Protecting the City's green spaces
This is a concern for many regarding Peacock Park. What is to stop something else being added to the park for commercial use?
I would assume that most people would like parks to remain parks, you know, to remain green, not to be commercialized. While many projects in parks may benefit the city monitarily with the city collecting rents and fees, which offset taxes and other things, it seems that most people would rather have the park than the commercial venture.
There is a petition called "More Parks for Miami Now!" It asks the mayor to collect higher one-time impact fees from developers so that park acerage is aded to Miami, not taken away, as it is so many times.
You can see and sign and get more info on the petition here.
