Angry neighbors confront developers

In Boston . . .

From the Boston Herald: 

“The whole area is beautiful. To start changing that is heartbreaking,” a neighbor said. “The whole project is throwing the neighborhood under the bus for money. ... We will be working to stop the project as a community. Not just me. As a community.”

From the Boston Herald article:
"City Councilor Michael Flaherty, who represents the district, told the crowd he spoke with U.S. Rep. Stephen F. Lynch, state Rep. Nick Collins, and City Councilor Bill Linehan, who also oppose the project.

“We’re 100 percent behind the community and we’re 100 percent opposed to what’s being proposed here,” Flaherty said."

In Miami it would be stated as "We're 100 percent behind Latin Builders Association and we're 100 percent opposed to what citizens want."

Coconut Grove residents should propose an ordinance to require builders to comply with historic and neighborhood integrity. Only way to prevent the white boxy tomb like structures. A friend visiting me asked why there is a n office building now built next door to my house.

You took the words right out of my mouth (fingers). I think part of the answer has to do with greed. Apparently people like Bostonians believe in preservation Don't we already have ordinances with those requirements?. All we need now is for our government to enforce them. My guess is most of the politicians in our area are transplants and don't care about preserving our neighborhoods.
