Councilman Michael Wojcik's Open Letter Calling for Restraint on TIF for the project

January 21, 2017 Public Report On Heart of the City North (Days Inn Replacement)

Wojcik's Open Letter

Per his blog: the $12 million public subsidy for this project is impossible to defend.

Reasons:

1. No obvious public benefit

2. Unsound accounting of developer portion expense/cost structure. They paid too much.

3. Too trivial use of City's TIF funds

Site Information
Beam
  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that Cbeam will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community, Cbeam's distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevancies with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements.

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. Cbeam could be an interesting first step.

Definitions
The following defines the various project phases:
  1. Available - a product, program or service is in production

  3. Plan - idea is solid, stakeholders are identified, and there is strong commitment to go forward from all parties.
  4. Concept Phase - idea scoped out with enough details to give an early sizing and/or to build a proof of concept
    demonstration
