Virginia Key Master Plan on a fast track

That development-intensive plan for Virginia Key gets a quick pair of airings this month before a likely Miami City Commission vote on June 25. The preview a couple of weeks ago showed acres of facilities designed for people to drive to in their cars, with thousands of parking spaces in multi-story garages. Yes, there were mountain bike trails and a small BMX course in the plan -- but if you think you would be riding with nature all around, you should take a close look at the drawings at www.virginiakeymasterplan.com (go to public presentation 4).

The first of the June meetings is
Tuesday, June 9, before the Miami Waterfront Advisory Board, 6:30 p.m., at Miami City Hall, 3500 Pan American Drive, Miami, FL 33133.

Then there is a presentation to the city's Planning Advisory Board at City Hall on Wednesday, June 17, at 7 p.m., and finally the City Commission meeting Thursday morning, June 25.
