Some Crazy Good Art in The Burg! 09-15-2022
The Shenandoah Valley Watercolor Society’s 36th Annual Member Show is happening in Harrisonburg now through November 4. It features 75 works of watermedia, and many are for sale. Located in VMRC’s Park Gables Gallery at 1491 Virginia Avenue, it’s a wonderful outing, especially when followed by coffee or lunch, or better yet, ice cream!

Backpacks 09-05-2022
Does anyone know the name of the organization that collects backpacks and small suitcases for kids in foster care? They keep them so children do not have to carry their belongings around in plastic bags. We have several to donate.

Monday Morning Mimosas 06-20-2022
Ladies of the neighborhood. It was suggested to me that it would be fun to gather for mimosas on my patio. So, join us on Monday, June 27th at 10:00 am. There will be light snacks and a lot of laughter. No need to bring anything. Fingers crossed for nice weather!

The Rich get Richer, Tues 4PM Simms 06-04-2022
OPINION This is not about poor folks. This is about wealthy folks getting Tax Breaks, based on Bogus DATA The city study referred to here below, counted thousands of student Households as if they were NOT JUST STUDENTS This skewed the ALICE data creating the appearance of Harrisonburg as a POOR community. The CITIZEN (Harrisonburg's online paper) reported “ Proposed development would address shortages for low-income home buyers, renters” ----which included this reporting. The City of Harrisonburg Comprehensive Housing Assessment and Market Study released in January 2021 lays out the need for this type of development. More than 7,800 city households fall below the ALICE threshold of being Asset-Limited, Income-Constrained and Employed. The lowest income group (up to $19,410 for a family of four in 2017) has the smallest housing inventory available and affordable for them. It’s that study that led EquityPlus to propose the development to HRHA last year. “Our realtor made us aware of the Harrisonburg Housing Study that indicated a need for 5,000 units in the Harrisonburg area and identified this parcel as being suitable for addressing this need,” said Avram Fechter, managing director of EquityPlus, a privately-held investment and advisory firm focused on building value using federal and state tax credit investment programs. The Tangled Tale of Tax breaks for the wealthy and increased stress on our schools and other services.

Does anyone Care Tuesday 4 PM Simms Center 06-04-2022
Below is the new website for the Non centered, new Town Center, coming to Garbers Church. https://bluestonetowncenter.com/ guess you cut and paste. I think, we should know: How many single family, detached units are in the master plan? The new web site pictures look very generic, like this could be, Anywhere Flats, USA. If not, can you locate on the actual site where that community center goes? Are children expected? (no play areas are shown with a lot of apartments)? Should at least be at least several play areas with swings and slides. Will all the housing be manufactured units? So, no local builders, subcontractors, or suppliers will be involved.? Has there been an estimate of how many extra millions of dollars of rock breaking there will be? Streets, Sanitary sewer, Water lines, storm sewer, foundations?? Will first time home buyers (attached or detached) be excited to purchase in the same community, as a large subsidized/affordable apartments community? Will the apartments be closest to the CAFO or will the detached homes be closest? And has a setback been determined from the CAFO? (The county uses 600 feet). Other Jurisdiction use 1,000 feet or more.

Does anyone care Tuesday 4PM Simms 06-04-2022
Elizabeth Jerlinski had a meeting scheduled with Michael Wong of HRHA for the folks in the affected Garbers Church neighborhood. HRHA now says we want to hold the meeting at the Simms (old school) Center 4 PM Tuesday. Please consider coming to the meeting. This is a project conceived out of town, by monied interests who do NOT have the city's best interest at heart. It is based on manipulated data and ignores reality in several ways. Ex-Councilman Joe Fitzgerald (DEM), whose wife is vice chair of the Harrisonburg School system, posted this to his blog today https://stillnotsleeping.substack.com/p/unaffordable?s=r I intend another post with a list of questions I suggest need to be answered. Call if I can help 540 820 7979
