This would make it the most expensive stadium ever built in history. Can you please confirm that number and how it was calculated?

Comment on Beach rolls toward free citywide trolleys by Marjorie Ochstein http://www.miamitodaynews.com/2015/07/28/beach-rolls-toward-free-citywide-trolleys/#comment-10416 Fri, 31 Jul 2015 15:02:50 +0000 http://www.miamitodaynews.com/?p=28694#comment-10416 I just want to get from South Beach to North Beach without taking my car and fighting for a parking space. I also won’t be competing for a seat on the already full Miami Transit bus that is transporting people going longer distances. Another issue is paying full bus fare when I just want to go up the road a short way and come right back in about an hour or two. Really excited about using the expanded trolley service.

Comment on Marlins contract makes soccer next door a tougher game by ConcernedCitizen http://www.miamitodaynews.com/2015/07/28/marlins-contract-makes-soccer-next-door-a-tougher-game/#comment-10415 Fri, 31 Jul 2015 14:55:08 +0000 http://www.miamitodaynews.com/?p=28670#comment-10415 T, my man, you don’t want your team in that inaccessible of an area. Nor do you want it anywhere near the north part of Dade where you’re approaching Strikers territory.

Between the eminent domain battle they’re about to face with state legislators and the terrible restrictions in place by the Marlins, this thing is dead in the water IMO.

Wishing you luck. Please consider the well-being of those they plan to “re-locate” over this terribly risky business venture.

Comment on Miami Dade College in building mode by Ben Grimm http://www.miamitodaynews.com/2015/07/28/miami-dade-college-in-building-mode/#comment-10414 Fri, 31 Jul 2015 12:37:51 +0000 http://www.miamitodaynews.com/?p=28698#comment-10414 And so continues the rise of an education fiefdom. Remember when MDCC was a place for poor folks to get a college or vocational education. Soon poor people can just forget about college and get to maintaining Miami-Dade’s median household income at $33,000. Classic.

Comment on Historic site repeal may raise cost of bridge by Ben Grimm http://www.miamitodaynews.com/2015/07/28/historic-site-repeal-may-raise-cost-of-bridge/#comment-10413 Fri, 31 Jul 2015 12:34:43 +0000 http://www.miamitodaynews.com/?p=28702#comment-10413 The new owner of the Miami River Inn should buy the 109 parcel and turn it into a courtyard for the Inn. It could be rented out for special events or just used as a private park for visitors of the Inn.

Comment on Tri-Rail downtown link picks up steam by Ben Grimm http://www.miamitodaynews.com/2015/07/28/tri-rail-downtown-link-picks-up-steam/#comment-10412 Fri, 31 Jul 2015 12:17:18 +0000 http://www.miamitodaynews.com/?p=28692#comment-10412 I expect the Tri-Rail on CSX tracks to go “out of business” (though more likely to be subsidized even more by tax dollars) in a year or two after the FEC Tri-Rail comes online.

The CSX Tri-Rail links the two airports which has a low ridership. Other riders stop at Metrorail. However, FEC Tri-Rail connect Ft. Lauderdale and Miami, the cities, and will also connect to Metrorail (and MIA).

The FEC route will take riders away from the CSX route. Both routes can’t run without increased subsidies.

Comment on Cuban Museum due for wrap-up by Ben Grimm http://www.miamitodaynews.com/2015/07/14/cuban-museum-due-for-wrap-up/#comment-10411 Fri, 31 Jul 2015 12:09:43 +0000 http://www.miamitodaynews.com/?p=28456#comment-10411 From $150k to $1 mil?! Sounds like someone just found a good way to embezzle money from the federal and county governments. Miami now has a total of ____ Cuban museums. Not even the descendants of Cubans have ever visited one. Awesome!

The only issue would be more parking just as it would be at Taxpayer Park.

The typical crowd will be in the 17,000 range

Are you mad?! There’s only one road in and out of there and any additional access would still place all traffic in North Miami, where it would create a massive headache for all businesses and residents in that area.

Holy cow is that a dumb idea!
