You can’t stop people from coming because the beach is not your private playground but you can avoid being choked to death by by car exhaust fumes.

Comment on Rail derailed for bus rapid transit for it by Paul Orofino http://www.miamitodaynews.com/2015/01/14/rail-derailed-bus-rapid-transit/#comment-8036 Wed, 21 Jan 2015 22:08:56 +0000 http://www.miamitodaynews.com/?p=26136#comment-8036 The city of Miami, NOT Miami Beach, may become a “world city”. Miami Beach is a “beach” city..Leave it that way. We don’t need any more people on the beach as it is already way over crowded. Leave the Mass Transit to Miami, not Miami Beach.

Comment on No sweat to fill 30,000 condos by Ben Grimm http://www.miamitodaynews.com/2015/01/21/no-sweat-fill-30000-condos/#comment-8033 Wed, 21 Jan 2015 18:05:28 +0000 http://www.miamitodaynews.com/?p=26310#comment-8033 The article skews to realtors who believe all this is a good thing. In a region where the median income is $30,000 luxury condos mean nothing. Worst yet, luxury condos with parking. It’s like we’re building for people who don’t live here while provide no facilities for those who do. Where are the apartment buildings, small stores, parks, and other affordable places within the metro area. It maintains that 1980s aesthetic where downtown goes silent at night and weekends save for the tourists.

To developers a prospector is just as good as a resident. And politicians push this because they believe there will be more tax paying residents in their city. But we’ve not seen a lowering in taxes, have we? That’s because empty apartments don’t fill up the coffers. And businesses have yet to see the consumers that will give them an incentive to set up shop.

Comment on Rail derailed for bus rapid transit for it by M. Jimenez http://www.miamitodaynews.com/2015/01/14/rail-derailed-bus-rapid-transit/#comment-8032 Wed, 21 Jan 2015 16:42:18 +0000 http://www.miamitodaynews.com/?p=26136#comment-8032 What a joke.. waste of money on BRT that will just be stuck in traffic some way or another.. Grade-separated rail transit, not running in traffic, is the logical solution.. Too expensive? Build what you can when you can, and keep adding onto the system. I can’t imagine Miami 10 years from now with more people and no new rail transit built.. who plans a so-called world class city with no needed infrastructure? Makes no sense

Comment on First pharmacy college on way by Juna Jose RN LNHA http://www.miamitodaynews.com/2015/01/14/first-pharmacy-college-way/#comment-8021 Tue, 20 Jan 2015 16:09:25 +0000 http://www.miamitodaynews.com/?p=26139#comment-8021 Larkin Community Hospital might be small in Size , however it is known to tackle big project , big challenge, big idea. With Dr Michel and his team of qualified staff, the sky is the limit for Larkin. When I worked there as a Director of Education ,I loved the affiliation that the Hospital had with Ross University Medical School making Larkin a major teaching Hospital. Congratulation in the way for their aggressive team who put the pharmacy school on the way, Kuddo’s for larkin.

Comment on Rail station’s impact may alter neighborhood by SEFTA http://www.miamitodaynews.com/2015/01/07/rail-stations-impact-may-alter-neighborhood/#comment-7987 Fri, 16 Jan 2015 21:49:29 +0000 http://www.miamitodaynews.com/?p=26090#comment-7987 There is no doubt the scale of this project. The impact it will have on downtown is massive. I really don’t see being above a station will be an issue. The entrances of the buildings appear to be on street, separate from the station. It will be a very busy area but that is a part of living downtown. It seems to even be addressing the issue of being pedestrian friendly, in some ways.
The project is massive. The part that falls short, in my opinion, is the scale of the actual transit part. A heavy rail system with little connection to all the communities between Miami and Fort Lauderdale. I find it disappointing. AMTRAK could be heading directly into this station also.
People that choose to live above or near a transit hub because of the conveniences that come with it. A better transit solution would make for a better and more attractive location.
