Downtown Eugene

Wednesday, September 19, 2007

Opportunity to speak your mind

At the last minute, the Mayor scheduled a public forum for tonight:

"Community Forum on West Broadway Advisory Committee (WBAC) Recommendations"
Wednesday, September 19 - 5:30 p.m.
City Hall, 777 Pearl Street, Council Chamber

The result of the "WBAC" meetings, were milquetoast recommendations, which hold the developer to no public standard whatsoever. Their recommendations certainly don't save the Tango Center, or anything else along West Broadway. The relocation compensation will not save us, or our affordable commercial neighborhood.

This was all expected. The WBAC was formed for PR purposes, and stacked with Urban Renewal boosters. If the KWG Urban Renewal spending Measure passes this November, we're doomed.

The press will be at tonight's meeting, so you could go and make your opinion heard, if you're concerned about any of these things:

1. Deceptive PR exercises to give the impression that the City responds to citizen input.
2. $40 million in City subsidies to develop expensive, upscale shopping malls
3. The destruction of an affordable commercial district
4. The destruction of a downtown district that is revitalizing already
5. The destruction of historic buildings (The Public Market and Bristow buildings) continuing the wasteful legacy of Urban Renewal.
6. The huge negative impact Urban Renewal districts in Oregon have on funding for Schools and Social Services.
7. The lack of an empowered, democratic planning process.
8. The lack of clarity, transparency and democracy in City spending.

I personally have found the City planning staff, supported by the Council majority and City staff management, to be very disrespectful of, and deceptive towards, local small business and non-profit activity. The planners are very indoctrinated -- they believe that creating high-rent districts is the best way to spend public money. Do you disagree? Please tell them so, publicly, so Eugene's citizens begin to realize that Urban Renewal is NOT a public-interest activity.

Here are the very abstract "recommendations" of the WBAC:

And here's the far more informative minority report, by one committee member:

Urban Renewal is a drain on all of us -- on our schools, our small businesses, our social services, and our wallets. Let's do what we can to stop this disaster!

一、鋼琴酒吧: 【酒店小姐】【酒店公關】工作服務內容除一般的桌服外就是喝酒聊天 但這種店型酒會喝的比較多一點 因為這種店型的主要消費就是酒錢酒店小姐酒店公關酒店上班到底都在做麼?所以希望小姐可以有銷酒的功能 因為這種類型屬較單純的 客人來這消費也主要是白領階級較多 客層很單純!!小姐著自己的便服有分午晚場~公檯的方式 日薪大概2000~4000不等
二、禮服店:是著禮服 班別午晚場 有幾家店是有一套固定的禮服 或要妳要自備一件!價位大概在1500~3000不等!這種店型是要看檯的 也就是會有看檯的壓力!所以這樣店型的小姐建議外型上要比較打扮亮麗一點 比較有上檯的機會!
三、便服店:小姐素質都比較高質感 外型上大部分都是黑長直髮高瘦型的優質小姐 著便服 當然有很多人都說便服店都會有拼框的壓力...當然 一樣如同上所說 妳只要比別人用心 也不會有賺不到錢的壓力了!!上班的時間是21:00~03:00。所以不要覺得好像要來這行上班一定要多漂亮或是身材要多好基本上~只要你不胖(有點肉也沒關係)經過打扮後都是可以上班很順利的
1.只要不過胖都可以試試 高矮不重要 重要是身材比例(如身高減110左右 是標準身材)
2.酒量問題可以克服 (如閃酒 吐酒 擋酒和耍賴等很多方法)
3.建議妳來台北試試 畢竟是首善之區 消費能力較強 比較有機會賺到錢 不會坐冷板凳做白工
4.建議妳去看看台北的禮服店 不用治裝費 不脫不秀
5.傾聽也是好手挽 若妳能讓客人打開話夾子更好 男人來消費就是暫時想找到自己的舞台 其他手挽再慢慢學習
