Every weekend for the past few years my friends and I go skateboarding, a lot of the time in summit with the same outcome. Pedestrians will call the police or people will yell at us for even just riding our boards.
To be honest we are all tired of it and the last time a police officer stopped us I asked him where we can skate and his reply was "where you do not get caught". I really do not like to think of ourselves as "Criminals" the way the police make us feel, we just are some kids who are doing something fun and positive to keep us on track. This is why Summit needs a skatepark.We can not drive to chatham or Livingston, and they are too far to skateboard/ bike to. Recently the town of Colonia in Woodbridge township built a skatepark, and a 175,000 dollars has just been approved to build a new one in Maplewood.
Now we have thought out thoroughly logistics and a great spot for one would be behind the train station where there was a fire at a car dealership a few years back. It seems like it is just being cleaned up. Another location would be in memorial field or in the park behind the train station.
The Wilson Highschool Tennis Courts in Long Beach, CA have been vandalized for people have cut the nets, oiled the courts, and thrown shattered glass. Unfortunately, because of vandalism and without the money to hire a supervisor, the City has closed the Wilson Tennis Courts in Long Beach, CA to the public, taking it away from the community.
My name is Michelle Truong and I'm a sophomore at Wilson Classical Highschool(right next to the tennis courts). With the help of my team and whnever time allows, we are trying to raise $4,500 to reopen the courts. This has upset me and my community for we had no say in the decision of closing the courts. I have petitioned and written a complaint letter to the City. I have even written to Roger Federer for assistance. I need help reopening the tennis courts to the community. I deeply feel that it's wrong for the City to take away the rights of the public and I need help.
Press Telegram has even written a column of my efforts which can be viewed here: http://www.presstelegram.com/columnists/ci_22691362/shore-patrol-wilson-classical-tennis-players-find-access
I have contacted USTA (United States Tennis Association) and I have even written a letter to Roger Federer and several other famous tennis players for help. Press Telegram has even written a column of my efforts. I want to spread the news and get more people involved. Whenever time allows, my team and I will try to fund-raise the $4,500 it takes to hire a supervisor to supervise the courts.
We, the people of Long Beach and supporters for this cause, encourage the Re-Opening of the Wilson Tennis Courts to the public. The City should Reopen the Tennis Courts to the public on the weekends to allow children and the people the time, space, and opportunity to play, and preserve the community’s right to enjoy tennis by using the tennis courts that their property taxes pay for.
The Urbz: Sims in the City was an absolutely amazing game which was a nice touch away from the traditional Sims games, where the player was an 'Urb', a Sim-ish character that travelled around the urban city and gain a reputation.
Also, there was a nice touch from a small appearance from the Black Eyed Peas.
I live next to the High School, in Biddeford, Maine. During renovations at the High School, Ledgewood Construction damaged a fence that separates my property from the High School. The School Department wanted Ledgewood Construction to replace the fence.
In order to replace the fence along my property, Ledgewood Construction Company would have to cut down 10-12 trees on my side of the fence, that had grown into the fence over the years. The Facilities Director came to my property and we negotiated a deal to allow Ledgewood Construction to cut down the trees.
The deal was, I would suffer the loss of the trees and they would put in an 8 foot stockade fence. After the trees were cut down, the fence was replaced with another chain link fence.
City of Biddeford Code; Section 53 Primary and secondary schools, fraternal organizations, and not-for-profit clubs. [Ord. No. 2001.45, 5-16-2001]
Schools, fraternal organizations and not-for-profit shall be permitted as a conditional use in accordance with the provisions below:
A. The buffers standards of this ordinance shall be met.
B. No building shall be closer than 50 feet from any property line.
C. When adjacent to residential properties, parking areas and outdoor activity areas shall be effectively screened from view by a continuous vegetative barrier, or stockade fence, not less than six feet in height.
Currently the City of Halifax drastically underfunds its large arts organizations compared to other Cities in Canada. Recent annual grants were at approximately $18,000 for Symphony Nova Scotia compared to $500,000 in London, a similar-sized Canadian City with a similar-sized orchestra.
