The Royals have shut down the local media and tried for years to silence the citizens. Investigators have ignored the problem. I'm happy to see that Germantown's story will finally be told. Thank you to all the people who came together to get our story out. Hopefully this documentary will trigger the investigations Dean Massey has asked for repeatedly during his time in office.

The City of Germantown prepared this 355 page report dated May 2019.  They presented it in August 2019, after the original moratorium expired.  But if you just want to see how many apartments they now think we could build out by 2028

From Page 9
*Apartment  Type  A.   A  vertically  mixed-use,  multi-family  residential  building;  or  a  multi-family residential   building   proposed   as   a  component  of   a  comprehensive  mixed-use  development application.  These  developments, similar in nature to Thornwood, are designed to incorporate a mix  of  residential  and  commercial  uses.  Based  upon  a  higher  average  monthly  rent,  the  study projects that this product type would result in 2.7 GMSD students per 100 two or more bedroom units.  Type  A  apartments  typically  have  a  50/50  ratio,  split  evenly  between  studio  or  one bedroom units, and two bedroom units.   
*Apartment Type B.  A stand-alone, single-use, multi-family residential complex.  Similar in nature to  the  proposed  Watermark  and  Viridian  developments,  these  developments  are  garden  style apartment  complexes  that  typically  have  a  higher  percentage  of  multiple  bedroom  units  and  are not  proposed  as  a  component  of  a  comprehensive  mixed-use  development  application.    Based upon  the  average  monthly  rent,  the  study  projects  that  this  product  type  would  result  in  15.3 GMSD  students  per  100  two  or  more  bedroom  units.  Type  B  apartments  typically  have  a  40/60 ratio, 40% one bedroom and 60% two or more bedrooms units.   New Residential Development Based on the report’s aggressive residential build-out scenario of an added 3,642 dwelling units by 2028, new  residential  development  is  projected  to  add 569  resident  GMSD  students.  Of  these  added 569 resident students, 123  are  projected  to come  from  the included  2,141  new apartment  units  (see Table  2 below), 423  are  projected  to  come  from  1,202  new  single-family  homes,  and  the  balance  from  a  small number of condominium-style attached homes

And on another possibility of conflict of interest by the firm Watkins-Uiberall, that was brought to light in the 2018 race, reinforces our concerns that Watkins Uiberall is also the Campaign Address for the 3 City-backed candidates in our 2020 aldermen races.

Quote
Auditors are supposed to be neutral watchdogs, and federal standards for auditors require them to avoid any appearance of conflict of interest.

Leaders of Watkins Uiberall said the election commission work isn't an audit, but rather "an agreed upon procedures engagement."
