Despite our efforts at the County Commissioners meeting in March which resulted in Mayor Gimenez and Commissioner Moss requesting Amendment 1 Funds to protect the Richmond Pine Rocklands. It would seem that the Miami Wilds project may still be moving ahead. In a Miami Today article Theme park sets sights on Coast Guard land Miami Wilds and the county are looking for ways to relocate the Coast Guard from the land they want to develop.
Luckily for us newly elected congressman Carlos Curbelo sits on the Subcommittee that oversees the Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation. So we need everyone to email Congressman Curbelo and tell him how important this issue is to his Constituents. That we don't want a theme park if it costs us our beautiful natural surroundings. Tell him to advice the coast guard to reject any offer and to tell 20th Century Fox to find an alternative site for their theme park. Click the button for a pre-written email you can send him. You can call, write or tweet to him as well - (202) 225-2778
