1) Fruitvale Village 2, Phase 1 Better not cost more than the ridiculous $53,050,000.00 You have approved. San Leandro has built a superior
Development called Marea Alta across Street from Marina Bart for $38,000,000.00 providing 115ea 1, 2, & 3 Bedroom Apartments for
$38,000,000.00, This includes a 240 car Garage to serve BART & the Residents. They opened their phase 1 5-17-2017, 1 week ago.
They have started on Phase 2. 85 Senior Apartments, at cost of $20,000,000.00. So, for $58,000,000.00 San Leandro receives
200 Units, & 240 Garage Spaces.
Our Unity Council has hired a Shuttle moving specialist, but are charging Oakland For a MOONTRIP…
For the $53,050,000.00, These “geniuses” promise us 94 Units, and a 47 car Garage… Wow, aren’t we Lucky.
When you add the $6,000,000.00 not used, we are at $59,050,000.00, for less than ½ what Marea Alta cost.
This transaction makes all of US in Oakland “DUMB”.
2) Misuse of Public Funds; In 2015 FY $557,000 from Neighborworks America was used to supplement their GPF.
In 2016 Fy the Unity Council appropriated $3,050,000.00 advance on the rents at Fruitvale Village for Seniors thru 2024,
Presenting funds are needed for Development. Only to use those funds to add into their GPF, “We will borrow against
Contstruction Loan on Fruitvale Village Phase 2, Pt 1.
This action adds $6,100,000.00 to cost of Fruitvale Village Phase 2, Pt 1.
They also used Funds that the San Francisco Foundation , June 2015, again another $3,000,000.00
In the GPF of the Unity Council. They come back requesting $2.5 in support for COLA & use of illegal buildings.
And personnel. This averages to a $200,000.00 Loss monthly.
The Books are a Joke. They have misused >$6,000,000 of funds for FTV 2. Will double cost of loan on Construction Bond.
3) What Happened to Oakland Lift. A $5,000,000.00 program to assist
New Home Buyers in Oakland. Up to $20k assistance. What happened to this program.
Who were the Families that were served in Oakland. Instead they took it on road, 14
Counties. Oakland was NOT served. The remaining $2,900,000 after Administrative fees
Was assigned to the Homeownership Group, Directed By Ms Powers, & Ms Patch. This IS an entity
Of the Unity Council NOT accounted for in the 2014~2015 Fy. There was no Accounting mad public for
The Fy ended Sept 30, 2014
