The other night there was a power outage in Center Grove. Apparently this is a frequent occurrence. I find it interesting for three reasons - 1) a friend asked me why the Gap was closed the other night, he assumed that they left CoconWalk; 2) a friend texted me at the moment of the blackout and was upset over it; 3) I just had a conversation with a friend in South Beach who said he had to renew his street parking permit, I told him we didn't have to deal with that here.
We received this from a friend, who addresses these issues:
I would love to find out who should be responsible for the power outages that happen frequently …On the 27th Avenue grid and last night at the movie theater and the Gap were without power - prior to the 4 pm movies …I feel the City of Miami gave permission to these high rises and FPL is responsible for the power - and with these frequent loss of power this cost the tax payers and the theater goers - I live in a ten person home owners association and as our power continues to go out our pump for the a/c goes out as well….We recently had to pay to have the pump worked on - and many were without a/c …I see in my bill FPL would like for us the customer to add an additional $5 a month for surge protection…that is ridiculous a - because if the power stayed on and the new buildings and builders were forced to have generators for the new construction there might be less power outages.
As well the parking is ridiculous …I see people park anywhere there is not a meter. I do not want the Grove to become like Miami and Miami Beach but we are heading that way. With resident-parking areas. It is not fair to those who live here and are residents.
Is there a solution to these issues ??? Thank you.
