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?
