Making 2222 4th St N Public Info Even More Public

Guest post by the Hawthorne Hawkman

When I was at the hearing regarding the proposed demolition of 2222 4th St N last week, I got my hands on some public documents about Mahmood Khan's property at 2222 4th St N (click here for the Johnny Northside pdf site and these documents). I don't have time to go through and read them line by line just yet.

I do, however, want to point out a thing or two. He has put in USED carpeting and USED cabinets. He has two different kinds of siding and windows, which DO NOT look right. Khan claims the work is 90% complete, but as CM Barb Johnson so eloquently put it to the rest of the committee: "If this property is only going to get 10% better, I guarantee none of you would want it in your ward."

And the restoration agreement states that Khan expects to put at least $115,000 into the repairs. If he's indeed put that much money into this property, I wonder where the $110,000 hidden treasure is.

(Do not click "Read More," but do send your public comments to CM Diane Hofstede.)

USED carpeting? I've never heard of anybody doing that except, like, FOR A TREE HOUSE.

I ripped some carpet out of some apartments a couple months back. Geez, I should have sold it all to Mahmood Khan and made some money on the side.
