3025 West 25th - slated for taxpayer demo? Wally Saleh?


YESTERDAY - 9/28/2016 at a contentious West 30th St. Block club meeting - the councilman, Brian Cummins, admits the the City of Cleveland is using PUBLIC FUNDS to demolish this building.  The building is "condemned," but it is also for sale?? What gives?  Cummins said he had no idea which contractor is getting this demolition and the proposed demolition for the YMCA building.


Today - 9/9/2016- Cohen Realty sign gone - now listed with Wally Saleh - Encompass Realty (440) 842-9400

Now slated for demo - owned by Sam Khaleq - transfered to other family members and now LLC - unpaid taxes over 12,000

Remember Sam Khaleq??

Once taxpayers demo the property - then what?

I am told Law Dept will be sending a response

  Today is Tuesday, August 9th - I called Building and Housing.  They won't answer my questions until it has been vetted by the law department.  Really?

Left message w/CLE law department on this FOIA

Still no response via email or by phone - request sent from my home computer.

Land Bank responds to Ginmark allegation w/we made mistake

How many mistakes is the Land Bank allowed to make with public monies - handed over to fly-by-night demolition companies?

A Big Thank You to Joe Pagonakis, who consistently listens to the little voice in our community-but I had hoped the coverage would make the connection between Ginmark and development speculation over the mile long corridor along West 25th St. that connects Metrohealth Main and Deaconess campuses.

The planned Land Bank demolition of the YMCA  and "redevelopment" with CHN (contractors under indictment) deserves the most scrutiny - who will get this demo contract and why is the county wiping out 118k in debt on a property when WE are in over 1B in debt?


FOIA response 2 years later ....
