United, Saviour’s Stands – Divided It Will Now Fall

Looks like Bob Holden, Christina Wilkinson, Tony Nuziato and special guest appearances by Tony Avella have achieved what they wanted. Yesterday, Maspeth Development, LLC, withdrew their application for a zoning change for the St. Saviour's property.

Queens Crap posted the following: “What this means for the sacred site is unclear. But it appears the 70+ housing units that Councilman Dennis Gallagher had lobbied for will not be built. Stay tuned.”

The Patriots have found out that Crappy is partially right. It is true that 70+ housing units will not be built; however, something will be built. Do you know what Bob, Christina and the two Tonys won for our community?

Maspeth Development is entertaining two bids because Holden and his merry band of miserable misfits refused to come to the table with viable options. Their all or nothing approach to civic involvement has won our community one of the following:

Behind Door Number 1 – Maspeth could win a Storage facility! Not only a storage facility, but a 24 hour a day storage facility. STOP and STOR! Yes folks, you will be delighted to see row upon rows of luxury sheds utilized by transient people who will rent these glorified garages to store their stuff. Great job Bob!

Behind Door Number 2 – Maspeth could win a recycling facility! Maspeth will be home to millions of tons of recyclable glass, plastics and paper. Trucks will be coming in and out during all hours of the day to drop off their precious cargo for processing. Way to Go Juniper Park Civic Association!

The developer has decided to forget the zoning change and has decided to build “as of right”. And that means a facility that falls under the manufacturing description. Nice job Mr. Holden.

This is what happens when the community allows a small band of narrow-minded non-compromising misfits to speak for the entire community. Instead of getting a reasonable development with new housing that would have included a component for the preservation of the church; we get a large recycling plant or a massive storage facility!

Furthermore, please don’t let Bob Holden, the JPCA Executioner Board or Avella lead you to believe that there is still a chance to save the church because ultimately they are the ones who have sealed its fate. The developer intends to build “as of right” as is their legal right to do so and long gone are the days for any community involvement or input. No longer can the Mayor, Gallagher, Crowley, Weiner, NYC Parks Department nor President Bush intervene on our behalf.

Once again, Holden’s tactics have backfired and the ones who will suffer are the poor people of our community. So when you drive by the Recycling plant or the storage facility make sure you thank Robert Holden, Christina Wilkinson, Tony Nuziato and Tony Avella for their complicity in this debacle.

“The narrow-minded who undertake any work will never be satisfied. They cannot understand the actions of those who are large hearted and broad-minded.”

Blame the Mayor he could have eaisly resolved this. I think this was the Mayor's FU to Holden and the Crazies at the JPCA.

Holde will somehow come up with a Story on how this is a victory!

Just like his support of Walgreens, he is not a stable man.

I thought we all stood united on fighting overdevelpment! It seems that you just want to go after Holden and the JPCA. I don't know where you get your numbered options from. I think you are just guessing.

How would you like some 70+ housing units built around your home?

What an idiot you are spewing sour grapes.

Another huge and humilating loss for the JPCA flying monkeys, and exactly one year to the day after their NYS Supreme Court humilation. What can we count on for November 30, 2008? Holden's a glutton for punishment. Only this time the entire community loses.

Holden must go! Wilkinson must go! Kamperman must go! Doocey must go! Auntie Lu-rain must go!

How much more can our community stand of their idiocy?

Yet another instance of the JPCA executive board's intransagence, and their ultimate defeat for themselves and our neighborhood.

How much longer will we tolerate the JPCA's ineptitude?

The JPCA people are so hypocritcal. All along they preached how the church was sacred, part of the community's heritage, etc., but now they applaud a result that will lead to the church being leveled. They are trying to say that local residents would rather have an industrial building than houses. So for them, stopping houses getting built is more important than saving the church.

Poor M Lee has been brainwashed by Holden and the JPCA. It is true that housing will not be built on the site but now we are faced with the possibility of another manufacturing facilty in Maspeth.

I just read the Queens Crap and they are (in their lack of wisdom) claiming that the withdrawal of the application is a victory. The withdrawal of the re-zoning application means that instead of residential we get industrial!

Unleashed dogs, Walgreens, Arby's and the destruction of St Saviour's! The JPCA has done so much harm to our community!

Now the Church will be demolished, the land cleared and a recycling plat will come in place of nice homes.

Congrats to the JPCA you win again (Only in your own mind)!

From Wednesdays Daily News. The owner of the site said:

"The only reason why that church still has four walls is due to Councilman Gallagher," the owner said, adding that without residential development, the agreement to restore the church is now "off the table."

Enough said .... Good-Bye Church, hello industrial park.

Thanks Bob, Christina, Tony!!

As per Bob's own words reported in the The Crapper West:

"Regardless of the future of the property, the goal remains to save the church building and land, stressed both Holden and Avella. “St. Saviour’s is in jeopardy, even more so now,” said Holden. “He can knock it down tomorrow.”

Nice f#$%ing going Holden & Avella! Because of you two, we are losing our history.

The only good thing here is that (hopefully) that fat tramp Christina is eat herself into a coma.

Avella, do us all a favor - go back to Bayside AND STAY THERE - LOSER.
