We had a great turnout at the public input meeting on February 18th at the Broward County Main Library Auditorium. Dedicated community leaders from various neighborhood and civic associations, as well as, business owners, and passionate locals made their voices heard.
We’re pleased to say that the majority of Fort Lauderdale’s community representatives were in favor of preserving the parcel at 301 N. Andrews Avenue for use as a community park.
Though there was disagreement as to where the new federal courthouse should be built (if at any of those locations), the primary consensus was that:
We had the pleasure of listening to the community’s feedback on this zoning issue, especially from Urban Planner, who made a heartfelt speech on the value of the One-Stop-Shop and how a community park is the missing piece in the buildout of Flagler Village.
Though it is still undetermined as to where the new federal courthouse will be located, we stood our ground and continued our 17-year defense of the One-Stop-Shop. We were proud to be a part of it.
You can send your letters to Mr. Ashish at Martin Luther King Jr. Building, 77 Forsyth Street, Atlanta, GA 30303; or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The more voices we rally behind this cause, the more likely we will have a beautiful community park at 301 N. Andrews Avenue for all to enjoy.
Again, thank you to everyone who attended on Tuesday! We will do our best to keep you updated on any developments regarding the new federal courthouse and the fate of the One-Stop-Shop.
