Status of the "Hotel Lost Liberty" project This is a real project. To help the potential financial supporters understand where we our in the process a rough outline appears below. This will be revised as needed. Our ability to proceed can be improved with your financial support.
1. Ask the Town of Weare, N.H. what process must be followed to gain approvals to build a hotel.
2. Obtain plot maps and descriptions of the subject property.
3. Establish an escrow account to receive funds to support pre-approval work and funds to support post approval needs (construction and operating capital).
4. Establish a seperate legal entity to carry the project forward and receive the escrow funds.
5. Raise enough financing to support pre-approval work.
6. Create preliminary designs, gather information to support the economic viability of the project and find a company that built several successful hotels to oversee the project.
7. Make a formal presentation of our proposal to the Town of Weare.
8. If property is approved for seizure, and hotel is approved for construction, raise enough funding to build and operate the hotel.
9. Auction off the chance to drive the bulldozer.
10. Build it.
How you can participate (more fun, for real!): 1. Are you a powerful and famous radio talk show host?
The "Room-Fit-For-A-Host Prize" will go to that radio talk show host that causes his or her listeners to pony up the largest sum toward the hotel's construction cost. This will be accomplished by asking each investor which radio talk show host motivated him or her to invest. The honeymoon suite will be named after the winning radio talk show host and that host will be allowed to choose the books and decorations in the room (within our budget). Four runners-up will have regular hotel rooms named after them and also be allowed to choose the books, decorations and furniture in these rooms (within our budget). The radio talk show host that finishes last will have the bathroom adjoining the restaurant named after him or her.
Imagine if your favorite host wins! What decorations might be found in the "Rush Room"? Which books might appear in the "Larry Elder Room"? What creature comforts might be enjoyed in the Bill O'Reilly Room? Do we dare to think what the "Howard Stern Room" might look like? Who will win? How will they decorate? The world awaits with baited breath...and a new reality show is born!
This contest is open to all radio talk show hosts. We will announce which radio talk show hosts step into the ring as it happens...
2. What should we serve in the Just Deserts Cafe* (the hotel restaurant)?
We have received some creative suggestions: Chicken Seizure Salad, Souter Soup, Goose and Gander Sautee. And for dessert Logan's original item...Crow Pie. But we need more to complete our menu. Send your ideas to "email@example.com". Include the name of your menu suggestion in the subject line.
*Name changed to clarify what we are really serving.
Let me know when you're up and running. It's not too far from Londonderry to Weare.... I'll bet you could have a raffle for first night boarders.
Put me down for a couple of tickets.
There's no way in hell the Selectmen would approve building a hotel in an area zone residential. The idiot that's spearheading this "idea" should take a trip to New Hampshire to assess other posibilities such as a B & B. The dude all show.
I'm not running the show. I'm just passing the word to anyone who maybe interested. Sorry for the misunderstanding.
Chill out and let Logan run... it will be fun to see how far this goes..
Great idea! Moveon it! Hee Hee
Add some meeting/banquet space and I'll book conventions....how about the Association of Realtors? Maybe a faith based convention? National Assn. of Crow Eaters? There is an "association" for everything! Great revenue!
I wonder, if the project actually goes through, if it would be possible to invest in it. ;)
Here's the link to the county website http://home.att.net/~family-history/NH-Hillsborough_Co.htm
Why not do things in a manner that achieves the goal of removing Souter from his homestead. Apparently his (Logan) goal is only to promote himself and get that television show he wants.
There must be Real Estate people who would love to start with 1 - 4. Need to hear from Clements ASAP.
I have a recipe for "ComeUppance Pudding"
I know I would surely be interested as would every one I know!
Hmmmmmmmmmm......The Eminent Resort.....Domain Suites......:)
Lost Liberty Hotel Ping List ping...
What about a Theme Park?
Maybe we could help out Africa at the same time, by hiring Robert Mugabe as a consultant.
Zoning can be changed, however it would probably be difficult. A B&B is a good idea, but it would be hard to argue that it would bring significantly more tax revenue to the town. Unless of course the Selectmen are already motivated to go along with the project. Unlikely since local governments are the biggest beneficiaries, at least for now, of this unconstitutional "taking".
My only suggestion is to name the hotel "Lost Liberty Lodge". It rolls off the tongue better.
I also like the idea of the guest bulldozer. I could see putting up some things on e-Bay to get some real bidding going. Maybe like when the president signs a bill with 50 different pens, you could sell 50 different swipes at the Judge's house.
