Miami: Park Proposed for Overtown
Post on April 17, 2015 by The Victoria Law Group 0 Comments
For a modest $200,000 in community redevelopment money, the city of Miami could have a financially self-supporting park in the heart of one of its urban neighborhoods with a musical bandstand, green fields, perhaps even a skateboard park and a concession stand.
Miami commissioners, acting as redevelopment agency members, could decide Monday the fate of a planned temporary park in a long-neglected section of Overtown.
And though the five-acre property that abuts the Metro-rail Station where the old Miami Arena once stood is privately owned -by Palm Beach developer Glenn Straub- Miami wouldn’t even have to pay rent.
