I recently read the story about FIU and their expansion plans in your newspaper. I was raised on Long Island in New York, and didn´t grow up with the Miami-Dade Youth Fair. But I comprehend people’s nostalgia about this family tradition.
However, I think it is important we analyze the true worth and use of the land it currently occupies. FIU’s expansion is a natural event, as the university continues to grow to serve our community.
Let’s find a win-win solution in which both the Fair and FIU are able to come to a consensus.
As a proud FIU alumnus, I urge others to show support for FIU.
