Development Halted on Tract of Pine Rockland in South Dade

Tracks:


On Monday, November 24’s show, Al Sunshine stopped by to talk about the latest developments regarding one of the last tracts of undeveloped pine rockland in Miami-Dade County. Mega-retailer Walmart has announced plans to work with a developer to create a megastore on Coral Reef Drive adjacent to Zoo Miami. However, the land is an environmentally sensitive area, containing species not found elsewhere. All development plans have been put on hold pending a full environmental review by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and other environmental protection agencies. Miami-Dade County officials have also announced that they will not issue any further permits until these environmental reviews have taken place and federal clearance has been secured.
