Respecting Coconut Grove
Here in Coconut Grove that evidence grows daily. Politicians and many Miamians have sadly recently voted to destroy yet more water front to make way for another Bayside type of area. Something I never thought would have passed. A few blocks from my house a historical beautiful home was destroyed in order to put not 2 or 3, but 5 homes in the small lot. Sadly, the trees marked for protection seem to disappear daily and the ground is covered quickly as to hide any evidence that a tree ever existed.
As neighbors we are upset but what can you do as the builder is connected to the city. Though this may be a lost cause, there are things we can all do. For instance, pay attention to what you buy, whom you vote for and how you live. Each of us make a huge impact on our planet and as a collective this impact is exponential.
So before you get into political arguments, really check out whom you are voting for and don’t take party alliances for granted. Also, don’t forget to take a look at your own footprint – with the holidays coming, it’s a good time to be cognizant. Lastly, on a personal note if you like concrete may I suggest another city besides the Grove?
