Anyone who cares about the Grove should attend the City’s Planning & Zoning Advisory Board meeting tonight (April 18th) at 6:30 p.m., at City Hall.
The board will be considering changes to Coconut Grove’s zoning code. City official are proposing a number of developer-friendly amendments that would allow for the continued destruction of our quiet, leafy streets with more giant white boxes and fewer trees. They also want to use the code to allow much greater housing densities within the village center and along the corridors like 27th Ave. and Grand Ave.
Don't we have enough people and traffic here already? And to make matters worse, they want to eliminate our Neighborhood Conservation District – a special protection just for single-family neighborhoods – and replace it with something that will promote growth throughout all of Coconut Grove.
Come out tonight and tell them “NO!” Enough is enough.
