New Publix Approved For Old Cutler Road
The town council last night approved the site plan for a new shopping center on Old Cutler Road and Marlin Road (potato field). The previous site plan had been rejected in February when it did not conform with the standards required in our town's Land Development Regulation.
Town planner Julian Perez' refusal to recommend the previous plan along with Mayor MacDougall and council members Bell and Mixon' steadfast refusal to approve the previous plan forced the hand of the developers to come back with a much improved proposal. Council members Sochin and Loyzelle had voted for the initial substandard plan.
Mentoring Volunteers Needed
Hope for Miami is looking for volunteers age 18 and older to mentor middle school students at Cutler Ridge Middle and nearby schools. Volunteers will receive training and must pass a background check. For more information about the organization, visit hopeformiami.org. If you would like to become a mentor, please contact email@example.com.
Shoppes of Cutler Bay (Publix)
A new application and site plan has been submitted to the town to develop a new shopping center on Old Cutler Road and Marlin Road (potato field). Important changes to the site plan included: the addition of more foliage, a trellised walkway, natural storm water runoff areas, removal of drive-throughs in front buildings, turf block parking areas, and landscaping between parking rows. The applicant has also agreed to apply for “Green Globe” certification.
These improvements, and the agreement to build “green” are a direct result of Mayor MacDougall, Bell and Mixon's steadfast refusal to approve a plan that was not in keeping with our town's vision. Councilmembers Sochin and Loyzelle had voted for the initial plan that did not include these new improvements. View the new site plans here. You can also find out more about Green Globe Certification.
