No detox center

Why is Miami Beach government going to allow a drug detox center in North Beach?

Ninety-nine percent of those who live, work and send their children to several schools within the vicinity of this proposed center do not want it in their community. There already are statistics from a homeless shelter on 78th Street and Harding Avenue showing more than 50 calls to police and fire each year. This, with only eight beds.

Something smells fishy here. It seems Normandy Isle and North Beach always gets what no other community in Miami Beach wants.

Residents should contact their planning board members who are meeting at 4 p.m. on July 26, to vote on this matter. Say No to this drug detox center.
