Letters to the Editor

Disney passed on Miami?

In addition to the fact that the Disney Co. never considered Miami as a theme park destination, the Disney operation in Orlando covers 27,258 acres, which Miami never had to offer.

It is shameful that our commissioner invents stories to gain support for a terrible idea. The last vestige of environmentally sensitive land near Zoo Miami should not be up for grabs using gimmicks to rezone or the newest name re-classify.

Does Commissioner Dennis Moss understand that Orlando is part of Florida and pays their taxes to our state and we should all be proud of this attraction?

Let Miami develop naturally without destroying our quality of life and our environment; we are the gate keepers for our future generations.

Marie D. Valenti, South Miami
