Free parking in Wynwood for the Art Walk

Miami Parking Authority (MPA) is offering a full-day of free parking in Wynwood for the public who attend the Art Walk on Saturday, August 13 from midnight until midnight.

The area covered includes: the railroad tracks on the east to NW 6th Avenue on the west and from NW 20th Street on the south to N.W. 29th Street on the north.

Miami Parking Authority is already offering two hours of free parking to those who visit Wynwood until August 31.  "Wynwood is an important economic engine for the city of Miami and at MPA we want to make sure we vigorously offer our support in times of economic hardship.” said Art Noriega.

I had a friend who posted a photo of himself on Facebook with the text: 
*went to Wynwood*
*parked for free*
*didn't die*

That says it all. See you Saturday night!

On CBS news 8/12/2016, it was reported the Wynwood galleries, I guess, or their attorney's) want the taxpayers of Florida to pay $5,000,000.00, because of those mosquitoes who spread the Zica virus in their domain. Their attorney's should have advised them all you can't sue for lost profits in the State of Florida?

It's not about dying, it's about keeping your community safe. You can get bit by an infected mosquito, come back to the Grove and then a mosquito can bite you here and start spreading the virus in the Grove. Make sure to wear bug spray and help prevent the spread of Zika.

Zika is in Florida to stay and wreak havoc on the local population and economy for the foreseeable future unless the State comes up with a comprehensive plan to eradicate it in the next six months.

We beat the Aedes Aegypti vector mosquito in Florida 1959/60. We beat Ebola in Africa 2013/14. Presently this mosquito gets a foothold in well-to-do, influential communities because Bromeliads are sold at roadside stands, (one is on MacDonald street in Coconut Grove) @ about $10.00 each. Folks put them in their trees, the tree grows, the Bromeliads hold water where the Aedes Aegypti lay their eggs, presto, one Bromeliad can hatch out several thousand mosquitoes weekly. So you folks get a cheap ladder and turn your Bromeliads upside down every time it rains. This can easily eliminate, probably about 75% of these vector mosquitoes. This is for the benefit of those unborn babies. Jobie Steppe

It is predicted that this mosquito and Zika problem will end in 2-4 months when the weather cools down. Its important that until than we protect ourselves with repellant and remove all stagnant water. Mosquitos have been here long before we arrived and our efforts to illuminate them will not be more than partially effective. So the best we can do is tough it out for the next few months and take precautions. Wynnwood was an industrial area that became blighted. Visionaries like Tony Goldman and David Lombardi invested long a go. They did not rezone for more density, more height and more traffic. They repurposed buildings for art galleries, restaurants and shops. They created a destination as an outdoor street mural museum, that is now known throughout the world. The Miami Parking Authority saw this as a revenue opportunity and installed hundreds of parking meters. Plenty of money has been raised from meters, tickets and towing. Now they are offering temporary amnesty on parking because to bring back some folks. If the Wynnwood BID really wants to bring back customers that could start by getting all the parking meters out of there.

Zika isn't going away in 2 months, and it doesn't get cool enough in Miami to control the mosquito population on its own. There is one real solution but it's being held up by the same numbskulls that oppose GMOs, without knowing what GMOs are, or more properly that nearly everythign they come into contact with is a GMO.

either that, or we can act like scared ignorant characters from a 1950s movie, eg. the day the earth stood still.
