received this email
this afternoon from
Hollywood City Hall.

See the city's excellent website for the
Johnson Street RFP

I also encourage you to read
Sara Case's comments at her
Balance Sheet Online website,
http://www.balancesheetonline.com/ and click the Bigger Not
link on the left to see her comments from October 18th.

Sara and I both attended last week's presentation and
much- preferred the Planet Hollywood presentation
to the Margaritaville one, even though there were
some aspects of it that we wish would be modified.

Community Forum on Johnson Street Redevelopment

Monday, March 15, 2010 at 6:00 p.m. at Hollywood City Hall

HOLLYWOOD, FL – The City of Hollywood will host a Community Forum on the redevelopment proposals under consideration for the Johnson Street site on Hollywood Beach on Monday, March 15th at 6:00 p.m. in Room 219 at Hollywood City Hall, 2600 Hollywood Boulevard. Residents will hear presentations on two different redevelopment proposals: Margaritaville at Hollywood Beach and Ocean Resort and Village by Planet Hollywood.

Last summer the City of Hollywood issued a two-stage Request for Proposals (RFP) for the redevelopment of the nearly 6 acres of city-owned land located at Johnson Street and A1A on Hollywood Beach. This RFP was developed after numerous community meetings to gather input from Hollywood residents and business owners about their ideas and priorities for this important beachfront site.

The stage II proposals were due on February 18, 2010. Two development teams submitted proposals: Margaritaville at Hollywood Beach, LLC and Hollywood Beach Partners, LLC for Ocean Resort and Village by Planet Hollywood. These proposals, along with the video of the Stage II Evaluation Committee proceedings, can be viewed on the City’s website, www.hollywoodfl.org, by clicking on “Johnson Street/Beach RFP” under Hot Information.

The Community Forum will provide an opportunity for the public to hear from both development teams and ask questions about each team’s project plans. These public comments, along with the evaluation committee’s recommendation and consultant reports will be forwarded to the City Commission members for their review and consideration in preparation for the April 7th regular City Commission meeting. At that time, the City Commission will discuss the proposals, take additional public comments and be asked to authorize staff to begin negotiations with one or both development groups.

For additional information, please contact Raelin Storey, Public Affairs Director at 954.921.3098.

#HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and entrepreneur Esther Chuang with Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy

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 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 way out in the horizon on the top of another mountain, to the left of her head. �� In case you forgot what the Christ the Redeemer statue looks like, up close, here's another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele Bündchen, aka @Gisele.

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