The next community meeting is for Keys Landing and is to be held at the Miami Management Office on September 18th located at 1541 S.E. 12th Avenue, Suite #37, Homestead - Will the Council member come to the meeting and newly elected Daniella Levine Cava? Wayne inexplicably has a pliant, willing City Council (shame on them). The Fairways residents (69 homeowners) are attempting to organize and pressure the city council. Can't have a neighborhood called the FAIRWAYS without a golf course can you?
|He might be goofy looking but Wayne Rosen sure spreads his millions around to Lynda Bell (at least 30 or 40 thousand wasted) and now the Rick Scott fundraiser coming up. Do not succumb to this guy Daniella, watch him like a hawk. I first wrote about him in 2006.|
|Keys Gate Community Association|
It is no mistake that Rosen is hovering in the wings looking for assistance from the Keys Gate master association. The developer of Keys Gate, Michael Latterner has NEVER turned over the individual Keys Gate communities to self-rule; he indirectly maintains control of the master association through his minions. Michael dropped his name off the incorporation papers for the Keys Gate Association for some unknown reason last year, probably due to his illness.
Rosen does not need to purchase that developed golf course for houses when his buddy, Michael Latterner and his Keys Gate Realty Broker daughter, Paige Latterner, know exactly the location of every undeveloped acre of residential land within the Keys Gate development boundaries.

Additionally, there are rumors of 900 to 1900 homes (depending on DRI manipultation) which would overwhelm numerous community roads that already are gridlocked for blocks on school days. Of course, none of this is committed to on paper, so residents are getting information second handed from the individual community association “delegates” which regularly get pissed on by the master association.
Wayne Rosen is seeking to purchase the golf course and club house from an Indiana Corporation which has no managers or principals listed in Indiana or in the Florida Corporation filings in spite of being told to file the paperwork correctly. It is notable that Michael Latterner owns the undeveloped “hole in the doughnut” lands which lie inside and around the existing greens. Rosen could develop those lands into golf course homes while making the course a South Florida gem.
One has to assume that Rosen is seeking to control the Keys Gate property while being business partners with Latterner in various active corporations: DOUG, LLC.; KROME G I, LLC; COUP, LLC; RAINTREE DEVELOPMENT OF BROWARD, LLC; REVERTER HOLDINGS, LLC; OCTAGONAL HOLDINGS GROUP, INC. and MD HOLDINGS LXIX, LLC. -- Rosen and Latterner were also manager/partners in eight defunct corporations.
|Land surrounding golf course here is owned by Latterner.|
Setting aside the fact that Rosen and Michael Latterner are not listed directors in the KEYS GATE COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION, INC., we have to keep in mind that realtor Kim Green (who works for Paige Latterner and whose corporation address is her place of work), Patrick Gleber and Clifford Lincoln most likely have the ultimate control of the two community owned parcels which are congruent to the club house. The other people who attend KGCA meetings are individual community association representatives who are advisory in nature; they take suggestions to the Keys Gate master association, but do not really control much of what happens.
Gleber has been sent out to coax the community association delegates to go along with the plan to sell to Rosen. He brings questions to private meetings like “how much would you pay monthly for an updated facility” along with the hints of more houses if Rosen does not purchase the property in October. Gelber also offers the insinuation that the residents could lose control of having input on the project if Rosen doesn’t purchase the land. (Like the residents have any control?)
|Houses Surrounding Golf Course 1. Where will their view go?|
Keys Gate communities already pay association fees to the Keys Gate Community Association for the zealous Miami Management people to keep security guards, swale grass cut and the tennis/racket ball facilities available. So, what are the residents going to do? Do we pay additional fees to Rosen for facilities that we already control? Does the community drop control of existing parcels?
I would love to have a nice restaurant and wonderful golf course. I do not golf, but the asset would be wonderful for other residents and visitors in South Dade who do. Right now, Homestead does not have a golf/banquet facility worthy of patrons of the race track and lovely weddings. I would use the restaurant and a nice bar, but as a retiree on a fixed income, I can’t afford to pay a membership fee for the honor of eating there. It is regrettable that the Keys Gate communities stand to lose access to existing community common areas, if that is the plan.
The property owners do not really get an actual ballot to express their opinion. In the communities like The Shores and the harder hit ones on the golf course with Chinese drywall, where rentals are the rule and not the exception, I would guess that most property owners are uninformed about the golf course issue.
Get the real story. The next community meeting is for Keys Landing and is to be held at the Miami Management Office on September 18th located at 1541 S.E. 12th Avenue, Suite #37, Homestead, FL 33034.
You must go if you live in Homestead. You need to hear the details. It affects the usage of the schools, city roads, police and fire services; it stands to have regional impact. This is a Homestead issue: it goes before the council depending on what Rosen decides to do with the property.
Wayne Rosen’s Bio
TRML KEYS GATE LLC owner of golf course. The state papers are not filled in correctly.
- Some of the attendees who are familiar with the real estate business reiterated that if the golf course is not retained, the property values of every house in Keys Gate will be dramatically reduced, especially those homes south of Palm Drive....Tim Craig
This is the owner of the golf course....appears to do boats too. Something is fishy here.