A City with a strong infrastructure for funding its orchestra ensures continued health of its arts community. This is a benchmark for attracting new businesses and citizens to the area. Without sufficient City funding, organizations like Symphony Nova Scotia struggle to make ends meet and cannot implement meaningful initiatives such as innovative programming and education programs for outreach to the youth of our communities.
With the huge financial gains HRM makes from having a vibrant and innovative arts community, it makes sense to create infrastructure for ongoing yearly appropriate funding that doesn't require ongoing re-application. HRM needs to fund at a level that ensures the lasting health and prosperity of such organizations as Symphony Nova Scotia, the Atlantic Film Festival, Brookes Diamond Productions, 2b Theatre Company, Dalhousie Centre for the Arts, Mermaid Theatre, Theatre Nova Scotia, Halifax Pop Explosion, Onelight Theatre, LiveArt Dance, Eastern Front Theatre, Music Nova Scotia, Neptune Theatre, Halifax Dance, Scotia Festival of Music and all local writers and publishers and visual artists.

Today is a sad day for the city of Holland, Michigan, particularly for one resident who was trying to help out his family survive. That family-dedicated resident is none other than 13-year-old Nathan Duszynski.
The reason why this petition was made for him is because he and his family are in a shelter after being denied from selling hot dogs from a mobile stand. You see, Nathan was trying to help his family to survive in Holland, Michigan because his mother and father are disabled. He signed up for his own food cart to earn some money. But the moment he started to sell at a local sporting goods store, City Hall shut it down. Now they have two different homes to cope with the parents' different disabilities.
The point is they shut him down because he was not connected to any business, but it was still unfair for him and his family. So, this petition is a rallying cry for signers, not just from Holland, Michigan, but from the entire United States and the world as a whole, to support him in on of these ways:
a) Convince at least one of the brick and mortar businesses to train him for a job within their premises.
b) Start a Kickstarter fundraiser for Nathan Duszynski to help him train to be a businessman and run a great business.
c) Convince City Hall to let him sell his hot dogs in a store and even hire others in hot dogs carts to spread the goods.
If everyone helps out Nathan to earn money legally, we will be a better world of people for all to see.

Thank you for supporting Nathan Duszynski!
Grand Theft Auto was probably your favorite game at one point, as for millions of others. Hopefully this petition will catch the eye of Rockstar Games, and they may start a Grand Theft Auto Trilogy HD (For PC, Xbox 360, Playstation 3, ect.) so we can re-live these amaizing games.
Skateboarders are woven into the cultural fabric of every urban community in North America. While young, they are stewards of the creative force that adds diversity to our cities.
Skateboarding is an essential option for a huge percentage of today’s youth; nearly a quarter of the 61-million youth in the U.S. skated this year and most of those identify themselves as ―skateboarders.‖
Given skate boarding’s popularity it’s surprising that so many cities have perhaps one skate park, maybe two, to meet the needs of their thousands of youth. While this need remains, the news is filled with rising obesity rates, struggles with urban sprawl, and juvenile delinquency.
Skateboarding is clearly not the sole solution for these community issues, but it’s obviously what millions of kids want to be doing. We can support this healthy, positive activity by making sure that there are enough skate parks (or places to skate), and that they’re designed and built for sustainability and success.
The Pineview Golf course has lost money five out of the last nine years. The Pineview Golf Course received a scathing report by the Auditor General siting gross mismanagement of the site.
The City of Ottawa is reviewing money losing venture and closed down the Nepean National Equestrian Park because it was losing money as well.
We feel the reasons for closing the NNEP should be applied to the Pineview Golf Course and it too should be closed.
This petition is to demonstrate to the Tavares City Council that the citizens of Tavares, employees of businesses located within the City of Tavares, and Tavares Police Department employees and their families want to keep the Police Dispatch Center in-house.
