South Florida Regional Council July 6th About 11:00 am. By Geniusofdespair

South Florida Regional (they dropped the word Planning from their name) Council meets July 6th (about 11). They took planning out of the name officially on July 1st.

Interesting discussion item:

Americas' Dream Mall

Program Report and Activities that should interest us all:

Thomas M. Teets
 A. Everglades Restoration Speaker Thomas M. Teets - office of Everglades Policy and coordination for the South Florida Water Management District.
B. Amendment 1 - (land buying funds we all voted for) Speaker Eric Draper - Audubon of Florida.

Agenda items of Interest to me

County Commissioners Daniella Levine Cava and Xavier Suarez are Miami Dade Appointees on the Council.

Be there if you can 3440 Hollywood Blvd. Suite 140. It starts at 10:30 but I don't see them getting to the good items till at least an hour later. This is the only State of Florida entity down here. It does a regional review of projects (3 counties participate). There has to be some public comment time although it was not on the agenda. The public hardly ever goes to this monthly meeting. If you want to ask about time call Phone 954-985-4416. I heard the whole meeting is only about two hours.

I love how the Republicans at the instigation of ALEC are using "name changes" of state and local agencies to promote the elimination of government "excess". Disgusting.

I spoke and said we the voters were betrayed on amendment 1 and that the members of the SFRC should be standing up for their constituents.
