This petition had 576 supporters
The undersigned individuals are requesting that the City of Miami HEP Board deny the removal of: One (1) 38 foot tall, 24 inch DBH Ficus Aurea on the eastern side of property and to require the most protective method be used to protect all the trees at:
3140 Day Ave
Coconut Grove FL 33133
OPPOSE the proposed design of the 2-story duplex + roof top terraces with stairwell enclosures submitted for 3140 Day Ave. (corner of Gifford Lane.) This duplex, as proposed and designed, will severely impact the tree canopy and roots of three (3) wonderful, mature Oak trees on the west side of the property, adjacent to Gifford Lane.
The proposed driveways, balconies, pools, fences, and extended rooftop stairwell enclosures of approx. 338 ft will severely impact the canopy and the roots, and must be redesigned to provide more space around the trees and lessen the negative impact on all remaining trees.
These trees possess substantial historical, aesthetic and environmental value, and are of great importance to the neighborhood and should be protected at all costs.
In addition, I/We OPPOSE the removal of one (1) 38 foot tall, 24 inch DBH Ficus Aurea (Strangler Fig) which is a Native species to South Florida on the east side of the property. This project should be redesigned to build around this tree.
We respectfully request that the Board grant the appeal, deny the Intended Decision, and require a redesign of the project around the trees using the most protective method for all the trees.
