Coral Gables Public Hearing: UM Proposes 25 Amendments to its Master Plan

On January 10 the City of Coral Gables Planning and Zoning Board will take up many, many changes in the UM Master Plan that will certainly affect the community through the construction of parking garages, demolition of buildings, additions to buidlings, the construction of housing on the Granada Blvd “park”, reduction of the university setback on Ponce de Leon, and many other elements to be changed that cannot be listed here as well as contemplating the enormous increase in traffic that will accompany these changes. The meeting will take place on January 10 at 6:00 p.m. and the Citiy Commission will take up the changes on January 23 and February 13.
