Several days ago I was the surprised recipient of the civic remedy made possible by the Miami city commissioners operating in their full capacity as mediators in a highly charged planning environment.
Thank you, Chairman Keon Hardemon, and Commissioners Frank Carollo, Wifredo Gort, Francis Suarez and Ken Russell for ensuring that a band of District 3 neighbors were able to remain on equal footing with the proud display of a high-powered law firm. Historically, the owners of single-family homes in our area have been the undeserving recipients of architectural behemoths as new neighbors.
As a homeowner who found himself in the cross hairs of a major proposed commercial development, I was anxious over my vulnerability to the determinations of the developer. Our commissioner’s smooth and unrelenting implementation of the terms of Miami 21 created a context in which a representative planning process actually occurred.
Kudos for a job well done under difficult circumstances.
