UPDATE: Besides the fact that the presser for this project wasn’t publicly noticed on the city website, somehow the news of the presser magically appears on the city website. So is the Riverline District official city business Paul? Or are you using the city website like your personal FB page, in which he posts city business all the time, but has this disclaimer on his page;

Personal account, not associated w/ City of SF

He seems to be blurring the lines of what the role of government is. If you want to push for this project as a CITY, then you should properly NOTICE anything that is involved with this project, like posting a meeting agenda, so that the council can be aware of quorum, and the public can also know. It’s kind of like posting the city council agenda on a Wednesday morning after the Tuesday night meeting. To late.

With the city council agenda page currently offline due to vendor issues, it may start happening.

He just can’t wrap his head around the concept of transparent government. You can’t just tell half the story to the public and expect them to get on board. It would be like picking your car up at the mechanic and when you ask them what was wrong with it, he says, ‘Oh nothing serious, fixed now. $300 please.’

The above photo is of Uptown at the Falls concept, the original concept presented over a decade before any dirt actually moved. As you can see, not exactly what happened. All we got was some poorly insulated apartments and a couple of retailers.

We are going to be presented a lot of BS concepts over the next two years. Get ready, you are going to need a pay loader to clean this up.

Original Post

We only have to look at the Events Center. A place that is profitable, but gives NOTHING back to the taxpayers in the form of bond payments.

A new convention center would be NO different. A bunch of private investors would cash in and the citizens would have to pay a mortgage on a facility they know little about, don’t use and affects their lives very little, you know, like the Denty.

Just another developer scam that the city is trying to sell;

I did get a good laugh out of the new video during weekly pressers, they have a mic and cam on the press finally, though the bridge troll from the angus liar and bike hat boy didn’t help the image of the mayor’s press pool.

Just teasing.

    LOL! So Mayor MisTaken is wearing V neck t-shirts and zip down active wear for press briefings these days. Probably just taking a break from running elementary school phy-ed classes, I guess.

    It’s becoming more and more important to plan on moving to suburbs outside city limits. The city is becoming commercial more than residential. There might be designated recreation areas but they’ll be in slums where it’s not safe and getting there might get you shot and killed. Especially, after dark. If it’s condemned or in a flood plain, it’ll be designated recreational. Small neighboring towns will be an affordable cost of living and lower tax base. Most of all, small cities are democracy. Citizens, have a voice. It won’t be (like this show and tell) political with a few dignitaries deciding how prisoners should be exercised. Facism must be confined to inside city limits where it can be steered around and studied.

    This much acreage must not be set aside for 25 years. The Parks Department recreation concept is likely a way to fix a low land value and scam the county from property tax revenue. An interest (city and/or developer) using a sophisticated government news conference scheme to buy land tax free with public bonds and at low cost is fraud. It’s impossible to predict what Sioux Falls will look like in 25 years. Will this part of the city become a giant Disney-like tourist Mecca or a new land fill? Will this be another toxic cleanup like the 8th Street Railroad Yards? One thing for sure is the city sucks at real estate investment.

    “Mayor Jack Lalanne”:


    ( …. Oh, that’s right, he told us during the covid briefings to stop commenting on how he looked, didn’t he? …….. 🙁 )

    First, Cory disappears. Now, Pat, has lost his Republican backers. A conspiracy theory here, or just the early convulsions of A.I.?