The City made this same move several years ago, and ultimately brought the dispatch center back in-house, investing in the most up-to-date technology and creating an eight person team, dedicated to providing the best service possible to the Citizens of Tavares and the Officers they rely on.
The loss of the dispatch center will not only impact the eight individuals who rely on their jobs, but also the Officers they support and the Citizens who depend on them for prompt and courteous assistance with their emergency and non-emergency needs.
Gosford City Council is a member of ICLEI which is a United Nations-sponsored group which designs and writes policy for your area on land use, energy goals and measurement, and water usage.
ICLEI is a paid consultant and/or receives dues from your taxes & Rates and received Tax Exemption status in Australia.
ICLEI was formed after the United States (George Bush, Sr.) and 178 other nations met at the United Nations Rio Earth Summit in 1992 and agreed to use certain principles as their guidelines. Those guidelines include major reductions in energy and water usage, and huge increases in the number of living units in city centers. This is called UN Agenda 21-Sustainable Development.
In 1993 President Clinton formed the President’s Council on Sustainable Development and gave a multi-million dollar grant to the American Planning Association to write Growing Smart: A Legislative Guidebook to bring UN Agenda 21 to the United States. Smart Growth was the result. Multi-story condos or apartments over small retail with little parking, crammed in your town center. The reason for this style of construction is that, as UN Secretary General Maurice Strong said, ‘the affluence of Americans is a threat to the planet.’ Single family homes are a threat.
Across the nation, in large cities and small towns, like this one, identical programs are being rolled out. Land use restrictions, ordinances reducing energy usage, Smart Meters, school programs, & candidate trainings, are designed and implemented without your vote. You may be invited to city visioning meetings, but the outcome is decided before you enter the room.
Using ICLEI greenhouse gas emissions goals, your local government is in the process of controlling where and how you live, what you eat, what your children learn, and what laws you will live under. With the cover of ‘environmental concern’ your personal rights are being restricted. Soon, you will lose the right to travel freely without being asked for your ID. Lose the right to water your garden. Lose the right to refuse a Smart Meter. Lose the right to live in a rural area. Lose the right to drive a private vehicle.
Under the guise of ‘Sustainable Development’ your property and civil rights are being systematically eliminated.
KICK ICLEI OUT OF GOSFORD.
ONE BIG PROBLEM HERE IN ST. PETERS, MO IS THERE IS NO PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION.
THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE WITHOUT VEHICLES THAT NEED TO GET OUT AND ABOUT AND CANNOT.
ST. PETERS, MO IS TOO BIG OF A CITY TO NOT HAVE PUBLIC TRANSIT.
The City of West Palm Beach, Florida currently restricts all Mobile Food Vendors from operating in a zone they have designated as Downtown (from Palm Beach Lakes Blvd to Okeechobee Blvd and Flagler Dr to Australian Ave).
The City of West Palm Beach also restricts Mobile Food Vendors from operating closer than one block in proximity to each other, without a special event permit. The current cost for a special event permit is, $50 non-refundable application fee and a minimum of $500 per occasion.
The City of West Palm Beach is currently searching for ADDITIONAL regulations to be placed on mobile food vendors. Ideas such as, having all vendors park in a central location for a tourist attraction and restricting proximity to existing businesses are being proposed.
Many of the youth of Chandler have expressed desire for an arcade, a public place to meet and play video games, but never publicly. Many of the arcades are not close by, and require making special trips on weekends or holidays.
There is a demand for arcades in Chandler, and teenagers, as well as adults, would be willing to frequent this establishment and spend money there. Chandler City is always expanding, and a well-placed arcade has the good possibility of making a large profit.
With the demise of BMX racing at Monroe Crossings park, the fenced area that contained the track is available for use. The city has spent $12,500 for the fencing and is now removing the dirt hills to flatten the 2 acre space.
Several people, including Public Works, have approached us, a local non-profit animal welfare organization, to gauge interest in reusing this for a dog park, MonRover Park, & form a committee.
