Miami-Dade County Acknowledge and Assert THAT SW 272 ST is a road AND TAKE REQUEST ACTIONS

This petition had 595 supporters

A huge "fish farm"  is being built West of 217th Avenue on the North side of Southwest 272nd  Street and is claiming that Southwest 272, a local, rural. unpaved street does not exist.  To date, WITHOUT proper permits, they have attempted to fence off the north half of the road. That was stopped.   However, there have been large power poles placed down the center of the road to service the huge electrical needs of their project.  Whether those power poles were place there with permits or without permits has yet to be determined. Whatever, they don't belong in the middle of Southwest 272nd Street.  I know that road has been there since the mid-70's and there is ample evidence that it does exist. It is on county web site maps, and commercially produced maps, has county produced and placed street signage at the intersection naming it as such.   Regardless, the residents and businesses on the South Side of Southwest 272 Street may be in for a long and expensive legal battle to uphold their rights.  They use that road now to provide access and needed services to their homes, farms and businesses. They will continue to need it in the future not only to provide access and needed services to their homes, farms and businesses but also to protect their livelihoods, property values, and to grow their businesses.  We are pitted against a Huge multi-million dollar Corporation, the classic David and Goliath battle.  We are submitting this petition requesting that Miami-Dade County Acknowledge, Assert, and Declare that SW 272 Street is a road and that Miami-Dade County take all necessary action to require the removal of the encroachments on the right of way for a public road located at SW 272 Street, between 217 Avenue and 227 Avenue aka Epmore Drive.. 

If you would be willing to assist us by signing this petition we would be VERY grateful for your support.  If you are an "Oldie Goldie" like me and can attest to the fact that the road has been there since the 60's, 70's or 80's your signature is "Golden" as is mine.  If you can attest/swear  to the road being there in the 60’s 70’s or 80’s, please type in the earliest year to which you can attest/swear to the road being there  in the "I'm signing this because" box and tell us what year you know the road was there. That information is "golden".

You do not have to have ever driven or ever drive on that road to sign this petition.  Every signature is one step closer to our goal and is welcomed.  Thank you in advance for your support.  We truly need you.

PS  PLEASE be sure to type in your first and last names and your zip code in the space provided or we have to invalidate your signature.   We do not ask for your street address, or telephone number although the site will send you update messages as we post them.  Of course you can always unsubscribe from the site if you wish to.  Thanks again
