Meeting called regarding toxic park
Miami-Dade County has declared all homes within a quarter mile radius of the park to be contaminated, this is includes Coconut Grove and Coral Gables homes, which are across LeJeune Road.
The meeting is on Barbarossa Avenue, at the east end of the park.
The City of Miami has declared the park a "Brownfield Site," in order to receive state money and to remove liability for their "cleanup." This will reduce home values and of course it is unsafe.
The City is spending $1 million but not removing any of the contamination. According to neighbors, they are digging up contaminated soil and spreading it around the park. The gian mound in the center of the park is contaminated with arsenic and heavy metals. It should be disposed of in a lined landfill, the City is being cheap and trying to save money.
Neighbors are now demanding from the City of Miami:
1) remove any contamination that htey dig up
2) work with the county to lift the contamination designation
3) eliminate the "Brownfield Site" designation.
1) REMOVE ANY CONTAMINATION THAT THEY DIG UP
2) WORK WITH THE COUNTY TO LIFT THE CONTAMINATION DESIGNATION
3) ELIMINATE THE “BROWN FIELD SITE” DESIGNATION