Some residents of the adjacent subdivision are currently using this fenced area as an unofficial off leash park for their pets. The nearest dog park is Wiggly Field, 12 miles south at VOA in West Chester.
Dog parks are a popular amenity that offer diversity, year round use, low maintenance, and attract profitable animal related events to the city. Portions can be leased to dog training clubs, host agility events & offer room to exercise working animals such as canine officers & therapy dogs.
The most expensive requirement for a dog park is the land & fence - the former BMX track offers both, along with a picnic table & fenced bleacher area. There is also a large paved parking lot, restroom/concession area & state of the art playground equipment & multi acre soccer fields. Basic items that are needed is additional fencing to separate small dogs from the large dogs, a double gated entry, signage, some bench’s & landscape items such as trees.
Funding would be attained via a combination of major sponsorship, corporate & private donations, fundraising & assorted grants. Just last year, Nutro Foods gave away $500,000 for the development of a dog park.
We have held our first committee meeting & have interest from the community.
I am making this petition to persuade the FA to make it more difficult for wealthy businessmen to take over clubs and give them an unfair advantage.
A good example of this was the takeover of English club Manchester City FC by Mansour bin Zayed al Nahyan in September 2008. The club have become a top club in the world signing some of the most skilled players in the game, such as Robinho, Carlos Tevez, Sergio Aguero, David Silva, Edin Dzeko, Mario Balotelli and Samir Nasri.
Manchester City FC do not have a history of great success, whereas clubs such as Manchester Utd, Chelsea and Arsenal do. But Man City were just taken over and suddenly become one of the best teams.
Aston Villa used to be one of the most successful teams, winning the league, FA Cup and other competitions, but now they are less successful and normally slipping into the top half.
Please sign to stop football teams getting unfair advantages by takeover by rich businessmen and the signing of quality players.
Inspired by the 11 September 2011 'Naked City' article proposing a 'Cock-O-Rail' approach to preserving Sydney's monorail system and providing an alternative to the proposed culling of cockatoos at Potts Point. Both are fantastic - why not preserve (combine?) them?
Transit drivers in Hamilton have told me many passengers experience problems with the Presto pass. One Presto worker threatened to revoke my monthly pass mid-month if a questionable $2.75 fare indicated by Presto was not paid.
As Toronto is / will be also implementing the Presto pass system, and we face an election October 6 in Ontario, I felt this a good time to question the accuracy of Presto passenger records from the pass, and the arrogance of workers and administrators of Presto.
Regarding street artists and vendors at the Second Saturday art walk. These hard working artists make most of their money on this night - and used to make most of it between the hours of 8 and 10 pm.
With the art walk closing at 8 pm - it has greatly impacted many people. The customers coming in through the art walk are also disappointed that they don't get done with dinner in time to come out and buy.
During the Summer, many people will not come out until the later hours due to heat, thus impacting artists even more.
It has been recently announced that www.ourbrisbane.com is going to be shut down.
This is a valuable local resource that needs our support.
Please sign to save the building and to keep the building and to preserve the heritage for generations to come.
it is One of the original Oscar Deutsch chain of Odeon Theatres. The Portsmouth Odeon opened on 14th December 1936 with Sydney Howard in "Chick". It was the largest and most expensive Andrew Mather designed Odeon of that year. Total seating was provided for 1,824, with 1,224 in stalls and 600 in balcony.
It has an impressive monolithic tower frontage in cream faience with vertical green bands and a roof of red Spanish tiles. The auditorium's ornate decoration included tall murals on side walls depicting film subjects.
A two week closure from 10th September 1960 for modernisation, including installation of 70mm with new wide screen and proscenium in front of original. Then began a glorious period through the 1960's of almost uninterrupted Roadshow presentations (with the Gaumont almost opposite taking the Rank first-run weekly release).
