Dear Grove Isle Resident,
Welcome to the first island wide e-mail and web based communications program. We hope to enable a better and faster method of communications in order to improve our Grove Isle quality of life.
As most of you already know, there is a proposal to construct an 18 story glass and concrete high-rise building at the tropical tip of Grove Isle. The plans reveal that this structure will sit very close to Building Three and will replace the current Grove Isle Hotel, The club restaurant, social areas, bar and swimming pool. We may lose our walking path and the right to access the area.
The construction time span estimate has ranged from 1 ½ years to 2 ½ years. Many people feel that this modern structure would forever change the tropical and special environment of Grove Isle.
The newly formed Preserve Grove isle Committee, supported by the Grove Isle Board of Directors has been established, together with this special newsletter and email, to oppose this long term construction. We feel that this glass building would be detrimental and destructive to the character and aesthetics of our tropical island.
Over the last few weeks a large number of residents have asked how to stop or alter this situation. We formed the Preserve Grove Isle Committee to accomplish exactly that.
The first step in our opposition to this proposed building was to organize a powerful legal team to begin to formulate the needed steps in areas of zoning, land use and preservation of land style. This step has been taken and the work is in progress.
The next step is to activate the “social opposition” to this project, which we find to be very strong. To begin this step we ask you all to join us in our loud and vocal opposition to this by sending a very important and urgent message to a few important Miami authorities that need to hear our position. They will take our opposition to this project very seriously. Your voices will be heard.
Here is what to do:
SEND YOUR PERSONAL E-MAILS AND LETTERS IN A STAMPED ENVELOPE TO THESE MIAMI OFFICIALS. USE THIS SAMPLE LETTER OR USE YOUR OWN WORDS AND FEELINGS.
