It was disappointing to see that Kendall residents’ opinions were absent from the Oct. 18 article Coral Gables mayor, attorney talk with state pols about FPL lines. While I understand the concerns of the city of Coral Gables, it is distressing that their bottom line is: Not through our beautiful city, put these transmission lines in Kendall.
As a resident of Kendall, I know firsthand the concerns of my neighbors and constituents and am committed to ensure that our voices are heard. Looking at the two plans, it is evident that it makes much more sense to run these lines through a business corridor as proposed by FPL and not through our residential neighborhoods.
Gables Mayor Jim Cason’s assertion that the alternate corridor is, “the least-worse option,” isn’t shared by my constituents. I’m concerned that a change is being proposed in the interest of a select few, regardless of the effect on the many.
