The Suicide Cult moves to Macinery Row! My .02

1SU1

Once again, Racine looks like has an active Death Cult.

This time forming around the idea of the Machinery Row “Development” and the huge number of folks that are just demanding not only o move to Racine but are demanding high end Condos (with Marble counter tops right?)

Can’t forget all the boat owners who are pounding on Mayor Dickert’s door daemanding not only Boat slips on the low Root River but need Condos too!

Gets better! Racine needs a Convention Center/Hotel Downtown!! You know we can put that on the old Belle City Marina location!!!! Just think of all the people  who are demanding to move to Racine!!!

Sadly that is the drum beat starting to come out of….  yes come out of Downtown Racine.

I can understand why many of the members of the Cult are saying this for they are IMHO desperate for Racine to get better more so for Downtown Racine if not what then happens? That’s easy  if things stay the same or go further South they will lose the business, some of them will lose everything.

I mean everything sad yes very sad so are we going to rush into Machinery Row to MAYBE MAYBE save a few businesses? After all there is a Consultant  has said there is this unfilled need!! Better get going!!

Of course I have not seen cars from IL and lines of Boaters pounding on the Mayor’s door have you?

Unsaid in any of talking about a Convention Center on the Belle City site is that Milwaukee does not fill what they have AND somehow Racine is going to compete with Milwaukee or even the New large Bar at 94/20 of course we can we will just have to spend more $$!!!

Nor do we talk about who will pay to dredge The Root River from the Lake past Azarian Marina who might that be?  Nor that Reef Point is NOT full and along the river there are many unused slips.

Again I do understand the desperation of the Downtown folks for what will do as Racine continues to shed population, continues to be #1 or #2 in Unemployment  some of the worse Schools in the State of Wisconsin ? What will we do?

Do not worry! If we built it they will Come just like they did for Porters, right?

After all I got told the Developer will spend 6 Million of his own Money then who will come up with the rest of the 65 Million needed? Look in the mirror.

A vist to City Hall

cch

I went to City hall to file an Open Records quite a long one, however I bet that they do not exist (if so that will be very interesting) I also asked to see the Mayor Of Racine’s Statement of Economic interest, the clerk’s staff did NOT want to hear that no not at all.

Even as poorly as we were treated, we were calm  and polite.   Why not we knew the State Law, they (staff we talked too) did not a Staff person said we could not see today what State Law said we could due to them really being busy, we documented that fact and as She asked us to do made an Appointment to view what we nee to see fort not only The Mayor of Racine but all we could why not?

So will be going again tomorrow at the time of our Appointment as the Bear who went over the Mnt did to see what we could see.

Will also be bringing some Black Open Records to save time and gas, because this is just the start of the Rabbit Hole
