Though Becker & Poliakoff attorney Alan Koslow is clearly very good at his job, as we in Hallandale Beach and environs have often learned the hard way, as I've often chronicled to my chagrin the past nine years on this blog, I believe Koslow is, perhaps single-handedly, MORE
responsible than any other single party I can think of -over the past dozen years- for defending and advancing the often parochial and short-term interests of the myriad developers who've proposed the largest number of buildings in Hallandale Beach that were either incompatible to the existing neighborhood, inappropriate under current HB zoning rules or just plain UGLY to look at.
It's actually easier to think of which projects he hasn't been involved with in some capacity or another.
And unfortunately for Hallandale Beach's long-term health and future Quality of Life, Mayor Joy Cooper and Commissioners Bill Julian and Anthony A. Sanders have voted for EVERY one of them, too, even when the majority of HB's citizens were clearly opposed or wanted some reasonable modifications.
Over the years, people I meet and talk to at various public meetings around Broward county have often been confused about which real estate/development attorney was responsible for which specific project or proposal in Hallandale Beach or Hollywood, since there have been so many.
So, to those of you who've already emailed me about this, I don't believe Koslow was involved with the latest round of Diplomat development melodrama, rather it was Debbie Orshefsky.
Orshefsky left Greenberg & Traurig for Holland & Knight subsequent to the first go-round of Diplomat Golf Course melodrama -i.e. Diplomat LAC- a few years ago that the citizens of HB won, thanks in large part to my good friend and fellow Broward civic activist Csaba Kulin's very dedicated work ethic and tireless efforts to engage and educate the community, using reason, facts and common sense, not half-truths.
ICYMI on Thursday: My two cents!
Have a great Memorial Day weekend!