Tripling took place on 26th August 1973, with 573 seats in screen 1 (former balcony) and 132 in each of the mini-screens located in the rear stalls under the balcony. In 1990 a fourth screen was added in the former front stalls area and a new screen was installed in screen 1. Further refurbishment has taken place since then and the current seating is 1. 631, 2. 229, 3. 179, 4. 259.
In March of 2011 a St. John's (NL) City Councilor introduced a motion calling for a full review of City Council.
It was requested to have a full review conducted of Council including but not limited to:
- Responsibilities, and
This motion was rejected in a 9 to 1 vote. A truly accountable Council with the best interests of the people in mind would have nothing to hide, and would welcome a review to show areas where improvements could be made, or operations made more efficient.
23. Charter Change
Those of us who so choose to be involved in our local city government should be afforded the right to do so. As business owners we pay city taxes, we support our schools and our local police, fire and emergency personnel.
The right to vote should be ours, we made a large investment in this city when we opened our business here and we hire a lot of it's workers. We should have the right to vote on the things that matter to our business as well.
The changes or the non changes that are made effect whether or not we stay or we relocate. The people who make the decisions for the city make the decisions with our future at stake as well. We should have our say in the progress and the direction that Pryor embarks on.
We shouldn't have zoning. They always call the United States the "Land Of Opportunity" but if they won't let us build what we want where we want, that isn't much opportunity is it? Outlawing zoning in the USA would satisfy a lot of people, including me. We should be able to build what we want where we want because:
a) more jobs, less unemployment
c) more space in a city
and much more! Please sign today.
Petition against the plans to permanently close The City Gallery in Leicester and reduce all public contemporary art provision in the city.
Leicester City Council has now drawn up it’s proposed budget for 2011/12 to 2013/14 (http://www.leicester.gov.uk/budget2011/) It has also submitted a new report to the Overview & Scrutiny Management Board (See proposal CS 05 on page 17 http://www.cabinet.leicester.gov.uk/mgConvert2PDF.aspx?ID=24432) meeting on the 3rd February prior to proposals being potentially approved by Cabinet on 21st February and Council on 23rd February.
These new plans are similar to those submitted back in early December 2010 and result in funding for the City Gallery (and therefore contemporary art in Leicester) reducing from the current 2010/11 amount of £311,000 to £69,000 by 2012/13 – a 78% cut.
Whilst some of the details have altered slightly from the plans submitted to the Overview & Scrutiny Management Board in late November 2010, the substance of these proposals remains the same. The cut is still massive and leaves Leicester without any dedicated space for contemporary arts. Leicester is due to be the first city in the country to cut is only contemporary art gallery.
Below details the petition drawn up on 30th November 2010 based on the published proposals to the Overview & Scrutiny Management Board (30th November 2010), since withdrawn (7th December) then resubmitted with slight alterations and no other options (27 January 2011).
Our objections all these plans stand as they were with two minor alterations:
Objection point 5 has been given more clarification in the new proposal ‘CS 05’ (reduction in FTE posts from 6.24 to 2) but still does not make clear cuts to other workers (i.e. Educational project leaders & helpers).
Objection point 6 is now a £69k budget rather than the £34k budget, still a radical cut and still resulting in reduced contemporary art offer and exhibition space in New Walk Museum.
A report has been submitted to the Overview and Scrutiny Management Board, of Leicester City Council, prior the their meeting on 7th December with a recommendation to: “Integrate contemporary visual art services within the exhibition programme and overall offer at New Walk Museum and Art Gallery.”
These plans permanently close The City Gallery, provide a radically reduced (financially by 86.7%) contemporary visual art exhibition & education programme for Leicester and lose around £126,909 of inward investment from Arts Council England per year.
Details of previous plans submitted in December can be found here: http://www.cabinet.leicester.gov.uk/mgConvert2PDF.aspx?ID=23614
We object to these cuts to services and seek clarification as to why:
• The options do not include a continuation of the current provision of exhibitions by City Gallery staff based at New Walk Museum, nor do they include cheaper development options either in the Central Lending Library or in other council or privately owned buildings. They are only options for large capital costs or large reductions in service.
