This month the City of Miami Commission will consider for approval the controversial Virginia Key Master Plan. TONIGHT IS THE PLANNING ADVISORY BOARD MEETING!!
The proposed plan includes: at least 11 parking garages, a shopping center, a corporate retreat/conference center, overnight lodging, a second new marina in the Marine Stadium Lagoon, and a massive, fully lighted sports complex, including a football and track and field stadium with grandstand on the landfill site between the Bill Sadowski Critical Wildlife area and sea turtle nesting beaches.
"Friends of Virginia Key" and many civic and environmental groups and interested citizens have always urged a “less is more” approach to Virginia Key that keeps it green, preserves waterfront access and vistas and protects the existingwildlife refuges and other natural areas.
