Grove Playhouse needs two theaters

After reviewing the county’s plan and consulting with residents, experts, and various stakeholders, I have determined that the current rehabilitation plan for the Coconut Grove Playhouse is insufficient to the task of restoring it. For that reason, I held Sunshine meetings with Chairman Esteban Bovo, the last of which took place Dec. 13, and included the lieutenant governor and representatives of Miami Commissioner Ken Russell. In the meeting, I presented a resolution that calls for two theaters: a small theater for academic uses, presumably under the tutelage of Florida International University, and a larger theater complies fully with the desire of preservationists, as delineated in the Dec. 13 oped by Richard Heisenbottle.

In response to the Dec. 12 letter criticizing the upcoming plans for the Coconut Grove Playhouse, “Critiquing the plan for Grove Playhouse,” the writer has based his opinion on economics, not the importance of theater, which he claims is an afterthought.

Cuba and the United Nations Universal Human Rights Declaration

Although many Americans have forgotten or are unaware of the 69th anniversary today of the signing of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, it has special meaning to me; my father, Guy Pérez-Cisneros y Bonnel, and Ernesto Díhigo were the delegates from the Republic of Cuba, which for a small country, played an importunate role in launching and crafting the declaration.

Traffic solutions

The culture in Miami Lakes no longer is built around focusing on the next week, or month, or election cycle. We’re focusing on future generations. It’s a big-picture approach, and part of that change is adjusting the way we think about our town’s mobility. How do our residents go to work, drop off kids at school, pick up groceries, and do everyday activities without getting stuck in traffic?

Traffic circle

I have been watching the construction of the traffic circle at South Miami Avenue and Southwest Sixth Street from my home window across the river. It is very dangerously constructed.

Giving Thanks

On Thanksgiving Day, what I’m thankful for may not be the traditional things such as a home to live in and food to eat, but I know that it is important to me.

Tax bill’s effect on higher education

The recently passed House bill taxes the value of tuition discounts offered by colleges and universities to the spouses and children of their employees. The bill places an excise tax on private college endowments of $250,000 per student. Beyond the bill, student loan rates are increasing and grants decreasing.

Haitian TPS

Sen. Marco Rubio did a great job in his Nov. 19 op-ed, “Extend TPS for Haitians in the United States.” I totally agree that now is not the time to burden Haiti with anything else.
