Don’t move boats in Grove

 

We have heard from those that want more green space and those who have voiced their concern on a parking structure and 40,000 square feet of restaurant and retail space in Coconut Grove. However, we haven’t heard anything from the boating community. I’ve kept a boat at Grove Key Marina since 1977 and am concerned about the plans that will move those 300-plus boats to Grove Harbour, which also has more than 300 boats.

What kind of wait time will boaters encounter when they want their boats lowered or returned to the racks? Also, will there be free parking assigned to the marina users or will we be competing for spaces with the customers of the retail space? Go ahead and knock down the exhibition center, but don’t get rid of all the free surface parking that should be for marina users.

Come on, boaters. Let’s fight this and vote No in November.
