Dear Islanders,

Let’s talk about the community center.

Last year I proposed that we build a community center. I said that it should not be just a giant gym. The success of the recent art studio we opened at the Nike Base points to the demand for activities beyond just sports. And I said it should replace some of our facilities that need repair—like the Golden Age Center. After all, do we really want to invest hundreds of thousands (if not millions) in updating that old building, (which was once a military bunker)? It needs a roof and a whole lot of other work.

We could make the Community Center a real hub for the island – library, conference rooms, community service offices… I see so much potential after talking to all of you. But to avoid a fiasco, we need to do this right.

The Bedell Shed Revisited

We must learn from our mistakes as a community. Before I was in office, the town built a massive shed to house our Parks Department. It’s off Bedell (1881 Bedell Road). I barked about it during my campaign in 2015. I thought the process was not transparent, not clear, and just not right. Some will say, “It’s legal!” Well, legally defensible maybe. There are shades of legality. But that’s something very different from right.

Let’s examine the bare facts.  Even assuming that the bidding process for the Bedell structure was all tight and done right, let’s look at the reality of what we got for the money we spent.

The Park Maintenance Building is assessed for $600K. That seems about right. It’s a big, pre-fab building with some lipstick on it. But guess what? The purchase price of the building was originally $1,376,184! Moreover, there were change orders (things that were not planned for that had to be added) totaling $56,940.

And on top of that, we paid rent and taxes. You see, before we owned it outright there was a lease agreement, which commenced in Aug 2015 and lasted for close to a year at almost $10,000 a month. Thus, the cost for the $600K building was well over 1. 5 million! All this on a project which was done privately, and was supposed to save us money.

Sound like a good deal to you? I must point out, we still don’t have what was originally promised. The building is fine for its purposes, but not quite like what we expected, including a lack of parking and the fact that we had to add a connecting trail to Veteran’s Park.

Something is wrong with this picture.

I only dig it all up again now because the ghoulish precedent of the Bedell shed is trying to drag us all back down into its grave. I feel that some are trying to do things the same way as a sort of cure or anecdote for their past mistakes. Do we now actually have the arrogance to propose going forward with the community center in the same foolish manner that we built that overpriced shed?

The most common way public projects are built across the country is simple. The public builds on public land. Even going with a private party to construct still requires that the private party meets key legal requirements, like payment of prevailing wages. Thus, before we talk about getting away from the safest model (not just the most legally defensible model) we need to take the proper steps and not just submit an RFP and hope for the best.

I’m solutions oriented. This is what I suggest.

4 STEPS:

1. PROPERLY GATHER INPUT. Have you had a say? Has there been any public hearing about where it should be held or even look like? The answer to each of these questions is a resounding “NO.”

2. CREATE A PROPER DESIGN. Only after we really know what the public wants (or if it wants it) can we create a design.

3. PUT A PRICE TAG ON IT: With a design created and a general geographic location identified, we can better understand what this might actually cost and therefore put it on the table and ask for a vote by the citizens—let’s do this in November!

4. HIRE SOMEONE TO KEEP AN EYE ON IT. Finally, we will need someone to watch over the process, count every screw, every nail, and put their fingerprints over every blueprint.

I will not vote for something that we create on a hunch.

To anyone that claims we can do this in-house I suggest you talk to the Town Engineer.  John is a brilliant man in many ways. But his job is to protect and maintain our Town infrastructure, like the sewer system. Building a Community Center is a totally different role.

To anyone who says they ‘got this’ and that they are as good as the experts, I would say that gathering input and completing a design are two very different things. Relying on few chats with the folks at the Recreation Department and putting together some sketches on a notepad and then thinking you can go on that to build a multi-million dollar facility is just plain nuts.

I’m frustrated that we don’t already have shovels in the ground. You know by now, that I’m about moving forward and not idling in place. I wish we could hurry this thing through, but we have to do it the right way so it is the best it can be for all of Grand Island. I strongly believe we need a Community Center. But we need to ensure community input, ensure proper public accountability, and ensure that we create something we can all be proud of.

