YOUR VOICE WAS HEARD!
Update from today’s Nov 16th 2020 City of Miami Commission Meeting
GREAT NEWS! Our neighborhood marina lives to see another day!
Miami Commissioners rejected the Mega Marina project proposals in a 3 to 2 vote.
We, the Marine Stadium Marina customers, sent dozens upon dozens of emails to the Commissioners in support of saving our neighborhood marina.
With this saga now behind us, we would like to ask the City of Miami to now refocus efforts and begin reinvesting in our existing marina.
After years of litigation and several commission meetings on the topic, Miami commissioners voted to reject all bids to redevelop our neighborhood marina and the surrounding area.
Commissioner Ken Russell expressed environmental responsibility concerns with Virginia Key LLC, the first palce mega maria bidder. Other Commissioners expressed these and similar concerns.
The comments stem from contractors working for the winning bidder’s principles that dumped over 30 million gallons of raw sewage into Biscayne Bay in the year 2000 and talk that the bidder should have been disqualified from the bid for failing to disclose its role in this major Biscayne Bay sewage spill.
