Update - lost opportunity for Art House

SEE HOW Akron SAVED their history :

THANK YOU Ginny Wojno - you inspire me!


Art House can not do anything with a mobster councilman like Tony Brancatelli - how the City of Cleveland decertified or wited out what is essentially federal monies that were misused to buy real estate is beyond me, but this is CLE folks.  Sickening :

At this point, any action taken by Art House is considered to be private and not a federal undertaking. The City decertified the funds that had been encumbered for the Art House expansion/rehabilitation project in December of 2013.


Per 24 CFR 570.503(b)(7)a., property acquired in whole or in part with CDBG funds that is within a subrecipient’s control, must “be used by the subrecipient to continue to meet one of the CDBG program’s national objectives for at least 5 years after the expiration of the subrecipient agreement (or a longer time as specified by the grantee in the subrecipient agreement).


Since the Art House contract and associated CDBG funds were decertified more than 5 years ago, and its contract with the City stipulated that programming must be carried out “for at least five years following the date of the final disbursement of Grant funds,” there are no federal requirements for continuation of services or requirements on the use of the property still in place, therefore, no Section 106 review will be conducted for the proposed demolitions.


Thank you,

DSCDO who stole the marble fireplace out of Wirth House??

 Some one pulled out the marble fireplace at Wirth this point - all WE as residents can do is make sure that Tony Brancatelli NEVER holds any public office again.  He is beyond despicable.
