The wooden boardwalk from 23rd Street to 45th Street on Collins Avenue is being threatened with demolishment by the City to create a paved cement walk similar to what is now on South Beach. We want to preserve the charm, ocean view and safety of the Boardwalk for walkers and runners and keep bikes and skateboards banned. The Boardwalk will also ensure the safety of the dunes to serve as a buffer for any flooding from hurricanes and will also enhance the security of the area because of its elevation. As you can see now, the expansion of the cement walkway near the Eden Roc has resulted in the destruction of valuable sea grapes that take years to return and that serve to protect the seashore and the homes on the Beach.
PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION TO SAVE THE WOODEN BOARDWALK on Miami Beach to maintain the charm of the walkway and for all walkers and joggers to enjoy.
The Mid Beach Neighborhood Alliance was formed by community leaders who sought to create a platform for MidBeach residents to collaborate and communicate common interests effectively and mobilize support for important issues.
Some areas of discussions will include: Crime prevention, traffic safety, neighborhood beautification, municipal planning and zoning changes, as well as the need for more effective and consistent communications with elected leaders, government officials and the business community.
Founding partners of the MBNA include: The Continental Group, 5600 Condominium, Blue Diamond, Canyon Ranch Residence, The Caribbean, Carriage House, The Executive Condominium, Green Diamond, Imperial House, Maison Grande, Mosaic, Regency Tower, Seacoast 5151, Seacoast 5700, Kane & Company, and Siegfriend, Rivera, Lerner, De La Torre, Sobel.
Additionally, founding members of the new MBNA include: Miami Beach Commissioner and Vice Mayor Jerry Libbin, Matthew Abramowitz, Alejandro & Kate Arce, Avra Bank, David Basch, Matteo Bianchi, Kevin Brill, Alicia Casanova, David & Carol Cohen, Justin Fuhrman, Michael Girotto, Muhammad Hasan, Nancy Ladd, Roger Leifer, Simon Nemni, Chana Perl, James Richmond, Laverne Rodriguez, Miriam Ruiz, Kim Selmore and Gustavo Verite.
The MBNA strongly encourages MidBeach residents to attend and reach out to fellow neighbors to encourage their participation. The success of the MBNA is heavily dependent on resident involvement and community support.
We would like as many residents and condo buildings to join in the MBNA efforts to beautify and improve our beautiful mid-beach area.
Thank you in advance, Charlotte Tomic-Mowerman
