Yes I do report rumors and truth...
Codina Partners in February hired a shitload of lobbyists. Now what is he up to?
Lennar's Mega-Development Parkland, (on the wrong side of the Urban Development Boundary) a DRI from 11/2005 -- according to the South Florida Regional Planning Council is still alive. Jeff Bercow is no longer lobbying for them according to the lobbyist list. Bercow is lobbying for Panattoni Development Company's approval for Westview Property. According to the bizjournals.com, Westview is seeking $9.5 Million in taxpayer funds. That is OUR funds.
Parkland might be coming back during the May CDMP cycle although I don't see a lobbyist for it yet. It is time. Lennar has been itching to get it going according to a Lennar insider. Yes, I know developers.
Rebeca Sosa said she is NOT running for County Mayor. Raquel Regalado is stuck on the fence on the Mayoral run.
Lynda Bell gets some retribution -- after her chain link fence fiasco, that partly did her in -- from Javier Souto, who hates chain link fences. He says they cheapen neighborhoods. This is on the Agenda today:

Pine Rockland: This is on the Agenda today -- I heard 40 people are there to speak but it is getting deferred for a second time (wear the people down, that is what they do, make everyone go all the way downtown...for nothing). I heard he wasn't even at the Commission, will have to turn on the TV to see if this is a rumor:

My eyes are so itchy I could scream. Should I change our logo to this? I think so, to keep an Eye on Miami it is pretty painful. I can see again and everything is fine except for the damn itching. Thank you all for your good wishes. I am very cranky.
