Round 1 Victory

25 Jul

On July 25th, City of Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado and his administration decided to follow the recommendations of the planning and zoning board and will be withdrawing the item; the amendment to the Midtown District regulations proposed as item PZ-12 on the Miami City Commission Agenda of Thursday, July 26, 2012.

Below is the official email from Francisco J. Garcia, Director Planning and Zoning Department, City of Miami:

It states:

Honorable Mayor and Commissioners:

The amendment to the Midtown District regulations proposed as item PZ-12 on the Miami City Commission Agenda of Thursday, July 26, 2012 will be withdrawn by the City of Miami administration.

In considering the item, the Planning, Zoning and Appeals Board in their unanimous recommendation of denial expressed discomfort in considering this proposal in the abstract.  This feedback was also received previously at the various public meetings held regarding this item and had become an item of prevailing concern.

It has been our intent with the amendment proposed as PZ-12 to strengthen the City’s position to achieve the best development proposals for the remaining parcels in Midtown.  To that end, we sought to expand the options available so as to examine all and select the best. The feedback received thus far indicates a marked preference to examine all possibilities available presently, and only if those prove insufficient or problematic consider others as appropriate.  We will gladly endeavor to this and thus we will be withdrawing this item.

Submitted respectfully,

Francisco
