Schoencliff Debacle #2
By Jackie Williams
April 17, 2008
Once again, we are being offered the Schoencliff Center, or that
is my opinion after reading the Introduction in the proposal
from Dawson Construction to remodel the more than 75-year-old
building. The mention of tenants; of other groups or agencies
that have invested much time and energy, sounds just like Schoencliff
Center. The collection of property tax that makes it seem like
KGB will have an offset in costs, I believe will be paid by the
KGB through rental fees
Go to the KGB website and read it for yourself; http://borough.ketchikan.ak.us/
on the homepage is a link to all the proposals. There is a special
meeting this Friday, April 18, to discuss proposals and possibly
award a contract. (Schoencliff Debacle #2 is the favored proposal.)
If the old building was replaced with a brand new building, on
this great location, I would be willing to be taxed for this
need and more future generations would be able to use it than
the current proposal. Probably to late for this to happen.
Regarding the Schoenbar Debacle, we the citizens lived it and
have an emotional investment. I believe the community does not
even want to consider such an experience again with another remodel
of an old building.
This is my opinion and no disrespect is intended.