Or we could just wing it and build another shed . . .

With highest regards,

Nate

p.s. I am going to start a monthly ‘Coffee Hour with the Supervisor’.  The first Saturday of the month.  The first one will be June 3rd at McMahon’s at 11 am.  Join us!

  • These are things your friend needs to talk about with here doctor and HIV health care team. Getting an HIV positive test result is difficult and stressful. It takes time and support.

Yes it did look at me. I feel guilty as I told the people at the resort about it and hope it’s smart enough not to get caught. Then I looked this up. Amazing to think of an animal being a spirit that is watching over me and yes I could do with some nice surprises soon.

They may taste beneficial, but ready-made foods have very little nutritional value, making you feed on more in order to have enough vitality to get throughout the day. Should you be constantly having these foods, switching to whole grain products and other complex carbohydrates will assist you to have more strength while eating less. Thanks alot : ) for your blog post.

  • Also, I fully admit that the “psychological benefit of the doubt” can be a very self-righteous and condescending response to another person, but I don’t know of anything better yet. I suppose it’s less condescending if one remains open about ones own temporality of self-control. Emotions are just like that. Or so my experience has been thus far.

As we were getting closer to the stables I saw a man hitting a horse, also a chestnut, the horse was on it’s hind legs trying to pull free. Then suddenly the horse lay down on it’s side. Blood was flowing from it’s side. I was shocked at what I saw and started running towards the stables, shouting at the man to stop and saw that there were 3 horse’s lying on their sides with blood streaming out the wounds. When I reached the horses I was relieved to see that they were stil alive and that I could still help them. Then I woke up.

  • Hello, I’m new here (looking forward to buying your first book some time next month, and omg do you have reasonable prices on the zafus in you site shop), and to all these things (zen and its community) in general, but I think that may be the right stance for this. Too many details that are irrelevant to the correct response. If life and limb are not at risk, I say that all conflicts should eventually be resolved with kind words. However, we are humans and are not always capable. At bare minimum, it usually takes time to cool off enough to seek reconciliation. Sometimes we never get to that point. What’s important to remember is that you can not blame your enemies for a lack of reconciliation. There is almost always some set of truthful words that could reconcile the deepest conflicts. We must admit to ourselves that regardless of their failings we have either failed to find those words or held too much pride to use them. This is even more difficult in many cases than simply finding and using them. Everyone has their reasons for their behaviors, not all of them logical or moral. One must try to empathize with the failings of others, even when their failings are directed aggressively at our own person. We are best at doing this if we try to understand their motives, but if we can’t understand, we must acknowledge our own ignorance and give them the psychological benefit of the doubt. We may not always be capable of this response (I rarely am), but I believe it to be the correct one. In this case, I find it easier as an observer to keep a clear head by not reading the articles in the first place, but I will say that in the case of the admin, if I ran a site and gave people I knew the ability to post articles on it, I would let them post whatever they wanted as long as I found their postings to be honest. It’s important to let contributors have their freedom. I’m going to stay out of further specifics (as I probably should have there) as I am not qualified to speak on them and feel it muddys the basic issues involved. I only wish I was capable of what feels like such lucidity when I wasn’t half asleep. Looking forward to finally getting your book(s) when I’m less broke, D351.

  • I have been going through some challenging times lately. I have an attraction towards long legs. Do not ask me why. Yesterday I went to see Sumatra Tigers at a Park and today walking in a populated area near a lagoon after seeing a bunch of white birds at a distance fly back and forth I saw a coyote run in front of me from a golf area across a street to another bushed area before the next golf area. Yes it did look at me. I feel guilty as I told the people at the resort about it and hope it’s smart enough not to get caught. Then I looked this up. Amazing to think of an animal being a spirit that is watching over me and yes I could do with some nice surprises soon.

  • As with any symptoms, this is something to discuss with your doctor. Some people who are diagnosed HIV positive when their CD4 count is already very low, have nerve damage caused by HIV. This is called neuropathy. Another cause is the HIV drug stavudine (d4T).
