COMMUNITY ANNOUNCEMENTS

New- Palmetto Bay Farmers Market

Sundays, from 8:30 -2:30. A new farmer's market has opened at Coral Reef Park. Visit the market for local produce, food and locally made products. The park is located at 7895 SW 152nd Street. Visit the Facebook event page for more information.

New Zoning and Site Plan Proposal

The owners of 18.57 acres of property on 216th Street between 92nd place and SW 89th place in Lakes by the Bay (Vista Del Lago) have submitted a new site plan. It appears they are once again requesting a change in zoning. Included in the site plan is a comparison chart of what they currently are zoned for (left) and what they want (right). A quick summary is that they want 183 housing units and only 15,600 square feet of commercial/retail space. In our opinion, this property is a perfect location for stores, restaurants and small businesses. According to the Town Clerks office, lobbyists for this development include:

  • Jose Castillo (A consultant on Mayor Bell's and Sue Loyzelle's Campaigns).
  • Juan Mayol (Gave $1,000.00 to Mayor Bell's campaign)
  • Hugo Arza (Arza Consulting gave $250.00 to Mayor Bell's campaign)
  • Bruce Grundt
  • Angel Rodriguez
  • Alejandro Arias

A full list of lobbyists registered in Cutler Bay can be found here.
