Amazing to me. We are complaining about spending money on the Berlin Wall sections. Look at the request for expenditures for these shacks.
We should adopt the State of Maryland program for historic building in putting it up to bid for qualified private people to team up and pay for the restoration. This is just nuts. No one will visit these. Like it or not, this truly is a boondoggle.
Please vote no project, its time for the wrecking ball.

What makes you think nobody will visit them?
I do not necessarily agree that the City should spend a ton of money to save restore them; however I think you are too quick to judge. Historic homes are extremely powerful to have in the City. Young kids can learn a great deal from not only reading about but actually seeing first hand how our early workers in Mtn View lived.

Money spent. We have other priorities. Are we now establishing a bar that is at $150,000? The strategic plan has not occurred. Where is all those points in the plan that this makes sense. It's only I want to do this. It is not in a plan that says we should do this.
I do not believe in unsound judgement. I believe in strategic planning so we don't run out of money or resources, so I want to see that plan before accepting. The government is at the pleasure of the people not the other way around. That being said all voices have to be heard and mine is a CFO strategic planning consultant that says no plan no project. Bad plan no project. Good plan good project. There is no other way. To date I see nothing, just spending money.
