Status report on Tree Watch appeal
The Historic Preservation Board (HEP) has made a decision regarding Plans #11-207 on SW 27th Avenue, regarding the two mahogany trees in front of the Shell gas station, shown here. These are the only two trees left that were part of the Phase One project during which 15 trees were removed without proper prior notification.
According to Alexander Adams, AICP City of Miami Planning and Zoning Department Preservation Officer, The HEP Board is currently in discussion with the Tree removal applicants (Miami-Dade County Public Works) to see which option they would like to take.
The applicant has two options: Revise the plans so as not to impact the trees or Submit plans to the Planning Department Preservation Section to be scheduled on the October 4 Preservation Board agenda. The application for HEPB can be found at http://www.historicpreservationmiami.com/ under COA tab, applications.
At this point the item is scheduled to be heard at the HEP Board's regular monthly meeting at the City Hall (3500 Pan American Drive) Tuesday, October 4, at about 3 pm. All concerned citizens are urged to show up to show their support for saving the trees.
Also on schedule is an earlier appeal we submitted regarding plans to remove trees along the US 1 medians. That plan is a project of City of Miami Public works and they have been given the same options as the County in their particular case.
