Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

Margaritaville unanimous choice of Hollywood City Commission for Johnson Street project over Planet Hollywood

Tonight, around 7:20 p.m., following a two-hour meeting featuring lots of discourse about remaining true to founder Joseph Young's ideals as well as concern over aspects of financing for both bidders, the Hollywood City Commission voted 7-0 for Margaritaville Resort's proposal at Johnson Street on Hollywood Beach, leaving Planet Hollywood second in a two-horse race.

The city will now begin a 90-day period of exclusive negotiations with Margaritaville's principals aimed at creating a dynamic presence at the Central Beach area that has seen so many failed proposals over the past few decades.

If negotiations reach a deadlock in 90 days, the city will contact the group that was more formally known as the Ocean Resort and Village by Planet Hollywood and begin negotiations with them aimed at getting something up as soon as possible.

I should have photos and video of tonight's meeting here Thursday morning.
