The Line For Shakes at "Robert is Here", Population Overload. By Geniusofdespair



The line was the longest I ever saw for Shakes at Robert is Here. Once you ordered there were almost 70 shakes in front of you that had to be prepared.

This is way out in Florida City. I think that South Florida is reaching a saturation point. If the mosquito's don't get some the tourists, I will never be able to have a shake again. An hour is just too long to wait.

Seriously, we are starting a housing boom again when even a fruit stand can't handle the population.  This is a symptom of a greater problem no one wants to talk about in Little Manhattan (Miami). This fruit stand is our farming district (at least an hour from the Broward County line without traffic) or it is supposed to be our Farming district. We are eating away at it. How are you going to keep viable farming with all these people?

Shake, shake, shake Senora, the song says "Jump in de line."

 NOTE TO COUNTY COMMISSIONER DENNIS MOSS:

YOU ARE TOO LATE Dennis Moss, Gulfstream Park is building a major water theme park. They beat you to it. Now you can forgo that sensitive land you want to build your theme park on.
Water Theme Park in construction at Hallandale Beach's Casino, Gulfstream Park. The centerpiece of the park in an 11 story high Pegasus. Gulfstream park has gambling and horse racing too and a shit-load of shops. What can you offer in your District, Commissioner Moss? Build it and they WON'T come.

The $30 Million dollar Pegasus is right on US 1, not even a 1/4 mile from the Miami Dade County line.

FYI......On Friday morning my wife and I ordered fresh fruit shakes (strawberry & pineapple, respectively) at "Knaus Berry Farms" just north of "Robert Is Here", and it was delicious as ever.... Doesn't solve overpopulation, but my wait was only 2-3 minutes!

PS we live in far North Miami-Dade (Miami Gardens) !

So do you suggest we should spray people instead of mosquitoes?

People please. It's only vanilla ice cream some frozen strawberries, which were not grown in South Dade. Get over it. I hope all those people in line also visited Everglades National Park down the road. I also hope that when it comes to holding the urban boundary line or protecting our water supply, those same people in line are furiously calling and writing their elected officials. lol.

GENIUS, DON'T DESPAIR. THE GOAL IS TO ADDRESS THE ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERNS AND STILL CREATE WHAT IS PROJECTED TO BE OVER 8,000 CONSTRUCTION JOBS AND OVER 2,700 PERMANENT JOBS, NOT TO MENTION THE SPINOFF JOBS CREATED WITH NEW HOTELS AND RESTAURANTS THAT THE MIAMI WILDS PROJECT WOULD PROVIDE. BY THE WAY, THANKS FOR STOPPING BY ROBERTS IS HERE AND IF YOU GET A CHANCE, CHECK OUT KNAUSS BERRY FARM.

Yes but do you have a giant Pegasus? You do need one of those.

Spray the tourists? Now there is a thought. With what?

Dennis Moss you still do not get the concerns of that we all have regarding our community when it comes to our environment and making sure a balance is maintained on all of us. The traffic which is gridlock on any given day which includes Richmond Heights, Deerwood and all the residents West of 152 Street.
Now that you are term limited you are now a big proponent of JOBS!
You at one time was a positive person for the environment.
Therefore, I ask the question what is in this for you?

Comm. Moss you seem to be deaf to the concerns of the residents in your district. We can barely travel through that area now - BEFORE you allow a Walmart and apartments and/or a theme park. The construction jobs are temporary and the theme park/hotel and especially the Walmart jobs are minimum wage or just above. That's NOT the kind of economic development we need, and definitely not in an already gridlocked neighborhood. You want a positive legacy? Scrap these plans and preserve the natural areas and what quality of life still remains in the area.

Are you wanting spaying of tourists or spraying? I think we should spay them.

The most poverty driven neighborhoods in South Dade ain't going to a water park unless it's free.

For every retail and restaurant sale at Gulfstream Park there is a District Improvement Fee of .05%. The money spent there, is used there to support the financiing of infrastructure.

The direction Miami-Dade is headed today, all of our project costs are deferred as property taxes that hit us in the 2020's.

Just imagine the tourists who are experiencing Miami for the first time.

If they rent a car, the parking lot fees, meters, and Sunpass tolls mount up. If they try to take public transportation, they are dead-ended in areas that are not geared for tourists (except Dadeland Mall for shopping.)

Imagine if they take a taxi from Miami Beach to Robert is Here, Coral Castle, Schnebly, - that should cost them, um, way over $100+ for their strawberry shake and Redland Riot experience?

Boomers Amusement Park, in a great location directly off of I-95 at Stirling Road, will be closing as it just sold the land to developers. Profits from these types of businesses is fleeting.

The Boomers property is in somewhat of an industrial area with very little access. I'm not sure exactly what some of these so-called developers are thinking when they choose sites. Perhaps it will be successful, not sure. But the people who keep their boats at the nearby marinas and boat barns are going to be some pissed off with the increase in traffic.

What this county government needs to be thinking about is Miami Dade to be a 'NO GROWTH COUNTY'
We've reached saturation and grid-lock with worn-out infrastructure; can't our leaders
see and feel the need to make better what we already have in place. Developers go to Yucatan