• Options to work with other arts and/or education organisations within the city to provide a dedicated space for the display and education in contemporary art do not seem to have been explored.
• There appears to have been no consultation with current, previous and potential users of The City Gallery, or with other arts/education organisations within the city to determine to need and therefore the loss to the city if provision was radically reduced or completely withdrawn.
• Arts Council funding of £126,909 for 2011/12 will not be available without a robust programme of exhibitions - these proposals do not constitute a robust programme. Also and the option to apply for funding from 2012 onwards has been discounted thus loosing a potential investment into Leicester’s visual arts of £463,471 over four years (based on ACE 15% reduction on 2010/11 City Gallery funding).
• Under ‘Legal Implications’ Section 5.2.2 it states that: “Possible redeployment and redundancy issues for affected staff are identified in the report.” But these are not clearly identified in the report. The current number of staff, (full-time, part-time and sessional staff) are not referred to in the report and therefore a judgment on the implications of the loss of some or all of these by the Councilors at the Overview and Scrutiny Management Board is not possible.
• The proposed Option 2 budget of £34,000 per annum for the integration of City Gallery services to: “cover the staffing costs of exhibition, learning and community engagement support at New Walk Museum and Gallery.” With: “All other costs […] would be found from New Walk Museum and Gallery’s existing budget.” Would result in a loss of exhibition space and budget for New Walk Museums traditional program of displays, as well as representing in a reduced contemporary art offer, education offer and community engagement.
This petition is to ask Leicester City Council to immediately re-think these proposals and:
• Continue with current City Gallery services maintaining the 2011/12 funding from Arts Council England whilst a plan is developed for a sustainable and permanent space for contemporary visual art provision in Leicester.
• Consult with current and past users of City Gallery services, other arts/education organisations and key potential funders to determine the need for these services and how these needs can best be met within potential resources.
• Consult with Arts Council England and apply to the ‘National portfolio funding programme’ for funding from 2012 onwards (by the advertised deadline of 22nd January 2011).
• Clearly identify the implications on staffing including numbers of permanent and sessional staff that will be moved out of the organisation or made redundant.
Whilst it is acknowledged that with large cuts to local council funding as well as Arts Council funding new ideas must be thought of, we feel that these plans to not provide adequate arts services to Leicester. We are therefore feel duty bound to request that the plans be revisited with a view to finding new ways to provide contemporary visual arts in Leicester.

All Ontarians have a right to affordable housing.
Whereas an unacceptable number of individuals and families are ‘precariously housed’, meaning they are in a state of uncertainty around their living environment due to low wages, high rents, high utility costs and/or substandard living conditions (Affordable Housing Action Network),
Whereas, according to Ontario Non-Profit Housing Association’s Report on Waiting List Statistics for Ontario, it is estimated that there are 142,000 individuals and families on Ontario’s subsidized housing waiting list and the number is growing,
Whereas, according to City of Toronto’s Report Card on Homelessness, the current waiting list for 2 bedroom units and larger is 10-15 years,
Whereas The Daily Food Bank reported that, in 2008, the average food bank clients used 68% of their income on rent,
Whereas there is $50 million left from a rent supplement program that municipalities have a flexibility to allocate the funds according to local needs (The Toronto Star, September 15, 2010),
Whereas there are not enough units contracted by the City to provide affordable housing to those in need,
Whereas, according to Statics Canada, this will affect Ontarians not just on an emotional but also on a physical level,
Whereas instability with regards to financial matters has a negative impact on one’s physical and mental well being and it affects everyone that is involved in these people’s lives (CBC News, May 9, 2005).

The City of Diamond Bar is considering the approval of a Specific Plan and EIR to change land use and zoning to enable the development of 202 to 253 high-density housing units and 154,000 square feet of retail commercial/office.
The proposed plan was drafted without any community input and poses many adverse impacts to the surrounding community.

