Ribbon cutting for first Linden Meadows house

Although we are still working on the last details of closing, we have scheduled the ribbon cutting / open house for 800 Linden Meadows Court for Thursday, March 20 at 2 pm. US Congressman Baron Hill has accepted our invitation join Mayor Doug England to help us cut the ribbon.

We will also open up our office next door (for sale) as well as another house across the street for walk-throughs.

Freedom Of Speech would like to say:

First, isn't CHDO - Linden Meadows in violation of Zoning Laws? They are operating a home sales business in a residential area. How about fixing the collapsed roof on the other home? This is not a good image in selling overpriced homes. Look around home buyers there are lots of nicer homes through out our city to buy. Besides, they have been sitting there deteriorating for about 4 years.

Second, these are the same houses that appeared in candidate England's TV commercial when he said and we quote: "If elected mayor I will clean up our city substandard homes like these."

What happen to all the so called 300 applicants who were ready to purchase these homes as John Miller has stated time and time again.

Don't you think you might wait until the project is completed before cutting the ribbon?

Freedom Of Speech feels that this has been nothing but a "smoke and mirror project" from the get go!
