Coconut Grove project not welcome


Are we going to let the city of Miami politicians bilk the community again by siding with developers using public waterfront land for private, commercial purposes? Residents will vote on the future of seven acres in Coconut Grove, where Scotty’s Landing, Grove Key Marina, Shake-a-Leg, and Chart House have been successfully serving the public for decades. Never mind the historical value of the property. Now the Banana Republicans want to hand over one of the last remaining waterfront properties the city controls to developers who are simply going to get even more rich with an unwanted monstrosity.

If they’re so keen on this development, why don’t they shift the project south a few hundred yards to City Hall?

    As LeBron leaves, keep it classy Miami

    Alright, so James is leaving. We will survive, really. We will miss him for sure.

  • Thanks, LeBron

    Downtown Miami’s resurgence was well under way before The Big 3 arrived, gained momentum alongside four consecutive championship runs and won’t be slowing down anytime soon.

  • Missing him LeBron

    Although devastated by his decision to leave us, I am immensely grateful to LeBron James for what he gave us: the best four years the Miami sports scene has ever experienced.
