This video is a panic, it mentions every issue that the County Commission would use against environmental arguments and it talks about jobs, jobs, jobs. Pipe Dream???
The rumor is 1000 acres of Manny Diaz Tree farm property near Homestead is slated for this indoor theme park. Emerald City has a Facebook Page. They are using EDSA a local planning firm so I think this is more than a rumor. They say "TROPICAL". Florida City is also trying to annex 812 acres "Parcel H".
I THINK I HAVE UNRAVELED WHAT IS GOING ON --
In their quest for investors they wrote:
EB-5 Capital Investment Thresholds. The standard capital investment requirement for an EB-5 investor is approximately $800,000. The capital investment requirement for an EB-5 investor in a Targeted Employment Area (TEA) which is either in a high unemployment area, (calculated as an area with an unemployment rate that is at least 150% of the national average), or a Rural Area (RA). Congress has reserved 3,000 of the 10,000 EB-5 visas for EB-5 investors who invest in TEAs, which the area in the Cities of Homestead and Florida City currently qualify for.So now you know the location!!!