Parliament of Georgia

Tbilisi City Council
Ministry of Culture, Monument Protection and Sport of Georgia
We are appealing to those who understand that cultural heritage is not a matter of taste, but a fact, in other words, a value that should be protected; to those who know that Stalinist architecture (especially as because this architectural momument belongs to A. Shchusev), is equally valuable for our culture as other civic or religious facilities built in various periods of our history; to those who think that ‘new’ should not be built at the expense of ‘old’.
Tbilisi, 29 Rustaveli Avenue is the address of a former a branch of Marxism and Leninism Institute building, where recently the Constitutional Court was located. This building was built according to the project of a famous Russian architect Alexey Shchusev in 1933-1938. The importance of this building for Georgian, specifically Tbilisi history and architecture is widely known. It is the unique, high-quality example of architecture of the Stalin era. Apart from its architectural value, the factor contributing to its uniqueness is that the world famous architect A.Shchusev designed not only the façade of the building, but every detail of its interior. A special project was designed by A. Shchusev for interier decoration - all the door handles, chandeliers, lamps, furniture for the assembly hall - was made by well-known painters and craftsmen according to that plan.
The way this building was planned, its architecture and the construction process itself was specific professional school for young Georgian architects. We would like to remind that during this process pumice stone and concrete reinforced constructions were used for the first time. A good deal of books and articles were dedicated to arvhitectural and artistic value of the building. Until recently, the facade of the building was decorated by high reliefs made by famous sculpture Jakob Nikoladze and beautiful frieze created by well-known Georgian sculpture Tamar Abakelia.
All the above said proves once again the importance and value of the building at 29 Rustaveli Avenue, which used to be a branch of Marxism and Leninism Institute.
Due to the decision of bureaucrats at the Ministry of Culture and Tbilisi City Hall, which was based on the order N3/181 of 01 October 2007 ‘On cultural heritage protection’, signed by the Minister of Culture, Monument Protection and Sport of Georgia, seriously breaching the law, the ’Imeli’ building was removed from the list of the monuments with cultural heritage status. The building was granted the cultural significance status in 1986. This is the year when the first record of immovable statues was made.
After depriving of the status, the building was sold profitably. The new owner dismantled the left, four-storey wing of ‘Imeli’ without having any official permission. A very big part of the remaining roof has also been removed. Atmospheric precipitations continuously permeates through, thus creating hazardous conditions for the building. The interfloor cover is demolished, bearing walls, assemply hall, the unique interier and archive materials, doors and windows are removed, this fabulous monument of cultural heritage is consistently demolished.
After demontstrations, numerous articles and various urban activisms organised by ‘Tiflis Hamkari’, despite the promise of the investor, there still does not exist a project approved by the Tbilisi City Hall architeture service, the permit of demolition, a guarantee to maintain the building, an expert conclusion of sustainability of the construction and geological research.

Norwich South parliamentary candidate Antony Little has called for action to save our City's grass verges!
Responding to the concerns of hundreds of residents regarding the state of Norwich's green verges, Antony has launched a campaign to see them cleaned up, protected and most importantly, green.
Commenting, Antony said: "I have launched this campaign regarding the state of our green verges because it has been an issue that has arisen often on the doorstep. I hope I can have the support of residents in pushing the council to seek solutions to this, such as installing wooden posts and more trees to stop cars driving onto the verges in the first place."
"We are lucky to have a very beautiful City where many residents take a great deal of care and pride over the appearance of Norwich. By protecting our grass verges and ensuring that they don't become tyre track covered mud pits, we can create a more pleasant environment for all."
"I encourage residents of all political leanings to sign up and save our grass verges!"
Labour have been in control of Glasgow City Council for far too long, and as a result I believe they have become corrupt. on April 1st 2010 a request was given to vote on an enquiry to the dealings within the council. Labour voted against an enquiry, so what have they got to hide?
Some of these council leaders should not be allowed to remain in office and should be replaced A.S.A.P.
Our city is bleeding hundreds of thousands of pounds per year on jobs for the boys.
This needs to stop now.
