Is it time for a Grove exit? A 'Grexit?'
It sounds familiar as sometimes many of us feel that this is happening to Coconut Grove; too fast, too many changes. What if Coconut Grove had its own Brexit, a "Grexit" (Grove exit) which many people have discussed over the years? What if we left the City of Miami? The Grove of course would have to reorganize itself, but we would be seceding, unlike places like Pinecrest or Doral or Key Biscayne, which became cities, they didn't leave cities to become their own city, they were unincorporated areas of the county which became incorporated.
Prime Minister David Cameron resigned. Who would resign in the Grove to make way for new leadership? Mayor Regalado, Commissioner Ken Russell? And would we throw them out of City Hall on Pan American Drive? After all, that's on Coconut Grove property, so would our own Mayor and commissioners take over the space now? Interesting thought.
It's an interesting concept. Of course if we left the City of Miami it wouldn't make a blip on world markets or any markets, it would just be us reclaiming our freedom that was lost almost 100 years ago. It would make a blip on Miami's tax base.
I'm not in favor of Brexit, but I do like the idea of Grexit.
What would you like to see if Coconut Grove became it's own city/municipality, like it was way back in 1925?
