Shameful

Thank you Mr. Amidon and Mr. Brown for submitting your letter. This is a bigger loss for Rome than most people realize. How this demo received a permit without planning board review is beyond me. More " fast n loose" with the rules is my opinion. This time the cost was far too dear. Some one should be held accountable! Very sad indeed.

I agree. Terrible and it just goes to show how dirty things around Rome really are.

It was a run down piece of crap building. Thank goodness it is down. It was privately owned. The owners did what they wanted to do with it. Not the city's fault.

For better or for worse that is NOT how it works. Have YOU ever tried replacing windows, adding a deck, rebuilding front steps, etc. on a historic house? These are all examples of items that needed city approval in the last few years. You might not like it "but dems is da rules".

Interesting, but it does not address the sidestep done on the rules.

You need to take your head out of your ass. That house receive rehab money and the inside was in great shape. The outside needed paint but there was nothing wrong with the place. Welcome to Fusco world. If you know who to blow you can get anything done, and the rules do not apply to certain people. They screwed over the guy trying to refurbish the place across the street for the Amish Market with all the rehab shit and when he sinks all that money in it the city takes it back to give to one of the Jimmy Boys. Rome sucks and so does the Idiot running it.

Mr. Brown and Mr. Amidon have now documented the proof that they are either political operatives or have no compulsion of stating opinions complete devoid of fact.

Seriously dude? The inside was in great shape? The foundations were severely damaged and estimates for repair were in the 6-figure range. Why post here anonymously? Why not take your statements to one of the Rome Facebook groups where you can be held accountable for your wild-assed lies?

Cowards and politicians. And trolls. Go figure.

francor,
You are right about their own agenda. Mayor Brown did not rehab the rest of the neighborhood as promised. To invest any more money into the house was a bad investment since there would be no return on that investment. When they sold it they did take a loss. The market determined whether or not it was worth saving. Notice the lack of insulation when it came down. Would you want to pay that heat bill?
Once the Advisory Committee was set up, I was an original member, we changed the three years to five years and would not have allowed as much to be put into one property. By the way, the Advisory Committee was established at the request of HUD to try to prevent giving CDBG funds as political favors.
Certain people in Rome like to throw good money after bad to help certain people.

What I would like to know is where all the architectural stuff went from the house. Also all the solid oak trim from inside, as well as other items. That stuff was/is worth thousands. Where is it?
