The fact that Parkland has such wealthy and well-connected owners and agents should give us pause. We reward those who can sell as many mortgages no matter the outcome. We shipped those mortgages off to ends of the earth and now we are dealing with an international crisis.
We are seeing the results of this process across the world. Bailouts come every day, we are above four trillion dollars. Entire neighborhoods in California, Florida, and Nevada sit empty.
Closer to home, we have a UDB line which has served our community well. It would be foolish to reward speculators with ANOTHER bailout (which is what allowing Parkland to be built would be, in my opinion).

From the article:
South Florida can not absorb thousands of new homes. Economically and environmentally it would be a disaster.
By the way, 7000 homes is NOT A neighborhood. It is a disaster.
I'm proud that I've been picked up by many Google searches! We are getting out the word!
I need your help! Let's win this!

We had a phony economy.
Building homes makes jobs! Selling homes makes jobs! An economy based on real estate was doomed to fail.
How much worse will it get? Someone needs to tell the phonies at Lennar that it's almost 2009 not 2005.
I talk to a number of educated people about Parkland and they almost all agree it couldn't possibly pass! They try to reassure me that the UDB is still sacred.
So it's a small group of us that meet at the Audubon house. We follow eyeonmiami.blogspot.com and show up at the community council meetings.
What is the possibility of this passing? Could the monstrosity known as Parkland actually pass?
Obviously, I'm terrified of the idea. From what I know of the big money behind Parkland, I think it's a possibility.
We need massive action! How DO WE REACH THOSE THAT ARE CONCERNED BUT COMPLACENT???

Anyone know the correct info for Domingo Castillo??
We need to let him know that we don't appreciate the way he hurried the citizens speaking against Parkland but extended the time for those speaking in favor of it. At least he didn't fall asleep I suppose.
